Mom Dog Searching for Help

0
A lonely mom is trying to survive

She is walking alone on the streets of Campania Italy, searching for food. She is pregnant and needs plenty of extra food.

Years earlier, it was easy for the strays to survive on the streets since the garbage was being thrown out on the streets by the people. Now due to clean up on the streets, many strays dogs are starving to death.

Rossella Shelter saw the female dog and took her in. Tired, but thankful she fell asleep on the blankets that were put out for her in the box.

Peacefully she could give birth. Not everyone is “lucky” like her, but for her let us continue helping her and her puppies.

Please help us help her and the shelter, by providing vaccination, de-worming, puppy food, puppy pads, and for the mother; nutrition, vaccination, sterilization, food, de-worming.

That’s Amore!

When a Rat is Getting Sick

0

One morning our rescue rat Samantha started to walk in circles and tilting her head to the side. We rushed her to the veterinarian last Monday. The veterinarian told us that it could be a neurological problem.

Samantha got three shots;  for pain, vitamins and cortisone. We made a re-check appointment a couple of days later. However, if not better, come in right away.

Samantha became a little better but still, she fell when she tried to wash herself.

Friday came and we took Samantha with us to the appointment. We were nervous, still, she wasn’t herself. She hadn’t been eating, only drinking, –plus yogurt–. My favorite veterinarian Stephanie (Frau Spotl) greeted us when we walked into her clinic. She took Samantha and looked into her ears.

Bingo! Samantha got an ear infection!

Bacteria test was being made and sent away to the laboratory. Meanwhile, Samantha got antibiotic, pain medicine and protein food with her home.

It was amazing to see Samantha a couple of hours later, eating and feeling so much better. Her caretaker Olivia was most happy. We all had been scared to lose Samantha.

Why I like my veterinarian so much, some have asked me.

She listens, she teaches, she cares and she laughs. That’s for me is a Golden Keeper. Down in southern Italy, I had the same veterinarian, Dr. Damiani for four years before moving to Germany. His passion and teaching will I always carry with me.

That’s Amore!

There are amazing people that are making changes for those volunteers that are working hard trying to rescue as many animal lives as possible — with their non-profit organizations.

Many times feeling unseen and (insane).

SKULLPUP is one of them that are saying, “We cannot do what you are doing right now but we want to support your work!”

I love Skullpup vision and mission, think if everyone thought and executed the ideas of helping in one way or another. And what is so cool too; they are changing organizations every second month. How wonderful, making several hardworking volunteers (organizations) to be seen.

A portion of proceeds supports animal rescue groups.

Order these amazing hats and skull bag and show the world you are celebrating the dogs you love and lost.

That’s Amore!

Julia_Polo_Horse_kisses_Olivia

If you read my last blog entry about “hate ” you will understand this  “follow up”.

Olivia, my daughter started to learn how an organization works behind the “scenes.” She was learning more about how to rescue animals, and also how to promote a campaign. How to receive help from others, and how to collect donations.

There are numerous of kind people out there that truly want to rescue animals, but don’t realise (many times) the tough work. All the free hours that are put in volunteering every day. Well, I wanted to teach/educate her together with my son Max, about the wonderful and also difficult situations it means to run an organization.

Together we started, “Olivia rescue Horses Campaign”.

Little would we have known, and understand, that some people could be rude and make false accusation about her work. –You can read all about it in the last blog entry–

Olivia became very sad, and I could saw her energy going down. As a mother, you want to protect your children, like a momma bear.

Amazingly, there were many people that read my words, wrote back and made beautiful comments about Olivia, and her work with the horses. Me the Momma Bear, got very happy emotional and very thankful to all you that wrote with love to her (and me).

I read them all for Olivia.

We talked about it if we would let these negative people have power over us.

Olivia thought for a minute, and then said, “Mom, no one should quiet any actions made out of Love.”

I couldn’t agree more, and I am so proud of her, that she feels that strongly in her heart and mind. Of course, I will support her all the way, however,  Momma Bear will take a (small) step back.

Yesterday, I and Olivia went to a polo horse stable to meet Julia a 16-year-old polo-horse. Again we heard the soul whisper, “I am someone!” I cannot describe the feeling of meeting a soul that is tired, their mind is tired, their body is tired. But I recognize the feelings.

It is heavy!

Right away, Julia felt comfortable with Olivia and rested her head in Olivia’s arms. Gently, Olivia kissed Julia above her eyelid. “I see you!” she whispered back to the beautiful soul.

A vibrate moment of peace occurred in the stable.

Some people might ask me, why rescue another horse when the founds are coming slowly for the other Animals?

Its not an easy answer, since it is a feeling I have inside of me since my childhood. Several of you know me and my history,  and some of you have read my books where I mentioned my tough childhood. How I as a child, many times had to visit the hospital due to being abused.

I was being badly abused for years.

No one dared to stand up for me and speak, to end my horrible situation. I still can recall the feeling when the persons in my life looked at me with sad guilty embarrassed eyes, and then walked away. I was totally alone.

Your brain stops working. You are going on half energy to survive, not to be able to remember. The same with Animals in stress.

They called me dumb.  I was absolutely not dumb, it was my defense mechanism,  my brain had to disconnect to be able to survive. You are waiting to be saved. Like Animals.

Children and Animals we react the same.

This is why, I cannot walk away without at least try, and to beg YOU to help Julia to the retirement she so deserves. That we not only look at her picture with pitty but that we actually will do something together for sweet Julia.

Olivia and I cannot do this alone, let us become a team, and give Julia a wonderful retirement.

That’s Amore!

The Horses Still Need Help

0

The transformation with our three rescue horses are a very fantastic gift back to follow, but we cannot end our help only because they look great on the outside.

They still need our help with healthy nutritional food, their medicines, and dental work. Veterinarian visits, and sometimes x-rays.

We are running out of funds and truly need your help.

Rihanna_examined

GummiBears Heart medicine cost 100 euro/month.

Blood tests to monitor how the medicines are working/helping

Vaccinations are 50 euro per horse/ six months (+-)

Farrier 60-80 euro per horse/8-12 weeks, since their hooves are still in bad shape.

Dentists are coming up this weekend, and that will be around 150 euro per horse.

We cannot give up on the horses because of the “costs” and our values. GummiBear, Rihanna, and Miracle have all worked so hard for us humans. For our pleasure and many times our ego. Isn’t it our job to give thanks back?

This summer we will start different new projects. Our horses play an important role in our “Horses Healing Children”,  and the Therapeutic Horse Program for Children with special needs. Keep an eye out for our announcement.

Also, we have several horses waiting to come to our Sanctuary. It’s amazing people all around Europe have heard about our fantastic transformation with the rescue horses.

They are getting all the treatments they need. We listen to the horse’s desires, and “special” compose their programs for the days. Not all rescue horses want to walk in a pasture all days.

In my experience, many of the horses have gone into their own “mind” to survive their daily work. Some are racehorses, polo horses, riding school horses, private horses, every horse that hasn’t been treated with respect can get a mental breakdown. When they come to us we let them rest and work only by observing them.

Healing and Animal Communication.

It only takes a few days until the horses open up. Trust has been built between us.

When the horse gets an ok from the veterinarian healthwise, we create what the horses want and need.

GummiBear 25 years-old, would like to eat the whole day 🙂 and he loves his walks and play ‘follow John” in the riding arena, be out in the green big pastures. Like an old man appreciating his retirement. He loves Rihanna, our other rescue power girl. He loves company. He doesn’t want to be “alone” among working horses anymore. So we let him have that (not overeating of course).

Miracle 28 years old (soon) loves to be part of the horse community, walking around together with me greeting them all, eating a lot of carrots, and be part of everything we do. Sometimes riding a little, but only slow pleasure riding looking at all the trees.  So we let him have that.

Rihanna, 20 years-old, our power Princess Warrior girl. What a fighter, and clear in what she wants (and not). Former successful jumper, then the success went dark. Tried as a Riding school horse, but to fast. Left in a box. The Lady at the place called and asked me to take her.

Rihanna is having an amazing mind of her own, and she clearly has shown us she doesn’t want to be on vacation. Rihanna loves to be ridden (carefully) at the jumping arena, to be among the other jumpers, to smell the atmosphere.

Now, can she still jump? Only “bunny” jumps, and we are not out after a jumping horse either. However, what makes her happy will make her into a content (happy) horse.

Surely, we make her be in the atmosphere of her past good memories, and we, we let her remember.

We let them all remember, what it ones felt to be appreciated.

That’s Amore!
