Will they have a happy ending?
In the mount Sannine area, approximately 2,700 m above sea level, lies a dog shelter where around 60 dogs (including 30 puppies) - this was the initial number but when we went there to save them, they were only 30 dogs in total - are starving to death and will soon freeze to their demise during the nearing winter months, since they are being fed barely twice a week and have nowhere to shelter themselves when it rains, snows or when temperatures go below zero and storms hit. This is not to mention the dogs who are tied all day long with no shelter above their heads and no freedom to run or fend for themselves, and who started biting at their tails or engaging in repetitive unhealthy habits.
Hiding under a truck or inside containers, you will find them. Fighting over the last piece of food given its scarcity, you will see them. Their health is deteriorating due to the cold and lack of nutritious food. They need medical treatment and vaccination. They need spaying/neutering because their number will increase in no time. They cannot talk but you can clearly see the pain in their eyes. Regardless, their stare is full of hope for a brighter future.
We had to do something. We couldn’t just turn a blind eye and leave them there to die all alone. We as the Perpetual Animal Watch (PAW) group of volunteers decided to take matters into our own hands to save those poor souls from dying a long and painful death and to give them at least their basic needs:
The need for a suitable environment.
The need for a suitable diet.
The need to exhibit normal behavior patterns.
The need to be housed with or apart from other animals.
The need to be protected from pain, suffering and disease.
Our plan was to move them to a safe and well-equipped temporary shelter in Aramoun and to give them the care and love they need until our own shelter is ready. This is what we succeeded in doing on November 25 with help from the Ministry of Agriculture and the Baskinta police. Not all the dogs were there. Only some lucky 30 made it. Some were found dead from the cold and others just disappeared into thin air. Finally! The dogs are ready for a bright life at their new temporary home.
However, it doesn't end here. We cannot do it alone and we will need your help to provide them with the necessary medical care, we will need your help to cover their spaying/neutering, food and transportation expenses as well as the shelter rental, running costs and maintenance for at least a year for the 30 dogs plus the 10+ dogs who were already at the shelter in Aramoun.
We want them to live the life they deserve and make up for the couple of months they lived in that hell shelter!
For that, we will need your help!
We can only do it together!
