I consider myself to be pretty hardened and rational, but seeing this little guy today... Was tough. He's a teenage male pup of very small size, I'd say 3 kilos max. His front paws were severed by a tram ONE WEEK AGO... He was cared for by homeless people until now. Today they finally contacted one of our volunteers, and the volunteer called me about him. I told her to urge the homeless people to rush him to the vet clinic asap. He's been like this for a week...
Fortunately for him, only the right front leg is seriously affected, the bone is sticking out and will need to be amputated. Left front leg is ok, only the paw is partially affected, but he still even has some nails left! So that leg should be ok. He's at the vet now in paid pension and tomorrow he's likely to undergo amputation surgery for his right front leg.... His amputation surgery plus further vet care until he recovers will cost quite a bit... But he is young and tiny and will only lose one leg, and we really think he has his whole life ahead and can live a life worth living on only 3 legs.

Max really would have deserved a better start in life than to be abandoned as a pup in a highly trafficked area and endure so much pain. But this is it, and now we have to pick up the pieces and help him heal, recover and live a life worth living.
Our main focus are sterilizations in order to prevent exactly such dramas... Animals that did not ask to be born to suffer like this. But when they are already born and suffering... we simply cannot close our eyes and ears to their suffering.
