How you can help Friends of the Animals

Shocking act of cruelty!!

On Sunday the 18th of February at 5.25pm one of our beautiful long term foster dogs ‘Daisy’, who is 14 years old, was left in a serious condition having been, what is believed to be deliberately run over!!

The horrific incident took place near Victoria Recreational Ground Newport as ‘Daisy’ was on her lead and being walked home by her Foster Mum. Poor ‘Daisy’ was screaming as the car went over her leaving a tyre mark on her little body.

This devastating act has left ‘Daisy’ in a serious condition and her long term foster Mum and all at FOTA in shock.

Although still in pain and with a long way to go ‘Daisy’ showed her gratitude to the vet this morning by licking his hand.

To date ‘Daisy’s’ treatment has cost £1,732.69.

This sweet natured and lovely little dog did not deserve this and we would be so very grateful if you would please help us towards this considerable bill that is likely to rise.
