Maggie

Most of you probably remember our Maggie-moo from her adorable big-eared photos and health updates from her battle with cancer. She has certainly won the hearts of her fans with those unforgettable brown puppy eyes! While Maggie has overcome the first battle of surgery to remove the cancerous tumors from body, her journey is not yet over.

The type of cancer she has is extremely aggressive, and she has the potential to relapse at any time. As a result, she needs to visit her oncologist every 2 months for the first year, then every 3 months for the second year before being declared cancer-free. Each of these visits includes extensive testing to make sure there are no signs of relapse. The cost, per visit, for just a routine check can range from 15000 to 17000 czk. This is the bill we will receive for her every couple of months for the next two years, in the case she remains cancer-free.

Maggie has already had her first post-op check-ups. She has no signs of cancer, so we’d say that’s a good first step! ❤ She is seeing the top oncologist in the country, so we know she is in good hands with the medical team most equipped to help her navigate her recovery. ❤

Maggie is an amazing dog. ❤ She has been through a lot in her life and has come a long way to be with us. Through everything she has been so resilient, always smiling and being so loving to everyone she meets. She has a beautiful soul, and we will never give up on her. She deserves every chance to fight so one day she can retire in her very own forever home with a family who loves her as much as we do. ❤

Chewie

Chewie was rescued from Ukraine and he came to us shortly after the war started, he came with Hope, Victory and Lucky.

This little charming man is very cuddly and really wants human attention ❤ Chewie came with no tail, we have no information about his past, the only thing we know now is that he is aggressively chasing his imaginary tail especially during food time. Our vet thinks it is an impulsive behavior disorder, also known as OCD. This is the reason why he can´t be with another dog, because whenever he starts to chase his tail the other dogs would attack him for it.

Apart from his OCD he is a brilliant dog ❤ ️Chewie is great with the dogs here and he slowly starts to get better. He chases his tail far less than he used to and he is one of the the few dogs that really enjoys it here. He loves being part of our sanctuary.

Minnie

Minnie has never had it good in her life, she has had a really bad past. In December 2021 she was rescued from a terribly awful shelter in Ukraine, where a woman collected donations and at the same time let the dogs inside starve to death. Minnie was rescued and brought to another shelter in Ukraine. When the war started all dogs from this shelter were evacuated and so Minnie found her way to us.

When she came she was just skin and bones, she was literally a walking skeleton. We took really good care of Minnie, checked blood for cancer or other nasties, gave her a quiet space in our kitchen and fed her every two hours to she gains weight. After five weeks with us this “Minnie”-wolf has gained 2.2 kilos. We hope that thanks to time and proper care she will put on more weight and also start enjoying life.

Kitty

Kitty’s history with Cool Critters started when we received an unexpected call from a local vet – someone had taken a cat to be euthanized. Not because she was sick, just because she would cry in the early morning, and the people decided their sleep was more important than this kitty’s life. When Jaq went to pick kitty up, she found out the whole story: It turns out that the lady only had the cat for a month, she had taken the kitty when her sister was admitted to long term hospitalisation. Kitty was clearly just grieving, and instead of receiving the support she needed in this difficult time she was sentenced to death. So, of course we decided to take her! ❤️

We tried to find foster home for Kitty but we could not find the right person for her. Meanwhile Kitty has taken over the kitchen where she is happy to get strokes and pets from everyone who visits ❤️ She doesn’t even mind dogs 🙂 All Kitty really needs is love ❤️

Victory

Victory was rescued from the war zone, from Dnipro in Ukraine. Then she was transported to Poland and from there she traveled to us. When she arrived this poor girl didn’t want to eat or drink, she just wanted to sleep, she was completely devastated and exhausted.

It was so bad that we even began to consider that the most merciful thing to do would be to put her to sleep. But then, after five days of hospitalization, she finally began to eat and from that moment on her strength increased day by day.

Now she is finally enjoying life. However, she still needs medication due to high pressure in her eye and regular visits to an eye specialist.
