A Remarkable Recovery

Rudy – The Remarkable Recovery

Remember Rudy, our Christmas rescue? Look at him now!

Rudy was alerted to us late November 2021. He was horribly thin and had lost almost all his fur from Mange. The saddest thing about Rudy’s rescue is that it was believed he had previously had a home, because he was not at all streetwise. It’s unlikely he would have survived much longer.


In Good Hands:

Thanks to our brilliant vet team, Rudy was soon on the road to recovery. He was given medicated baths for the Mange, antibiotics and a staple diet. He was the perfect patient, allowing our vet team to do what they had to in order for him to get better. So much so, none of us at IWCT could quite believe the speed of his recovery! After just two months, his fur had re-grown and he gained weight. He became a smiley, happy dog, enjoying the company of our team and the other resident dogs. He is now neutered and has started training with kennelmate Mark, to prepare him for life in his forever home. 

This would not have been possible without two things:

  1. The generous donations we receive from our loyal supporters
  2. The dedication of our team and their expertise.

Rising Rescue Costs:

It costs £250 to rescue and rehabilitate one dog over a 3 month period. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to help the dogs who are desperately in need. 

Our team of Vets and staff are brilliant and genuinely care for the dogs. Not only are they continuously enhancing their knowledge and skills, the vets also help train student vets. 

Rudy is a super dog with a big heart, who has a lot of love to give his new family. If you are in the Philippines and are considering adopting a dog. Speak to Suzanne who helps manage the adoption process on suzanne.iwct@gmail.com

Thank you.
