Morty and Rick
We have a terribly sad story to share….
We were recently contacted by a Brit working in the Congo, he and his colleagues had been taking care of 2 local dogs known as Basenji’s since they were just a couple of weeks old. They are now 7 months old but their caregivers have now been told the dogs cannot stay with them anymore.
Life for a dog in DRC is not an easy life. Not only do they have to contend with extreme humidity, mango worms and a number of other not so nice parasites, dogs are considered a delicacy so although there are a few dogs around only the ones that are very streetwise manage to avoid being captured and eaten. Rick (brown/white) and Morty (brown) have absolutely no skills at all to survive the jungle, they do not understand that not all humans are kind so it is pretty much a certainty that if they are turned out into the jungle then they will approach someone fairly quickly and meet a horrible end.
War Paws has been asked to help to get these lovely lads to the UK and we have to find a way to make it happen as we cannot just walk away and leave them to certain death. We do not have the luxury of time on our side for this mission, we must move to get them on a flight as soon as we can. On arrival in the UK they will need to be quarantined for up to 6 months but we will actively be seeking a new family for them ready for when they come out.
Please help us to make this happen, we need to raise in the region of £6000 to cover all of their costs and whilst we know we are unlikely to reach that amount quickly we do need to try and raise as much as we can in the next few days so we can get the ball rolling and have the dogs moved to somewhere they will be safe until we can arrange their flights. Every donation, no matter what the amount will help us to keep these lovely pups safe so please consider a donation and remember to share their story.
