All your donations go directly to provide the rescue, rehabilitation and continuing care of dogs and cats suffering on the streets here in Dumaguete. Without your continued support, dogs like Ernie here would have died alone, scared and in pain, with no one even knowing.
Ernie was rescued from drowning in a canal after he had stumbled in and couldn't get out. A passerby pulled him out, covered him with a sack and called us straight away. He's very old, almost totally blind and had a completely mangled back leg. Its likely he had been hit by a car and fell into the canal by the side of the road.
We brought him to the Sanctuary, gave him the treatment he needed to recover and found a foster for him - Eren - who has adopted 2 DAS dogs already. Ernie absolutely thrived in Eren's home and so she officially adopted him.
Please consider adopting a senior dog - they don't need a lot of exercise - just a couple of short walks a day, a comfy bed, good food and lots of love. Please contact us if you can make room in your home for an old dog in his / her remaining years.
