Some good news, that poor dog set on fire by the children in Greece has been found and taken to the Veterinary Practice of Mr Trompoukis in Arta Greece, who has kindly donated his time free to aid with helping this dog, though donations are being asked for her treatment and medication, I’ll post the details later on how you can give to help this poor boy.
Below are some of the updates from the veterinary’ Facebook Page
Posted 1st Oct
‘At noon today,three volunteers from our animal society with the help of the local police department managed to rescue the dog which had been brutally burnt in the video. At the moment the dog is undergoing treatment but it’s condition is deemed critical since half it’s body is burnt and it has a high fever.We hope for the best! For those who would like to contribute financially,to cover the cost of the dog’s treatment,the vet’s name is Georgios Trompoukis and his bank account number is Alpha Bank 410002101093705. It would be wise to provide us with your full name and to include the comment” for the maltreated dog”. After the duration of it’s treatment (during which we will keep you posted) we will announce the full financial details. Thank you in advance.’

‘The burned dog is undergoing treatment and his condition is deemed critical but stable. He is receiving antibiotics and his fever has dropped which is encouraging. The first results from the medical tests seem positive, but the full extent of the problem will be revealed tomorrow when further and more detailed tests will be carried out. In the meanwhile we will continue providing him with liquids intravenously and we will keep you posted for any developments.’

The condition of the burned dog (a friend from the U.K. suggested calling him Phoenix) remains critical but steady.We are cleaning the dead tissue and it is estimated that 40%of his body is covered in burns.
We remain optimistic because he is a fighter we are following the advice offered by specialists and we are awaiting approval for his transfer to a specialised clinic.
People have already offered to cover his medical expenses but since many friends want to support him we opered a bank account at Post Bank, GR5002606690000380102436247 .Thank you!’
‘Phoenix’s condition remains critical but stable.However,in spite of the severity of his condition, he is a fighter.He showed greater appetite today.Within the next few days,as soon as we are assured that he can be transferred,he will be transferred to a spesialized center.His new photos will be uploaded tomorrow. We would also like to stress the fact that Mr Trompoukis,the vet who is currently looking after Phoenix,has offered us his services free of charge.Tomorrow we will be announcing the sum that has been collected so far from your donations.We would like to thank you once again for supporting us at this trying hour.’
As you can see Phoenix’s condition is still critical and he still needs lots of help to recover from this ordeal, so please think about this little guy today and send some healing thoughts/prayers his way today and over the coming days.
Phoenix isn’t the only animal suffering out there today, and won’t be the last, man is the only animal that has this sort of propensity for cruelty to animals, however man also has a propensity for compassion and that’s why people like Phoenix’s vet Georgios Trompoukis who give up their time to help.
Today I’m asking anyone who reads this post to look at the following pictures of Phoenix and show the same sort of compassion Georgios Trompoukis shows and when you go out for a drink this weekend, have one less drink and use that money for something good, donate it to an Animal Rescue/Charity, donate it to Phoenix, do something good with it, come on what’s one less beer, when it could help save an animal who’s suffering cruelty because of man . .
I won’t apologise for the photo’s below because if no one see’s the cruelty that man can commit against animal’s, how are we to know that they need our help
The photo’s above were taken by the Veterinary Practice where Phoenix is being treated and they have kindly given me permission to use them.
I hope that seeing them has opened your eyes to some of the extreme cruelty that happens in the world and I hope that you can find it in your hearts to donate a little something to help these animals that suffer at man’s cruel hands.
If you can help please share this post and remind everyone else that some people do care and that they can help to.
Give a Pint up tonight for a suffering Animal, go on do it . . .
