Adoption Events and December 2015 Results

In the first 18 days of December 2015 BAGIRA group of volunteers took into their homes 31 animals to foster, a few puppy litters and adult dogs are being cared for by the group (food is provided by BAGIRA).

Volunteers foster the animals in their homes (usually small flats) and the financial support is provided by people like you.

Unfortunately,  this month’s adoption events  were not very successful.  The past 2 events none of the animals found their homes.

Look at the volunteers and animals standing outside for hours during adoption events:

Adoption events are organized by the volunteers who foster homeless animals. All animals are previously dewormed and vetted.

This work cannot be done without your help!

Please make a small donation to BAGIRA group.  Anything will go a long way.

Thank you and happy holiday!

Spinning kitten

A few days ago SV group received online post about little snow white kitten with blue eyes living on the street. The worried Samaritan wanted to make sure the kitten was safe before temperatures outside dropped (and they did, now it is snowing, yes, in October!)

One of the Volunteers went to  the meet with the lady who caught this kitten and her orange tabby brother.  Both were taken into their foster home followed by a vet check up.  As usual they had flee infestation, bloated bellies and ear infection.

The same day foster mom started noticing that snow white kitten was making circles as if her head was dizzy and she was spinning in one spot instead of walking (video).

The vet prescribed treatment which will be 4 shots a day for 40 days!  Snow white (let’s call her that name) is crying and not liking the treatment. She had stomach issues after the first set of shots and did not eat anything, but 2 days later she is doing mush better and her movement has improved. She is not spinning that much and walks almost normally.  See the video.

Kitten on the side of the road

The founder of SV group was driving outside the city when she thought that she saw something in the grass on the side of the road.

Then she asked her husband who was driving to pull over and go back.

She was right and it was a little black and white kitten.  There were no houses nearby, only the roads. The kitten was left there to die.

After the initial check up we found out that the kitten has ringworm that is now being treated. The kitten is being kept separately from other animals due to ringworm.

Adoption Event #255

Sterlitamak Volunteers group has found homes for 8 previously homeless animals. 8 puppies and 2 kittens went to their forever homes on Sunday, March 15, 2015. 

All animals have sad stories and we hope now they will have only happy endings.

For 3 months of this year 2015 the group has already saved over 80 homeless animals. The work of the Volunteers is priceless and they have the biggest hearts! Either it is a litter of new born puppies whose mother was killed or a cat that was hit by a car and paralyzed – the Volunteers are there to help! Most of the Volunteers are middle and high school students who do not have cars (yes, it is a privilege) and who live miles away from each other but that does not stop them from picking up stray or injured animals all over the town and driving them (in public transportation sometimes) to the vet clinics or foster homes. They are doing it all year long in any weather.

Sterlitamak Volunteers solely depends on the donations from the public and people do help with whatever they can: food, toys, medications, old clothes, free rides, donations and words of encouragement.

Thank you all who help animals in need!

Puppy hit by a car – Update

We received the news about the puppy’s condition and it is not really good. The pelvis is broken and one of the broken bones is obstructing the big intestine preventing the puppy from defecating. The puppy is suffering and whimpering because she has not popped for a week now.

The vet proposed to have enema done and a surgery to fix the bone after which the puppy will have a 50/50 chance of survival, but we will have to try! Otherwise, the puppy will die within a few weeks.

Right now the Volunteers are trying to give  puppy an enema to help relieve the pain.

We have started the fundraiser for the surgery, food and medication for the puppy (it is a girl as we found out), she will also need to be spayed during the surgery.

Puppy hit by a car

This week Sterlitamak Volunteers received a message from a lady who noticed a stray puppy crying on the side of the road. The puppy was in the area since September and an ad was created to find him a new home.

She took him into a shed by her house and emailed SV group asking for help. Th puppy was whimpering and could not get up on his legs.
The rural area where the accident happened is 20 minute ride from Sterlitamak, Russia. In spite of the late night, there volunteers to help this poor dog and people drove to the place and took him to temporary shelter, where it is warm (right now the temperature in that area is 14F or -10C at night!!!) and there is food and water provided.

Next day the puppy was taken to get x-rays done and now we are waiting for the vet to come over and assess his condition. The vet clinic does not have x-ray equipment and the vet clinic closes early, so the vet makes house calls for  200 rubles or $4.50.

The puppy is eating and drinking water, can urinate but not able to defecate – he whimpers when he wants to go. The x-ray technician said that there is something wrong with his pelvis and the right thigh. We are waiting on the news from the vet’s visit and will be posting the verdict later.

For now we wanted to start a fundraiser for this puppy to help him get better.

I will be making more posts about the puppy to inform about his progress. As you can see even $5 can help tremendously, so please donate to help this puppy.  This is one of many homeless and stray dogs wondering the streets of Russia and we can help, maybe not all but we can start by saving one at a time!
