Mayhew International and Dog Organisation Georgia (DOG) has helped the dogs and pups after they were found living on and around a US marine base in Rustavi, about 45 minutes south of Tbilisi in Georgia.

One of the marines, who had been fostering for DOG, reported the litter of puppies and under Mayhew’s sponsored ‘trap vaccinate neuter release programme (TVNR), the dogs were brought to New Vet Clinic in Tbilisi.

There Mayhew trained vets, Dr Dato and Dr Ana, looked them over, gave vaccinations and parasite treatments, and neutered several animals.

Dr Ana said: “Dato and I are delighted and proud to be helping DOG and Mayhew as it is very important to control the stray population and help animals in need.”
