Poppy's Sponsor A Vet
Please help us provide critical veterinary services for desperate animals in Fiji.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Poppy is Fiji’s most famous dog and her amazing journey is helping to highlight the desperate plight of animals in Fiji.
It appeared she had been struck by a cane knife amputating 50% of her muzzle. With a dreadful open wound she had been left to fend for herself, and by the time she reached us was just 9kg – 50% of her normal body weight.
Had a good Samaritan, not found Poppy and handed her in, she would have died of starvation or as a result of her wounds.
Thanks to a fundraising appeal, Poppy was airlifted to Australia in October 2012 for reconstructive surgery by Dr. Andrew Marchevsky. Her journey was filmed and documented by the Australia television show, Bondi Vet.
Poppy’s story is one in a million. Sadly, so many of the animals she left behind in Fiji suffer and die every day without treatment for illness and injury.
Poppy’s Sponsor a Vet Appeal is asking for your help to raise and maintain sufficient funds to ensure every little animal gets the veterinary care it deserves.
Generous donors from Australia and the US allowed us to hire a full-time qualified vet, Dr. Jo Oliver, from Canada and she is with Animals Fiji for 3 months. But we urgently need the funds to keep her!
Our target of annual target of AUD $75,000 means we can save countless lives and avoid immeasurable suffering.
Your pledge of a regular monthly contribution will ensure we have a stable income we can count on to cover the cost of a paid veterinarian on staff.
200 people making a monthly contribution of AUD $30 is all it would take. Donate Monthly
