This is Raz. He is a leader and he is not afraid of anyone, which is also the reason he is handicapped. He was fighting a big dog (triple his size) who bit him and left him paralyzed from the waist down. Raz was rescued by volunteers from the Costa Rican animal shelter Animal love, after they heard him crying from the yard of a family home that had neglected him since he was injured. He was in a very bad condition, having lost half his weight, and he was covered with feces, ticks and fleas.
Since he arrived at Animal love, Raz has thrived, and he now runs around with the help of a dog wheelchair. Raz joins more than 1,200 dogs, cats, sheep, goats, geese, ducks, horses and others at the shelter. Most of them came to the center after being mistreated, wounded, paralyzed or abandoned.
But now Animal love is itself in great need. They had traditionally been financed by the proceeds from their vegan/vegetarian hotel “Lands in love”, which stopped receiving guestsfrom the middle of March 2020 as a result of the Coronavirus world crisis. That means that they have no funds these days to keep the shelter running and their dogs, cats and other animals are at risk of beingput to sleep by the authorities, as there are few other shelters in Costa Rica.
Please help keep these animals alive and thriving. To learn how you can help, visit www.animallove.cr and see options for donating to this wonderful refuge.
