A few days ago, an animal advocate in Sarajevo found four puppies in a burnt out, ruined building.
The puppies were struggling to survive alone, as they had no mother. We don’t know what happened to her.
The puppies’ stomachs looked swollen with parasites and they were overall in a bad condition, with matted fur and runny eyes. They were fed, given bedding we were contacted to see if we could take the puppies away from this awful place, to safety.
Here is a video showing how starving they were, gobbling up the food brought to them:
We went to rescue them from certain death or at best, a terrifying life on the streets. With help from friends we managed to catch all four, wrapping them up in blankets.
We took them immediately to a vet for examination and then to pension (kennels).
From today there will be no more hunger or freezing in that awful draughty ruin where someone left them. They are finally in a safe place where they will have regular meals and where they will be warm. We took them for a check up straight away as they were full of worms, they had stomachs like beach balls. They’ve been dewormed and given vitamins. A big thank you to to everyone who helped us catch the babies and get them somewhere safe. They have no mum, they were left to fend for themselves and die in that ruin…
We have named these lovelies Duke, Prince, King and Count. Thanks to quick response, some money was donated to help with the initial costs, but we still need funds to make sure they stay safe and off the streets and are monitored by the vet.
