Puppy in Trouble….


My name is ‘Fifi’ and as you can see, I’m a very cute little Pomeranian who weighs barely 1 kilo. When you’re only 12 weeks old, life is a fabulous adventure just waiting to be discovered and l so want to enjoy all that it has to offer. But, unfortunately when I went for my vaccinations, the Vet immediately picked up that I had a problem.

The following day, I went to see a cardiologist who scanned my tiny heart – I was so good, I didn’t even need sedating. The scans showed that three of my valves are not working as they should and this means I am in desperate need of surgery. With surgery, the prognosis is good. Without, I will have a heart attack.

I’ve heard that two different operations are available. At the moment, I am only 950 grams in weight and they haven’t got a catheter which is small enough for me. And, unless I can put some weight on, this unfortunately rules out the preferred less invasive surgery – costing £3,600. If I remain tiny, then the more invasive surgery will be the only route. This costs £2,000. Either way, ‘Friends of the Animals’ supporters are my only hope. My time is running out, so please help me if you can.

Thank you

Jack came into our care three weeks ago. Terriers are high energy dogs and 18 month old Jack has sadly spent his entire life cooped up in a crate. His original owners kept changing their minds about re-homing him, but we didn’t give up and got him at our fifth attempt. He is a lovely, bright little dog, very anxious to please and (having watched our two dogs) he managed the dog flap within thirty seconds ! He is brilliant with people including with children and with other dogs and we have just found him a wonderful home with a Labrador. Poor Jack has lost 18 months of his life and so he’s got a lot of catching up to do. Consequently, everything is a huge adventure to him and happily his new owners walk the two dogs several times a day.

The fourth photo shows Jack on his first real walk. He is the small black Terrier in the middle. The other two rescued dogs are Dotty and Millie.




For more than 15 years ‘Friends of the Animals’ have supported the ‘Farm Animal Rescue Sanctuary’ which is situated in Wolverton, a village between Warwick and Stratford-on-Avon.

This years’ extreme weather, starting with the ‘Beast from the East’ which brought cold, heavy rain and flooding, and followed by a very long, very hot, dry Summer, resulted in the 59 acres of grass the animals would normally have grazed on – simply dying

Worse still, due to this year’s unusual weather, hay and straw are now in short supply and inevitably this has translates into rocketing prices. As you can see from the picture the Sanctuary tries to buy “in bulk” to save costs but even so, bales are running at £35-00 each and rising.

 Farm animals don’t have many friends, so please help them this Christmas if you can. Please use the Pay Pal button (above and below this item) to make a donation of any amount to help these animals get through the Winter.
