We found five severely malnourished and sick puppies living with a poor family in a shack in a coffee farm. The family has several dogs and of course, they keep breeding. We agreed to take the puppies conditional that the family allow us to spay and neuter their adult dogs. They agreed, and in came five little scruffy black and tan pups.

Eli is one of three males in the litter. He had every kind of parasite imaginable, and had a severe case of sarcoptic mange. He has made a stunning recovery in his wonderful foster home and is now healthy and sleek, and ready for adoption.

Eli has a very sweet, friendly, and playful personality. He loves people and gets along great with other dogs. He is very appropriate with them and loves to play with his puppy friends. Eli has never met a person he doesn’t like.

Given their very rough start, his friendliness is nothing short of miraculous. Eli has a tear in one of his ears. It is healed and does not bother him at all.

We are a small organization dedicated to helping dogs and cats in Antigua. We sterilize, rehabilite and find homes, and work with other rescue groups.
