What is a rebel? A man who says no.
It was late in the evening when a truck stopped at the front door of the shelter . Two well dressed men threw a shapeless shadow out of the truck in a rush. ‘’The shadow ‘’ did not move for a while , then very very slowly began to move towards the road in the darkness.
It was done. They had gotten rid of her. Now it was time to disappear before anyone could identify them.
Deep within they knew they had committed a horrible crime.
Alas, too late ! There appearead another man coming right from the front door , waving , calling them , screaming them to stop …
A shelter volunteer had caught them red handed.
Their explanation was simple and cruel ;
The factory was shutting down. They could no longer care for ‘’her ‘’ , the shapeless shadow that they needed get rid of. She was a dog , a dog that they kept in their factory yard for 4 years , tied to a kennel there at the corner of their yard , a guard dog as they call it.
When I first saw Rosalie , curled upon her-self in the corner of her cage , I could not believe my eyes.
What I was contemplating was no longer a dog in the sense we use it ;
She was a naked skeleton of purple color with some fur here and there ;
the rabid smell of mange could be touched in the air around her , the disease had left itchy wounds almost everywhere in her body.
This was the ‘’care’’ the owners at the factory where she was kept gave her for four years.
Four years of pure neglect where her body finally began screaming ‘’ I give up ! ‘’ had ended when the factory moved elsewhere , the owners finally dumped her in this condition .
Today many people in animal rescue in Turkey sees no problem at all with this kind of adoption ; giving a dog to a factory so that they keep him/her in their yard as a guard dog…
Her wounds, her cachectic naked body , the state of her soul , the scared eyes she is seeing the world through screams it is WRONG.
NO DOG DESERVES TO BE NEGLECTED THIS WAY.
Today we need your help ;
We need your help because we MUST change Rosalie’s life ; we need to heal her body but more importantly ; we MUST show her there is another way of living .
A life of freedom and love , a life where she is protected and not owned to be neglected , a life where she is surrounded by care and attention of her family.
Rosalie is now in our clinic ; her health is very fragile.We are performing a full check-up on her systems and dealing with her extreme mange.
Please let us show Rosalie that there are people who care …
People who would stand up for her and say ;
‘’NO ! ‘’ to the crime they have been committing for years.
