Lassie was the first dog on Lets Adopt.
She was found together with her four surviving puppies at a Municipal shelter in January.
The entire family had been left to day. None of the employees of the shelters would move a finger to help those wonderful animals.
The creator of Lets Adopt rescued them all from their predicament, took them to Arti Veterinary Clinic in Levent and started to think of the ideal way to find families for those puppies and for Lassie herself once she had recovered from her ilness.
A few days Lets Adopt was created on Facebook. Initially the reaction was extremely slow and we were very worried that the group would never work. We persevered whilst Lassies health deteriorated at an alarming rate in front of our eyes.
Using our own personal networks we managed to rehome the pups within a weekend. Unfortunately it was too late for Lassie. We did all we could for her but she left us barely a few days later…
This is the last picture I took of Lassie shortly after her life or death operation took place.
She died in our arms… sleeping on a warm comfortable bed.
It was a very sad loss.. one that made us realize the enormity of the task at hand.
