The rescue of dog 66

UPDATE 26 May:

The wonderful German couple of tourist took a 7 hour drive to the Barstow Humane Society that confirmed that the dog was picked up by his owner. We don’t know how this dog ended in the middle of the desert, probably we will never know… anyway… the dog is safe now. Case closed.

I have just received the following email. It’s clearly an emergency…

I don’t know, if you can help us, but here is our story:
On Tuesday we travelled the Route 66 from Newberry Springs to Barstow. We passed a tree, under that tree was an abandoned dog waiting for it’s death. we called 911, what else could we have done?
We waited by this cute dog for more than 3 hours. he gets all our water and it seemed, that the doggy is injured, she was not able to move. after more than 3 hours the animal rescue arrived and picked her up, bringing her to Barstow Humane Society. and the woman told us, that the dog will be killed if no one picks her up in 3 days (Friday).
We’d like to ask what we could to for the dog, it would be strange feeling for us to have rescued her from dying of thirst, and then she was brought to a killing shelter, dying there from gas. could you do anything for her? she was really friendly, old and if we could, we’d take her with us to germany (we’re here on vacation), but thats unfortunately impossible. =((

Please, can someone help her?!

Ok, we need someone to go or call to the Barstow Humane Society and take full responsibility for this dogie. Once she is safe and sound we will do our best to find her a home that fits our standards. But for now she needs an emergency rescue…

Help out please…

Help Lilly, shot and left paralyzed

Lilly was found in Bulgaria, with two bullets lodged in her little body.
One of them was in her stomach, that was the easy one to deal with. The second one was lodged in her spinal cord…
Lilly’s two back legs are paralyzed. For life. There is no turning back from the damaged caused by man.
The only thing this community can do at this stage is to offer her the best possible life imaginable, and that’s exactly what I’m requesting from you today.

We need to find a home for Lilly… noone in this world deserves a second chance more than this little yellow Bulgarian dog whose pleading eyes remind us all of the shortcomings of our kind.
We, as a race, are capable or unimaginable atrocities, we, as a race, are capable of incredible achievements led by altruistic compassion.
However, the biggest damage the average person will cause will be to look away and DO NOTHING.
Let’s offer Lilly the gift of a second chance… together.
Today I ask you to help this little girl… either adopt her or actively help us look for a great home for her, wherever that home may be.
Contact me: viktor@myletsadopt.com
Conditions for adoption:

1. Family MUST have an existing animal.
2. Lilly MUST live inside the home, not on the garden.
3. Lilly MUST be fed a RAW diet (www.rawfed.com)

and finally…

4. The family will be a non-smoking family. Second hand smoke kills and makes miserable the lifes of both humans and animals. Lilly has already gone through too much in her short life at least now she will enjoy a clean crisp air in her new home.

PETA, with blood in their hands

The teacher, Robert Sperlik Jr., pleaded guilty to sexual abuse and kidnapping of more than 20 girls, some as young as 9. Among other things, he told prosecutors that he put rags in the girls’ mouths, taped them shut and also bound their hands and feet with duct tape and rope for his own sexual stimulation. According to court documents, he rubbed their inner thighs and shoulders and forced them to sit, while bound, in closets and school storage rooms. At least one girl told prosecutors that when Sperlik stood behind her, she could feel his erect penis on her back.

He pretended it was a game, gave the girls candy and told them not to tell.

And for a long time, none of them did.

Robert Sperlik Jr. educated thousands of children during this school teacher career, in many ways he was a pillar of the community, he commanded respect and his views were granted the credibility granted to professionals.

And this takes me to P.E.T.A (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).

In the eyes of many animal lovers PETA is the champion of the animals. They do some good work advocating animal rights and fhe plea of farm animals… they expose circuses… their advertisements are very visible and bring awareness… They cook a mean vegan French Toast Casserole!

Let me be clear. It’s not that they don’t do some good things, it’s that some of the things they do are so bad, so terribly and absolutely wrong that they negate everything else they stand for.

Now ask yourself this question: would you have allowed Robert Sperlik Jr. to continue his teaching career? He did some good after all…

Much in the way the disgraced teacher ended with his bones in jail and will never be able to be in contact with children again, animal rights activists must stand up to the hypocrisy of PETA and reject them outright. By portraying themselves as champions of the animals PETA must be held to a higher standard. Instead they have fooled millions of animals lovers that are simply unaware of what they really do.

You have seen all their campaigns against meat, against lab testing, etc… have you ever seen a campaign FOR the killing of healthy animals? because that’s what PETA does in their Norfolk HQ’s.

You shouldn’t hate us exposing PETA, you should be thankful that we are taking a principled stance. Instead of defending a pedophile teacher we would have made sure he never again touched an innocent child.

Now please follow the links in this article and carefully think about it…

Baby Asli

It’s always difficult to loose them, but much more so when tragedy occurs at such early age.
Yesterday night we lived through one of the most heartbreaking moments of the last four years.
From a day to another Baby Asli developed an acute respiratory infection. One day she was jumping and playing as usual, the next day she was agonizing.
Her lungs were completely full of fluid, I have never seen anything like this.
We did our best to clear her lungs and give her at least a little bit of margin for breathing. It was all in vain.
She died in my arms barely minutes after I shot this video.
I will never forget her.

Help us create some sense after this senseless death… please write to me on viktor@myletsadopt.com and offer to foster one of our cats in Istanbul.

Sam, a story of love

Some stories are better told without words…
Sam’s rescue is one of them….
Enjoy…

Sam is looking for a home according to our usual conditions for adoption:
1. Family MUST have an existing animal.
2. Sam MUST live inside the home, not on the garden. Garden is a plus, of course.
3. Sam MUST be fed a RAW diet (www.rawfed.com)
4. The family will be a non-smoking family. Second hand smoke kills and makes miserable the lifes of both humans and animals. Our rescues will enjoy a clean crisp air in their new home.

Animal rescue: PussyVille

This is an urgent message to our members in Istanbul but it very well applies to our entire international community.
As you may remember, last week 12 cats and kitties were abandoned in our clinic by an “animal lover’.
Over the following days we found foster homes for 5 but we have 7 left.
Two of them are blind, one has three legs.
We have to move them onto foster homes TODAY.
Now… let me be painfully honest here. Many of you consider yourselves “animal lovers”, you proudly identify yourselves as such, you tell your friends you like animals, share puppy and kitty videos on your FB pages, and melt, literally melt with expressions like “offff…. caniiiim and yaaaaa” every time you see a pic of a kitty or a puppy. Some of you go as far as calling yourselves “animal rescuers”.
But… are you?
Facebook has created a new social group, the “imaginary rescuer”, and nowhere is this more evident that amongst our Turkish community.
Every morning, without fail, tens of thousands of people in Turkey visit our Facebook Page and others. They usually browse around the latest post, click on a couple of likes and leave a few “offs.. yaaaas and similar expressions here and there”.. and then, after having charged their “animal rescue energy” they look away and move onto something else, onto another silly game, another video or equally stupid application.
Facebook and social media are an incredible  tool to achieve things beyond the reach of a single person, but, used in the wrong way, it’s also the biggest waste of time, giving people the feeling of “having done something” when in reality nothing has been done.
Animal rescue is not a Facebook Game. This is no PussyVille.
Animal rescue is a sacred mission that requires much more than a few clicks.
Animal rescue requires you to step out of your comfort zone, into the real world, to accept responsibility for a living being that is not yours, in exchange for nothing. Nothing other than the satisfaction of knowing you are contributing to ensure its future.
It’s either that, or do nothing, and continue clicking away your life thinking you are actually achieving anything.
If you are in Istanbul today, we need you to step out of your comfort zone, and to truly become an animal rescuer. Today is your chance to finally earn your wings as a live savior.
We have a number of kittens and cats that need fostering. I need you to contact me, offer to become a foster home, helps us save their lives.

Tequila, angels and demons

Let me remind you of our pledge:

To create a worldwide network of people that will take combined action in defense of those that truly have no chance.

Animals like Tequila.

Our members in Jakarta received a call.
A small terrier was in desperate need of help.
There was something wrong with his nose, as you know a dog’s most sensitive organ. He must have been in excruciating pain.
We made a video describing the story of Tequila’s rescue. The pictures and the music tell a story of bravery, endurance and love, but they also tell a story of lost chances and abandonment.

We don’t know how the injuries happen, but Tequila was probably bitten by a much larger dog, right on the nose. The attack tore it away, leaving it hanging at the tip…

Tequila is now an animal considered “unadoptable” by the vast majority of animal rescue organizations. Who would want to have a dog without a nose and left with what a grotesque grin that makes him look like an evil creature.
Where he is, Tequila has no chance of ever finding a home. In a deeply superstitious society Tequila is viewed as a curse, some sort of demonic being, whilst in reality he is the sweetest, most loving and playful dog you could ever imagine.
This is one of those occasions when we need the combined actions of our entire community. We need to find a home for Tequila.

Please adopt this incredible dog, if you cannot do so, for whatever reasons, please help him by SHARING this post in your profile, or directly approach a friend of yours that may want to be interested to help.
Let’s make Tequila a priority in the hearts of tens of thousands of people. He needs us.

Conditions for adoption:

1. Family MUST have an existing animal.
2. Tequila MUST live inside the home, not on the garden.
3. Tequila MUST be fed a RAW diet (www.rawfed.com)

and finally…

4. The family will be a non-smoking family. Second hand smoke kills and makes miserable the lifes of both humans and animals. Tequila has already gone through too much in his short life at least now he will enjoy a clean crisp air in his new home.
