ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED!
Nero 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.
Nero was then moved to a foster home with his litter mates Tango and Pebbles. But Nero was not out of the woods yet. He needed constant care as he only weighed 90 grams. We had to feed him separately and keep him apart from the others as they had nursed all the hair off his tail. But Nero was a little fighter and a born gentleman. He started eating like a tiny little horse and loved playing with his siblings and with the bigger dogs at the foster home.
Nero got adopted by a wonderful family. They had requested to foster him when the pups had just been found but got told that Nero was in Intensive Care as he was so only 90 grams. Nero left us with a glossy coat and a full 7.3kg!
Nero 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.
