This little guy was spotted in the village yesterday by Souleiman, one of our workers at the Sanctuary, while he was at the village shop buying provisions. 4 weeks old, absolutely covered in THICK BLACK TAR. Thank goodness he saw him!
Since our only vehicle was far away on another rescue, Souleiman needed to take a taxi into town (46km-roundtrip) and get this pup to our vet right away.
Our vet slowly cleaned the sticky awful tar off the pup, and thankfully only a bit got through to the skin and irritated/burned it as you can see in the photo of shaved area. He was also covered in parasites and some ticks.
INKY will now need the best nutritious PUPPY FOOD and will need to be vaccinated , frequently wormed and NEUTERED.
At such a young age, all pups are at risk of catching the PARVOVIRUS so we must isolate INKY as best as possible and monitor him closely.
We have recently taken in over 30 abandoned pups but we cannot say no to INKY.
INKY needs your help. Please help us to help this litte boy?
