On 28th November , Senator Christine Teunissen from Party for the Animals kindly hosted us…
A tiny terrier, wounded and quivering terribly was found stranded at a roadside by drivers…
I always had cats, usually from our local shelter. When I started following He’Art of Rescue on facebook I had 3 – Rocky, Susi and Pirelli. He’Art of Rescue told the story of Blondie, hit by a car and left paralyzed. He’Art of Rescue contacted me by phone to tell me that I would most probably be the perfect choice for Blondie. I would have to wait for her to improve and to find a possibility to fly her to Germany.
Unfortunately Blondie had to undergo another surgery before she could travel to me. She lost one leg, because she had been left untreated for too long. But she is the happiest kitty.
Because she is young and all my other cats are 10 years old I decided it would be good for her to get a young and playful companion. When Baby Rose was up for adoption it was an easy decision. Upon arrival it turned out that Rose is a boy! Now his name is Romeo, and Blondie and Romeo are the best buddies. They are the most affectionate and loving cats and they bring lots of joy to my life!
After hearing about them from a friend I contacted He’art of Resuce since I wanted to adopt another rescue to live with my two male dogs. Wendy is a Doberman abandoned in Turkey after being kept as mother in a puppy mill because she had a large tumor on her face. He’art of Rescue took her in and paid her veterinary fees. As soon as she was free of cancer she became adoptable. Rima delivered Wendy herself by airplane from Istanbul to Stockholm, and she immediately got on well with the two males, starting to raise her leg to urinate after a couple of days. She is a very good natured dog, and naturally obedient, though her time in the puppy mill meant that she had no idea what to do when I threw a ball for them to catch. She picked that up pretty fast though. After eating supplements and fresh food she looks healthy and happy. They say that rescues take time to adapt, but Wendy took a few days at most. It’s great to have a puppy that grows up with you, like the other two, but it’s also great to rescue an older dog, like Wendy. Rima and He’art of rescue do an awesome job for animals like Wendy, and are heavily reliant on donations, since there is no charge for the dogs or other animals, or for their delivery overseas.
It all started with a picture of a sad wee brown dog in a shelter… My heart broke to see him with his head held low. I knew I could give him an amazing like so I applied to adopt him..and waited! Weeks later I finally heard he was adopted in Canada. I have to say my heart broke but consoled myself with the knowledge Oscar had a home. When the adoption fell through I jumped at the chance to try again! When another appeared after a failed adoption showing a very depressed Cookie..the decision was made to take her on. Oscar and Cookie arrived! I have fallen totally head over heels in love with them..they are the sweetest dogs alive. They just met my niece who is only three..who also fell in love with Cookie..who she says… is her dog! I thank God everyday that when I saw their pictures I didn’t pass it over. Thank you for making it all happen!
