Urgent Veterinary Bills

In Sled Dog Rescue Sanctuary in Cyprus, we aim to allow dogs to be themselves and express their natural behaviors. The dogs have freedom of running, digging, creating friendships with other dogs and volunteers.

The goal of our organization is to provide them with quality life while they are waiting to find their forever homes. One of the rules we have is that every dog has to have access to veterinary care when needed. To maintain good health, we have to provide them with regular check-ups, tick and flea protection, deworming, and treat them when they get ill. Just because they are rescue dogs, does not make it acceptable to neglect their fundamental needs.

Life in the Sanctuary is busy. From time to time, accidents happen. The dog may scratch himself while playing, or “pick a play-fight with a bee”. This is just life. We all would like to protect our pets from all the dangers in the world, but in reality, there is as much as we can control. While dogs are waiting to find their homes, we want to make sure that they stay healthy. We were doing well so far, but 2020 Pandemic took a big financial toll on humanity, and as a result on rescue dogs.

Our most urgent veterinary bills have to be paid as soon as possible.

Food and health are the basics we must provide to the dogs. If we fail at that, there is no point in even trying to help.
We ask all dog lovers, people who are passionate about Nordic dogs, and generally all the kind people in the world to help these dogs. Some vet bills are as small as 40 euros, while other dogs may have a pending bill of 400 euros. If you can help even a little bit, please scroll down to take a look and pick the dog you want to support.

All sponsors will receive copies of the receipts for paid bills, and thank you from a dog they helped!

With gratitude, the SDR team.

Joey

Joey
Pending vet bill: 156,50 euros
Collected: 15 Euros

Joey survived incredible abuse since he was a puppy, but he did not let that break his spirit. Due to unique circumstances, Joey needed more examinations to rule out any health condition that could have caused his behavior. Dogs like Joey would usually be euthanized, but he deserved the same help as any other dog. Please consider helping him out with vet bills, so he can continue having access to veterinary care while he is waiting to find his home.

Leila survived government shelter while being pregnant. She is our knight and the most affectionate husky girl. However, life in the shelter took a toll on her health. It took months before we could bring her to good health. It resulted in quite a large veterinary bill. We of course, would want Leila to find a home, but it is vital that while she is waiting, she can have access to veterinary care. Please consider helping her out. .

Lara

Lara
Pending Vet Bill: PAID
Collected: 39 Euros

Lara joined the rescue before she turned 1 year old. It was sad to see young dog so obese that she struggled to run – one thing that huskies love to do so much. However, with the correct diet, exercises and under observation of the vet, she dropped the weight in no time.  Lara deserved better than being an obese 8 month old puppy, as well as she deserved help with her vet bills. Please consider helping Lara.

Meli

Meli

Pending Vet Bill: PAID
Collected: 53 Euros

Meli is our little social butterfly. She enjoys the company and group/family activities. When she is not playing with the pack, she is cuddling with people or trying to engage cats to play with her. Meli is also nosy and curious and sometimes it gets her in trouble.  Considering that Meli came to us in such a poor health, we do not feel safe having any pending bills. Otherwise she can lose access to veterinary care when she needs it.

Nala

Nala

Pending Vet Bill: 79,50 Euros
Collected:

Nala is 8 months old teen pup. She is  clever girl with an amazing temperament.  But puppies usually mean big expenses: all the vaccinations and check ups they need on average cost more than for an adult dog. They can not travel at 9-10 weeks, so expenses for rescuers are extended to 4 months at least. Pandemic put a lot of adoptions on hold, which meant puppies will be staying longer. The longer they stay the more expenses we have. If you can help Nala a little bit, please do so.

Silky has a small pending bill and if we can zero it, that would ensure she gets help any time she needs it. Trust us when we say, Silky deserved all the help and support in the world!

Wesley

Wesley

Pending Vet Bill: 83,00 Euros
Collected:

Wesley’s previous owner left to another country , leaving him behind. Wesley is a young, healthy dog, but he did not have documents, vaccinations etc. We had to do everything from scratch, even though he was not a stray dog. Wesley needs all the help he can get, and certainly he deserves it. Having him only for few months we can not imagine how hard it must have been to leave him behind, but we do not know if the owner felt that way.  If you can help Wesley with vet bills , it would increase his chances to continue getting help and hopefully finding forever home soon.
