Bianca was so happy to see Nicky again. Brushed and getting out to walk. Green grass, thats life.
King was found by a volunteer very sick and probably abused. He is doing progress and this time our volunteer could brush him. We want to adopt him and got a wonderful home. However, the rescue woman doesn’t want to adopt him outside Italian border.
We are heartbroken about this decision!
Thank you all for making this Sunday special for the animals, and of course for all volunteers.
For the first time I flew to Portugal, Lisbon to meet the organisation that are doing a lot of changes for the animals without a home or stuck behind bars. It was a pleasure meeting them and the veterinarian team behind the changes.
It was heartbreaking to come to the shelter that is communal shelter. The smell, the cages the sad eyes, the hopeful eyes the hopelessness My tears came but as I said, ‘its not a weakness to show tears as long as you want to do something to change the world’
This is how they sit for years, alone. A 2 kg rat is passing in between the bars to eats some dogfood. No one goes in to them to pet, only a hose of cold water is being washed in splashing the dogs. No blankets, nothing. On weekends no one.
I met a homeless dog that belongs to a homeless man. But they are rish they belong to each other and they got their freedom.
Are these dogs normal in their head after years in these boxes?
Many are! AWL flew out one girl that had been there for quiet some time. Another young dog that was being abandon by its owner.
Thank you Mafalda and Raquel for showing me around!
I flew with Lufthansa and what a wonderful trip back to Germany. So much love for the dogs.
I had Snuffle as a hand luggage and Arischa flew cargo. I was nervous for her. But everything went wonderful.
This is what we do; find, evaluate, treat, love, medicine, family
Look with your eyes, brain and heart heart emoticon not only eyes.
I took her to a veterinarian who screamed that we had to euthanize this dog. It was probably full of diseases!
I don’t keep animals alive only to have them suffering, but I know that sometimes we have a tendency to look too much with our eyes.
The vet then said, this dog would cost a lot of money medical wise. It was cheaper to euthanize the dog.
I refused. My mind and heart said something else.
We changed veterinarian. Tests were being made…no diseases!
I found a family, a fantastic family.
They never had any excuses to leave her behind even if they moved around the world.
No excuse even when they got a child.
” I am donating $1000 in memory of a dog who passed away that was rescued by Araceli Camacho but also for your recent dog friend losses too, Joey’
Little ‘ Dieguito’ was born on May 3rd, 2006 in Los Angeles CA in the humble home of the Camacho Family! He passed on, unexpectedly, November 20th, 2015. He was the second of 7 siblings. He was a joy to the Canacho home for 9 beautiful years! His unconditional love taught people around him many lessons.
Being a dachshund type dog his body shape caused him to have a herniated disk and that led to his departure from this earth. His family did everything possible to make him better but it was nearly impossible! His pain and suffering was unbearable for him and those who treasured him.
When it was time to let him go his caring mother, Araceli, held him until his last breath left his body and his spirit went to heaven. The Camacho family misses him so much yet they know that he is no longer in pain and at peace. As Araceli said to me “he will forever remain in our hearts! Dieguito we will always love you! “
Bless you Dieguito
Jolene Callahan took him into her home during the health check and passport (helped us great during that time it took, Thank you)
