Scar on Life for Scratch on Car
Remember Spots? We posted a picture of him on our blog and Facebook page (http://bit.ly/AdoptSpots), which got him adopted. Until the beginning of July, he had actually been a very happy stray dog with loyal guardians feeding him every day. This good looking, playful and hyperactive dog was suddenly found helpless on the ground, writhing in pain and refusing to eat. The family rushed him to CUPA in the nick of time with just one question - what on earth had gone wrong?
Doctors diagnosed that Spots had been poisoned. This immediately reminded the family of an incident some time ago when playful Spots had accidently scratched a neighbour’s car. Mr. Neighbour, however, refused to see the humorous side and furiously threatened to kill the dog. The guardian family dismissed the episode to be a mere fit of rage - never imagining that anyone would even consider murder for a few scratch marks on some paint.
CUPA spent hours counselling and guiding the seething guardian family. They felt hurt, deceived and most importantly, severe agony at the thought of almost losing a pet. CUPA knows that people who are capable of murdering, can murder again. With this in mind, the family was advised against accusing their neighbour in the absence of concrete proof.
Well, what happened to Spots? Spots had been so well taken care of that he was able to make a complete recovery. Team CUPA heaves a huge sigh of relief now that he is adopted and part of a loving family.
The vaccinated and sterilized stray dogs in your street are the best watchdogs you can ask for. They will alert you when a suspicious character loiters or when a thieving motorist tries to speed away. They are an integral part of the society and need protection in order to protect us.
We would like to acknowledge the guardian family, and thank them for taking timely action which saved Spot’s life. Nobody has the right to ‘interrupt’ another’s life – not even for a few scratches on car paint.
