Hi! My name is Salma and I am raising funds to get a stray dog the treatment and help she needs. Recently a dog has shown up and made her home near my grandparents' home in the countryside, which isn't very friendly to stray dogs as they tend to be automatically seen as wild or as a risk to poultry and other farm animals, but this one was not in a pack and didn't approach humans so they let her stay and people fed her from time to time. At first they thought she was pregnant, but it has now been months and she still hasn't given birth, her stomach has gotten more deformed and she is now fairly lethargic + seems to have trouble eating solid foods. Vets I've shown her picture to are telling me it might be a growth or that the puppies she has been carrying have now petrified.
Some of the village youth have tried to catch her, but she bolts the moment someone tries to touch her and the couple of times they got their hands on her she started yowling and biting, plus we have no way of transporting her to the city as the country is in lockdown and a pass is needed to travel in between. The one vet in the village mostly cares for farm animals and claims to have no knowledge about dogs + requires an extraordinary amount of fees for just diagnosis. I've spoken to a vet in my city who offers a catch and transport service, and I have been quoted an amount for that + tests that I frankly can't pay as I am student + my family's funds have been run dry by Covid-19. I've reached out to a couple of animal shelters but there is nothing they can do as they have been stretched thing by the covid situation + I need to get her to them so the issue is still the same.
Please share or donate if you can, as I'm afraid her situation is only getting worse or that someone might end up hurting her. I don't have much to offer, but for every donation I'll gladly make you a little poem featuring your name. Thank you!
