Why else would a family dog have fleas or intestinal parasites if not from neglect? And so the reason sweet Canela was brought to the clinic of Compassion Without Borders in Mexico in a trash bag and ordered to be euthanized by her owner because she had parasites had been a very disturbing and tragic story. Of course, the southern California based non profit organization had no intentions of ending the sweet dog’s life for a condition that could be easily treated, and months later Canela is now healthy, happy and ready to come to California to find her “forever” home.
Tomorrow, Compassion Without Borders will have the opportunity to transport Canela and 59 other dogs out of Mexico – the organization’s biggest international rescue to date. Canela and 28 other dogs still need transport sponsorship; cost is just $150 to help a dog and save a life.
Kiwi and Mango were also brought into the Mexico clinic a few weeks ago. Both were covered in mange and had a very difficult time beginning their lives. Volunteers and staff fell in love with them instantly. They received the care they needed and are now ready to begin their lives. Won’t you help?
