Pumba & Nala’s journey home!

Update posted by Tracee Cullen On Mar 16, 2019


It's been a hard day for pups.. today was the day they had there bloods done ready to be sent to the EU we will be doing this via Belgium! and they have also had today their final puppy booster vaccinations.

Still not keen on the car so it always a bit of a fraught journey with much drooling try to keep from car sickness.. bless them. Crashed out asleep on return and cuddled together for peace and contentment.. these puos must always be together!

I will be returning next month to see them, have them with me for sometime and continue the journey of this process.🧡🙏🐕🐕

Glad they love cats too as I have a very patient 'Spooky' awaiting to meet them.xx

Please share everyone as your help with funding and support all round has been essential.. I couldnt have done this without you all.🙏gratitude for your kindness. X

Namaste - My soul honours your soul,

So thank you again to everyone that is supporting and helping to tell others about this cause.. I have taken the pups for several appointments in the past few weeks to make sure that they are all ready for the process now of sending blood tests to the 'EU' (ironically).. for clearance as needed.

There is much to do to be ready for this and we have done it! We have survived the car journeys that especily Nala does not apprieciate due to car sickness but she is still so upbeat and getting better each journey we do.. Pumba just chills out and relaxes.

They love the attention and love from the 'team' at the vets.. literally each visit - 3 or 4 vetinery staff spend time focused on each pup.. the serious stuff and checks are done with love and cuddles.. and they each visit get a pedicure and ears checked as well.. an overall observation.. they treat each one with dedication.. know there names and make a huge fuss of them.. which is an absolute godsend considering how far we have come.. to have this support is much welcomed!

So I have because of your kindness of donations been able now to pay for the EU blood processing and the process is now in place. They will have the blood tests done on 16th March as this is date allowed (as everything is done with precision timing from vaccination) and then we have to follow out the timing set out by them for the results to be received and the period of 3 months has to be abided by before we can plan the next part of the journey.

In terms of costings the EU blood testing has been £265 + 58Euro (each) plus I have paid in advance for there next booster that is required on the same date of £22.

All in all the process so far has been funded and is in alignment for each visit and the amount has been divinelg I assisted. This does now of course mean that we are in need of the rest of the funding to help keep this on track with the timings given.. I am doing everything I can physically complying with visits, red tape and working through the process which has been intense!

The vet is very knowledgable and this wouldnt be possible without her precision, understanding and knowledge.. she sends so many pets overseas and does so with offering a peace of mind.

Since collecting the pups after a fraught few days when they had to return the charity and were still vulnerable from the Parvo virus.. my intuition was as always thankfully on point and lead to my assertive decision making & immediate action for their health, care & wellbeing.. (eternally grateful to my house owners for giving me their car at drop of a hat that day and many times this past month) whilst also trying to decifer if this plight to rescue them was even possible.. wading through so much 'wrong information' that was given, the charity has no part or guidance in this process either to offer and so remaining strong the face of adversity when a total lack of support from many avenues in the plight to take these amazing pups home.. WE ARE HERE.. well into the process.. and the next big step all in place and paid for.

With enough love and kindness from all those that have so far donated and amazing support from my family, friends (both India & UK), students, clients and at time strangers that have become friends through this journey.

Also a huge thank you to the universal serendipity to have met the person that offered boarding and now looking after the pups who also is helping assist in the required vet government, agent visits etc in my absense when I cant always be there.🧡

The pups were very unsettled for few days as 'knew' something was going on.. took an instant dislike to my suitcase!! Yet once taken to where they are staying (a longer car journey..sorry Nala) they settled with accepting the staffs love and kisses as well as the bribery of puppy biscuits to be welcomed. I have just had update to say they are more settled now.

So thats my update.. thank you for your time to read this and for caring. Please if you can share the funding link, tell people about Pumba and Nala and help me in this next very important stage of rasing funds for the next essential part of the journey..

Namaste - 'My soul honours your soul',

Tracee.xx🙏

It's been a hot day here today.. spent.. taking these precious souls to the vet to continue their required vaccinations and health checks for pups.. so all is well..🧡

A healthy 9.4kg & 9.6kg!

Tired them out.. as they still getting used to the car.. wouldn't be so bad if wasn't 30+ degrees 🙃😏 so at the moment the cooler UK weather would be refreshing.

Now for a relaxing evening replenishing.🧘‍♀️

Funding seemed to have holted.. so please reshare and help these pups get home.. at the moment I can only get the first stages done.. its a start.. and all is going well.. and on track..

..but we will need the funding to continue to target to get next stages done soon.. lets bring fresh positive energy to the campaign.🐕🐕

Namaste,

Tracee. Xx

Hi everyone..

So thank you again for your donations..

Although there is a way to go I have enough now for the initial the process to get the offical paperwork, bloods that have to be sent to UK and pet passport - this process has begun with the Dr/vet.

This will take some time as expected.. in the meantime I have found a lovely caring place to board these pups whilst I am not here which gives them the freedom to run in lovely gardens and live in a home environment it is £140 per month which is in addition to this funding page.

After this process is complete.. and they are allowed to travel.. all being well in June I can then look at the funding to see how close we are to bringing them back.. if not they will be boarding or with me when I am here until this is possible.

This also gives me the oppotunity to raise funding through events etc in the UK to help assist this process.

If anyone is able/wanted to hold a fundraising event to contribute then please let me know as this would also be grately appriciated and any monies raised can be added to this page manually as I have already done when people have given me money directly.

Thank you again.. PLEASE SHARE and tell people about this to help raise awareness.

Namaste, Tracee.xx🙏🐕🐕

Hi everyone,

Thank you to all that have donated and also those who have shared this link, or told others about Pumba & Nala's Journey..

In a couple of days I will be meeting with the Vet who deals with the paperwork for this to happen. This really is the main cost for this journey as weirdly the flights and vaccines are not so much.

It is therefore essential that the funding page is reaching more people and continuing to achieve a steady growth for this to happen.

Please can you all share this with as many as you can think of that will resonate and support in some way.. even if not financial but to make others aware.. it all helps.. and WE are these pups voice!

Once in the UK they would love to meet you all to show their appreciation!

I will of course keep all receipts and log all expenses to make sure that everyone that donated can get to see the procees for the journey and where the money has been spent.

This may also help others that do this in the future!

Namaste,

Tracee Cullen.xx

These pups are creating awareness here in Goa as they have now been out on a lead briefly to vets - but as the local mindset is to have 'local' dogs (which they are) on a chain outside permanently as security..

To see people watching them full of play and love and on a lead has definately raise some eyebrows.. even one man saying he wants one (although he won't follow through) it's a start to help bring change.

Another local lady helped me with them coming back from the vets yesterday.. she took Pumba on the lead and lifted him step by step to my house - then said it was the first time she has touched a dog! Yeah progress🙏 it's all about awareness and changing the mindset as it is 'trendy' here at the moment to have a Alsation, Pit bull or Labrador.. as I was told by a local goan lady who is a dog lover and has 4 - they class local dogs as security and other breeds as pets.😥

So these pups definately need some help as they are way on their journey.

Please also know that there is an extensive programme here run FREE by many charities that neuter dogs every single day.. it is again awareness and education to owners.

There are also many brits and other foreigners that bring their dogs to India.. so the balance of good homes need to be considered in all options.

Namaste.. thank you for your kindness.xx
