You may remember back in February 2016 there was an appeal to help 78 podencos on Tenerife. Here is the news - best of all, all the dogs are clear of the filaria (heartworm). Final result PROJECT TIERRA BLANCA FILARIA FREE nearly 8,000€ worth in heartworm treatments received, thanks! Amazing!
'So many things have happened since we started this wonderful project. Thanks to Podencoworld and dozens of supporters who donated the cost of the treatment for all these podencos.
We received the 78 filaria treatments that were needed and managed to have some extra treatments for the future as thanks to an auction carried out by volunteers of Podencoworld it was possible to create a piggy bank which we have already been using for new filaria positive arrivals.
As you can see it's not something that is done in a month or two, or 10 ... but we are still here.
Did you know that many of the lucky dogs that became filaria negative thanks to this project, have already been adopted? Many!
Utha, Pintas, Alhambra, Nico, Laikilla, Cincuenta, Baby Gris, Dumba, Juanito, Magia, Nino, Jefe, Sopli, Simba2, Sahara, Navidad, Nochebuena... all of them found their forever loving home because they had the chance to beat the filaria!
Isn't it a wonderful chain? The project, the competition fundraisers, the donations, the treatments, the shares...and finally the happy endings!
Baby Gris got the 12th filaria treatment donated by E H van der Molen, Stefanie Kreufinger, Yvonne Lakerman and "anonymous, and was the 24th of this project to beat the filaria.
And now here's the latest news -
Number 63 of 78 Rapa: filaria negative thanks to Diny Prause (es)
