    Story

    This is Prince, when he was just a young puppy a heartless monster chopped off his back paws and left him to die in a flooded field. Someone had purposefully amputated his two back legs leaving open wounds and left him to die in agony. I rescued him, had his wounds stitched & he recovered slowly.

    I wanted him to have a forever home with a loving family but I was told by the vet and the shelter that it would not be an easy task as most people want a perfect dog. Increasingly I was told to euthanise him as he could spend the rest of his life in a cage. Shelters in India are funded by the government, they are paid for each animal they shelter. So I took Prince home and set about trying to re-home him. We contacted the local news who wrote a heartfelt article and made an adoption video of Prince’s story, but there was little interest.

    Prince is now a year older & has recovered from his horrific start in life. He is loved and a part of our family. I am now having to return to England and could not imagine leaving Prince behind. If we leave him he will be caged for the rest of his life or put to sleep. For us to bring Prince home he will need blood tests, vaccination boosters, vet checks, a microchip, export & import duties and flights. The vet has explained it will cost in the region of £3000, which we cannot afford to do alone.

    Prince is also in need of a wheelchair, although he manages on his two front legs, he gets sores on his stumps which need constant care from infection. A wheelchair would mean he could run free and gain his independence back. Unfortunately, these are only available from abroad and are seen as luxury items so they are subject to 100% import duty. So again we are looking at a cost we cannot afford (£900). We don't plan on leaving Prince behind & will be staying in India as long as is possible while raising the funds.

    Any extra donations will be given to charities PAWS & the International Animal Shelters in Panjim & Arjuna.

      The BEST news today is Prince received his .....wheelchair!!!!! So a big thank you to everyone who donated towards his cause, we are so excited to see things moving forward! The wheelchair has been left next to him for him to get used to it, as you can see from his face he's not looking to impress with it! We are sure once he knows what its for and how to get about in it he will love it though. I am sure there will be lots of coaxing with treats too. xxx

      Last day of fund raising with Just Giving and things are moving forward for Prince. We have some exciting updates for you all. He has had his bloods taken and they are in transit to be tested in England, he has also had his vaccinations and chip fitted. So now is the waiting game waiting for the results and the all clear so his flights and carriage can be organised! Sadly this takes roughly three months and with the holidays in between we can only hope it does not drag out too long. But wait there is more.....
