Success Stories

Meet Noah. Noah was found in a secluded area lying next to his dead sister. We thought that he had passed too, until we saw that he was still breathing…
Already cold to the touch, we rushed him to the vet where he was put on an IV. He had a very low heart rate and his intestines were giving up. His stool was black and consisted of leaves and dirt.

His rescuers took him home and needed to force feed him every hour. We weren’t sure if he would make it through the first night, but he did! After a week of going back and forth to the vet to be put on an IV, Noah finally started to pick up. From not being able to get up at all, Noah started to sit, then stand and 2 weeks after his rescue and falling down countless times, he finally started to walk again!

His absolute favorite toy was Igor, the donkey from Winnie the Pooh, which also became his comfort. Noah’s rescuer was pregnant when she rescued him and formed a very unique and special bond with him, being by his side together with her husband 24/7, helping him recover and boy did he RECOVER! Noah stayed with his foster family and now has 12 rescue buddies, a huge garden to play and a comfy bed to sleep in. He also became a big brother when his family welcomed their first son into the world.

Noah’s story even made it to the local newspapers! Noah is one crazy happy dog that is no doubt enjoying the good life here in Curaçao!

    Thank you so very much for the work you are doing to save homeless, neglected dogs on the island. I live in San Diego, California. I was recently in Curacao as the Holland America cruise I was on stopped at the island for a day. We took an excursion that included swimming with the turtles at Playa Piscadao (pretty sure that is where we went), where fishermen clean their catches. This was with Serendiptiy Tours, our guide was Maya. Along the drive, we saw numerous dogs wandering the streets and roads, many malnourished, skinny and with skin conditions. There was one where we swam with the turtles that especially touched me. He was underweight, not neutered, dark tan colored with black markings on his face and ears. He had numerous scars/sores on his legs/back/face and some kind of skin condition on the right side of his face. He was friendly enough to allow us to pet him. The male guide for the swimming seemed to be familiar with him. He said, “This is a sweet one.” I can’t get him out of my thoughts. I would be very willing to pay for someone to track him down, if possible, and rescue him. I think he would be very adoptable. I can make a generous donation to cover costs, and then some, as well as virtually adopt him once in your care. Is this a possibility? Thank you so much for what you are doing. Every success is to be celebrated. Do you have a low-cost or free spay/neuter program? I would like to donate to it, also. It is the only way to reduce the number of unwanted dogs and cats on the island. Thank you so much for your time and attention. I look forward to hearing back from you. Take care.
