A charity founded by a veterinary nurse has received a donation of much-needed dog products.
Created by VN Rachel Wright in 2005, Tree of Life for Animals (TOLFA) runs an ongoing rabies vaccination project for the stray dog population in the Rajasthan area of northern India, as well as providing rescue housing and veterinary treatment and running education programmes in the local community.
The charity has received a donation shipment from animal health manufacturer Virbac, containing slip leads and bottles of the company’s Microbex shampoo.
RVN and TOLFA volunteer Paulette Hamilton said: “Our volunteers are allocated around eight dogs to walk every morning around the TOLFA compound before treatment and surgery start so the slip leads are invaluable.
“These walks enable the volunteers to build relationships with the dogs and get to know them so they can cater for their individual needs and likes, not just their medical treatment. The shampoos are also very helpful because so many of the dogs we care for suffer from skin conditions.”
