PATA is a tiny rescue in Mozambique, Africa. Run entirely by 100% volunteers, we receive no funding nor cover any of our personal expenses. All our work is supported by individual donations and small fundraising efforts such as bake sales, quiz nights, etc. 

Sylvester was found dragging himself on a busy road. At only 8 weeks old this baby was in pain, scared, hungry, dehydrated and x-rays show his one hip is broken. Miraculously his spine seems in tact and he has sensation in his hind legs and tail however after a 10 day course of corticosteroids and crate rest he is still not walking. 

Mozambique is a developing country and doesn't have the medical equipment to assess him further. It's possible he may have some nerve damage or a compression that could be treated either by surgery or physiotherapy. 

Thankfully, we have received offers to adopt this little baby in the US and Canada where he will have access to appropriate treatment and live a long, happy and loved life! So we are looking to crowdraise the funds necessary to cover his transport costs. 

Please donate - no amount is too small! It is critical he receives treatment as soon as possible if he has any hope of regaining the ability to walk. THANK YOU for donating, caring and sharing!
