This starving dog named Winnie was finally found after roaming around for days with a plastic jar stuck to her head on the island of Guam. She wasn’t able to eat or drink anything and was malnourished and traumatized by the experience. When help arrived, the poor girl was so scared and was very hesitant to let anyone help her. After many failed attempts, her rescuers were able to successfully get close enough to gently trap her with a net.

The rescue team brought Winnie to a quiet and safe place to remove the jar from her head. Although it was not easy, the team successfully maneuvered the jar and helped Winnie free her head. She was so relieved to be able to breathe properly again and regain full movement of her body. Winnie even did a celebratory lap around the space to show her excitement and gratitude.

Since arriving at the rescue, Winnie has made tons of friends with the other Boonie dogs and fits right in with the family. The rescue says that she will be available for adoption as soon as she makes a full recovery and regains her strength.

Guam is a US territory south of Japan, east of the Philippines, and home to stray dogs known as “boonie dogs”. Since there is currently no TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program on the island (in progress), it is currently home to over 60,000 pets! There are not enough homes on the island to foster or adopt all the pets of Guam, so the Boonie Flight Project has set up foster programs to find loving homes off-island for these dogs in need.

Boonie Flight Project is located in Guam and is dedicated to finding foster homes for the super mutts of Guam. There is currently no TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program on the island, meaning that the stray dog population is quickly growing. You can donate here.
