The Three Wheeler

Rita, Sri Lankan street dog at WECare

Rita arrived at WECare in November 2019, as a tiny pup COVERED in motor oil, unable to use her back legs. We can only assume she’d been hit by a vehicle.  Luckily, Rita was spotted by a kind local who brought her in – we dread to think what would have happened to her otherwise!  The poor pup was in a lot of pain and X-ray revealed a proximal femoral fracture on her left hind leg, which unfortunately, there was no saving. Cleaning as much motor oil off her as we could, we booked Rita in for surgery the next day. Rita’s wound healed well following amputation and she was ready to tear about the place after 10 days.

Once fully vaccinated, we popped her into our garden to mingle with the other pups as she was much too small to be put back on the street. Once Rita was big enough to be neutered, we did the deed and then put her up for adoption. Except…nobody wanted her. Despite going to numerous adoption days and being viewed by loads of people, our three-legged beauty is always overlooked. We have no idea why! Maybe ‘cos she’s female. Maybe ‘cos she’s a tripod. Maybe ‘cos she’s blonde. Who knows? All we know is that we will be her family until we can find her a forever home, whenever that may be.

Reclaim Gift Aid (UK taxpayers only)

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.
