MEET THE NEW ORPHANS AT THE
UPDATE ON AZUL JANUARY 8TH, 2010
THIS IS AZUL TODAY...FREE OF MANGE AND LIVING THE GOOD LIFE
EAGLE'S NEST CAT SECTION
All of our cats are kept in a special compound. It's kept very clean and it allows the dogs to make friends with their fellow four-leggers. They have a very well insulated house to stay in when the weather isn't to their liking. The compound was built recently, so there isn't any grass or plants. The photos were taken on a very rainy day; most of the cats are in the shelter.
The above two photos are of the kittens that were left to die in a garbage can. Coqui came to their rescue and they are now doing quite well. They are fed every four hours with a special milk formula.
COQUI AND APACHE...APACHE WITH SOME OF HIS NEW FRIENDS
This is Apache; he's 11 months old. This little boy was found wandering in the middle of a shanty town. The police think that he had been stolen and he was being trained to pull carts when apparently he ran away. He is fitting in quite well. He follows two of our other horses, Kamar and Rainbow everywhere. We're guessing that he thinks they are his parents. He's been learning lots of things and something very funny, when it's food time he walks around carrying his bowl in his teeth. He is quite thin and has probably been starved for most of his life. Soon we will have a photo of him with his bowl.
SOME OF OUR NEW DOGS...ALL OF THEM BEAUTIES
This is Aramis; a three month-old German Shepherd. He was abandoned next to a garbage container. We received a phone call saying that this baby was in a very busy part of the street so people were afraid he could be hit by a car or a bus. He's very easy going and he loves playing around with the other dogs. He was abandoned in a very good condition, we don't understand why someone would forsake this sweet and beautiful angel.
This is Lara. Coqui came across her downtown. We don't know how she got into one of the Senior High schools where Coqui teaches, but as soon as she saw Coqui she came right up to her and made friends. Fortunately everybody knows about Coqui's unconditional love for animals, so the school authorities allowed her to have Lara in the classroom during the English lesson. She behaved very well, and of course Coqui had trouble teaching the lesson, as her students were eager to play with Lara rather than listening to a boring English Literature lecture. Lara's family is not looking for her. We have placed ads in the local newspaper, and have sent her photo around via the Internet, but her family has vanished. Anyway, we are not putting her up for adoption because this breed of dog, Pitbull, is used for all sorts of things; e.g. guard dog, breeding dog, but we feel that she deserves a better life, so until a suitable and sweet family shows up we will have her with us at the sanctuary. Besides, she loves human company and she loves playing with her peers. She's a very happy dog.
SPECIAL SHELTERS FOR OUR OLDER DOGS
Some of our dogs are in their senior years. The above enclosures are for them when no one is around for supervision. Some of the younger dogs can be a bit rough when they are in playful moods.
