Lynn Paulrodos lives in northern France and has opened Avalon Animal Sanctuary as her collection of rescued animals has increased, which includes dogs, horses, goats... Here is the story of her most recent arrival - Destiny, a Gran Canary podenca found starving, chained up in a cave, and obviously used as a breeding machine!
'DESTINY aka Cave Girl was found chained up in a cave in Gran Canary in August 2017 and taken to Pet Pals GC. She was under 8kgs and had a large mammary tumour with a cluster of smaller tumours inside and also tumours on her lungs---she's only just 5yrs old!!
It was decided to give her a chance and she was operated on on 4 Sept --the vet removed 14 mammary tumours and 2 hernias!! I was asked to help her as it's not known how long she will live and no-one else was interested to take her---she is also Filaria (heartworm) positive.
