How you can help Friends of the Animals
Since 1990 friends of the animals have been improving the lives of animals from Burnley to the Isle of Wight and from Norfolk to Wales. The Charity has spayed / neutered in excess of 41,000 animals, rehomed over 9,000 animals and last year we provided veterinary treatment for over 2,900 animals.
Meet ‘Romi’ and Bertie.
When a dog ruptures their cruciate (knee) ligament, they inevitably transfer their weight to their ‘good’ back leg. In large breeds, this unfortunately means there’s a very good chance the other back knee will rupture too. And, this is precisely what has happened to poor ‘Romi’ who underwent a cruciate operation last year.
Sophia, ‘Romi’s owner, is a one parent family with two small children and despite working part time, life is a financial struggle and she has no hope of raising the £2,900 needed for the surgery to repair her much loved dog’s leg. I have spoken to the Vet and as soon as half of the total (£1,450) is secured, they are willing to book ‘Romi’ in. Summer is coming and I’m sure ‘Romi’ would love to be able to go for a walk, but until surgery happens she will continue to be in pain and hobble.
In the past, our wonderful supporters have turned ‘impossible’ into ‘possible’ and I (and ‘Romi)’ are really hoping you can do it again. Please step in and contribute whatever you can by using the ‘Romi’ Donate button.
You can also make a card payment over the phone by ringing our office on 01983-522-511 Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am. Please remember to tell us if your donation is for ‘Romi’.
Happily, thanks to our fantastic supporters’, approaching £3,000 was raised and Buddy’s operation was able to go ahead. She spent a few weeks recovering and the latest email from Buddy’s owner says: “As promised, a photo of Buddy’s first hydrotherapy session today. She has come along fantastically, she’s using her leg virtually all the time now and her…
