This is my home.. If you can call it that. I’m imprisoned within these walls without even a window to look out of. My water is green and yet I’m meant to drink it still. I’m being eaten alive by insects, I have no bed to lay on and the food is like eating cardboard. The howls of other dogs who surround me keep me awake at night. They cry for their families, just for someone to love them!
Can you see the marks on the walls behind me? That’s my many failed attempts at escaping this hell hole. I can’t get out, unless someone takes me out. I wonder who will? Will anyone? And where will they take me? Will it be to a new life or a vets room..?
Will I fall asleep and wake up with someone caressing my fur and telling me I’m a good dog? Or will I just never wake up...?
I can’t answer these questions but YOU could.. YOU have the power to free me or any dog in here.. I guess the real question is,
I received the following message from a reader. If anyone knows the answer to her question, please contact Fiona direct.
'I am wondering if you can help me. I was in Spain, in Cabo Roig, a couple of weeks ago, and as I always do, I fed the stray cats.
I read this article in the Costa Blanca News on 11th May about the construction of cat shelters in some areas. Unfortunately, however, there was no mention of the intention to build shelters in Cab Roig.
Would you happen to know of any contact details, whom I could email to request that they construct shelters in Cabo?'
Who knows what goes through the mind of a dog when either another family pet, or a family member, dies? My animals (including my horse when his mate died) get depressed, sleep a lot, go off their food. Here's an interesting article about a funeral home which lets a dog say farewell to it's deceased owner.
Ibizan Hound Rescue is one of the first podenco rescue and rehoming associations with hundreds of hounds now happily settled in forever homes around the globe. Here's a link to their website, their story and some of the stunning hounds currently waiting in the hope of finding a place in the heart and home of someone.
The government put 20 statues of dogs in the streets of Barcelona. To make people ware not to abandon dogs. The dogs are wearing a QR code which tells the story of an abandoned dog....This is great !! Story here with a map of the sites.
'Everyone has always answered our call to help sharing our podencos for adoption and we have had great success but again we ask for you help. Some of them have been with us over a year and although safe its no substitute for a real family. To find homes in Spain for Podencos is limited so we look to other countries and we ask for your help to share their details as much as possible. This is the lifeblood of any rescue unless people are aware we have so many waiting for their forever sofa they will remain here.....
These are some of our ours for adoption we have more that are not ready for their next stage in their lives. We have a number reserved due to leave soon and have some waiting to come to us please hit the share button and lets find these their forever homes. Unless stated all of them have been tested negative for Leishmania, Filaria, Ehlrichia, and anaplasma all are sterilised unless they are puppies. Thank you for your support
