Story on "MJ" and Bingo

"MJ" was rescued from a plot in Gweru, the owner having 16 other dogs in reasonable condition, except for this poor little mite. The "before" photo of "MJ" is horrendous and may shock you BUT look at the "after". She has found a loving home with Crystal Wynn and the bond is strengthening daily with trust. A lovely rescue story.

Bingo was rescued from a mine near Guruve, the road had been hacked out of the bush and it took 40minutes to travel 4 kilometers! We found him chained to a stump- the chain wrapped around so tightly he couldn't move - there was no water for him either despite the high temperatures. He had an unhealed wound on his back caused from hot water being thrown over him when he killed a chicken. After spending several weeks at FAF - where he wouldn't even come out of kennel, he was so terrified, he has found a loving home where he now sleeps on the bed with his new owner, plays with his tennis ball and enjoys the company of the other dogs.

Three horses were uplifted from a farm on the outskirts of Harare - they had not been handled for 3 years , were left in a paddock with no supplementary feeding, dipping, or de-worming. They are presently under supervised care and will be re-homed in January. Thank you to every one for the tremendous response to our appeal for a home.
