This is Santiago. His injuries indicate he had been struck by a vehicle and left to die. The xrays showed a severe impact. His broken femur was pressing on his intestines causing difficulty in defecating. There were sharp awns found in his ears, and through his genitals. He was covered in ticks and had been eating stones to try to survive. This caused him to vomit up not just the stones but live worms also. He was one quarter of his normal body weight and had to have his strength improved before surgery. Now happily living in Denmark.

“The shelter is given no official funding to cover any of the costs of surgery, aftercare or food, but relies purely on donations and monthly “godparent” donations to help support the wonderful work and dedication of Ana and her helpers. You can become a “godparent” of a cat or a dog for as little as £2.50 per month. Please be kind enough to find out how you can help by looking at any of the following.”

This is Melek. This poor cat could only drag himself along the ground. He was under nourished, dehydrated, had infected eyes and fly larvae inside his anus. He therefore could not defecate. Gun lead was found in his groin but although it did not hit the spine, he could not move his back legs, one of which had to be removed. Even now, he cannot empty his bladder normally. The volunteer vet who worked on him has so kindly given him a home and helps him perform. Absolutely amazing.

This is Tarzan. When found, the vets estimated he was only two months old. He had suffered shocking damage to one of his paws and in extreme pain and trauma. Unknown whether this was a result of a car accident or a severe bite by another animal. After very involved surgery, it took weeks for him to recover. He is now being looked after in a lovely home in Portugal.

A heartfelt requestPT - Ainda falta pagar 728€ do total conta da Cuca (1300€). Conseguimos apenas 572€ na última angariação.
A Cuca entrou na Bianca aparentemente saudável. Contudo após pouco tempo ficou "constipada" e foi difícil de curar. Depois desenvolveu otites. Foram feitas várias análises para apurar a bactéria, e de cada exame era uma bactéria diferente.
Foi internada e fez uma rinoscopia e um TAC. Teve de ser operada aos ouvidos, a cera era espessa como borracha!!!!
Após a cirurgia teve uma paragem cardíaca e teve de ser entubada.
Salvou-se!
Precisamos da ajuda de todos para saldar o resto da dívida.
Pedimos por isso a vossa ajuda, nem que seja 1€ e que divulguem muito esta angariação.
Muito obrigada!

ENG - We still have to pay € 728 of the amount of the Cuca account (€ 1300). We got only €572 on the last fundraising.
Cuca arrived in Bianca SHELTER apparently healthy. However after a short time it became "constipated" and it was difficult to cure. Then he developed ear infections. Several analyzes were carried out to determine the bacterium, and each examination was a different bacterium.
She was hospitalized and had a rhinoscopy and a CT scan. Had to be operated on the ears, the wax was thick as rubber !!!!
After the surgery, she had a cardiac arrest and had to be intubated.
