On a cold morning, a report came in about a dog abandoned on the outskirts of Loja. This area is notorious for the dumping of elderly dogs and pregnant animals. The report stated that the dog was in terrible condition, which prompted our team of volunteers to act quickly. With the freezing weather, it was crucial to find the dog as soon as possible to avoid further harm.
After searching for 30 minutes in the bitter cold, our team of volunteers and activists finally found the dog. It was a devastating sight to witness how people carelessly discard animals, leaving them in such dire conditions. These innocent animals are left without food, water, or warmth, suffering at the hands of their former owners.
The dog was found in a pitiful state, shivering in the cold with a sad and defeated expression. Our team cautiously approached the dog to gain its trust, uncertain of how it would react or if it had any injuries. Once the dog was more at ease, we gently transported it to a nearby veterinary clinic for assessment and care.
Upon examination, the veterinarian discovered that the dog, named Job, was severely malnourished and elderly, making him more susceptible to various health issues. A thorough evaluation was conducted to check Job’s vital signs, including his heart rate, temperature, and blood pressure.
Job’s long road to recovery has just begun. As an older dog, he faces several challenges, including potential illnesses and a weakened immune system. His malnourishment further complicates his situation, but our team is dedicated to providing him with the care and love he deserves.
During Job’s time at the foundation, we will do everything in our power to improve his quality of life and help him regain his health. We hope that Job’s recovery will be smooth and without any unpleasant surprises along the way.
This heartbreaking rescue serves as a reminder of the importance of animal welfare awareness. Recently, an ordinance for animal protection was approved in our region, which is a significant step towards ensuring the rights of animals are respected.
Our team will contribute to raising awareness about this ordinance and encourage the public to familiarize themselves with it. By promoting consciousness about animal rights and the consequences of neglect and abandonment, we hope to reduce the number of cases like Job’s and make a positive impact on the lives of animals in our community.
