A week ago, the world met Oscar, a dog whose condition was unlike anything we had ever seen. His face spoke of neglect and abandonment and it shocked us all. How could have Oscar survived so long on his own?
Oscar wasn´t alone on that site. His mother laid right beside him, exhausted, emaciated, close to death. During their long ordeal, they had been giving each other strength to survive.
It was a difficult, tense moment. A sudden movement could have triggered panic and they would have escaped. But the mother did something beautiful… Patiently, she remained still and calm while we won the trust of her son. Used to unspeakable abuse she must have been terrified at the strangers, but deep inside, but she must have felt that somehow, that rescuer was her son´s only chance.
And so, she didn´t move an inch while we gained the trust of her son. Only when Oscar was in safe hands, she jumped out and ran away. She had sacrificed her life to save her baby.
While we drove to the hospital we promised to her, and to ourselves, that we would not leave her behind… we promised her that we would save her beautiful son and we would return to find her.
What you are about to see is the fulfilment of a beautiful promise….
PLEASE WATCH, THE RESCUE OF HELEN, OSCAR´S MUM…
Helen is now in Intensive care. Her condition is as bad, if not worst, as her son´s. Helen is completely emaciated and dehydrated, barely alive.
Her blood poisoned by Leishmania, Ehrlichia and anaplasma, as her son was. Her kidneys are barely functioning. On her own, she would have never recovered. After fleeing the scene, she had gone to a corner to die.
We are going to do everything within our power to save her but for this, we need you. After we stabilise her Helen will meet her son again. We know this will help them both.
We can do this. Please Help us Save this beautiful mother. HELP US SAVE HELEN. Please DONATE towards Helen´s treatment and care…
After his treatment is over Helen is going to need an amazing home where she can have the dream life, the life she was born to live. Please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you believe you are that family.
