A few months ago they gave us notice that a very weak skeletal sparrow had appeared in a field. We took care of her and she has since been recovering in foster care. As you can see below CANDELA doesn't look the same, it's great.
Her foster can no longer take care of her, and we believe that entering the shelter would be a very sudden change for her, so we ask you to make a space in your home for her.
We take care of feeding, vetting, etc.. Just needs a home until she finds her forever family.
My female galgas were usually around 23kg in weight, my males 25-27kg. So I find it impossible to imagine a galga weighing only 11kg!
This is Candela who arrived at the end of May in a deplorable state, weighing only 11 kg. Here she is at 19kg. She is 1 and half years old. She is still scared of humans. But gets along great with dogs.
So now she is hoping for a forever family. Adoption in Belgium through Carole van Tielen.
Puntanimals is a non-profit association created to help abandoned and mistreated animals. The idea was born from the hands of a fighter, animal lover who wanted his dream of helping those most in need to come true. We are located in the town of Punta Umbría (Huelva). Since before having the shelter, we already collected the animals that we found and we looked for a home where they were safe and had their needs covered. Officially we have been operating since 2011, it was when we decided to rent a place to be able to protect all the animals while we look for a definitive and responsible adoption for them.
This is a weblink to the hundreds of dogs in Protectora Scooby shelters in Medina del Campo, Valladolid, Zamorra and Palencia. There are dozens of galgos in there.
The main purpose of this post is a) to illustrate just how many dogs are in the Scooby shelters hoping for forever homes and b) to appeal for help to fund them all. This isn't counting all the horses, donkeys, cats, poultry, goats, cows...all rescued by Scooby and needing food and medication.
Please help, even if it's just to join Teaming please help.
If you haven't room in your home to adopt anymore deserving animals, why not try Virtual Adoption. Virtual Adoption is where a person or organisation supports an animal in a shelter rather than taking them into their own home. Scooby Medina has animals which they would love finanaia help with their feeding and care.
There are lots of animals to choose from, including:
Granny - an oldie
Donja - has only one ear
Zuki - had gangrene before arriving at the shelter and lost both of her back paws;
Paris - the gentle giant and an old faithful
Alba the albino horse is there with
Cayenne y Pepper, the donkeys and Axel & Robin our new goats. All overseen by Blackie the head
of the cats in our cattery!
