Finally we managed to catch this young dog who was roaming around the football pitch in San Isidro. Just in time it appears because she gave birth to 8 puppies last night in the refuge. Today she goes to a foster home where it’s quiet for her to nurse her babies.
Today we announce that the new President of Live Arico PAWS, Marc Van Den Reek, who, as many of you know, has been administering the shelter for some time. Many thanks to Derrick Lynes, who was president during the transition year, and with your help, the association has paid all the debts and made firm plans for the future.
We will continue to build on the good work and will continue improving the environment for the animals we care for in order to offer them a safe and peaceful refuge.
Pictures from our Community Day at the Live Arico shelter, thank you all for visiting us especially the children from Wingate School. Thanks to Masha for these wonderful photos.
Here are three of our new arrivals (Annie, Roti and Marco) excluding mark who has been here for ever it seems. Happy and sociable enjoying some fun time.
This Husky was left in someone’s garden last night in Parque de la Reina, has anybody got any information about this beautiful female?
Pumpkin, now called Ozzy had the remaining part of his partial leg amputated yesterday 14/3/19. It was imperative as when he runs/jumps his stump bumped on the floor making it very painful and potentially dangerous for him. Prior to adoption he was a Live Arico litten looked after by our partners KittyCatz. (www.Kittycatz.net).
Its still not clear how poor Vicki came by her injuries. These photos were taken when she first went to the vets. Since then she has been every day.
As you can see she has had the dead tissue removed to try and help the healing process. Pictured here with our vets whose care and attention is helping to pull her through both physically and mentally from whatever caused these injuries. Hopefully she will have less trips to the vets now, although she doesn’t appear to mind as she is such an amenable and loving dog.
We have not be able to ascertain who owns Vicki or where she came from. Likewise we have no information about how her injuries actually occurred.
She is improving and goes to the vets every day for treatment. Tomorrow she will be sedated and the dead tissue inside her mouth will be removed, giving a clearer view as to whether the wound can be stitched. She can move her jaw better now and hopefully after another operation she will improve even further. She is a lovely dog who actually appears grateful for the help she is receiving. If you have any information about Vicki please contact Arico, help us to help her.
Great fun and a very chilled out fundraiser at the shelter today (24/2/19),…maybe its the presence of the dogs. They were all competing for attention, especially from the children. Some really good entertainment from our Spanish hosts, great food and hospitality. I am especially pleased the volunteers that work in the charity shop and some customers had a chance to visit the dogs and see what their hard work and donations are achieving.
This years goal is to build a water area (swimming pool may be too grand a word) for the dogs as the summer months are soooo hot and hard on the dogs, the ability to splash about would make such a difference to them.
If you would like to help and donate our paypal is [email protected]
Many thanks to all the entertainers, businesses and individuals and Sandra Anne Astley for all your help who offered raffle prizes to help make the fundraiser a success, total raised shall be published shortly.
