This story must just about take the cake for a cowardly act when Aanifeira General Manager Paulo, arrived at the shelter one morning last week to find a box up against the front door.
Glued to the front of the box was a hand written note stating “Has a broken back leg!”. Paulo quickly open the box to find a small and frightened black and white male kitten with indeed, a broken back leg. After a quick initial examination by Aanifeira vets Claudia and Sara, there was a thought that the leg might have to be amputated but after a more serious analysis and x-ray, they reconsidered and decided this wasn’t necessary.
Baptized Funzo by Paulo, an operation was performed the following day and we are happy to report that he is doing just fine. Funzo is currently in special care and is totally pampered by staff and volunteers. As soon as he is better he will be put up for adoption through Aanifeira’s ‘Adopt Responsibly’ scheme.
