Isabel Spent 8 Years Chained To A Car
When you hang around animal welfare issues you see a lot of upsetting things. Social media pages are full of distressing images and every rescue has pictures of animals for whom our hearts break. It’s hard to know where to begin to help some days. And then on other days, a particular case leaps out and we can’t scroll on by without at least trying to do something.
It happened to me over the weekend when I saw Isabel. Here she is, a prettier picture than the one I first saw. This one doesn’t show her emaciated, skeletal body, but it does show her beauty and gentle soul.
After seeing the first shocking photograph of her, I’ve tried to just make a donation, send all good well wishes her way and move on knowing she’s being well cared for. But, oh I can’t. I cannot leave it at that and I’ve tried, conscious as I am that everyone has so many demands on their attention and finances today. So here I am, blogging and, well not quite begging, but oh bother it, I AM begging for a bit more help. Isabel can’t ask for it herself, and she’s in desperate need. So she needs anyone who is touched by her story to do a little something to help.
Touched by her plight I most certainly have been. Let me tell you about her, not only in the hope that you might find you can help her too with just a little donation, but also to get her story out there, to make her life and suffering visible beyond the confines of the filthy place where she has been chained for the past 8 years.
Isabel has spent most of her life chained in the wreck of a car. She has been used for breeding, over and over. Her world was a few square meters of misery as she was used and abused, starved, given no care or comfort, no love, no decency. When she was rescued she weighed less than 10 kilos, a true ‘bag of bones’ but one with a beating heart, and despite everything she’s been through, a warm and loving soul.
She’s now receiving full veterinary care and is in the loving care of humans who will do everything she needs to recover her health. Although she’s been cruelly neglected, she is showing signs of making a good recovery – she’s fighting to get on and enjoy her life now it’s hers to live.
But money is needed to help the Association who is funding her treatment and care. Isabel is in France and is being helped by Association Cats, the small rescue association who I recently adopted Cosette from.
So please, if you can give even a small amount, it will greatly help Isabel have everything she so deserves. Thank you, for reading and caring.
