Brainy

Brainy was knocked over by a car and brought to Animal Mama by a lady who saw him on the side of the road. He was in a coma and when he finally came around, he was unable to even lift his head up. Brainy’s skull was broken, his temperature was 40.9 degrees, and his skin and fur were completely removed from his shoulder as he was dragged along the road.

It took Brainy two months to learn how to lift his head and sit down. Once he learned to sit, Brainy would lean against the wall for support and edge himself along to get to his food.  After another two months, he was able to walk on his own.

Brainy is just one of many ‘special’ residents at Animal Mama and he will stay with us indefinitely. If the right person can adopt him and give him the time and attention he needs, then we would consider rehoming him. Until then, Brainy will always have a place in our heart and our home.

Hercules

Hercules was tortured and abused, before being left to die at a local pagoda. Animal Mama and the team heard about him and immediately went to rescue him. When we found him, Hercules was badly burned over most of his body, some of his toes were missing, and his testicles and his nose had been cut off. Hercules suffered many other injuries all over his body.  After months and months of care and rehabilitation with us, Hercules is recovering so well.

He is such a brave and affectionate boy and we love spending time him. It is beyond us how an animal like Hercules can endure so much abuse from humans yet still be so friendly, trusting, and full of love for us.

Hercules is just one of many ‘special’ residents at Animal Mama and he will stay with us indefinitely. If the right person can adopt him and give him the time and attention he needs, then we would consider rehoming him. Until then, Hercules will always have a place in our heart and our home.

Panda

Panda was found in a ditch by a Khmer girl. She had a broken hip, was covered in severe mange, and was infected with parvovirus. Panda had to stay in quarantine for 2 months but she recovered from Parvovirus! With physio and lots of love, she started to walk and now we cant stop her!

Panda is just one of many ‘special’ residents at Animal Mama and he will stay with us until we can find her the right home. If the right person can adopt him and give her the time and attention he needs, then we would consider rehoming her. Until then, Panda will always have a home at Animal Mama.

Muriel & Home Of Heroes

Muriel was the first dog who came to stay with us and was the inspiration for the creation of Home of Heroes. After being retired at just 7 years old, Muriel was briefly adopted by a family in Phnom Penh. Sadly, they could not keep her, and she once again faced an uncertain future between euthanasia and adoption.

De-mining dogs like Muriel need specialist care so this combined with her large size made re-homing a real issue. The choice was clear; she had to come to stay with us, and we had to come up with a way to help her and the many other dogs like her. Home of Heroes was born.

In her lifetime of service, Muriel cleared thousands of square kilometres of land by sniffing out and detecting many unexploded ordinances and landmines buried deep in the ground. Muriel served mostly in Cambodia but also travelled around the world working in many different countries.

Now she is 12 years old, Muriel is enjoying her retirement, and we can’t wait to build her the world’s first dedicated retirement home she has been so instrumental in creating.

Lucky Tooth

Lucky Tooth came in with a broken jaw and we had to operate immediately. Her jaw was badly broken and was hanging from her face. Our veterinary surgeon had to completely wire her jaw in place. After four weeks, she recovered really well.

She stayed with us for a few months to make sure she is 100% fit and ready to be adopted into a loving forever home and now we are on the look out for the perfect Mama and Papa for her!

Lucky Tooth is just one of many ‘special’ residents at Animal Mama who have to stay for a long period of time to heal. If you would like to meet Lucky Tooth, please get in touch, she would love to see you!

Lindy

During a trip to Siem Reap, we received a message about a puppy called Lindy, who was found all alone in a schoolyard with a broken back. Julie, the animal rescuer who found Lindy, has been working with other local people to care for her, but she needed specialist care and rehabilitation. We went along to check her health and size her up in case she needed a wheelchair in the future.

It was agreed that Lindy would come to stay at Animal Mama and would have to have a wheelchair if she was to walk freely again. Now she is enjoying daily wlaks and runs with her new wheels!

Lindy is just one of many ‘special’ residents at Animal Mama and she will stay with us indefinitely. If the right person can adopt her and give her the time and attention she needs, then we would consider rehoming her. Until then, Lindy will stay with us and get all the love she deserves.
