HANNIBAL!!! a little terrier run over by a car with internal bleeding
This is what I received a couple of nights ago. In the picture I could see a white terrier, obviously in a lot of pain, bleeding…
The poster, an organization in Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands was desperately asking for funds. Apparently. no vet in the island wanted to take the case without previous payment in full and in their desperation they were asking for funds to euthanize him right away to spare him suffering.
It was heartbreaking.. noone had really done any proper checks, noone understood the extent of the injuries and the dog was going to die without ever having the chance to be treated.
We couldn’t let this happen!. A few calls later and the best clinic in the island was ready to receive their new little guest under the responsibility of Let’s Adopt!. They asked us if he had a name.. We named him HANNIBAL!!!!…
Hannibal has internal injuries that we are trying to control and we are conducting a battery of tests in order to ascertain the gravity of the situation. He’s currently at the clinic being administered strong painkillers, IV theraphy and antibiotics to reduce infection.
Hannibal’s life is on the line… this is also our first rescue in the Canary Islands and we don’t have any assistance on the ground. To the obvious gravity of the situation we must add the logistical issues.. at this stage we really don’t know how things are going to evolve.
This is a LIVE RESCUE and at this stage everything is pretty much an unknown… All our rescues are community efforts, and it’s us, together, that will make possible the rescue of this little guy that finds himself in such a complicated situation.
Please, give us a hand, and if you can, contribute and help us SAVE HANNIBAL’s LIFE today..
P.S. As usual we will update on Hannibal’s condition through our page: Let’s Adopt! Global.
After Hannibal is treated and saved he’s going to need a home. Please, if you would like to adopt this little fighter, please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org
UPDATE March 4
Hannibal is doing great!! Within a week from our post one of our volunteers traveled to Fuertaventura to pick up Hannibal and transport him safely to Madrid to continue his treatment and recovery and live in a wonderful and loving foster home…
