Egyptian Animal Friends Society: Cairo, Egypt




Meet Unter. Unter has lost muscle function in his hind limbs and thus can’t walk properly and spends most days sitting in his own excrement. When I met Unter, my heart melted, as he is absolutely adorable and  very affectionate. Since medical care for animals is very precarious and the likelihood of obtaining a wheelchair for any animal in Egypt is highly unlikely,  my husband, Roberto and I decided to create a wheelchair out of PVC piping. This is the video of Unter’s first steps of freedom. The wheelchair didn’t work perfectly and needed to be adjusted, but even if he was able to spend a few moments a day free, it’s worth it!
