Petal's Story - Unwanted Pet Week


Suffering terrible injuries, Petal was abandoned  at the vets

Petal 9

Gentle Petal, a two-year-old Lurcher, suffered multiple fractures to her back leg when she was hit by a car. She was left at a vets, but with nobody to pay for the emergency treatment she needed, the vet asked Wood Green for help. Thanks to the support of animal-lovers like you, our vets took over and were able to operate immediately.

We amputated her broken leg, and gave her medication to ease her pain. She needed lots of time to heal and learn how to get around on her three legs, but before too long she was ready to find her forever home.

Whatever you can spare this Unwanted Pet Week will make a huge  difference to homeless and abandoned pets.
