Ulet Bulu Request For Help

Scrool for English Version

Ulet Bulu, saya namakan begitu karena dia seperti bulu-bulu jalan saking gemuknya,dia puppy kepunyaan tetangga rumah. Sering banget main ke rumah. Sabtu pagi, 1 Maret 2015, Ulet Bulu dilaporkan anak tetangga tertabrak motor, kulihat dua kaki belakangnya tidak bisa menopang,dan beberapa lecet di paha dalam.Kata mereka Ulet Bulu mengalami kecelakaan tanggal 28 Februari 2015.

Siangnya saya menelpon dokter hewan terdekat untuk datang mengecek kondisi Ulet Bulu, sementara hanya bisa dikasih obat pereda nyeri dan vitamin karena lokasi kami di pelosok Klaten dan jauh dari klinik. Ulet Bulu diduga mengalami patah tulang. Si pemilik tidak terlihat mau ikut mengobati, sekedar diajari meminumkan obat juga tidak mau. Ternyata dia tidak mau lagi mengurus Ulet Bulu karena sudah cacat, dan malahan mbak yang membantu di rumahku disuruh mengambil Ulet Bulu. Saya sempat kebingungan karena saat ini saya sedang merawat Pakde yang sakit, selain merawat anak saya dan anjing-anjing saya di rumah, lagipula saya tidak memiliki kendaraan untuk membawa Ulet Bulu ke Jogja.

Akhinya, atas bantuan AFJ, Ulet Bulu bisa dibawa ke Klinik Hewan Jogja (KHJ) untuk mendapat penanganan lebih baik. Setelah dirontgen, terlihat ada patahan di kaki kanan yang membelah tulang paha,dan retak di kaki kiri dekat persendian lutut.

Siang tanggal 8 Maret, operasi sudah dilakukan di KHJ ditangani drh. Agung. Ternyata callus tulang sudah terbentuk dan tidak bisa dipasang pen, tapi dipasang kawat penguat.Saat ini Ulet Bulu masih dirawat inap di KHJ sampai kondisinya stabil dan bisa dirawat jalan di rumah saya.

Drh. Agung dan KHJ memberikan kelonggaran dan keringanan pembayaran, namun masih terasa sangat berat bagi saya untuk dapat melunasinya sendiri. Karena itu saya memohon kemurahan hati dari teman-teman untuk membantu pelunasan biaya operasi dan pengobatan Ulet Bulu. \
Pemeriksaaan dan pengobatan pra operasi di klinik sudah dibayar oleh AFJ.
Teman-teman yang ingin membantu Ulet Bulu bisa berdonasi ke AFJ, caranya di sini:http://animalfriendsjogja.org/page/donation.php#howtodonate

Terimakasih banyak sebelumnya

“I named him Ulet Bulu (Hairy Caterpillar) because he looks like a chubby walking fur-ball. Ulet Bulu belonged to my neighbour. Ulet Bulu often comes to our house to play and eat. On Saturday morning, March 1st 2015, some children reported that Ulet Bulu’d been hit by a motorcycle. I saw both of his back leg couldn’t support his body and there’re several blisters in his inner thigh. They said that the accident happened on 28th February 2015.

In my neighbourhood, many people have dogs as pets but they just let the dogs roam around the neighbour. They rarely feed their dogs. So it’s almost impossible to see them bringing their dogs to vet when their dogs are ill! The children in my neighbourhood often come to me for help if their dogs are ill.

At noon, that Saturday, I called the nearest Vet in my place to come and check Ulet Bulu’s condition. He gave Ulet Bulu analgesic and vitamins because our place is located in a quite remote area in Klaten and far away from animal clinic. He diagnosed that there’s some bone fractures, but there was nothing else he could do because Ulet Bulu would need further treatment. The ‘owner’ didn’t care at all about Ulet Bulu’s condition. Not even willing to be taught how to gave the medicine to this poor puppy. In fact, they don’t want to take care of him anymore because now Ulet Bulu’s handicapped! They ‘gave away’ Ulet Bulu to our housemaid who loves dogs but however she’s not capable of caring for one. I was so confused because right now I’m taking care of my sick uncle who needs intensive care, my daughter, and the dogs at my house, beside the limited time, I also don’t have vehicle to take Ulet Bulu to Jogja for further treatment.

Finally, AFJ helped us to take Ulet Bulu to Klinik Hewan Jogja (KHJ) to get a better treatment. The x-ray result showed that there were fractures on the right leg that cleave the thigh bone and also at the left leg near to its joint.
At noon on 8 of March, a surgery to fix the broken bone was conducted by Vet Agung at KHJ. The plan was to perform internal fixation utilizing plates. However, he found out that the bone callus was already formed, so the option left was to fix the bone with wire. Now, Ulet Bulu is still getting an inpatient care at KHJ until he’s stable and can be taken care at my house.

Vet Agung and KHJ gave us a lenience and relief payment, but still it’s hard for me to pay it off by myself. So I’m asking for your generosity to help me out for the surgery and medical expenses for Ulet Bulu. I will take care of Ulet Bulu at my home during his recovery period. It may take months for him to recover.

Thank God, the cost of pre-surgery examination and medication at the clinic has been paid off.
I can’t thank enough to all of you who care about Ulet Bulu.
If you want to help Ulet Bulu please send your donation via AFJ. Here’s how:

Thank you so much for your help.”

Helping Grandmas’ Cats #HelpOthersHelpAnimals.

Please scroll down for English version smile emoticon

Kami berjumpa dengan dua nenek yang penyayang di Bausasran yang mendedikasikan usia senja mereka bagi kucing-kucing yang tak diinginkan. Cinta yang besar mereka punya, tapi sayangnya kucing-kucing yang sakit perlu lebih dari itu untuk sembuh.

Sementara ini, kucing-kucing duo simbah sudah diberikan obat cacing, yang sakit mata sudah diperiksa dan diberikan pengobatanoleh drh. Andre Lisnawan. Kami masih mencoba mendapatkan ijin untuk mengadakan sterilisasi bagi kucing-kucing di rumah itu. Saat ini sudah ada belasan kucing, dan mereka bisa berlipat ganda sangat cepat jika tidak dicegah.

Terimakasih untuk Anda yang terus mendukung kami; karena Andalah makin banyak satwa bisa terbantu, dan beban sesama yang peduli satwa namun kurang mampu dapat diringankan. Semoga segera duo simbah akan memberikan persetujuan untuk sterilisasi. Anda bisa membantu mensponsori sterilisasi bagi kucing-kucing simbah. Caranya bisa dibaca di sini ya: http://animalfriendsjogja.org/page/donation.php#howtodonate
========
We came across these two lovely grandmas in Bausasran who dedicate the dusk of their days for unwanted kitties. Abundant love is what they have, but unfortunately sick cats need more than love to heal. In the meantime, all cats have been dewormed, the ones with eye problems have been checked by Vet Andre Lisnawan and received medications.
We’re still trying to get permission from the grandmas to spay and neuter their cats. There are tens of cats already, and they can multiply very quickly, causing overpopulation at the grandmas’ house. We thank you, our supporters; because of you we can help more animals in need as well as lessen the burden of others who care about animals. Hopefully, the sweet grandmas will finally agree to sterilize the cats. You can help by sponsoring the sterilization cost for grandmas’ cats.

Rubine’s Story – From Hell in a Cage to Heaven at Home…

Rubine’s Diary… from hell to heaven…

Rubine started life in a living hell, stuck in a small cat cage with her mum and 3 siblings from birth.

Never having the space to run or stretch or be like a normal dog, her legs were bent and she didn’t know how to walk properly.

Rubine's  Hell Cage

Then one day, after many visits to Rubine’s owner failed to encourage him to provide the dogs with more humane living conditions, AFJ was able to free Rubine and his remaining siblings Ruchie and Rufo.  (Her mum and another sibling had been sold.)

For the very first time, Rubine found out what it was like to live a life free of the cage.

IMG-20140802-WA0002 IMG-20140802-WA0000

 

For the next three months Rubine left behind her life behind bars and began adjusting to a normal happy life at the dog sanctuary, waiting for the right person to come and love her.

10801826_759656690772144_4707643403299560260_n 10805815_759656590772154_1966341697271335437_n

She learned to run and play, how to eat and pee and poop  in the way a dog should be able too, not squashed up and on top of the other dogs, her life experience thus far.

Then one day AFJ got an email from Ella.  She’d read about Rubine’s life in a cage and fallen in love with Rubine’s photo.  Ella and her husband Patrick decided then and there that Rubine was the one to complete their family.  Ella and Patrick already have a small son  Nael and they wanted him to grow up with a four legged friend just as Ella had when she was a girl.  She didn’t mind that Rubine was not a special breed and her legs were bent.  She didn’t want to buy a dog from a breeder, she wanted to support a dog that needed rescuing and Rubine’s eyes called out to her as she read her story on the AFJ fb site so she’d filled in the adoption form and sent it in.

10687010_759656480772165_7196775586815510937_n

After the AFJ adoption team had read her application, Ella was cleared to the next stage of the process – a home visit from the AFJ Adoption Team.    AFJ visited Ella, Patrick and Nael late the next evening and they turned out to be the most perfect candidates for Rubine’s new family.  They live in quiet neighbourhood where others also have dogs and the landlord and neighbours are dog friendly.  The house is also perfect as they have a small fenced yard and carport, the perfect size for a small dog like Rubine to play in. They plan to live in Jogja permanently but if in the future things change and they have to move, then just like Nael, Rubine will come along.  No way would they leave him behind – a dog is part of the family.  They also agreed to make sure that Rubine has regular vaccinations and worm and flea treatment,  and they will feed Rubine the way she likes to be fed at the AFJ sanctuary or slowly transition her to dog food when she’s ready.

So with all the boxes ticked, it was agreed that Ella, Patrick and Nael could come and meet Rubine for the first time.  Sometimes a photo is different from the real deal so they needed to come and meet Rubine to see if they were meant to be a family or perhaps another dog would suit them better.

AFJ location is kept secret and is not open to the public to protect the animals there and also to prevent people dumping unwanted pets so Ella and Patrick had to sign a secrecy agreement before the visit.  They had already transferred the fee to cover the spaying operation and vaccinations that Rubine had already had, then on the 17th of November, they arrived at the sanctuary.  Nael was a little nervous at first seeing so many dogs barking and jumping around.  AFJ’s dogs are not in cages but large enclosures where they can run free but are still safe inside a boundary fence.

Rubine was ready at the gate with Anun her carer but she was very nervous about being on a leash.  She’d done a little behavioural training with Sophie one of our volunteers, but she didn’t really get the idea that the leash meant freedom, she was still traumatized by her cage experience and she still needed some encouragement to walk.

When Ella saw Rubine it was love at first sight.  From the moment she held her, Ruben nestled into her arms and put her head under Ella’s chin as if to say, she’s my new mum, I think I will stay here.  And so she did.  Ella spent some time learning how to encourage Rubine to walk by giving her treats and pats whenever she took a step, but she’ll need some more training at home.

Nael was a bit apprehensive but by the end of the visit, Rubine was eating snacks out of Nael’s hand. 

Then they took Rubine for a quick walk to say goodbye to her brother Rufo, and his house mates Pickles and Celine and the cats.

Adopted_Dog_Nov14_RubineElla12

Patrick was really happy to see Nael, Ella and Rubine happy together and he also encouraged Rubine to walk and play with Nael but he also had other ideas.  You see, when they arrived, the other dogs all came to the front and Patrick fell in love with John.  He asked Ella, how about taking John too?? Hmm, maybe later Ya??

Adopted_Dog_Nov14_RubineElla10

And so it was time for the happy family to go home.  Ella had brought her adoption form and transferred the subsidy fee for vaccines and spaying.  Then it was time to jump into the car.

Rubine joined Nael and Ella in the back while Patrick drove them to Rubine’s new home.  Who knows, after a few months, John may get to see Rubine again…

See you in a month for a homevisit Rubine…

Update:

23/11/14

Rubine is adjusting so well in her new home.   For the first few days at her new home, Rubine didn’t eat much of the food Ella cooked so she decided to try her on dry dog food for puppies, and it turned out she liked it. So since then she’s been eating dog food.   Rubine and Nael are best of friends now.  It took some time for Rubine to want to walk on the grass outside, she only wanted to be inside, but now she is happy playing outside and in.  Nael takes her for walks and they always play together.

HV Rubine 20150102180802 (1)

Often Nael just sits near Rubine when she eats, accompanying her.   So cute.   When Nael wakes up and comes out of the bedroom, the first thing he does is look for Rubine and to play with her. One day, Nael suddenly cried after his nap and Rubine came for him and rolled over on the floor, which made Nael instantly laugh.  Ella and Patrick are so glad they get along very well.   But they still haven’t managed to make her like the leash.   Whenever Ella or Patrick come to her with the leash, she lies down and won’t move.   So for now she walks without a leash, just to introduce her to the activity of walking together with the family.   Fortunately she stays close and they only walk around the housing estate where there is little traffic, but it will still be safer if she takes to the leash.  For now they will keep on trying.

Update 23/11/14

Here’s an update from Rubines adopter Ella:

“ I hope I don’t send you too many emails, but I’m excited to tell you Rubine’s latest update.  I was so happy when Rubine finally wanted to play voluntarily in the yard! She really enjoyed her time there, especially when she met a frog and got very excited, (don’t worry, we’ve made sure that the frog was not dangerous). Now she’s brave enough to go outside alone, even sometimes enjoying her time just laying down there. And she’s more playful now! I was afraid she was stressed because she was so calm as AFJ said she was playful.   Nael is so into her right now, he always wants to play with her, which makes us happy.   Rubine is so nice and sweet, she never chews anything else except the big bone I gave her since the first time, and now she started to go potty on the yard! I couldn’t be happier to have Rubine as a family member.”

IMG_91370712955547

Update 02/01/15

On 2 January, an AFJ volunteer from the Adoption Team went to visit Rubine to see how she’s doing with her new family.  She was at the door with her new best friend Nael.  They are the closest friends and it shows in the way they interact.  Rubine was happy and playful and looked right at home with the family.  She still doesn’t want to walk with a leash but she walks nicely alongside Nael and Ella and Patrick around the neighbourhood.
