Dosia is an old female dog who was dumped in a sack on the side of the road. She was not able to move and was slowly freezing as in Poland it was a middle of the winter. The people who had found her, immediately called us - we are a local group that is a part of international Viva! Vegetarians' International Voice for Animals organisation. We have 25 dogs and 50 cats under our care, including the ones that are not up for adoption because of health (diabetes, paralysis, cancer) or behavioral issues (aggression, separation anxiety) - we had no choice nor conscience to leave Dosia without help.

Since then Dosia went through very complex surgical repair of pelvic fractures using plates and screws. Dosia is currently living at dog's hotel near Warsaw where she is recovering and getting ready for her next big surgery - this time she needs to have her mammary glands masses surgically removed and biopsied - she is going to undergo ovariohysterectomy.

As Dosia is not a young dog, she had to have a full blood count and chemistry panels done plus a heart scan.

Mammary gland tumors are benign and can be treated successfully with surgery alone, while half are malignant and have the potential for metastasis. 

Please help us save Dosia - she is a little, joyful and very stubborn who went through too much already - let's build a better life for her - TOGETHER!
