Jimmy and Kizzy,s Fight To Walk Without Pain Fundraiser

This by far the biggest and most severe fundraiser we have ever had to post, unlike most rescues we only ask for additional funds in extreme circunstances. Jimmy and Kizzy,s story is the most cruel and barbaric situation we have had to date.

Jimmy and Kizzy have both come to us from a horrific animal hoarding situation in Ireland, we really don,t know what these poor soles have gone through in their short lives and maybe its best we don,t know the full extend of cruelty they,ve had to endure.

Jimmy is just 3 years old and must have spent all of his short life in severe pain. He was found shut in a small room covered and living in his own faeces and cowering under a chair. The full extent of his injuries where not apparent as he was so scared of human contact at first that no one could get near him. We thought at first he may have hip dysplasia..if only !! No one was prepared for the shock results of his xrays and how this gentle boy is even walking is just beyond belief. His xrays show that BOTH his back leg knee joints are completely shattered and whilst he has managed to walk ok,  he must be in such unbearable pain but he doesn,t show it. The specialist thinks he was either kept in such a confined space when very young or he has been beaten and left to his own devices. This must have happened very early on in his life as his upper body is very strong from dragging his lower torso around. And now for the hard bit. Jimmy is going to need extensive surgery which is going to involve have both knee joints replaced in order for him to have a pain free life . Whilst we have a great specialist lined up to help he is going to need special joints made as he is so small and this is going to cost between £8,000- £10,000 and we are determined to raise this so we can give Jimmy the best life possible.

Kizzy was found in the same room as Jimmy and thankfully her injuries are not so severe but equally disturbing. As you can see in Kizzy,s picture she is missing her foot which is not a accident of birth. The people who saved her think she may have chewed her own foot off out of sheer desperation from a bad injury. Because her foot is missing the weight of her thigh is just hanging and is causing her extreme pain so the vets have said it is best to amputate the whole leg. Kizzy is picture with her pup who is keeping her happy at the moment and is not ready for rehoming yet. Kizzy gets very distressed when her pup is not around and we are told that this is probably the first time she,s known one of her pups as all puppies where drowned the minute they where born in the hoarding house. We do have the funds for Kizzy,s operation but felt it only right that we shared her story as part of this fundraiser.

 

Please do help us to give these special dogs a chance at a pain free life, even if you can just donate £5 towards the appeal hopefully it will soon add up.

 

Thank you for reading their stories and thank you all in advance for your kind donations.

 

Update 3/9/15

Well its been 3 weeks since we started this appeal and your response has been amazing, at present we have £7500 towards Jimmy,s new knee,s and i,m sure that with your continued support we will reach our target. Jimmy goes for a CT scan today in preperation of his operation in a couple of weeks time. Kizzy has now had her operation and is recovering amazingly and running around a lot more easily now. Once she is signed off by the vet she will be looking for her own extra special home. Her pup  Snowie is now available for rehoming as we feel that rehoming them togeather would be lovely they both have different needs.

Flo

Flo is a dear little girl who was surrended to the council pound in Ireland, when she arrived she was very underweight and in a very neglected condition. A local rescue over in Ireland have been getting her into good physical condition before she came over to us. She is very small in size but big in personality, she loves other dogs and would need a very playful companion if homed with another dog as she likes to swing off dogs tails !! She is just finishing her season so will need to be speyed in a few months time under our adoption contract.

Bella

Black and White, Short Coat, Female, 1-2 years old

 

Belle is a very energetic dog and she is extremely agile. She has a wonderful temp. but would be best in a home where she is doing something.  I think  Belle would make a great search dog her agility and stamina are amazing.  A super dog but not for the faint hearted.

Rock

Black and white,Long  Coat, Male, 9 months old

 

This is lovely ' ROCK.'  He is looking for a new home,with someone who can give him plenty of time and patience,with all the care that a young collie needs. Rock  has a wonderful temperament and gets on fine with other dogs ,but  will not necessarily need a canine companion as long as he is not left alone for any length of time. He is bred from working parents and therefore has typical collie traits and lots of energy! ......so requires a large secure space to run and play.  Rock is at an ideal age to train for any outdoor activities, or would just be happy with lovely long daily walks. He will need consistent  companionship, and being an adolescent ,will need an understanding owner who is experienced with this wonderful breed.  He will need to start with the basics in training, but will learn super fast!  Rock will in no doubt mature into a loyal and obedient friend if given the correct guidance, giving heaps of love back to his lucky owner.   If you think you can give this lovely young boy a happy and healthy life then please get in touch.
