Here are some dogs that dont have much
capability to be rehomed, so you could sponsor one of them, if
you like. They have all been neutered, vaccinated and given
medical care. They are currently kept in volunteers' houses.
is a 7 years old male dog. He is small (3-4 kgr) and he
has a very good character. He is getting along very well
with cats. He is epileptic and he must take his pills
twice a day to avoid epileptic crises.
is a 2 years old male Gronendael Shepherd. He was very
sick when he was found, but now he is very well although
he will need a special treatment for all of his life. He
has a very nice temperament and he is doing perfect with
is a 2 years old cat. She was found by an old lady as a
kitten, in a hole full of rain water, hit badly by a car.
She came to us after 2 months in a really bad condition,
paralyzed and with many infections. Vets said we should
put her down but she is such an incredible, full of energy
creature we decided not to. She is now staying with a
young couple of volunteers. She needs special food and
occasionally medicine and she needs help to go to the
3 years old cat. When she was a kitten she got poisoned,
then thrown in a dustbin. Somebody heard her crying and
got her out, but she already had a broken spine. Her
back legs are paralyzed. She is staying with a volunteer
and she also needs help to go to the toilet, special
food and occasionally medical traetment.
A tan male Husky mix, approx. 1 year old. He was found
as a puppy suffering from an advanced stage of a disease
of the nervous system called Carre. It was quite a fight
to save his life. He has recovered as much as possible
but his back legs are not fully functional due to damage
caused by this disease. His chance of finding a loving
home are very slim due to this illness so we will take
care of him.
A black & tan spayed female Doberman, about 3 yrs old.
Dobby's back left leg was broken and had already healed
before we found her so we could not repair it properly.
She doesn't use it and seems to have managed quite well
on the streets just the same. She then had a second
accident to her right front leg and that's when she came
to us. We treated this injury and this leg is fine now.
A tan with black & white female Shepherd/Boxer mix,
approx. 7 months old. She was found at 3 months of age
after being hit by a car. Her leg was injured so badly
that you could see the bones. The vet said that she
would probably need to have her leg amputated because it
was so badly damaged but we managed to save it. She
doesn't have full use of it but she is very active and
likes to run all the time!
Michalis: A black & white Pointer, about 7 yrs old.
We found Michalis with a broken pelvis, paralysed and
left in the forest to die. Probably abandoned because he
wasn't 'useful' anymore. Michalis is a pure breed
Pointer, very clever and he understands commands.
Unfortunately he can hardly use his back legs. There are
those who say we should humanely euthanize him but we
feel he deserves some kindness from the human race after
having faced so much cruelty from the humans he served
for years....it would not surprise us if his injuries
were deliberately inflicted on him because he wasn't
'performing' his job to their liking. We will love and
care for him for as long as he has the will to live.
A black & tan Shepherd (likely a purebred) about 2 yrs
old. We found him at the age of 1 1/2 months with a
broken back and paralysed. People nearby told us cars
were running over him.... but he obviously had a very
strong will to live! A volunteer kept him at her house
and after 2 months of special treatment, he began to use
his legs. His back legs are still unstable (especially
the right one) and will never return to normal.

Asproulis has now a new loving
He was found next to a
highway with two broken legs (front left and back left),
having been hit by a car. Both legs were operated on but
his back leg was damaged so badly that could not recover
and had to be amputated. After 2 years with us and 1 year
with a foster family, Asproulis finally found his forever
home in Eastern Ontario. Many thanks to Dianne and all the
others that helped with Asproulis expenses and adoption!

Dambo with his new family!
Dambo was found as a puppy
with a terribly broken back leg. He had an operation while
he was still with us but never recovered comletely. He had
another operation in UK to amputate his leg. He is now
really happy and enjoys his new family of dogs and humans
in UK. Many thanks to Vesna for covering the expenses and
finding the perfect home for him!
Griffy's story had a happy
found with his back legs paralysed from a broken pelvis.
The vet was not very optimistic about Griffy being able
to walk again but we had to give him a chance so had him
operated on. After the operation he could walk but he
could not run as his back legs were not very stable. With
a long treatment by his new family, Griffy can now run up
and down the stairs in his new home! Many thanks to
Simonne for sponsoring all his expenses and finding him a
