Addy, our fluffy female dog


Yesterday, our three toothless cats and our two dogs went for a vet trip thanks to Miyu-san (our new part-time volunteer) who drived them to Koriyama.

Addy and Chacha need to have their teeth brushed everyday and Chacha got a lick guard cone because of a skin issue he has on his inner thigh. He looks quite sorry for himself but he will get used to it. It should be removed in a week! Meanwhile, the volunteers have to brush and clean his fur, give him daily medication and put a cream on his thigh.

We wanted to thank everyone who donated as it is helping us paying vetenerian bills that means keeping our animals healthy.
