Zlato is a German Shepherd who faithfully lay beside the body of her owner. The man who was homeless had died on the streets with nothing other than his dog.
Why did Actin take Zlato when we are not a rescue? This is why, because our constant and sometimes thankless work involves trying to educate owners to do the right things by their dogs. One example of a a man who has a home, a car a job, a respectable man who has the money and the ability to take care of his dogs!!!...But no, he is a hunter and his dogs no longer served him, so he put them in a dump and left them to starve. Did we rescue them, yes of course and now Kiko and Boris are safely in their homes in the UK.
So, isn't it shameful that we constantly hear the excuse that poverty is the reason why people don't look after their dogs...well we know that is total rubbish - poverty is not an excuse for cruelty and neglect of a pet!! When a street man ensured that his dog was vaccinated and had her rabies jab and she wore a flea collar and a collar with an ID tag on, we know its possible that all people can take care of their animals.
So that is why Actin took her, in honor of someone poor, who put his dog before himself. How could we let her go to the pound?
Zlato is 10 months old, friendly, well behaved and healthy If you would like to sponsor, foster or adopt Zlato, please contact us. Or please donate for her boarding and her care, thank you
Kiko and Boris another sad story of a an owner who could afford to keep his dogs but deliberately chose to starve them!!!!
