Please help me raise money to save my animals from being euthanized. I am a 66 year old pensioner currently living in Dubai. I am asking for your help, not for myself, but for the sake of my beloved animals. Many of you may think life in Dubai must be luxurious but it couldn't be further from the truth in my case. I have lived here for 16 years and over those years I have rescued many animals. I now have 9 cats and a golden Labrador, all of whom would have otherwise died of starvation or ill-treatment. When I retired I used my savings to set up a small business in the naive hope it would allow me to remain in Dubai to continue caring for my pets. Unfortunately, despite enormous efforts the business has failed to take off and I have been scratching a living by walking dogs, doing pet sits etc. Dubai is a very expensive place to live and now my savings have gone. I can no longer afford the rent on my small home or even feed myself properly. My pension is mostly used to feed my animals and over the last 18 months I have lost 25 kilos through stress. I know I have to leave Dubai for somewhere cheaper to live and although I have tried to find homes for my animals, this has proved impossible as there are so many strays here and the rescue centers are already full. I cannot bear the thought of having them euthanized so I would like to take them with me when I leave. I have been quoted a fee of 30000 AED (approximately 7000 GBP) to fly the animals out of Dubai. I cannot hope to raise the airfare for my pets without help. I am therefore swallowing my pride and asking you to help me. If any of you can spare the smallest amount to contribute to the cost of the airfare so I can save these animals I would be so very grateful. Thank you.
