SOS: Our Jack Sparrow

Pining for his friend

Who says dogs have no feelings!!!

Jack Sparrow and Tom Hanks were rescued together from a terrible place by a police officer. They were intended to be used as bait in dog fighting. Two really brave animals who have always, always been together.

They had been stolen from somewhere, who knows but they were always together. In the Refugio they always did everything together and both were well behaved animals.Jack Sparrow has been with us since January. Tom Hanks had more luck. He went to a great foster family and was adopted very quickly from there.

When Tom Hanks left, we though our Jack would soon follow. But when Tom left our darling changed into a quiet, listless dog. He eat something the first day, but kept looking and looking around - where was his friend? It was really heartbreaking to see how this dog was missing his friend .. how he thought he would come back, how he continued to hope and then gradually gave up.

Our Jack Sparrow urgently needs a foster family or an adopter who wants to give him a happy life ... he is mourning now gradually his spirit is breaking  .. we are making a separate appeal  here because we're worried about this sweet dog - we need to do something urgently that can revive him and change his life .. and help him forget the past.

Please read more about this beautiful, sad dog here and watch him playing with his friend Tom Hanks on the video - and please help if you can.

Sabina - a long two-year wait

Sabina also been waiting for two years waiting to be adopted, who wants to give her a real "home" ??

For years Sabina and her friend Elvio spent their days in a small, smelly room, shut off from light and air, with just a bit of green water at their disposal. They were occasionally given some food. When a girl discovered their distressing condition, she immediately filed a complaint with the Environmental Police. When the owner of Sabina and Elvio heard of it, he just let them loose on the streets. For weeks they walked around the village, always together and inseperable. Until finally we were able to catch them.

Elvio was adopted after several months, but Sabina is still here. She's a brave lady who definitely stands her ground among the other dogs. With people she is friendly and social. She is very smart and learns quickly. Who will finally give Sabina finally her ticket towards happiness?
