Shot dog and cat are now recovering well
A stray dog and cat found riddled with lead pellets two weeks ago, are recovering well and have found new homes.
Earlier this month, one-year-old female chocolate pointer Moira, neutered by Happy Paws Clinic, was found shot at Ħal Farruġ. More than 50 lead pellets were found in her face and neck.
Just a week earlier, a six-year-old cat, renamed Disco, was found abandoned with 150 lead pellets all over its body, including his neck and head.
While the cat is recovering from its injuries, the dog is regaining her good spirits and confidence through her new owners.
Adopted by Charlot Cauchi and Adrian Cassar from Żejtun, Moira will be put on the Happy Paws adoption scheme, so that her adopters can receive free medical advice and treatment.
Happy Paws, a charity for strays, relies on donations and its shop to run the clinic, which is situated at 41, Cross Road, Marsa. For information call 2122 7127 or go to www.happypaws.org.mt.
