Of all the calls for help for endangered animals, yesterday we notice a dog that had been thrown into the sea at the Malecón. This dog had swam up the reefs and spent several days there and when we arrived we noticed she was also wounded.
The sharp rocks get their name "dogtooth" and combined with the height the wall prevented her from getting out. The trap for her was sea front and behind her the high wall.
Many dogs are thrown to their death at the Malecon, some drown, others who do not die from the sea , perish of thirst, or often hide in the drain pipes and perish at high tide. This was another case of this situation. With urgency we went there and miraculously we found the dog hiding in one of those drains she had poked her head out and thanks to the camera lens, we zoomed in and we spotted her. Immediately we seeked help and a carpenter joined the rescue. With great ease, he lowered himself over the short wall and cautiously made his way to the dog. The dog was shaking with fear and we had to win her confindence that we were their to help her. His wife joined in the rescue bringing the dog fresh water and a some food to coax the dog to come out which she eventually began to trust and made her way out.
We were joined by other activists and together and on the wall once the dog was safe we applied tick product and also quickly begin to remove them with our bare hands.
Most likely this was the obvious reason that they threw this dog into the sea. Cruelty repeated by those who know or are unable to remedy the problem with hygiene products. Blanquita is now the name given and is in our adoption program to try to find a family who will love and care for her. She receives food and fresh water, and of course the love and solidarity of those who work for their welfare.
Blanquita stays with the family that recused her, the carpenter and his wife China, his son, and their five dogs. Blanquita follows her everywhere as she believes this is her saviour and hopefully this maybe her next family.
The family dogs are also being kindly treated, and receiving the support and help of Aniplant.
Simply someone who's found their passion in helping animals.
