Please listen to her… this is the sound of death.
A slow and cruel death by asphyxia.
Her name is “GOA” and this brutal suffering, desperately gasping for air is her life. The act of breathing is an irrepressible reflex, we do it without thinking, with ease, and it´s essential for survival.
But for Goa, a beautiful and noble german shepherd, abandoned and rescued in Minorca, one of the Spanish islands, every single breath is torture. What should be an easy reflex, for her has become a painful and laboured conscious act. Goa´s larynx is completely collapsed. In order to be able to inhale some air, Goa must make a tremendous effort as her airways are shot.
GOA WONT SURVIVE FOR MUCH LONGER. WITHOUT SURGERY SHE IS CONDEMNED TO DIE PAINFULLY BY ASPHYXIATION.
GOA´s rescue and surgery will be an extremely complicated one. Due to her advanced condition she won´t be able to travel the 14 hour journey by sea and road necessary to reach us. Flying in her condition is completely out of the question.
With every laboured breath, her heart struggles and she becomes weaker.
We´ll have to get to her with our surgeon and operate her locally… it´s that or she will die.
THIS IS AN EMERGENCY RESCUE… A RACE AGAINST TIME…
After Goa´s surgery and recovery she will be ready to be adopted. Goa needs a beautiful family that loves her and will protect her for the rest of her life… if you are that family, please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org . Please include pictures of you and your animals.
