It´s Thursday morning. Tomorrow is Easter, many people are going on holiday. I receive a call from our friends at the local police asking for help with a dog they have just found out laying by the side of the road.
The police officer arrives with the dog in his arms. The poor baby is clearly exhausted, he has injuries and lesions all over his body.
We call him Raymond… he is in a state of shock. We immediately perform X-rays, he has several broken ribs. The fractures are recent and are affecting his breathing.
The police officer sighs and ask me to take good care of him. I promise him we will…
His blood test is terrible… he is completely dehydrated and anaemic. His blood is infected by three parasitic diseases, Leishmaniasis, Ehrlichiosis and Anaplasmosis. A Lethal combination that, if left untreated, will kill him.
We know Easter is a very special and intimate time for many of our friends… and that´s the reason why, at a time like this, I would ask you to please look at Raymond´s eyes, imagine what he has gone through…
After Raymond´s treatment he will be ready to be adopted. Raymond needs a beautiful family that loves him and will protect him for the rest of his life… if you are that family, please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org . Please include pictures of you and your animals.
