Porkie The Abused Old Dog- Update!


Porkie was found at the start of lockdown in De Doorns…sitting shaking, doing her very best to be invisible…

99.9% of the time we’re blown away with the tenacity and ingenuity De Doorns residents show in caring for their pets, however, in Porkie’s case removal was the only option (yes the puppies were removed also).

She came to us with a serious eye injury, tick bite fever, raw nerves exposed in her teeth from eating rocks, she was also newly pregnant- had she not been rescued neither she nor her puppies would have survived as she had advanced pyometra (latin for pus-uterus, we’ll let your imagination do the rest).

You guys donated and shared her story and here she is now, saying a HUGE THANK YOU and living her best life! 

If you can help us keep rescuing please use the donation options below, for you it’s a monetary donation, for them it’s the difference between life and death!
