An animal rescue charity has launched a fund-raising appeal to build a new kennel block at its hospital in Rajasthan, India.

The Tree of Life For Animals (TOLFA) was established in 2005 by RVN Rachel Wright to aid India’s street animals and has since provided medical care, treatment and vaccinations to more than 100,000 animals.

However, as the charity receives more than 30 rescue calls a day, additional space is required at the hospital.

Fund-raising

Funding for a block of 15 kennels has already been secured, but money for a further 27 kennels is still needed. To address the issue, the charity launched a fund-raising campaign, which raised £2,065 in the first five days. However, with £7,608 needed to complete the project, the charity is appealing to the profession.

A spokesman said: “With the extra kennel space we can help up to 500 more dogs a year, saving them from unnecessary suffering on the streets.”
