We need to be really bothered once in a while. How long is it since you were really bothered? About something important, about something real?
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
When we first saw Rexy we were really bothered.
Rexy exists in a small provincial village in Bulgaria and has spent his entire short life in a chicken coop. Just 2 years old, Rexy never leaves his 2 x 2 meter solitary confinement, cleaned only by rain, he dines on bread, and his water dish is empty and caked with dirt. A gentle human touch, a kind word, love and warmth are things he has never encountered.
No, Rexy is not a shelter dog. This life is what his owners believe he deserves.
Since we first laid eyes on Rexy we knew we would not rest until we could get him out of the hell he was living in.
WARNING! The following video will break your heart.
Tomorrow we are visiting — and leaving with Rexy.
After careful preparations and negotiations with his so-called owners we are finally ready to extract Rexy. Please help us pull this innocent furry soul, provide for a full vet checkup, get him vaccinated, microchipped and placed safely in a boarding facility.
UPDATE | October 13, 2016
Rexy has been rescued! After resting for a bit in his rescuer’s home, he visited our buy zithromax clinic and was thoroughly checked by a vet team, vaccinated, neutered and placed in boarding.
We were inundated with requests from kind people, wishing to adopt Rexy, and thank every one of them for reaching out. We are incredibly happy to announce that we have selected an amazing family in the USA, and Rexy has been adopted! Now he needs to get home.
