Light for the New X-ray Machine
A month ago, the old X-ray machine that operated at our veterinary clinic for so long ceased to work. The machine served hundreds of thousands of animals that were admitted and rehabilitated in our association’s shelter for many years.
The old machine was irreparable, and since it was impossible to provide responsible medical care without a functioning X-ray room, we purchased and committed to a new X-ray room, equipped with a brand new next-generation machine at a cost of 110,000 NIS, which we committed to pay by the middle of 2022. With the help and kindness of the public, we have already raised almost half the amount, which moved us deeply.
Yes, only with your help can we continue to rescue, rehabilitate and support all the abandoned animals in need of proper medical care in our shelter, as well as provide better service to the pets of the public.

A Great Light Sent for the Stray Dogs
Mid-November we got a call from the “Arad Lachi” Association, asking to come pick up and help a female dog along with her four puppies who were captured from the street in poor physical condition. This is not the first time we have been required to take nursing mothers and their puppies from rescue organizations in the far periphery.
Wounded and bruised, dehydrated and exhausted, the mother and her pups reached the gates of our association and thus to the end of their era of suffering. Since then we take the best care of them, providing nutritious food, medical care, and a lot of tender unconditional love.
In addition to rescue and rehabilitation, we are trying to promote a humane action plan that will put an end to the suffering of tens of thousands of stray dogs in the Negev and in Israel in general, and in the periphery especially, though unfortunately without much success so far.
Government ministries seem to be impervious and careless about the great suffering caused to the animals, the environmental damages, or the wildlife going extinct in many regions.
In the last two years, we received approximately 200 abandoned dogs from the Negev to our shelter in Tel Aviv, rehabilitated them and found great families for them.
Despite our meager budget, we will not stop, and will continue to do everything in our power to help these abandoned stray dogs.

A Great Light in the Adopting Homes
As we always say, miracles happen at the right time. A great miracle happened to a sweet dog who was abandoned in the shelter after living with her family for 9 years. Suddenly, she was left alone in the world, frightened and stressed amidst all the barking, struggling to adjust to the new sounds and smells of the kennel. The poor dog refused to eat and did not trust anyone, which is completely understandable considering her unfortunate circumstances.
And here a great miracle happened in our association, to the same dog− Alona Daniel, the talented singer and drummer, called the association and asked to adopt a dog, not young, and not beautiful, but a dog that might be hard to find a home for.
We offered Alona the 9-year-old sweetheart, because who else wants to adopt a 9-year-old dog?! On that day, the light was ignited between them, and with a big hug full of love, with tears of happiness, they both went back to live in their shared forever home.
Here you can see the dog Adele, from the day she was abandoned until today in Alona’s lap:
To our delight, more of such flashes of light are those adoptions that elicit a big smile of happiness. The adoption counselors at the shelter make a match between the dogs and cats to the families seeking to incorporate a pet into their home. These are the first moments of the adopting families in the adoption experience, just before they leave the shelter back to their home with a new family member.
