Hi, if it’s possible I would like to ask for one moment of your time. I try and rescue/rehome strays in my country since there are very few pet shelters, so individual action is necessary. It’s easier than it sounds, I mostly “catch” and take in not very feral strays for a period of time, get them used to people and toilet train them, then find them a new home. The expenses tend to be a little high, but I make enough that I can cover a check up, some vaccines, and a neuteuring/spaying, sometimes the person who will adopt the dog even pays about 50% so its handled pretty much most of the time. I rescue about one-two strays per 3 months.
Which brings me to now, and to a case that is very much out of my league financially. There is a dog that my brother found by the side of the road in a rural area, it cant stand up for more than a minute before falling sideways, howls in pain all the time, and it throws up blood. We think its been hit by a car, and the vet says that it must have brain damage. Its skin is in a terrible condition, but most of the damage is in its hind legs and a traumatic brain injury. I’ve bought the dog to a vet, and have been quoted 5000DH for X-rays and a fullbody checkup and scans, which is about 500$ US, not taking into consideration the possible treatement and medication costs, to put it into perspective my paycheck is 6000DH (600US). I am currently taking care of the dog, but need to bring it up to the vet ASAP and pay fullprice. I’ve started raising money locally, but I hope Tumblr can help me out as well. Sparing a dollar or a reblog means a lot. I’ve put a picture up with the post, but didn’t attach the video since it could be triggering to some , if you would like to see it then feel free to DM me. And thank you to all.
Help out if you can, folks.
