Please help us build "Hanako's Hospital"...
(in memory of a very special little girl)
Four month old Hanako arrived at the Soi Dog shelter with paralysed limbs & suffering pneumonia, showing signs of having a traumatic injury early in life. She was also very thin, covered in parasites & was going to be a real challenge for Dr Su & her team. After a few weeks of treatment & tender loving care she began to walk & her fighting spirit shone through. However Hanako never managed to conquer her pneumonia & sadly she finally lost her battle. Hanako touched many hearts & will never be forgotten.
The Hanako Memorial Fund is being launched with the express purpose of building what will become "Hanako Hospital".
Although Dr Su & her team did their absolute best to make Hanako's stay at the Soi Dog Clinic as comfortable as possible, Soi Dog's current hospital area is very small and not suited to long term patients like Hanako. Hanako's passing has prompted us to push ahead with raising funds for a badly needed new hospital, to replace the small clinic where Hanako spent so much of her short life.
The dogs which Soi Dog treats have needed this new hospital for some time now, but we have been reluctant to upgrade our current facility, as the building stood on the portion of land that Soi Dog did not own. The recent Land Appeal raised the funds to buy this land & we can now confidently improve/build new facilities, without the threat of losing the land on which it stands. The current hospital cannot cope with the number of treatment cases being dealt with resulting in:
1. A high risk of cross infection owing to lack of segregation.
2. Many dogs being kept in outside kennels which are very hot or very damp and
cold depending on weather.
3. A lot of activity with dogs being sterilized many of which are wild and have to be
anesthetized etc., where very sick dogs are.
4. Conditions that do not promote rapid healing.
The new Hanako Hospital will have separate wards, so dogs can be segregated according to condition. New dogs will be quarantined and puppies will be kept separate from larger dogs. The additional space will allow for much needed x-ray facilities which is not possible in the current hospital.
If you would like to help make "Hanako's Hospital" a reality and make life a little better for those dogs that need extra special care, your donation will go straight towards the construction of our new hospital & the ongoing treatment/running costs. The amount needed to build Hanako's Hospital including "fitting out" will be approximately US$300,000.
