Introducing: Chona and Citri.
Chona was hit by a speeding truck on Ave 65 witnessed by many citizens who called the Humane Society to help. Volunteers and vets attended the scene and brought Chona back to the Humane Society. Our vet Dr Marcelo Garcia with a keen interest in orthopedics tried very hard to rehabilitate Chona from her brachial plexus injury she suffered to her right front leg. She never did regain the use of the leg and drag it around. She had no feeling in the paw and puppies often played with her paw like it was a toy. She eventually had to be amputated.
Citri fell from the truck of her owners. Barely 3 months old, her owners rushed her into the clinic. They asked everything to be done to save her life and then they abandoned her at the shelter. Citri was treated for shock and an emergency amputation was performed. She is a playful pup and has no idea that she has any limitation and she does not. She has come on our pet parade on Sunday nights and she never tires and is the leader of the pack!
These two love to play together and they are really funny to watch. Both dogs are extremely loving and playful.
Well the good news is, our good friend and kennel sponsor Mark Grenier has a home for both in New Hampshire. Mark has taken many Cozumel dogs back with him and one is a 3 legged dog named Pi. Mark loves tripods!
We are looking to get these dogs up to Boston or any other airport that will bring them near New Hampshire. American Airlines is the preferred airline to get them there, also Mexicana, United or any airline that will take underneath (forget Continental…..cargo charges). US Airways will not work as they only take under the seat. Mark is willing to drive up to 300 miles to pick them up.
Please let us know if you can help or if you know of anybody who can help escort these lovely dogs. We will do everything: papers, bring to airport, help them get checked in and stay with you until they are boarded onto the plane. It is so easy to be an escort and you are truly helping save a dog’s life by doing so.
