Looking Forward To Animal Rescue In 2021!

On behalf of all the staff and animals at TOLFA I would like to wish you a very Happy New Year!

2020 has been hard and challenging in many ways but we are looking ahead to 2021 and the animals that always need our help.

In the last quarter of 2020, our Rescue Team attended to 2,846 of the 2,850 emergency calls we received. A total of 1,420 animals were admitted to our hospital (1,043 being dogs) and 1,077 animals were given treatment on the street (946 being dogs).

These incredible rescue numbers are only possible through the support of people like yourself, who are keen to make a difference in the world and help the desperate number of animals that have to survive on the streets, like Jivin…

A member of the public noticed that street dog Jivin had a big wound on the back of his neck and called our rescue team - Jivin was so happy to see them that he happily jumped right into the ambulance with a waggy tail!

As soon as he arrived at the hospital the triage and treatment team got to work removing all the crawling maggots that had infested his wound and flushed the area with antiseptic solution. He was such a good boy throughout his stay with us and after a few weeks he healed up really nicely (although his ear is a lot smaller now, but he doesn't mind!).

Jivin also had deformed forelegs which is a result of rickets. He will have had this condition since he was a puppy and unfortunately there is no treatment we could give him for this as an adult. Rickets is most usually caused by Vitamin D or Phosphorus deficiency, although it can also happen when there is excess calcium in a puppy's diet (this is common in large breed dogs).

Rickets causes abnormal growth of the bone-plates so the typical 'bow legs' is often seen. We have seen many dogs with rickets, but we hope with improved education and animal diets the number of cases will reduce.

Lovely Jivin copes very well on his bowed legs, and so he was sterilised and vaccinated against rabies before being released back to his home territory where his friendly neighbours will keep an eye on him.

Each number has a story like Jivin's attached to it. We’re very grateful that you are part of our story - together we can continue to help more animals in 2021.

Warm regards,
