The transfusion sanguine had to be done urgently for the poor dog. However, at the end of the day in Perpignan, it can be very difficult to get around the city during rush hour. To arrive in time at the veterinary clinic and save the dog, the association did not hesitate to contact the police municipal. Explaining the situation, the police agreed and offered to help transport the dogs to the veterinary clinic.

“We had to be there by 6 p.m., I calculated that in the middle of the rush hour, we would not cross Perpignan in time. So I called the canine brigade of the municipal police of Perpignan, I explained the situation to them. , said Corinne Legrand, member of the association.

Thanks to the flashing lights installed on the vehicle, the police car was able to escape the traffic jams of the city and move quickly. Thus, the dogs arrived in time at the veterinary clinic and were immediately taken care of.

“It is obvious that without the help of the Perpignan dog brigade, we would not have arrived in time. The police were attentive and very professional, but above all they had a big heart” , the association said.

Saiko and Soko, the two blood donor dogs are in great shape, and the injured dog woke up from her operation the next day. Everything ended well thanks to this unexpected rescue and the help of the police.
