Our Christmas ‘model’ needs your help please. 

‘Precious’ is a nice natured little dog and is one of the animals who appeared in our recent Christmas newssheet. 

Through no fault of her own, her owner recently lost her home and although she has now found new accommodation for the two of them; in the run up to Christmas, things are far from good. ‘Precious’ has a serious problem with her left back leg which is very badly swollen. Her owner did manage to book a veterinary appointment, but no taxi would transport them.  

The poor dog is in so much pain, she doesn’t want to move and from choice she would spend all day lying down. Another appointment was made and ‘Precious’ finally saw a Vet. Unfortunately, there is no obvious diagnosis and she really needs a C.T. scan – now. This,  plus med’s will cost around £2k, a sum her young owner has absolutely no chance of raising and any help will be most gratefully received please.  

There are many calls on our finite resources – and more so now; as sadly a few days ago, a man carrying  a can of drink, kicked in the plate glass window of our lovely Sandown shop (we have great, clear CCTV footage of the perpetrator). Animal rescue is hard enough as it is. There are many calls on our finite resources and we are all dismayed that anyone would do this. Please help us if you can. 

You can make a card donation by ringing our office (01983-522-511).

Or, you can use the paypal button, or by cheque made payable to F.O.T.A. 

and sent to 17a Riverway, Newport I.O.W. PO30 5UX. 

Please write Precious on the reverse of your cheque.

Happy Christmas and ‘thank you’.
