STORIES

Let me tell you my sad story. I am 2 years old and I am a good boy, but i do not understand why they had to put me in the chain? Why they no longer want me and why they what to throw me in the street?! One day the little boy of this family took me with the chain to a place where there were many, many dogs and said to me that: he would to take care of me , but his parents are no longer agree saying to him to throw me in the street,but he thought to find a solution and not throw me in the street alone and tohungry and others to beat me.
He has brought me to the sanctuary APAM, here I understood that I do not could be absorbed immediately, since there was no space left and my chance was if a dog was adopted and then I would take his place,when I heard that I began to pray a dog to be adopted,but people from Apam still not let me and found solutions for me .They came and talked with the family explained to them do not throw me in the street and to keep me more few days. They came every day and bring me a lot of good food.
After few days in the sanctuary dog was adopted. What happy moment for me it was when I saw them coming and said: “Mucky come with us to the sanctuary …. I went up there in leash, as I wasn’t far away from the shelter now I am free to run, soon I wil be castrated, I have already received the vaccine and then I hope that I will adopted by a family who will take care of me and never again to abandoned me.

I am very smart,half breed of German shepherd,I know to go well on leash,now I live in the kennel with 2 dogs and I am ok with them from the first second when I see them. I do not like to be the boss, I let others, I am felling good now that I do not have to sit in the chain any more, have freedom and lots of food.

Maybe that us too, animals, must suffer first in order to be able then to appreciate the future life that can be better than the one we came in the world, in families for which we were just insignificant objects thrown away at the garbage when we were not useful anymore. So it happened with me too, I was born there where no one was happy about that excepting when they got read of me giving me to a family to guard their property. I believed my life will be a good one, that I will sometimes be the center of attention, especially because I was listening everything I was told, I was so submitted and not disturbing anyone and I hoped I will receive a small comfort from the ones I was serving with believe and devotion. But years passed by and I learned that my place is the one of a guard dog who receives a piece of dry bread not to starve and sometimes the leftovers from their meal, in the rest I didn’t exist , no one was asking me how I was doing or how I was feeling like, if I was satisfied of my life, if I’m hurt or in pain. So it happened that nobody saw the tumor growing and covering my eye and other two more tumors on my body by the time those were already huge and I was looking terrible and then they looked for a way to get read of me, finding the solution to abandon me in the street. So I ended up hidden under a car for nobody to see me and kill me and during the night I was getting out looking for some food leftovers. One day, when I thought my life is about to end, that nobody wanted me anymore, a car came and a nice and young lady came out of it and noticed me and called me to her. I never heard such a sweet voice calling me and I admit I was very afraid to go to her but luckily she insisted and did not leave me there, she took me with her, took me to surgery and then she found this beautiful place for me where any animal would wish to get to. Here at APAM I became a star, everybody is asking me how I feel, are comforting me, I receive so many good things that I never believed that exist. At the beginning I was not answering, I was standing scared in a corner and I was eating stealthy the goods from my plate, but seeing that I’m always patted and cleaned at my eyes I gained confidence, I learned to wag my tail, to bark and to express my opinion and my issues. I could not imagine that after so many years of suffering I can live so loved and happy, to become such an important dog here, and that is why I kindly ask you, in my name and in the name of my other friends here, to help this beautiful team of people who love us and who are making for us a better life, us who were once such underprivileged animals.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]After I was born, the first thing I felt was my mother’s warmth.It was so good: she protected me and fed me , and I couldn’t imagine anything bad happening ever. One day, our master abandoned me and my sister. We didn’t know what was next and kept the hope that nothing bad would find us, that we would return to our mother, and everything would be the same.I hoped in vain: we were put in a car and abandoned. We heard unfamiliar sounds, and everything seemed sinister and scary. Later we understood we were hearing the trains in the station coming and going. My sister began to cry, and I knew I had to be strong. I saw people passing us by without caring, and hoped someone would stop and feel sorry for us and feed us. After a while, a woman showed up, stopped and began petting us and cuddling us. She left and then returned with food. Time passed and I became resigned that we would be left in that station, where that lady came often to feed us and comfort us in our suffering.But one day, my sister became very ill and died, so I was left alone. The lady who used to feed us was telling me she would try to find a home for me. So it came about that one day I saw a nice car stop, in which there was another doggy. I was picked up, and after a long trip I got out of the car and was immediately welcomed by warm people, who offered love and kindness.It was a dream spot, with a little house all of our own. Around us there were so many other doggies running around happily, with not a care in the world. I am still here now, happy and loved. That is why I am asking you to help these people.

The APAM Sanctuary, which gives a home to numerous animals who need care, all saved from situations very much like mine.
