MILAGROS - AN UNBELIEVABLE STORY
Nothing can prepare you for this harrowing story, but please read. Without SARA's dedication and love for animals, this little doggy would be dead. Told by SARA
There they checked her over, cut her hair and rastas off, cleaned her properly, removed all the worms from her body and decided that her leg has to be removed. They now called us with that new information and informed us that the price for the surgery would be 150€uros. What should we do? How big was her chance? Could SARA afford this?
But we could not say no. We had to give that little dog the chance to live a proper life, the chance to find out how it felt to be loved and cared for, the chance of living a decent life with no pain. This was our hope!!
Later in the afternoon we finally got the much expected phonecall. “Milagros”, that is what we called her, translated means “wonder” she had survived the surgery and was already getting better. It was wonderful to hear this news.
The day after, we could not wait any more, we just had to drive down to visit her. We wanted to stroke her, cuddle her, prove to her that not all human beeings were bad, we wanted her to feel what love meant, we just wanted to be there for her. She was lying in her box, still in pain from the operation, but already eating and drinking on her own. She looked a completey different dog, she was so tiny, so clean! This is her in the clinic when I visited:
But here the story doesn’t end yet! You remember the volunteer that found her and in tears came to get us? The same lady has decided that a dog like Milagros should not go back to the shelter, she deserved something better. She had sufferd so much in her life, and this suffering will now end. She went on Friday afternoon to the clinic in Arrecife to pick her up. She took her home to give her a new caring and loving family.
What ever is was that made that lady go that direction and find Milagros.. what ever it was that made us take it to a vet clinic and give it a chance… what ever it was, it was worth it!! This dog will now live a happy life and will learn what it means to have a home, a family and safety!
