This campaign is to raise funds to help Strelka (Strelka English translation is Arrow) Hortaya Borzaya/Greyhound to come to America. This poor 4-5 year old female hound is severely emaciated.
Strelka lost her owner and is now living with her deceased owner's friend/relative who can't even afford to feed her. The current "caregiver" keeps Strelka on a heavy metal chain outside and ones a day lets this girl wander around the village to provide for herself - she begs the locals for food and searches through garbage.
Strelka has been a brood mom, she has calm demeanor, very sweet, and tender with people, children, cats, other dogs and even chickens. SHE NEEDS our help to get out of her current situation ASAP. I ran out of my personal "rescuing funds" and need your help.
To bring a large dog to the US by cargo is expensive-- It costs between $1,400 - $1,500.
This is the time of year for giving, who better to help than an innocent animal whose totally helpless without our aid.
Thank you so much for your attention in this matter and for any contribution you can give. Even if the contribution you can offer is sharing this post, I will be grateful for your help in spreading the word to others that can potentially donate.
PS I will update everybody on the progress of rescuing this hound and share all the information about her personality and health conditions as soon as we get her.
Sincerely, Irina Stasiw
