RESCUE SUCCESS STORIES

For over a year, SHIINA (as in.. Queen of the Jungle) was a stray living in a wooded area along a major highway.  She survived by eating road-kill and the occasional meals left along the road by concerned area residents.  After many months of eluding our efforts with humane traps...Eureka ! She's now a tame, sweet-natured dog, happy to have all the 'comforts of home'.


Shortly after IISTRA was born, her nest was destroyed along with all of her brothers and sisters.  With a great deal of loving care and medical attention, she survived with only a blind eye as a distant memory of that sad day.  She is very playful and especially adores her sparrow friend.
 


As a fledgling, our little sparrow, ZHAQEL, was attacked, and as a result lost one of his wings.  He's been with us for nine years now.  He loves his daily piece of banana treat, has his own personal birdbath (warmed to his preference), and his best friend is a bunny.  He greets us every morning with a song and responds in chirps whenever we speak to him...A happy little fellow !


VASCHA was hit by a car and required a delicate surgery to place a plate in his hip.  While recuperating, he was joined by TIGAHN, an orphaned fawn who came to us frightened, alone, and near death.  Quality medical treatment, proper nutrition, and personal care have given them a second chance.  The two remain great friends and now enjoy safe and carefree lives here in protected surroundings.


CANCUN was brought to us when she was found in a leg-hold trap.  Amputation, and weeks of medications and fluids were necessary to save her life.  We nursed her back to health, and released her here in the safety of the sanctuary.  We see her various times throughout the year and are thrilled to know she's doing so well.


Several years ago as a stray, TOUCHE' was hit by a car sustaining a crushed pelvis, loss of a leg, and impaired bodily functions.  We brought him home, and found a reconstructive specialist who did such a miraculous surgery that Touche' now streaks through the house with his friends.  Even though we still must help him express his bladder, he enjoys a normal, happy, healthy life.


Our beautiful boy, ZUHRI (fondly known as ZuZu), was rescued from slaughter.  His life was spared after being sold at auction to become meat.  He's one of the gentlest, most loving animals here and will live out his life roaming in lush pasture with his other cow family members.


How do you get a pill into a sick porcupine?...Very carefully !  Our little friend who was found sitting at the barn door one morning was quite ill with an upper respiratory problem.  We humanely trapped her, treated her (yikes !), and released her back to a peaceful life here at the sanctuary. 


AVEDON and SAVANAH are inseparable.  When he was just a piglet, 'Avi' was the "surgical practice" pig of a veterinary student.  At the end of the college term, the student was compassionate enough to ask us to give him a home rather than allow him to be destroyed.  Soon after, 'Savvy' was also rescued, and they became fast friends.  They both believe they've arrived in "pig heaven".


One day our sweet KABAHLA began to stumble, and lost all sense of balance.  Upon diagnosis, it was discovered he had a brain tumor.  He was rushed to Cornell University Veterinary Hospital where emergency brain surgery was performed at 2AM !  His recuperation was slow, but today he's perfectly healthy.  We're so happy to have been able to save his life.

 


For three months, BOHDII spent most of his days in a tall pine tree located in a busy downtown city neighborhood.  While the folks there found that fascinating, they also found it annoying.  Our rescue team was called, went out with extension nets, and voila ! --- Bohdii now has a new mission --- every day he sounds the morning wake-up call here at the sanctuary.


When KAHLIIL was rescued from deplorable conditions, his back ankles had open sores and were swollen to twice their size.  He was unable to walk and too sick to eat.  He was placed in intensive care at Cornell Veterinary Hospital, and needed surgeries to treat his severe leg infections.  He now lives his life in peace, able to walk and run as calves should, grazing in green pastures, sleeping in clean barns, and surrounded by love and affection.
