This week has seen three new arrivals to the sanctuary. Whilst this is exciting (and very cute!) it is more of a financial strain for us to bare during these already tough times.
Our first new arrival is Lottie. Tiny Lottie is still a blue-eyed pup and, at just around 4/5 weeks old, she can be scooped up in just one hand. Lottie was brought to us by two monks who were visiting from Bangkok and spotted her at a local temple, struggling to move. Someone had slashed Lottie's back leg with a machete, cutting through many layers of skin and breaking her leg on impact. Lottie was struggling and lifeless when she came to us.
Lottie's immediate care included cleaning the wound, treating her with antibiotics, and deworming her. Lottie stayed with Denise for 3 nights as she needed round the clock care and, with the advice from vets that have previously worked here, Lottie has now been taken to Kanchanaburi vets to have her leg amputated and to undergo a blood transfusion to deal with blood parasites. Lottie will be staying with the vets for a few days before returning to us but we have had contact from the vet saying her operations have been successful and she is getting stronger by the day! Once Lottie is back she will need her standard vaccinations and aftercare.
Whilst we're happy to know that Lottie is now under our care where she is safe, we also need to ask for you help to cover the costs of taking in a sick animal and raising a puppy. So far Lottie's bill for treatment in Kanchanaburi is 9,860B (roughly £245).
Our next new arrivals really were just left on our door step. It was seen by neighbours that somebody driving past on a motorbike simply slowed down and threw two precious little kittens into the bushes outside the sanctuary. We had no choice but to fish them out of the thorns and find them a cozy cage. The kittens, now christened Tom and Geri (we're fairly sure we have one boy and one girl!), seem reasonably healthy... although UNreasonably hungry! We have already dewormed them and given them their first round of vaccinations, as well as stocked up on goats milk and kitten food.
All three of these new babies will need to be spayed as soon as they are old enough, and as we still have no vets due to Covid, this will likely be another few trips to Kanchanaburi.
We understand that times are hard for everyone and want to thank you all for your continued support of us from across the world and through every time zone. We really are grateful for every interaction we have through our Facebook, Instagram, website and emails. If you can spare some change to help us welcome our new arrivals and continue to care for our (now slightly larger) family we would be so thankful. If you cannot give this time, please consider sharing this fundraiser so others can hear the stories of little Lottie and Tom and Geri, and thank you anyway for following our journey! We'll keep you all updated :)
