In mid-April, our stray animal care team in Bulgaria have rescued three severely ill stray dogs from an abandoned piece of land outside Sofia. All three dogs, whom the team has named Kovi, Kara and Tina, were on death’s doorstep. They are emaciated, suffering from tick-borne diseases and a severe form of skin disease, which makes them very itchy and uncomfortable.
In addition, these poor souls are really frightened of humans. Now in the good care of our team in the Bankya clinic, they are receiving medical treatments as well as lots of quality food and love.
Update May 2020: Roughly one month after their rescue from an abandoned property, these three dogs have made great progress! Their skin is healing and each of them has gained almost 2 kg. Their hair is slowly starting to grow back and while they are still shy, they are slowly starting to come out of their shells and enjoying human interaction – especially when this involves yummy treats.
