Help save Noah's leg from amputation

for Animal Friends of Turkey (AFOT)

£580.00 + £100.00 Gift Aid = £680.00
Donated to Help save Noah's leg from amputation’s £1250.00 Goal

Seven-month-old rescue pup Noah lives in a world of pain.

The sad little boy suffered multiple fractures to his front leg when he was just 10 weeks old.

The leg was left to mend by itself and while the fractures have healed they did so out of alignment.

This is causing him immense pain and when we sought specialist veterinary help in Turkey the advice we had was that the only remedy for him would be amputation.

AFOT refused to accept this was the only the option for such a young pup, and so we took his x-rays to an orthopeadic vet in England and asked for a second opinion.

His verdict was that there is every chance that something can be done to save his leg and so we are arranging to transport Noah to the UK just before Christmas.

He will be taken into foster care by AFOT Trustee and Committee member Andy Gough where he will join him, his wife Jane and their Turkish rescue dog Dolly in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.

And local Suffolk vet Duncan Hole has offered to perform the surgery for AFOT at a reduced charity rate.

However, the cost of the procedure is still likely to be expensive and so we are urgently seeking help to raise enough funds to save Noah's leg.

We will not know the precise cost until Noah is given a full physical examination after his arrival in Suffolk. However, we are setting an initial appeal target of £1250 in the hope of generating funds to enable the surgery to go ahead when he arrives.

Dogs can operate on three legs but this can often lead to complications later in life. Besides if there is a chance of saving Noah's leg then we at AFOT want to do everything we can to give him the chance of living a full, healthy and pain-free life on all four legs. He deserves nothing less.

Please help us - your donations are so important for this poor sad young pup.

All funds raised will be passed to Animal Friends of Turkey (AFOT) irrespective of whether our appeal target is reached, not reached or exceeded. If funds are being raised for a specific purpose and, for whatever reason, this purpose is no longer valid, the funds will be transferred to the charity for general use.

The charity

Animal Friends of Turkey is a UK registered charity set up with the express aim of rescuing abused and abandoned animals from the streets of Turkey and finding them forever homes in the UK.

The charity was formed in May 2018 and in our first year alone we managed to successfully rehome more than 50 such animals.

Our aim is to at least double this number in our second year but this can only happen if we continue to get the active and generous support of so many animal lovers and supporters of our work.

Each successful rehoming costs the charity an average of £1,000 per animal to cover veterinary fees, foster and kennel care and transportation to the UK. We do not charge those adopting our animals any fees although we request a donation of £300 towards our costs if at all possible. Our work does not come cheaply.

This why we need the help of people like you - people who do all kinds of crazy things to earn sponsorship money for our cause. And equally important are all those who support our fundraisers by parting with hard earned money to sponsor them.

We thank you for your support and so do all those animals who are hoping to find happiness in new loving forever homes in the UK.

Registered charity (no. 1182513).

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
