The horror that has engulfed the Sanctuary for the past few weeks has taken its toll in many ways. Currently, only two of the pups affected by the outbreak of Canine Hepatitis have survived.
There is, as you can well imagine, and air of sadness, not to say devastation, permeating the place, with the puppy pens empty. The more immediate issue, is that of the cost of the epidemic. The total vet bill for treating the dogs and pups affected is around €8000.
There is in addition a necessary move to have all the dogs vaccinated, and a separate fund has been established to achieve this within the shortest possible time.
The latest information is that we have around 30% of the money for the treatment costs, and €1100 towards the vaccination programme. We obviously need much more, but this is a great start, and tremendously encouraging. Please do whatever you can to help us get through this period of crisis. Thank you.
