Fabienne's Diary

Sorro survived at a gaz station

Sorro is a funny guy.... he has a sense of humor and wants to be happy. He can be so cheerful over something small. He was noticed at a gaz station where he was waiting for weeks and kept hoping that his owner would come back to pick him up.

Peggy, Thank you for your visit and your courage!

Our volunteer Peggy, ill since quite a while due to the dreadful cancer, came and visit our refugio with all her courage and support.... She gained strength and satisfaction our of her visit, to be part of our rescue projects... She went to all cages with all the love she had to give, gave cuddles to every dog that wanted a cuddle, straight from her heart! Peggy, even though you are so ill, you are an example to us, to persevere and not give up, just like what we stand for. We wish you all the best, from the bottom of our hearts we are hoping that the situation will change and that you can come back, with the same passion and persuasion, courage and strength, good luck and thank you!

Lilly was just laying on the corner of the street where her owner has left her behind...

Like a real sheperd, incredible loyal, Lilly couldn't understand why her owner was not coming back.. so she did not give up and kept waiting for him. A man from the village wanted to take her with him, to use a guardian dog, but Lilly kept going back to her corner on the street. Days and days she kept waiting... and waiting... and waiting. People from the neighbourhood kept looking at her with a sceptic look in their eyes. Some wanted to help and some wanted her gone. Lilly stopped eating, barely drank anymore and got more and more sad everyday. She kept her hope however and dit not give up, but is was not meant to be. Her owner has forgotten about her for a while now... but Lilly did not forget about him. To prevent her from being brought to a killing station, we took her in. She is a young sheperd that can be raised with somebody's own values... she is people oriented, but needs guidance... from someone who can give some discipline and understands what sheperds are like. She can become a great dog... Lilly likes to work, be active and stand besides her owner, like a real sheperd!

The tragedy of Junior

Around four years ago, Junior was left behind in a cardboard box, in front of a killing station... with fear in his eyes, together with his brothers and sisters, he looked at the man with the stonecold look on his face. The man who brought them in, into the horror of the killing station. 

Is it Boxer time......

Some periods it is Shepherds that are being dumped, other times Shar-Peis, then another breed….

Two mama’s and 12 puppies, dumped........

This morning I was mistaken with the time….I got up one hour too early and only realized this as I was driving to the refugio….No problem, there is always enough to do. I picked up Diane and we started to let the dogs out before we would leave….MatieJoppie, Daisy and Kibo. In the background I heard a dog barking but I thought…One from the neighbors….

Dama survived.......

Dama had been wandering the streets since a long time. Once she was the dog of a Spanish family but when they moved the dog was dumped. Since then Dama was walking through the streets hoping that somewhere a door would open for her. Unfortunately this didn’t happen and the lonely Dama became skinnier and malnourished, her condition became worse and worse…..Until one day she couldn’t stand on her paws anymore….She was taken to a clinic and then it became clear how bad her condition was caused by many months wandering the streets……

Bieke was dumped because of a prolapse......

Bieke was one of the dogs of a hunter, she would become one of so many…..

Five dogs saved from drowning......

These five sweethearts: YannaVoskeTini, Zorro and Lara were saved from drowning at an old lady in Cartama. One of the dogs, Yanna, even had puppies….They have been very lucky!

Separation is painful, for everyone.....Ginette and Prince.....

A young man needed our help, his wife had left him and he stayed behind with their four dogs. 

Artemis, wandering the street with a broken paw.....

Artemis was wandering since weeks somewhere in a village near Sevilla…..

Donovan was thrown over the wall.......

I wouldn’t want to witness someone throwing a dog over the wall, how, for heaven’s sake can you do a thing like that? A hard smack followed by a heartbreaking cry was our first encounter with this little guy, Donovan……He had been thrown over the wall, his teeth and face were covered in blood because of the blow….At first we thought that he was badly hurt but luckily it wasn’t so bad, the worst is his terror…..During the first days Donovan had a hard time but now he is doing better, he is very grateful and good with animal and people, a real cuddly bear, overflowing with friendship…

The story of Knorreke, condemned to die?

Knorreke is 11 years old, he was the dog of a Spanish family. When they too k him for a walk last week, they discovered that Knorreke suddenly couldn’t walk…..

Priscilla, another heavily pregnant Bodeguero on the street......

Priscilla was wandering the neighborhood around the killing station and heavily pregnant….She was brought in and it seemed like her puppies would be born there but we have taken her away and were able to give her an abortion in time…It was only after the operation that we noticed how skinny she was. She had probably been on the street since weeks, maybe months, who will tell…..

The story of Gustje, the Maneto......

Gustje was born in a sad place where hunters keep their dogs……Between many Podenco’s in an overcrowded shed lived Gustje with his mama and the rest of the family…..

Julio Cesar had never felt the hand of a human.....

Julio Cesar is barely 6 months old, a male…..His mother was put on a chain to guard a building site.

Large stream of mud through the refugio......

Our oldie Pequin...

Pequin was seen at the garbage bins where he was gnawing an old bone.....

Vagebond and Senor, together on the streets...

The two of them were wandering the streets, looking for food and hungering for a bowl of fresh water…..Senor is the most sensitive of the two, he suffers terrible because of being dumped…..

They came to live with us some time ago in worrying condition……

Angela, saved from the killing station....

Anglea was dumped into the killing station suffering from enormous tumors……

Papie and kids, dumped.......

A very scared white dog with puppies was waiting at the gate……

Romana’s collar grew into her skin....And her sister Ramona.....

Romana and Ramona were saved from a typical Podencoshed, which you would never enter as a human and when you are an animal it is a miracle when you survive in here…….

Herminia, a small, 2 year old Pinscher was living like this.......

The neighbors were not happy for a long time, day and night they heard the small dog moan which was immediately followed by a heavy reaction from her boss. He didn’t accept any reaction nor complaints from the tiny thing that had been living in this horrible situation since she was a puppy….

A Spanish cat woman’s story......

Han masacrado la colonia de La Puntilla. Han matado a palos a 19 gatos y han dejado alli los cadáveres. Se sabe quièn ha sido.

Veleta, Galgo, 4 years old and then......They have to leave.....

Most Galgo’s come to us around their 4th year, at that age they are no longer the fastest runners and their activity declines……

Marcela and her puppy....

The story of this Breton Espanol, of barely 9kg, is pitiable…..

Cat Prada, locked inside a dirty cage that was falling apart and they were gone.....

I have said this often, the day will come that I write a book and the title will be: “1000 reasons to dump my pet”,…….People are very resourceful when it comes to dumping, dumping their problem with us or with other people….They have no limits……

Blind cats at the door...

Sometimes you would become sarcastic, but that’s not allowed, right!

Still you have to, sometimes otherwise you can’t keep going with this daily misery!

Hello new day, here we are again!

Two red cats in a cardboard box. They have no eyes, they are completely blind and there they are: left to their fate. Thousands of cats end on the streets , here, in my home country, everywhere, we know about this problem. These two lives are now in our hands and I want to try my utmost for them, to give them a dignified existence.

The moment you see them, feel and stroke them, it happens: you can’t go back. To let the box stay where it is, forget it! No, it’s not possible, no, we will bring the box inside and start to help these two drops in this enormous ocean! 

Linda, standing at the vet's table to be euthanized..

Linda, only 11 months old, she thought that she was “HOME”, the kids were her best friends, she was faithful to her owners and follwed them wherever they went, in short, she was happy, Linda was a happy dog.
