The "Hotline" Babies

Hope and Morris - adopted
Please meet a few recent rescues. Except for Jack, all of them are stray animals saved from difficult, life-threatening situations.  They were spotted by Canadian tourists who decided to make a difference. They receive medical attention and care before being adopted to their homes. They have been spayed or neutered by Dr. Slavik Zenkov.

Hermione - adopted
Angelo - rescued and fostered for a family in Canada 

Missy - rescued and fostered for a family in Canada
Tia - adopted

Jack - rescued and fostered
Jack the pit-bull was found on the street abandoned by his owner, severely beaten and almost starved to death. He is a victim of an illegal dog-fight gambling. At first, he could not even lift his head. A caring Cuban family took him in and he was immediately examined by Dr. Slavik and given medication. Our supporters collected money for Jack - to help the fostering family and his caregivers: Dr. Slavik, Dr. Ponce and Ingrid.

Today, although still skinny, Jack enjoys his small walks and all the attention he receives. His total recovery will take time, but we hope that he will regain his strength and will find a permanent home where he will be loved as pet.
