Karen has rescued many dogs with mange, ranging from mild cases to very severe. In Karen's eyes, every dog deserves to be rescued and given the chance of a normal life.
This is Tommy. I found him in my village, but at the time my own dog, Beki, was very poorly (she subsequently died) and I was unable to take Tommy in. I made a call to Karen and within hours she had hired a car, and she and Mustafa made the long round trip to the village to rescue Tommy. Just look at the before and after pictures.
In recent days, Karen has rescued two dogs with severe mange: (Warning: You may find these pictures upsetting)
|Silver with Karen|
Karen and Mustafa got him into the car much to the amazement of the locals. Gradually, after seeing them treating and caring for him, although they wont touch him, they are now no longer afraid of him.
This little man was found in the middle of the road chasing a grasshopper in the hope of some food, ultra thin with severe mange. Unable to catch him alone, Karen drove at speed to collect Mustafa to help.
Mustafa got a few bites because the dog was so scared and shaking so much they thought he was about to go into shock. Finally they managed to get him and TAG will now do their utmost to get this little man back to health. He was dehydrated and starving, but he is now at home with Karen.
Whenever Karen rescues a dog with mange, she takes it to her home and keeps it there until the vet treatment is complete. There has to be absolutely no sign of mange before the dog will be transferred to the TAG shelter.

Update from Karen on the poor little guy in the last picture (who was given the name Pluto)
