20170604 Pebbles 2Pebbles was found in a drain pipe at Rosslyn Lonetree Estate together with his 2 siblings without any mother in sigh. They were only about 1 month old and in a horrible condition.

Pebbles had to stay at the vet a little while longer while his litter mates Tango and Nero went to a foster home. He was very sick and had to have daily antibiotics to battle his hookworm. At one point we thought he wouldn’t make it, but he escaped death by an inch and was moved to the same foster home as Tango and Nero.

They started eating like tiny little horses and loved playing with each other and with the bigger dogs at the foster home.

Eventually Pebbles was strong enough to go to his new home and was adopted by a family in Athi River, who appropriately renamed him “Dobby”! TNR Trust did a home visit and he is all happy and settled with his new family.

Pebbles was lucky. His story could not have had such a happy ending. He and his siblings could have just been washed away. The main aim of TNR Trust is to prevent such a thing from happening.

We have 3 pillars: education, vaccination and sterilization. We try to educate the locals of the importance to sterilize and vaccinate their dog. Sterilization will help to reduce the “wandering” urge of the dog to search for a mate. It also reduces the amount of litters being born as often people do not know what to do with the extra dogs and cannot afford to feed them. Vaccination will help improve the overall health of the dog and, as our motto says, COMMUNITY HEALTH THROUGH ANIMAL WELFARE. A healthy dog means that its owner(s) are not exposed to rabies, worms or other diseases.
