Coming from a cheese factory, Nino was leaving for the slaughterhouse...
Patou is an 8 year old dog, who was shot when he was living in the streets of Reunion Island. The bullet hit his spine and his spinal cord! Since then, he has great difficulty in moving around, in spite of treatments... He is trying to get back on his feet, but he still drags his back a lot.
Patou had a huge infection in his teeth, probably because of what he was eating in the street. So we had to do a total tooth removal. Now he can't chew anymore!
To continue learning to walk with his disability, Patou will need a rich source of nutrition. Vitamin-enriched canned food vitamin-enriched would be a good way for him to replenish his energy, without the need to chew.
We are going to have to slow down on new rescues, as we are already caring for nearly 120 dogs, most of them elderly and sick.
With the veterinary expenses piling up, it is becoming really complicated to do more... At the moment, we are at 50,000 euros of care bills per year!
