Rescued puppies

SV group received a call from their vet who informed them about puppies living next to a river trash pile. The river there is deep and moves fast. The puppies were crying and hiding in nettle bushes.

The river bank where puppies were hiding is too steep and slippery, and thick nettle bushes made it hard to see the puppies.

A few hours later and some logistics one of the Volunteers Svetlana Pankova was able to catch 3 puppies:

The puppies are from different litters and of different age but they all were infested with fleas:

The water turned red when bathing the puppies.

The tan puppy was adopted a few days after the rescue thanks to the social media post!

Thanks to rescue efforts and love for animals by Sterlitamak Volunteers 3 more lives were saved!

These two are brother and sister. The female puppy is very active and likes to explore her foster home and also chase her brother.

They had indigestion in the beginning but after some needed medical care they are  well on their way to blossom into active puppies. When they are ready enough to be adopted SV group will be looking for their forever homes.

Litter of 8 puppies in the dumpster

 A litter of 8 puppies left to die by the dumpster. 

The Volunteers is caring for a few litters of puppies at any given time and today we found another litter of newborn puppies right next to a dumpster. They were tossed like a trash to die. All black puppies, 8 altogether, but only 6 survived for far. When the Volunteers arrived to the spot 2 puppies were already dead.

The puppies are being bottle fed by our volunteers, one of them is a skilled foster mom who nursed back to life a few litters already; she is just 12-years old!

I cannot comprehend the thought process of people who are able to discard a living helpless being like that! But I am happy to see that good hearted people are everywhere and we can help the helpless and speak for the ones who are not able to speak for themselves!

We will be posting more updates about the puppies. We all hope that they will grow strong and find their loving parents.

If you would like to help these puppies please donated via the link below with the note “for puppies”. All proceeds are going to provide food and medical attention to the animals in need.

Thank you!

1 out of 5 puppies survived

This story happened just before Christmas 2014.

SV group received urgent plea for help about 3 survived puppies (there were 5 initially) on December 24th.  According to a good samaritan, the puppies were fostered by a family who could no longer take care of them and they got rid of them by abandoning puppies in the woods further away from the town without food, water and shelter in below zero temperatures.

As you can see the puppies were very malnourished and could barely stand on their own.  We do not know whether the “foster parents” (if they can be even called that) were feeding the puppies.

On December 24, 2014 the puppies were brought to one of the Volunteers homes.  All 3 puppies were shaking and lethargic, could not stand on their feet.  IV fluids were given right away.

Survived

Half an hour after the puppies arrived 2 puppies passed away. The only survived puppy was in a critical condition.  After failed attempts to ask social media followers to help with  transportation to take the puppy to the vet clinic, the Volunteer who fostered the puppy took the crate with the dying puppy on a bus and brought her to the vet.

The puppy turned out to be a girl. She was given necessary IV fluids and medications. The treatment continued at foster home.

Meanwhile the tiny bodies of 2 puppies who previously passed away had to be buried (the vet clinics do not provide cremation services). In order to properly burry the puppies SV group wrote a post on social media website asking for any volunteers to take them to the animal cremation center (located a few miles away from the town) or dig a grave for them. Nobody responded. The organizer of SV group and some of the Volunteers drove to the cremation center on New Year Eve. The weather was very brutal that day.

The survived puppy is doing better now. She is a very smart and polite dog. She can walk around her crate and now goes outside to potty. When her foster mom at school, she is very quiet and uses a pee pad. She also started eating on her own and gained some weight.  She learned how to give a paw and she was named Lapa (which means “paw” in Russian).

Lapa is a shy puppy but we know that when she is all well and healthy we will find great parents for her and she will blossom into a playful and happy puppy as she should be.

This is a very sad story with a happy ending for 1 puppy out of 5! We wished we had saved them all but the help came too late.

Please make it your resolution for 2015 to help animals in need. If you see or hear about animal abuse, please report, stop the abuse and help the animal in need. WE ARE THEIR VOICES AND WE CAN SAVE THEM!
