Friends of Animals thank our readers

The Friends of the Animals charity has thanked IW Observer readers for their kind donations, after we highlighted their plea for help and donations in last week’s edition.

The Charity has received several donations, the biggest coming from a man who generously donated £244 worth of dog, cat and rabbit food, plus bird seed. He also gave the charity a very generous donation of £200.

Martin Gomez, Trustee, Friends of the Animals, said: “We also picked up a belated cheque for £4,306,71p from ‘Support Adoption for Pets’ which is the Charitable arm of ‘Pets at Home’. The wonderful figure represents their customer’s generosity from the last two fundraising campaigns. It will do a lot of good for Island animals, we are just waiting for the ‘all clear’.

“We would like to thank everyone who has come forward offering to foster one of our rescued animals. As we are currently unable to do home-checks, so are unfortunately unable to take them up on their kind offers.”
