Puppy Storms!

Puppy Storms!
Hello Everyone! Happy April Showers; almost May Flowers

Lately, we’ve been caught in the middle of Puppy Storms!!! Just last week, we rescued Manchita, who was heavily pregnant. We finally had to bring her to a vet who performed a caesarean on Friday. We are now bottle-feeding her 10 puppies every two to three hours! Been doing this since the birth, so we are exhausted, but more on Manchita and her pups in the next post. Elder puppies come first:

12 Puppies got their Wings!!

This weekend, we just sent a rowdy bunch of 12!!! to St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center in New Jersey. These little guys loved to play around when they were let out of their run! They also loved to get bathed by volunteers. Click on their bathing for a YouTube video!

 

Pam: a Paw Recovery Story!

We just received Pinky and Pam April 13th (lucky day for us!); and are busy healing Pam’s bad paw. They are the cutest pair of furry black babes!

 

 

 

Blanca’s Babies

And we’ve got Blanca’s Puppies, who around 21-days old and the absolute cutest things! We can’t get enough photos of them! LOOOVVE!

 

And finally!!!! Being surrounded by puppies reminded us of the sand storm we experienced last month on the Shelter. On March 5th, strong currents, high wind and 30-feet high waves affected our little beach town. Homes flooded; businesses were partially destroyed, and cars were ruined. The next day, the police had to close the road leading into the Shelter in order to remove all the sand that had accumulated. The waves had decreased but the ocean remained unsafe with the waves reaching 15 to 20 feet.

Check out a video taken the day after the event!

In fact, we named one of Blanca’s puppies Sandy, after the storm! Help Sandy and her sisters and brothers stay healthy! Every penny we receive goes towards ADLA’s mission: to help end animal abuse and abandonment in Puerto Rico!

Prevention of Cruelty of Animals in April 2018

Prevention of Cruelty of Animals in April 2018

This is Titán. One of our volunteers found this lovable bull-nosed terrier wandering in the street by himself. But that is not the worst of it.

Titán has whiplashes up and down his back! WHHAAT!!!

How could any person do this??? But yet it is so prevalent that the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) dedicated the month of April to specifically right this: the Prevention of Cruelty against Animals.

Year-round, rescue organizations and dedicated individuals fight animal abuse and cruelty that can come in so many forms: punishments, neglect, hoarding, inhumane factory farming and death for sport or fashion. While it is people that are causing this pain, people can also make a difference.

Amigos de los Animales, along with Puerto Rico’s Health department and the Career Development Institute based in New Jersey, annually coordinates a week-long course to certify people as Animal Control Officer/Cruelty Investigators. So far, approximately 298 Officer/Investigators have been certified.

All animals deserve to live a life free of intentional infliction of pain caused by the whims, desires, or pleasures of humans. It is up to us to make this happen!

Email Amanda@amigosdelosanimales.org NOW if you are interested in taking the 2019 course (tentatively scheduled for end of Jan./beginning of February), and we will put you on the list to be sent a registration form. Our 2018 course was cancelled due to Hurricane Maria, but you can read the newsletter HERE. 

Titán is a victim of abuse. It is ironic to think that He is one of the lucky ones. He was at least picked up, and is being cared for and rehabilitated. He will always have his scars, however, as a reminder of the power of people.

DONATE NOW! Help us in our fight against Animal Abuse!
