We had a sad and shocking arrival at the refuge today; Nestor, an Ariegeois cross who was found with a collar so tight that it had become embedded in his neck, leaving a festering wound. Now why on earth did his owner do this to him? These dogs are invariably gentle, and Nestor has such sad eyes. Hardly surprising bearing in mind what he has been through. We would love to find out who owned this dog and find out what on earth possessed them to treat a dog in this way, but of course they are unlikely to come forward to face our wrath. So Nestor will be needing a new home.
All you lovers of scent hounds stand by. This boy could cut quite a dash in the UK, methinks!
The second arrival of the day is another boy, this time a shepherd cross, who, we are assured, is good with other dogs, children and rabbits! He has been named Aȉko and he looks beautiful.
Two other dogs arrived but were reclaimed, thanks to being identified.
I know that this is Dog Rescue Carcassonne, but just sometimes there is enough reason to veer into the world of our feline friends. Now is such a time. A further six cats arrived at the SPA today. And we are not talking kittens here, although we have over 50 of them as well. Today’s arrival were all adults, found at the refuge gates this morning. We don’t know if they were once cute kittens who have now been replaced by a younger (and free) kitten, let’s face it they are being given away on websites all over the place. This of course is illegal, unless the animals are identified. The situation at the SPA is desperate and we see no way out unless people sterilise their animals. And the benefits of even that will not help this year’s “crop”.
Any cat lovers out there, please think of the SPA cats and kittens and bear in mind that for 120 euros you can have a cat who has been sterilised, micro-chipped, as well as tested for leucosis and FIV. And a kitten is just 70 euros! Far less than paying for all of that if you get it done at your own vet.
So come on, all you cat lovers! Now is the time to adopt a moggy!
Look what my owner did to me 🙁
Aiko – new arrival
I am Betty and I am one of the many kittens at the SPA
And I am Mimi; I am ten years old and I would like a home too!
