    Story

    WE NEED YOUR HELP! This summer we went on holiday to St Lucia, kindly paid for by our parents. When we found out we were going we decided to do some research so we could do some good in the country, and as we work with animals we decided these were who we would like to help. We found SLAPS (St Lucia Animal Protection Society) and we collected money and donations to take over with us. On r visits we fell in love with the dogs, particularly Carla, a tiny girl with bad skin who was extremely skinny, and Lola, who was born with 3 legs and who also had bad skin and was covered in ticks. Although the society does a great job where they can, they are over ran with dogs and puppies and we just know these girls will never thrive over there. If we had the option we would have immediately brought them home with us, however, to get into England they need to have a rabies jab and the transport is very expensive, far more than we have, so we are making a plea for help, if you love dogs and would like to see these baby girls rescued and in loving homes then please donate whatever you can, literally every penny adds up! Before we even begin I'd like

    to say a huge thanks to those who take the time to read this, to share and to help us out x x x
