Running out of Time

One day, we got a call about a dog, who had been hit by a car…When we came to check on that dog, we saw that he had trouble walking, that he had several injuries, was malnourished and had a bad eye. He was most likely in great pain and so we immediately took him to the vet and organized for a private kennel. As we learned later, his name was Ubav (which means „beautiful“ in Macedonian). He was a stray who had been living under a bridge, where a homeless family shared their food with him...

The vet concluded, that Ubav is blind on the injured eye, which was completely popping out of his eye socket. As for his back legs, the X-Ray showed no broken
bones and so we thought that Ubav was "lucky"!….but WE WERE WRONG….

His blood analysis (antibody testing) showed extremely high levels of Ehrlichiosis and Leishmaniasis - two of the four deadly „Mediterranean Diseases“; The diagnosis felt like a punch into the heart

Within such a short time, this guy showed us how much he wanted to live and  finally witness the love and sunshine he deserves. He truly is such a wonderful dog with a beautiful soul: Can you imagine that he just finished his therapy against Ehrlichiosis?! 

But although these news underline the fighting spirit of this boy, we are highly aware of the dangers that come along Leishmaniasis: The treatment is complex and expensive and in order to limit the side effects, we need to act quickly and take MAXIMUM PRECAUTIONS.
Organ failure is one of our prior concerns, but with your help, Ubav will be able to fight this disease under the best possible conditions!* (We have listed the total details of his expenses below.)

Will you take part in his recovery and fight his battle alongside us?

C’mon guys, together, we can make it! Please donate for Ubav and share his story!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

If Ubav had been caught by the Macedonian public shelter, he would have already been sent into a never ending sleep, since dogs with Leishmaniasis are „not worth“ the effort, according to the public authorities…

Luckily, Ubav is in our care and we will never give up on our boy.
