Some of the most heartbreaking stories are those that involve animals which have been mistreated or neglected by their owners. These hapless animals can suffer in agony for want of proper nutritional, grooming and medical care. The owners of Urban Primitive in Fergus, Ontario recently came to the rescue of three neglected llamas and is asking the public to help provide for their care in the coming winter months.
When found, the three llamas—known as Wilhelmina, Zakira and Angelica—were severely undernourished and in extreme need of medical attention. After a long period of neglect, they were inundated with mites and other parasites which had leached nutrients from them. They experienced severe hair loss and were in such a poor state that they could walk, but with a lot of discomfort. The owners adopted these helpless animals, provided immediate veterinary medical care and have found temporary housing for them until they locate to their new home in the spring. This costs of caring for the three llamas in the coming winter will likely top $8,000.
To raise these funds which will be used for board, calorie rich foods, veterinary care, medicines and winter coats, and to raise awareness about the dangers of animal hoarding, Urban Primitive has sponsored a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo. In return for your generous support, you may receive valuable perks, such as 5 to 25% membership cards for tattooing sessions at Urban Primitive.
