From Angie McReady, who has been rescuing and rehoming podencos for many years.
'As I suspected Amber is low level leish. She's clear for everything else.
We can't start treatment until shes finished feeding her puppies. Having said that, I have now noticed she has a split teat. The puppies are now 5 weeks old and eating themselves so I think it#s time for her to stop feeding them so she can heal
I know some people may say it's too early, and had she not got the split teat she would carry on for another couple of weeks or so.
Again treatment is going to cost money. I'm really struggling as I'm not getting the same support as I did before I took a break from rescue after the distemper outbreak. It'z such a shame as I'm now very hesitant to take in anymore rescues as I can't do this without your help. And I really really do hate asking x'
The abandonment of hunting dogs is never ending. Thank goodness for the rescue and rehoming associations. And one of the largest is Scooby. This sweet young podenca is now safe with Protectora Scooby Palencia.
'This beautiful podenquita had to take a bath just after arriving at the shelter. We do not know where she has been living but gave off an unbearable smell of manure. Although in the pics it is not appreciated, she's quite thin and has problems of skin and mouth. The poor girl is quite scared but we trust that little by little she will gain confidence and so that a new and happy life can begin soon.
Your regular sponsorship will ensure that the hounds we rescue will be able to receive the care and support they need before they move to their forever home. e.g. this will help with transport costs, vet bills, vaccinations, pet insurance etc and much more.
'Adam and Rocky have a chance to go to the USA to continue rehabilitation as we do not have the facilities at the centre and NE Ohio Greyhound Rescue already have two of our podencos .They will offer a forever home in their sanctuary for Rocky as they specialise on helpimg the oldies and between us we will find a home for Adam when he is ready
We need your help on this .we already have some money raised towards Rockys vet bills but need your help also towards the transport to the USA
Can i ask you to share.share share this post please for these boys as Sharing is Caring
Together We Are Stronger
Bev Farmer of Podenco Friends tells the story of this lucky podenco pup.
'This wee pup came to the finca yesterday (28/1/2020). Found alone by the roadside he made the best decision of his life. He didn’t run off when Ines stopped her van and she scooped him up and took him the vets in the village close to us. They called and asked if I can help so here he is. He is about 8 months old very skinny and at the moment overwhelmed with everything. We need to give him a name so any suggestions what we should call him.
