Bianca mission - rescue dogs and cats from the streets and promote their responsible adoption.
Bianca educates the public about animal welfare and overpopulation problem and how important is to neuter the animals to stop their suffer.
Last night (19th July 2017) we got a 2-month-old kitten, with problems in the back legs. He was crawling on a road. Those who contacted us could not remain indifferent to that scene of a living being in need of help. Thank you André <3 This baby was starving.... skinny, dehydrated and full of fleas, beside the neurological problem of his legs. He was soon treated and medicated. He devoured the pate like a big cat :) We need wet food for kittens. We have lots of kittens. Help us and share. André (the kitten) will need a house too <3
Madiba was shoot on the back of his spine, some months ago at Quinta do Conde, Sesimbra (Portugal).
The case was delivered to the Public Prosecutor, but the case was closed due to the lack of knowledge of the person who did it. A shoot was heard but the responsible person was never found, only Madiba was there laying on the ground.
A few days after his surgery, Madiba started to walk. First whit his front legs, than the back legs started to move, although very sloppy.
The vet recommended physiotherapy, aquatic physiotherapy, to make his recovery more fast.
This boy has a great will to live!
So we took him to the appointment and treatment at the veterinary hospital.
After 2 treatments, the director of the clinic suggest a very specific blood test because she suspect something else.
Sadly the blood test came positive! Madiba suffers from Degenerative Myelopathy...
This is an uncured illness and he needs exercise to have quality of life, as long he is willing to live.
Without exercise he will became paralyzed...
Madiba is a very happy, strong and full of life dog, so we want to give him a chance while is possible.
When we thought everything was resolved, we got a tremendous chock with this new... Poor Madiba!
Probably this was the reason he was shoot, to kill him :(
The exercise he needs is aquatic physiotherapy, which costs 250€/month.
Madiba needs godmothers and godfathers for his physiotherapy as long he lives with joy.
This is a very special appeal. If you can not help us, please consider sharing it!
Last February, Madiba was shot several times, including in the spine, which caused him paralysis of the back limbs.
He was operated because the bullet fragmented the bone that prevented him from having movements in the hind legs, but had sensitivity.
The surgery went well and the Madiba began to move the back legs alone, totally by itself. It was amazing to see you <3
Today he is hospitalized for physiotherapy so that he can recover 100%.
The beast that shot him in Quinta do Conde was not discovered :( But we do not give up. Any information is welcome.
We need support to pay for surgery (almost € 1000) and physiotherapy (which costs € 500 a month)

Here we are once again with news and asking for your help.
Please take 5 minutes to read this email.
Only with your help, we can manage so many animals and so many urgent cases.
Feeding, medicating, taking care of hygiene of over 300 dogs and cats and, on top of that, having urgent cases with hospitalization and surgeries, is not an easy task, on the contrary is a very hard task.
Unfortunately, one of the animals we rescue on the night of January 28th at 20h in the night, was immediately taken to the vet by a volunteer, didn't resist and died. Had the spinal cord broken. However, we need to pay the RX and the exams / medication. He had a collar, was bit by a car in Zambujal (Sesimbra - Portugal), no one recognized the dog.
Mekinhos was found in Meco (Sesimbra - Portugal) on the side of the road. He has an anal hernia which needs surgery, urgently. This will cost 300€.
Nellie also has a hernia, an umbilical hernia. She's waiting surgery, but we cannot wait too much longer. As you can see her hernia is big. The surgery will - also - cost 300€.
The puppy Bob, see photo, was found in the middle of trash on the side of the trash container, in Cotovia (Sesimbra - Portugal), moaning... poor baby. Was immediately taken to the vet by a volunteer, where he stood for some time. Apparently was bitten and shaken by a bigger animal. Had a huge bruise on his head and neck. He was left on the trash to die... so cruel... Died some hours later...
We need, urgently, food for our animals and we also have a big bill to pay 2200€, from food that we bought. We need dry food, wet food. We need urgently all kind of food. It's so sad, the feeling of wanting to help them and not be able to...
For example, Billy, Hoban and Alpha need special dry food, otherwise they get sick:

29 october 2016Alfa was found in this condition, in the the middle of the road, without having the strength to be able to divert :( :( it is so weak, so weak that can barely stand ...... This young dog now weighs 20kg, when it should weigh at least 35kg .... it's very sad someone have an animal like this ... is inhumane, is a crime and as such we will pursue crime! Cursed be who left him so! Alpha may have leishmaniasis and tick fever. His liver was very low values, which may be due to lack of power, but have regularized. Let's hope he gain weight, which is fundamental for any treatment. Already took bath to remove part of the crust that have on his body, but still have lots of it! :( :(
