Helping our Furry Friends!

Last week the Croydon Advertiser reported a sad story of a beautiful greyhound cross that had been found dumped in a phone box on Chipstead Valley Road with a broken shoulder.
Severley dehydrated and shaken from his ordeal, the three year-old was thankfully noticed by a passer by who immediately called up Furry Friends - a phenomenal organisation based in Old Coulsdon.
The dog, now named Barry, has a great new foster home in Caterham where he is making a full recovery.
Barry was found in my ward, and given the incredible work that Furry Friends carries out locally, rescuing and finding homes for pets that have been abandoned by scurrilous owners, I thought the least I could do was donate £500 of my ward budget to help their sterling work.
My donation will go towards supporting the rescue of animals across Croydon, funding various consultations and check-ups, x-rays etc and will contribute to the vet bill of the charity.
I'll be visiting them in the coming month, but if you are able to support them then visit http://www.furryfriendsrescue.co.uk/donate/ to make a donation. Every little really does help.
