I don't know how he can't see this dog is in excruciating pain!! I'm going to try something; I call it Future Praising. God, we want to PRAISE you for saving 'Hero'!! You changed this man's mind just in the nick of time and saved him from dying. Not only that but you put him with a family who sincerely loves Hero and will take care of him forever. Thank you, God, so much for Hero's Miracle! In Jesus name, Amen!

You all have the power to make this more than just a C2NN News Story and contact the Brazilian SPCA with pleas and reprimands. A sixty second Google check will take you to Brazilian contacts immediately. This is the essence of grass roots effort.....we saved a dog with its mouth taped shut. This one can be saved too....but members here need to do more than just note the story.

From the article:

For six days, those who have raised funds have been pleading with this man to take the dog to a specialist. According to those who organized the fundraising, for six days, he has refused.

On Tuesday, the following was posted on the Facebook page created for this dog about the current situation:

We have come to a point, where there is no getting through to this Rescuer who has, "Davi". His name is, "Wilson Martins Coutinho". He needs to be Reported to an International Animal Welfare Organization. Could you please help me get the word out? We have everything booked for "Davi" to arrive at a Vet Hospital with a renound Doctor/ Surgeon. We even had the Surgeon contact, "Wilson" directly to bring "Davi" in.

All expenses would be paid for by Sponsors, and the Doctor's there, Vet Staff, as well as "Wilson" is well aware of this. But "Wilson" still won't take "Davi" there. Today is day 6 of pleading with him! Please! Can you help us? Email:

International Animal Welfare Organizations:
Humane Society International
WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals)

Bloody hell! No point in rescuing a dog if you're not going to do the right thing by the poor creature! This is not rescue, it's torture. Give the dog up for treatment, you wanker!

If this guy Wilson, who found Davi, refuses to take him to the Specialist, then, someone needs to take Davi, from Wilson, and get him to the Vet's for the help he needs...This makes no sense, why this guy Wilson, who even after being told, that he wouldn't have to pay anything, still won't take the poor Dog...I hope God listens to Barbs prayer to change this guy's mind, if not, someone needs to go and take Davi from Wilson, and get him the help he needs...This is terrible...

Thanks for the forward Michele. I have been on Davi's FaceBook page for weeks now as well as donating to his medical needs. It appears that ALL the money that was donated to help Davi..the so-called resucer bought a farm with the donations as well as for weeks now he has been lieing about getting Davi any medical treatment. I feel totaly helpless about not being able to help this angel.
I have included an update on Davi below. Please go to his FaceBook page and read more details:

Why is it that there haven't been any new Lab's (to check Davi's Anemia Level, Blood Chemistry, and Metabolic Panel) for 3 weeks? Also, why no Blood Transfusion, when it's apparent that he was in Severe Need of one 3 weeks ago? How does this make any sense?????

From Davi's FaceBook page:
Where has ALL of "Davi's" Sponsorship Money gone? Obviously not to Davi? Now, Wilson is Publicly celebrating the Purchase of his new farm in Brazil! We were told he raised thousands of dollars in Donation's for "Davi" alone. Apparently, he doesn't or never cared about Davi. He is truly a Master Manipulator to the Brazilian Residen't in his Community......for all he's gotten away with.

Below are pictures of his new farm. He not only throws this in our Faces, but also expects that the Brazilian Residen'ts on his Friend's list are so Stupid, that they won't even question it. Unbelievable! So "Davi" continues to Suffer Daily, as Wilson Celebrates his Thousands of Dollars and Brand new farm!

Why hasn't the law seized control of this man's assets for
stealing public monies under false pretenses, thrown his
bastard ass in jail and rescued this poor dog that does not
belong to him, making tis situation even more outrageous?
Are there any laws left on the books, anywhere is this world
that do any damn thing except protect & reward criminal behavior
and victimize the already traumatized (or dead) victims?

I wrote e-mails to the Humane Society International Latin America and to PETA asking them to step in to help little Davi. It is animal abuse to deny any animal medical care when they need it so badly!!

I hope we get an update soon saying Mr. Coutinho has allowed Davi to get the surgery he needs!!

Given that this Wilson person is not the owner of Davi, he should have any right to keep Davi or prevent Davi being taken to vet for getting the urgent treatment needed.

Why haven't animal welfare taken action !!

Wilson you suck

Davi, you are not lone, there are people whom care about you, taking action on your behalf,

This is a horrible wound, and I hope that this poor dog will receive the care he needs. Some of the posts following the article state quite vehemently that he is in fact receiving veterinary care and the wound has improved-- I hope this is the truth; impossible to know just from reading.

Sunday October 7, 2012, 2:35 pm
This is so sad, why this person will not take Davi to the vet is beyond reasoning especially when the necessary funds have been collected, so he will not even have to pay for any treatment, I do hope he changes his mind before it is to late. Thanks Diane

Most wounds like this need to be addressed within 12 hours,he will have to be healed from inside to out.Yes it can be done,if infection has already set in without antibiotics this angel could die.I mean neighbors and friends or family had to know about this and they too are guilty for not reporting it and taking the dog to a vet for care..I pray that things have been blown out of proportion here and that he is getting medical care.It's very sad he used this situation to his advantage to get money.I will be taking action on this,thanks for posting

I to have been on Davi's page since it was made public weeks ago, and i knew this guy was using the donations for his own gain, as there was no other possible reason to not have taken him in and start showing photos of the medical work being done, and i posed the same question of fraud. I was one of the many who donated to his cause, and would be more than happy to be a part of Wilson's prosecution!

The whole thing is disgusting, and i pray Davi does not have to pay the ultimate price for Wilson's greed :-(

I'm reposting my comment, because something peculiar is happening, some of my original post is not as I worded it.


Given that this Wilson person is not the owner of Davi, he should NOT have any right to keep Davi or be allowed prevent Davi being taken to vet for getting the urgent treatment needed.

Why haven't animal welfare taken action !!

Wilson you suck

Davi, you are not alone, there are many people whom genuinely care about you, taking action on your behalf,

Have just read few comments regarding what is clearly an outright case of Fraud committed by Wilson.

Animal welfare, with the assitance of police, should remove Davi from imprisonment by wilson,

It must surely be for the authorities to arrest this piece of garbage and prosecute him, for the farm to be confiscated, sold, and proceeds to go to Davi's treatment as were intended.

I send off letters to all three organizations, but I have no idea how long it will take. Only PETA has an emergency animal abuse contact section, but I don't see the address or city of where Davi is so I don't know how effective it will be. I really hope someone already in Brazil can just take this poor dog away from this man. I can't believe he's letting this dog suffer with such a horrible wound. He's going to get an infection that could be fatal with a wound like this. I can't believe no neighbor or anyone hasn't done anything yet to save this dog.

I'm sure BR is doing everything such as possible for saving this poor dog from this terrible, unfair situation!! No law of rights would protect this owner instead of the careless of poor animals, none!! So, be faithful that this honey dog is being treated for the vets, even volunteers, sure it is!! We 'll receive good news in very few time, many calls were done, many people are involved, this is the way we believe! I am very sorry, too.

"Thank you for writing, Sara, and for your compassion. We are currently looking into this.
