Flo’s first Christmas almost never happened
Flo is just one. One of many.
Help more strays like Flo stay safe, warm and well
Helps pay for a full vet checkup when a poorly dog like Ru arrives at our centre
Helps pay for necessary vaccinations dogs like Flo need to stay healthy
Pays towards a heat pad to keep an injured dog like Lad warm during surgery
This is Flo. Shockingly she was just ten weeks old when she was found in a field, terrified and alone in the midst of the pandemic. We have no idea how long Flo had been left to fend for herself, she was clearly terribly unwell. If she hadn’t been found and brought to us, she probably wouldn’t have seen her first Christmas.
No dog should ever be left on the street. Not during a pandemic. Not at Christmas. Not ever.
A puppy of Flo’s age should be bouncy and inquisitive, but instead she was quiet and withdrawn, with no appetite. Our vets immediately checked her over and noticed she was jaundiced. After further tests and scans, they discovered she had a problem with her liver, and set her on a treatment plan.
Initially Flo struggled to put on weight, and being so young and vulnerable we were really worried about her. But Flo is a little fighter. With patience and perseverance, her condition improved and she began to blossom into a playful pup!
Thanks to our dedicated staff, Flo will spend her first Christmas happy, healthy and safe.But she nearly wasn’t so lucky. Maybe her family could no longer afford her medical bills, or an irresponsible breeder couldn’t sell her. But we were able to change the tale for Flo.
Flo is just one. Lad was another, hit by a car while living on the streets during the pandemic. He suffered multiple fractures to his legs, and needed urgent surgery and ongoing care - which we were determined to give him. More dogs like him, Flo, Duffy and Ru will need help this Christmas. But our income has taken a significant hit, meaning our resources are stretched more than ever. Please give a gift today and remember lost and lonely strays.
Let’s change the tale for more strays affected by COVID-19 this Christmas
