Hundreds Back Dog's Fight for Life

By Ben Pindar, Community Newswire
Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom

An injured dog was today getting a second chance at life after an appeal for funds to cover the costs of vital surgery was answered by hundreds of people.

Cambridgeshire animal shelter, Wood Green, launch an urgent appeal for £3,000 to cover the costs of surgery for "Dodger" the dog after he sustained horrific injuries in a road collision.

Within hours of issuing the appeal hundreds of people inundated the Godmanchester rescue centre with cash offers including poetry publishing firm Forward Press who donated the full £3,000.

Dodger, an 19-month-old terrier, has now undergone the life-saving operation and staff at Wood Green expect him to make a full recovery.

Thanks to the flurry of donations Dodger's treatment and aftercare needs have also been met.
