Rabid Rosie

Rosie was brought to us by her owners in late 2018 after being attacked by another dog, and getting a broken elbow during the scuffle. The owners told us the dog who bit Rosie was crazy and had died the next day – these signs point to the dog having rabies so we had to make some investigations.

After some detective work (talking to the local community) we found no other reports of a rabid dog. The family’s story also changed three times. So we weren’t 100% convinced Rosie had been bitten by a rabid dog.

However, because of what the owners originally said, we had to treat her case as a potentially rabid one. The options were euthanasia or keeping her in isolation for six months (as rabies can lay dormant in puppies that long). In normal circumstances, in the interests of public health, it would have been best to euthanise her. However, because we weren’t entirely sure she actually HAD been bitten by a rabid dog, we couldn’t bring ourselves to do it. So, we had to put her in isolation for six months. Which sucks, but IS better than death in the long run.

On top of all this, Rosie’s owners gave us false information and we’ve not been able to get hold of them since they left her with us. So she was essentially dumped (which is illegal in this country).

Fast forward to today and the poor girl is a happy little button – thankfully not showing any symptoms of rabies. She’s nearing the end of her six month isolation, which means she’ll soon be up for adoption.

Until then, want pics and updates from this pretty pooch that we’ve affectionately named Rabid Rosie??

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows WECare Worldwide to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to WECare Worldwide we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like WECare Worldwide to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that WECare Worldwide will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When WECare Worldwide receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
