Dr. Steven Mercieca is presenting two kittens for adoption. They were just dewormed and deflead. They are survivors from a 5 kitten litter. 3 others unfortunately did not make it because of a parvovirus infection. For more information please call Joyce from the CSAF [Carers for Stray and Abandoned Felines} tel. 99836157
Gareth, our receptionist had a special helper today. Her name is Maya and she is adorable. She came for a check up but her owner told us her story. Maya was rescued from the hunters who left only male dogs from the litter. She is alive only because they thought she was a male. Then she got adopted very quickly by a present owner who does not care if it is a female or a male.
All animals deserve love.
We had a very busy day today. One of the surgeries was a cesarean. We welcome four puppies that are less than one day old!

Happy Paws Charity Organisation has received help and donations from many of you and it is very nice to see people unite for a great cause.
Thank you very much on the behalf of all the stray cats and dogs and on behalf of the wonderful staff at the Happy Paws Charity Organisation.
Also, special thank you to everyone that shared our story as well as the Media that helped people to become aware of the theft we were victim of.
Happy Paws Clinic will continue its mission to help the strays. So far we have treated over 50,000 animals.
Most of our work goes to help the stray animals; we heal them and neuter them for free and all of this is made possible through the support of our amazing community.
Special thanks to the donors that came to help right away.
Because of them the clinic can continue to perform surgeries.

Please welcome our new students from Royal Veterinary College in London. Alexandra Shiels (right) and Charlotte Plowman (left) are very helpful from day one. We are wishing them an effective practice with us and a nice time in Malta.
To celebrate the arrival of the puppies in the clinic, we have a free check up to win. All you have to do is guess the breed of the puppies. Write below the post on our Facebook page the name of the breed you think that the puppies are. The first person who will give the right answer will win one free check up for his/her one pet to use in October 2017. One person can write only one post and suggest only one breed.
We have a new student at the clinic! Szymon Zyla is a Polish student at the University of Life Sciences in Lublin that is on the Erasmus+ scheme with us for 8 weeks. We hope that it will be a good practical experience for him. We are wishing him all the best (including some nice weather).
This 8 week old kitten spent most of its life on the street, hiding inside cars. It is a miracle she is still alive. So many strays are not so lucky. The small survivor was rescued today by Will Watts, who can not keep her. The kitten is up for adoption.
If anyone would be willing to adopt a cuddly and playful female kitten, please contact Will at 77097787
An 8 weeks old blind stray kitten, found a family today! We had a complicated surgery on a 8 weeks old stray kitten. The eyes were so badly infected by the herpes virus that we had to remove them. Sounds like a very sad story. However, there was a girl that was asking us few days ago if we have any kitten to adopt. When we told her about this one she wanted him straight away. Today Sacha came with her boyfriend Jimmy and they are going to take care of the kitten that they named "Coco".
You would be surprised about how much of a "normal life" blind cats can have. Here you can find some tips how to live with a blind cat: http://www.catster.com/
Yesterday we had an emergency surgery. A female street dog that had a Pyometra which is a life threatening infection in the uterus. Our Dr. Louise Forrest started the surgery just minutes after the dog was brought to the clinic. The situation was very dangerous because if it was not operated on immediately, the dog might not have survived. Right now, the dog is fine and doing well.
The biggest thank you goes to Rosalind Agius, who brought the dog to the clinic. She is running the Association for Abandoned Animals. She found the dog and noticed that something was not right. Rosalind is an angel who saved hundreds of street dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, please check the Association for Abandoned Animals page
We have just neutered 1000 stray cats this year! Half of them could be females. It means that we saved the island from 9000 abandoned kittens in 2018!
