The Lucky Lucy Foundation: Help Milky!


Lucky_Lucy   Dragging my legs along, trying to keep going, but I can't, I can't live day in and day out on a sewerage farm, between dirt and filth, I can't live off what I have been living off anymore. I just can't, my body aches and shivers, itches and burns, I give up....I don't understand my pain, all over, inside and out. Why did my parents dump me, why did they leave me to suffer and wither away like an autumn leaf disintegrating, making way for summer. But I can't make way for any sunshine in my life, I have got no life left in me, no fight, no strength and no reason. It's lonely here in my body, a prison. Read more...

Zorro In Dire Straits! Can You Help?


 zorro     Zorro (African Tails 2011 calendar star) is in dire straits. He was rescued one year ago in Atlantis as a scrawny, skinny pup with bad mange. He was adored and nurtured in various foster homes until he finally settled down for good with a loving and devoted family. Zorro was unfortunately a bit too vocal for them and his high pitched, incessant barking resulted in him having to be relocated to yet another foster home as he was keeping his new family out of sleep (along with their newborn baby), neighbours were complaining and nerves were frazzled.Read more...

Milla's story


milla3   Milla was rescued along with 6 siblings from the Nomzamu Township in Somerset West. 4 of those siblings have already gone to their forever homes, but Milla's search continues. This is her story:

Hello everybody, my name is Milla, well that's what my foster mom calls me and I am almost 10 weeks old. About 3 weeks ago I was taken from my cold, wet and damp home along with all my brothers and sisters and sent to live with a very kind lady and her older doggy (who's a little bit grumpy). One of my sisters came to live with me, I was so happy to have her with me, because I was so scared! Read more...

My Eyes Tell A Story...


Prince's Plight

Prince_1_   Prince is a Rottweiler X from Wesbank, a small township near Delft. His owner contacted us when he injured his leg after“patrolling the neighbourhood” one night. We took him to our vet ASAP and while waiting for the vet we noticed that poor Prince was in a world of pain, not only from his swollen front paw, but he was also limping on his one back leg (opposite side than the injured front leg). It was a pitiful sight to see him trying to balance to lift his leg just to make a wee! While we waited for the vet to help Prince, he eventually collapsed from exhaustion… we had to physically pick him up again to get him into the vet’s office…Read more...
