Community Health Outreach: Tuktuk, the 3-legged dog

‘COMMUNITY HEALTH – OUTREACH

WHEN WE FOUND TUKTUK

In Ruaka town, a volunteer noticed a badly emaciated dog with a seemingly severed back leg. It turned out the poor girl was born with a very underdeveloped back leg. The owner was located, and it turned out the dog was called TukTuk (due to having only 3 proper legs).

She had had 10 puppies which were all alive. The owner Robert did not have the money to feed her so she roamed the streets desperately trying to stay alive whilst feeding the puppies. TNR trust immediately supported Robert by donating food for mother and puppies. They also ensured all were vaccinated against RABIES and other illnesses as well as dewormed and fleas removed.

HOW IS TUKTUK DOING NOW?

We visited Tuktuk after nearly a year. She is happy and in good condition now that she is spayed. She mainly stays at home and the neighbours like her because she is a good guard dog at night.​ Robert and family were given a puppy who is now about 5 months and is also in good condition. They feed the dogs and cats as well

Tuktuk, the puppy and their cats are due for rabies vaccinations. They like cats but are worried about them breeding as they have too many already. They are very pleased with Tuktuk being spayed so they don’t have to care for puppies. Robert and family want to continue to look after all the animals well.

CAN YOU HELP ROBERT AND HIS ANIMALS?

We need donations for 3 cat spays, 1 puppy spay (when old enough) and rabies vaccinations. Would you help Robert keep his animals and his family healthy and well?

We appreciate any amount!
