Our Christmas Wish… help us save Coco
Coco was born in a city in the South of Turkey.
A Labrador mix that was never given the chance to experience the warmth and love of a human home. Instead, she did her best to survive on the streets, eating whatever food was given to her. Moving from one dump to another until she finally found a corner where she would be left in peace, a corner in a rubbish dump she could call her own.
That´s where we found her. Sitting in the crumbling remains of an old couch, barely able to move due to the severe malformation in her legs.
We were moved beyond words. There was an ill, handicapped and rejected girl that was still able to wag her tail and ask for cuddles.
There was no time to wait, she needed to be rescued. We flew and got her out of that hell she was living.
Coco has been treated for the many small conditions of a lifetime on the streets, a parasitic infestation, eye and skin infections, Erlichiosis. She went through it and recovered greatly. She finally discovered food, and oh boy, she loves that!
But now we must deal with the biggest problem of all… her legs.
Both of Coco´s legs present deformities due to a life of malnutrition on the streets. Her bones are twisted and force her to walk in a position that impacts her wrist and causes her enormous pain. She barely gets around and needs help to stand on firm ground. She´s only comfortable when she is standing on grass. It hurts less.
Coco is our Christmas rescue this year.
These are days of reflection and time spent with our families and friends. Days of remembrance of those that left us. Days where let the spirit of Christmas take over and change the world, one family, one animal at a time.
Today we would like to give Coco the biggest Christmas gift of them all. A new set of legs and a new life. There are very few communities in the world that would dare taking a case as complicated as this one. Dogs like Coco usually never get a chance and die frozen and forgotten.
Please Donate so that Coco can have her life-changing surgery… it´s now or never.
Please help us tell the world about Coco´s Christmas rescue by SHARING her story on your social networks. Many thanks!!
