Daisy the Wonder Dog!!

We would like to update everyone that has been touched by the story of Daisy.

Having barely survived an horrific hit and run incident whilst being walked on her lead Daisy spent three days at the vets before returning home, unable to walk Daisy had another week of bed rest whilst on anti inflammatory and pain relief medication.

The great news is that as the swelling and bruising has subsided Daisy has been able to take her first tentative steps on the road to recovery and although she still has a long way to go we wanted to share this moment for all those that have taken Daisy to their hearts, and to everybody that has donated to help towards Daisy’s treatment and recovery we would like to say a ‘Huge Thank You’ from all at Friends of the Animals, Daisy’s Mum and most of all Daisy herself!

Foster carers required!

Could you provide a short term home for one of our rescue animals?

If the answer is ‘YES’ we’d love to hear from you.

We will provide everything you need and cover all costs during their stay.

You can make a real difference to an animal that needs a safe haven whilst we find their forever home!

If you live on the Isle of Wight and would like more information please call us on 01983 522 511.
