Sunday Flood Update

Here are some recent photos mom took after the floods. Many people now live in tents. They are expected to be rehoused in six months time. These tents are much bigger than the ones in Sao Jose.
This is Dr Bruno. He is Freddy's vet and was Tequila's vet too. He works with Dr Antonio. He volunteered  to help us at the Teresopolis shelter because there was not a vet there Saturday. They have a desperate need for a trained vet there every day. At the moment there are many days without a vet.


Dr Bruno examined every dog and left the place running like a military hospital. All dogs now have papers saying what is wrong with them and which type of treatment they need. There are cases of distemper let us hope they can get it under control because it is highly contagious. Dr Bruno really loves Freddy and he knows Guga because Guga lived in the streets near to him.
Talking of Freddy here he is on his visit to the vets last week. He is a very handsome fellow!

One anonymous private donor has given us the money to pay Dr Bruno to attend the shelter four days a week and co ordinate all the vets. The NGO called Estimacao requested this of us because they were so impressed with Dr Bruno.  He is starting on Friday and will attend the animals Friday, Saurday, Sunday, and Monday every week. He will also attend calls from the vets attending animals on the days when he cannot be there. Dr Bruno will stay several weeks until the situation calms down. Mom will help me choose another stylish blog award soon. Tomorrow Gracie is going to meet Dr Bruno. We will tell you about that tomorrow.

A big thank you to the unknown donor for helping pay for the vet. Both you and he will be someday rewarded for all you have done.

Great to hear that you'll be having a vet on board, for at least half the week. He sounds very efficient! Just the kind you need right now, I imagine.

Wonderful news that Dr. Bruno will working at the shelter four days a week! He sounds like a super vet! THANK YOU to the donor! And thanks to Mom for coordinating.

Freddy looked absolutely adorable on the way to the vet! Was he holding his leash in his mouth?! Good boy, Freddy!
