Animal Defenders Indonesia, our #MonthlyMojo shelter for April, takes on difficult abuse cases every day, helping cats and dogs that are in desperate need of special care. Slash was one such dog. He was brought to the rescue by good Samaritans, who had found him neglected and starving. There wasn't enough information to try and prosecute anyone for Slash's abuse. But Animal Defenders brought their veterinarians and volunteers together to begin a special feeding program that helped Slash slowly gain weight.
It was a success! He recovered well, and is a very sweet dog who loves the other dogs. Animal Defenders thinks of him as family – at least until they can find him a forever family of his own!
