Gladiator!

He is doing very well in New Hampshire, gradually getting into shape to be able to enjoy outside adventures longer. He likes walking and meeting friendly human neighbors who are just happy to see him. His journey to this haven was painful and long but now all that is behind and only happy time with his loving family is ahead.We are very greatful to his wonderful adopter Michele for providing Gladiator with everything he deserves and more!

Gladiator was hit by a car in Sothern Russia. As a result he lost his eye and a leg.

Bim is adopted!

He was expelled from his home once his owners died of alcohol poisoning. No, they loved Bim, but they also loved vodka. As it usually happens all their heir needed was the real estate. Just like that Bim became a stray.

A house pet with no skills to survive in a cruel world was sitting by the building entrance and couldn’t understand why he is not allowed back in anymore. A big furry nuisance to everyone around. But not to us.

He spent 11 months at our shelter and then one day of July a short flight across Atlantic changed his life forever. His wonderful adopter Steven was looking to adopt a GSD but then he saw Bim..

Look at them now! It is like they knew each other forever! Bim could not have found a better friend and we couldn’t have wished a better life for Bim! We will continue following his adventures.

Beema

August 23, 2021

It is Beema again with the news that after a 2-hour of intense orthopedic surgery she remains a 4-pod thanks to Dr. Cleveland and his amazing team at Blue Pearl Veterinary Specialists.After the truck hit Beema at 3 months old, her left hind leg had been broken and her ligaments and knee cap were twisted in the wrong direction which kept her from straightening out her leg. She now can walk on her left hind leg much better but will need weeks of physical therapy, pain meds and care.Her right leg had an tendon rupture so she was walking on her hock and not her foot.. After left leg heals, we will most likely fuse her hock joint on her right hind leg.𝘉𝘦𝘦𝘮𝘢 𝘥𝘪𝘥𝘯’𝘵 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘨𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘳𝘵 𝘪𝘯 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦, 𝘣𝘶𝘵 𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘴𝘩𝘦 𝘩𝘢𝘴 𝘢 𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘱𝘢𝘪𝘯-𝘧𝘳𝘦𝘦 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘵 𝘰𝘧 𝘪𝘵.

Beema was able to escape the Russian shelter before the ban, and arrived to the USA in the beginning of July. She is in a much better place now! Even though she is still very timid she is learning that she is safe, and is coming out of her shell more and more, with each passing day. Her wonderful foster is a vet tech who does everything possible to create a comfortable and calm environment. To Beema this means everything!

A few days ago, she had a surgery consult, in hopes that her previous surgery can be corrected. Unfortunately, her first surgery was not successful, and our doctor believes that she is in constant pain. Her left knee is completely deranged. It is twisted with her knee cap behind the knee instead of in the front. Its a complete mess. Most likely her leg needs to be amputated. This surgery will bring Beema much needed relief, and she will be a very happy tripawd one day! Beema will need major surgery, but first needs to get a splint for her right hind leg. Her procedure is scheduled for August 18th, and she will need a 6-8 week recovery with water therapy after that. Just her surgery is estimated to cost around $6,000 – $8,000.

Please donate to help Beema on her journey to pain-free life.No donation is too small and each and every one is very much appreciated!

Snow

Her meat was posted for sale. Our sanctuary caretaker saw the ad and we immediately purchased Snow. Alive.

September 24, 2021

A cold season has come and right now it is about 6 degrees Celsius and Snow received a gift from her amazing supporter Suzanne just in time to cozy up in warm clothes!

Snow lives at our sanctuary.

She is only 5, small and skinny little mare who was clearly neglected, because who cares when animal is raised for meat!? So no one paid attention to her well-being. She was not vaccinated and her hooves were in bad shape. Poor baby didn’t know what oats are and when she was offered it she rejoiced like a child.

Snow’s living quarters are summer style and we need to prepare for winter.

We were not prepared to take in a horse and had to convert a dog house for her but it is not suitable for Russian cold winter.

It is time to build a warm well ventilated stable to make sure Snow is comfortable during long winter nights.

August 11, 2021

Snow is starting to put on some weight and truly enjoys apples but she likes cucumbers even more!

Snow a month after she arrived.

Gladiator

Gladiator is in NH! A 3-year long journey home.

No one knows who were his owners and what his life was like prior to him being shoved out the speeding car. Monsters -would be a safe bet. That day he lost everything, including his eye and a leg. What he did not lose was his love and trust in people.Months and months of treatments and rehabilitation at the shelter and no prospects of being ever adopted. He waited for 3 long years and he is finally home. We will be following his journey and continue sharing his happiness with all of his supporters.Thank you for making it possible!

WE DID IT!

TO ALL OF OUR FRIENDS, VOLUNTEERS, AND SUPPORTERS – THANK YOU!!

The CDC ban on dog import from 113 countries went into effect on July 14th 2021, which means that BLLAR rescue will not be able to bring any more dogs from Russia. When the ban was announced a month ago, our rescue bent over backwards and made a huge push to save as many Russian strays as we could… This was their last chance and our hearts break for many who were left behind. The costs of transport being outrageous, and only getting worse during this unexpected crisis – made it extremely challenging!

With your help we were able to give a chance to 55 strays – all in the past month!

This past month was incredibly stressful, and it took an enormous amount of time, emotional and financial resources. But it was all well worth it – 55 lives saved. 55 happy stories and loving connections. Many amazing people had to come together to create this miracle.

Volunteers, partner rescues, supporters – we could not do this without you: your kindness, hard work, and unconditional support was critical in this effort! And many, many more amazing people! Thank you to each and every one of you! Please know that these lives have been saved by YOU. Their future, their joy, their happiness – will now be their reality because of YOU. Please also know that by helping these 55 dogs you’ve saved at least 55 more that will take their place in our sanctuary.We are humbled by your kindness, generosity, and support.

Stay tuned for happy journeys!

CDC Suspends Dog Import

We are devastated with the news: CDC announced that US is suspending all dog import from 110 countries, including Russia. The ban is effective on July 14, 2021, and will be in place for a minimum of 12 months (to be reviewed sometime after that). This is catastrophic for our rescue, and will result in a loss of many, many lives. We currently have over 30 dogs at our Russian Sanctuary. Fifteen of them are ready to fly: they are beautiful, deserving animals – who have absolutely no chance of getting adopted locally. No one would adopt an adult dog, especially a mixed breed. The fact that none of these dogs can leave the country means that many more strays will not be saved!We are scrambling to bring the 15 sanctuary dogs to the US before the ban takes effect. We have less than four weeks! Please help us. If you see anyone you like and can help us give him/her this last chance please contact us urgently. Please spread the word. Sometime a post share is what it takes to create a miracle.Thank you, as always, for your amazing help and support!

Sasha

Sasha, a dog with human eyes who was rescued 7 months ago from a horrible hoarding situation. She spent many many long months tied to a tiny dog house, with a chopped off paw next to her dead puppies, eating fealthy substance they called food.


Sasha can cry like a human. We saw her tears first time when she left a hell hole shelter in Vladimir, Russia,
The second time 7 months later, when she arrived to the USA on May 21, 2021 and saw her mom whom she fell in love instantly with.

7 long month of rehabilitation, HW treatment and Sasha is finally home. From the first day she follows her mom everywhere and enjoys undivided attention.

We hope that is the last time she cried. No more grief!

Be happy little Sasha!

These Puppies Need Help

Looking for Sponsors!

April 11, 2021

We cought the Parvo in the very beginning and Puppies recovered quickly! They had a photoshoot and two puppies were adopted!

April 2, 2021

A family of street dogs was surviving in the ruins on a side of a busy highway, no mama in sight. All Parvo positive and we have no place to take them. One of the saved pups, a blue-eyed boy, froze into the ground and could not even move, we were only able to find him because he cried. He was hiding under the debris sitting near his 3 frozen to death siblings. Puppies are in bad shape, dehydrated, bellies swollen from parasites. We urgently need to get them to a clinic to start a treatment as no boarding facility will accept Parvo positive pups… BLLAR has no funds. But maybe we can save one baby at a time? To do that – we need to find personal sponsors for the puppies. Sponsorship is a monthly commitment and is $150 per month for each puppy (until they are placed). It includes a stay in the clinic, a treatment, a safe foster home once treated, socialization, food, and treats. It is their only chance! Please PM if you are interested in sponsoring one of them.

April 1, 2021

Dumped at a fork of the highway, in a very dangerous location. There were eight small pups and two of them have already died! The rest stand no chance if not saved.Six white-red colored babies survived. We were able to catch two weakest pups. There are still four puppies left, and each day could be their last! Tomorrow we’ll try to catch all of them. PARVO has been confirmed with first 2, meaning the rest most likely have it as well. All puppies will die if we do not urgently take them out and start treatment. They also need boarding with quarantine, medical examination and the first vaccinations urgently, or we will not be able to keep them with us! Once healthy, they can be adopted!

Each puppy needs at least $150. Help us save the little ones, they have no one else to rely on! While they are eating, there is every chance to save them.

Please Help Us Safe Them
