Venev Dogs Update: They have a chance to leave the shelter

Three dogs we rescued from the Venev crematorium have a chance to travel to the EU for adoption this month!

Viva, Vesna, and Verona turned out to be friendly and sweet house pets. They ended up in the cages at this so-called shelter to later be incinerated in the crematorium oven. Last November, we transported them to our shelter, where they underwent full vetting and spaying. They are now eagerly packing their bags.

You can play a vital role in helping them leave the shelter by donating toward their travels. If you are in Northern Europe, please consider applying to adopt one of these precious girls. They are all small to medium-sized, aged between 3 and 5 years.

Moroz

Aged over 15 years, Frost has been in the shelter since January 2016. He was discovered on a highway, his body frozen deep inside the ice. During his initial time at the shelter, he was so traumatized that he didn’t even want to come out of his kennel. He feared being evicted every time the hay in his enclosure was replaced. To this day, he remains cautious, valuing his little haven and food bowls immensely.

During walks, he quickly returns, darting back to check on his kennel before taking an inventory of his scarce belongings. He always hides some food for later. He’s been treated for bursitis in his legs and had a large wart on his ribs; however, histological tests confirmed it’s not cancerous. He needs to be feed prescription diet and is likely to spend the remainder of his days in the shelter.

Mulatka

Aged over 10 years, Mulatka has been in the shelter since 2015. She was hit by a car. As a result of the accident, her front leg had to be amputated. She’s an intelligent and kind-hearted dog. She had an emergency visit to the clinic in 2019 when she was bitten by another dog during a walk, and had a raptured blood vessel. Since then, no additional health screenings have been conducted, although it would be of great benefit to her. A quality dog food would also be ideal for her well-being.

Ray

Aged over 10 years, Ray was rescued from a shelter where, according to locals, puppies were bred and sold for meat. He arrived with a massive subcutaneous tumor on his belly, which was surgically removed and tested negative for cancer. Surprisingly, he is now lively and cheerful. Although his face is graying and his teeth aren’t in the best shape, medical tests show he’s in decent health. It’s likely he’ll spend his remaining years in the shelter.

Dina

Dina was adopted as a puppy, only to be abandoned 6.5 years later under the pretense of a family move. The heartbreak nearly took her life. She has a compromised digestive system and possibly a heart issue. She needs to go through a thorough evaluation to get the medical attention she so desperately needs.

Lilu

Aged 8.5 years, Lilu has been at the shelter since 2015, having arrived as a puppy. A pack of adult dogs tragically attacked and tore apart her entire family. Only Lilu and her sister were miraculously rescued by volunteers. Lilu sustained severe spinal injuries in the attack.

For a long time, she couldn’t walk, but with time and determination, we managed to teach her to stand again. Despite her resilience, she remains hesitant around people, hardly allowing anyone to touch her. Other dogs in her enclosure bullied her, often preventing her from eating. We’ve relocated her and she’s managed to grow accustomed to the staff member who feeds her but hides in the corner of her kennel when approached by anyone else. She’s destined to live out her days at the shelter. It’s essential to examine her heart and overall health as, since her initial admition, this has not been done. She also requires high grade food to sustain her aging body.

Zhulya

A life of over 10 years spent navigating the rough streets has sharpened Zhulya’s wits. Yet, she arrived at the shelter on the brink of death, nearly frozen to death under the snow after being almost torn to shreds by stronger dogs. After a lifetime scavenging for scraps, even her iron-clad stomach is showing signs of wear. She needs the care and nutrition she’s been denied her entire life.

Makfa

Aged between 9-10 years, Makfa has been in the shelter since 2016. One night, someone tied her to the shelter’s fence and disappeared. Fragile as she is, It’s a blessing she didn’t break free and encounter any aggressive dogs. Overwhelmed with fear, she remains wary of both humans and other dogs. She has never undergone a thorough medical examination and in desperate need of one in order to get adequate care.

Veles

Veles, an elderly German Shepherd of over 12 years, bears the chains’ weight, both physical and emotional. His old age and the scars of past neglect make it difficult for him to find a forever home, as many opt for younger, less troubled dogs. His old bones restrict his movement. He is regularly seen by a neurologist and takes a cocktail of meds to sustain his condition.
