We are Polly and Sava and we are reaching out to you so we can provide shelter for three puppies: Zara, Ericka, Cassy. The puppies are all from the same litter, born in March 2019. They were found on the street together, right next to a trash can and close to a main street (we still have no idea who left them there). Our vet believes they were about three weeks old when we found them. Our biggest fear when we saw them is that they are so close to the main street that it is a matter of hours before they get hit. It was really easy to approach them but we could tell they were very scared as they were shivering.
And just like that my fiancée (Sava) and I (Poli) were driving with 3 pups in the back of our car. We were able to get them checked, vaccinated, and in a safe place, away from busy roads and other dogs at our farm house. We wanted to find somebody to adopt them, however, all the people that were interested refused to when they found out that they are not purebred. None of them was adopted. It's been 7 months since then, and they have grown to be adorable young ladies that we care very much for!
We really don’t mind taking care of them as we've grown so attached to them, however, the financial side of it is really weighing in on us.
The pups live outside. Currently, they have small houses, all three of them, that we managed to build with reused wood. We want them to be able to have a good winter and have new, warm dog houses. We have estimated that each dog house will cost us approximately 60$. We want to have them ready before the end of October as temperatures are expected to drop. We need 180$ for houses.
Another really crucial concern for us is neutering them. All of them are female. As we do not plan to have babies, we believe it is best for them to be fixed. A castration in Bulgaria cost approximately between 70-80$. We ask that you help us raise additional 210-240$ for neutering them.
And finally food… as you can see they are big! They eat about 35$ a month of dog food (unfortunately, we buy the cheapest brand, because we cannot afford more expensive foods). A year of food for them is about 420$.
I really want to give them a chance and for them to have a decent life. They are friendly, curious, and very energetic (except for Cassie- she is very mature). Please, help us help them!
Average monthly wage in Bulgaria is 500$-700$. We simply cannot afford keeping three big dogs at the moment (in addition to the cat, older dog, and 15 chickens we already had).
