Houston Doctor Saves Dogs Across The Globe

Dogs Ethiopia

Dr. Anteneh Roba, a Houston trauma care doctor, not only rescues humans, but he saves the lives of dogs also. Roba, who was born in Ethiopia, saves “cave dogs” in Ethiopia that would otherwise die.

The Gido Washa cave in Ethiopia has been used as a place to abandon unwanted dogs. Each month, many dogs have died in the cave until July when the Homeless Protection Society stepped in to save the last four dogs in the cave.

But no one wanted to adopt the four rescued dogs, who had been named Haley, Tommy, Maria, and Hannah. Roba, who funded the rescue, then paid to bring the four dogs to Houston to look for new homes.

Roba wants to bring awareness to animal welfare, both in the U.S. and globally. He said, “That’s what I’m doing - that’s my responsibility. Someone has to take care of the animals. They have no voice. We’re their voice.”

The cave has since been sealed, and Roba is trying to raise money for the Homeless Animal Protection Society to spay and neuter the animals of Ethiopia.

Haley, Tommy, Maria and Hannah have been put up for adoption. In the meantime, these four are the newest guests at a luxury pet hotel in the Houston area.

    What a contrast to the vet from Tennessee. Good job, Dr Roba. Thank you for going above and beyond for these animals. The doggers are quite beautiful and should make wonderful additions for some very lucky families.

    I am so glad I get to train these dogs for adoption and I can say that all involved with these dogs are God sends. I have met them all personally and if you have not met them then any response given that is negative should be taken back. They are angels. I am proud to know them. I am even more proud to work with these dogs. Annasheril
