Information from pound pullers:
Last weekend we had reports of a dog, that was abandoned and straying, acting in a nervous and scared manner. Local folk were unable to catch and contain her. The owner of a local store finally managed to do this by shutting her in one of his stables and with the help of the dog warden she was poled into the van and taken to the pound.
Described by everyone as “totally feral” – when in reality she was merely scared, from being so young (we estimate 12-18mths max) abandoned and finding herself in a strange area where she had been forced to forage for food to survive, whilst multiple well meaning people tried to chase and catch her.
ROLL ON 5 DAYS…and a bit of time spent daily by Laura at the pound charming this petrified young girly and she is a different dog! Happy to be handled, walked out, give paw and be fussed. The first pic is of Sasha in the pound on day one, the following pics and video taken yesterday.
The future is bright for this fabulous girl!
Now safe in foster.
*on average, it costs £150-£200 to pay the rescue costs (neutering, vaccination, chipping, worming, flea treatment) for every dog rescued from the pound, and more if they need to be transported and moved into EB before they find a rescue space. Please note that funds alone do not guarantee a dog’s safety, as there are many other factors to take into account such as availability of emergency boarding, rescue kennels, transport and rescue space. They do, however, provide a huge help to the dogs and their helpers in paying for their vital and expensive rescue costs.
