Help a furkid in need

Hello, my name is Sandy!


More about me

Female (Medium). Mixed breed. Under-1 - DOB: 2015.

Shelter: Barking Mad Network (Western-Cape)
Tel: 084 519 0380

We need a foster for her (Northern Suburbs of Cape Town – she needs vet follow-ups) urgently.

Sandy is an unwanted – and severely neglected – young dog. She needs you!

She was tied up next to a rubbish bin.
Under her shaggy coat, she’s all sticking-out ribs and spine, and hollowed belly.
She had pups in this state some time ago (all gone)
Her fur is patchy and like sandpaper.
She is so hungry for food AND love.
She is the friendliest, most gentle girl imaginable.
She needs your help.

If we do not find a foster by Friday, she may have to go back to this house with the people who let her get into this state.

We planned to uplift her this weekend (we couldn’t take her sooner as it was after hours when we came across her and we had nowhere to take her).

When our volunteers went to check on her yesterday, they found her depressed, with a large gash on her neck, limping due to a bite wound to her hind leg. Allegedly, she got loose from her rope (she has been tied up)… No doubt, if our volunteers hadn’t visited, they would never have bothered calling us – they really just don’t care.

She has gone to TAH Bellville BUT she can only stay until Friday!

Pllllleeeeeeease help! We need someone caring and patient to help get her healthy and happy.

Fosters are temporary homes. We will provide her food and antibiotics, a collar, bed – whatever is needed. You just need to provide love and care and a safe place for her to recover, administer medicine, clean her wounds if needed, and take her to the vet for follow ups. She has been treated with fiprotec for the fleas and ticks.

She is good with other dogs and with cats and children. She has a lovely personality and just needs TLC. We can’t express how urgent this is.

If you can help, please get in touch soon at 084 519 0380 or Fosters need to be in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town as she will need to see the vet again soon.

If you’d like to contribute to her treatment, we would be eternally grateful.  Even a small amount will help.
