Finca San Miguel de Salinas is looking for a kind-hearted person to offer a ‘forever home’ to
a recently orphaned young dog called Zara.
Zara and her mother Rita were rescued by Finca volunteers after reports that they were
malnourished and living on a chain. Both had marks from the chain embedded in their skin
and were very shy. Luckily, after a few days they were happier and eating from the hands of
the volunteers, allowing themselves to be petted and going for walks. However, Rita took a
turn for the worse and despite picking up for a while and the efforts of the vet passed away.
Zara is now an orphan and needs a loving home. She is just 2 years old, is a quick learner
with a wonderful temperament. If you think you might have a home for Zara and would like
to meet her, please can call Mona on 616792355.
