THIS IS ROCKETT… HELP US SAVE HIM!
What follows is heartbreaking but it´s necessary. It´s animal rescue. Please help us transform Rockett into a symbol of Hope for every other animal out there, laying paralyzed, waiting for help… Please read, help if you can, and at the end, SHARE this post on Facebook. On March 9, the Guardians of the Voiceless received an urgent call, a little pup laid on the floor in a dirty street. They rushed to his help and what they found made them weep… There he was, Rockett, thrown on the floor like a broken doll, trying to protect himself against the curb. He had been separated from his mother, he been abused and bitten by other dogs. He was crying and like a little boy would do, he was asking for help. The Guardians took him out of harm´s way and brought him to their home. The following day Rockett was taken to a vet that with just a look immediately suggested euthanasia. Heartbroken they went to another vet for a second opinion. Same verdict… Paralyzed, unable to control his bladder, Rockett should be euthanized. But the kids would have none of it.. and instead of killing him they took him home and regardless of his condition and handicap they showered him with love… Surrounded by such pure and kind souls Rockett blossomed. The crying pup regained confidence and poise and decided that, no matter what.. he would live. But without proper veterinary care and without any prospects of adoption Rockett was facing a very uncertain future. Everything changed the moment we offered our help. Excited by the possibility of Rockett being saved the Guardians asked us to please help them and save Rockett together with Tara to be treated and rehomed. We said yes right away. Tara and Rockett would be saved. Rockett and Tara travelled to Delhi and they would have flown to Europe together hadn´t he encountered problems at the airport in Delhi last week. Please Watch this video… It´s time to bring Rockett home… it´s time for Rockett to have proper veterinary care and it´s time for Rockett to be adopted by a loving family that loves him, understands him and protects him.. for life. — Update 15 June Rockett is now in Spain… after a 16 hour trip he finally made it. From the airport he went straight to our clinic to meet Tara again and to make new friends with our other rescues currently on treatment. — 16 of June Rockett is feeling more and more at ease with us… what an incredible little dog… He is amazing. The nurses jokingly said they wanted to change his name and call him FLECHA, which means ARROW.. that´s how fast he goes around… We have done a complete radiological study and here is the main lateral image of his back. We can see there is something there but we don´t know exactly what it is. The curvature of the spine is clearly atypical but we are not entire sure there is a fracture there. What is clear however is that Rockett has been paralyzed since he was a tiny puppy. We will be looking at this in coming days but we are starting to think at ways to help manage his incontinence and improve his mobility… Rockett is going to need an extraordinary home… Please write to me on email@example.com telling me all about your family and your animals. HELP US Turn Rockett into a symbol of hope for all those handicapped animals that somewhere out there may be in similar conditions to Rockett. Rockett is here and we are going to do our absolute best for him…
