These Before and After photos showcase the dramatic changes in some of the beautiful dogs that we have helped in Kosova.
Bones was rescued from a field in Albania where he was left to starve along with 40+ other dogs. He was severely emaciated and in a very weakened state when he arrived in our shelter but with good care and food, Bones made great steady progress and as you can see from his Before and After photos, he looks fit and healthy. Bones is adopted in Colorado.
Nero was dumped at Gracanica shelter by his owner who said he was very sick because he was losing too much weight and they couldn’t afford to care for him. We took him in to our shelter and put him on a good high protein food and provided good care and he put on weight slowly until he went from 21kg to 32kg. Nero is adopted and very loved in Canada and he weighs a whopping 42kg.
Mickey was rescued from Gracanica with 2 other dogs who were deemed the most in need of help due to their demodectic mange. He was missing most of his fur and his skin was raw and ever so painful. Mickey is a gentle giant who loved going to the vet and getting his treatment; he was so grateful for the relief and is even happier now that he is in full health and is happily adopted.
David was rescued from Gracanica with Mickey and Boris. He had a lot of fur but it was in very poor condition, as was his skin, which was red raw. After treatment for demodectic mange, a good diet and lots of love, David made a full recovery. He is now adopted in Nebraska.
Boris was rescued from Gracanica with Mickey and David. His fur and skin were so bad we couldn’t even guess at what breed he was/mixed with. Now that Boris’ fur is almost all restored and his skin is no longer affected, we can see he is a White Shepherd mix. Boris is hapilly adopted
Resa was rescued by 2 local girls who found her covered in mange and starving. She is now adopted in Canada.
