A charity founded by a British veterinary nurse has been nominated for an award for its efforts in using film for fund-raising.

Tree of Life for Animals (TOLFA) – based in Rajasthan, India – has been nominated for a Charity Film Award and is seeking votes from the public to secure the accolade.

RVN and TOLFA trustee Paulette Hamilton said: “Our welcome video introduces viewers to our animal hospital and shelter, and we have been nominated for two further films that tell the heart-rending stories of two particular animals.

“In the coming years, we hope to extend our hospital, education and awareness work and, if we can, open a second hospital in Rajasthan, but these projects depend on fund-raising so the exposure we gain through being nominated for the Charity Film Awards will be very helpful.

“We would like to thank everyone who has helped us to get this far and hope our colleagues in the veterinary profession will help us get the word out, so as many people as possible watch and – hopefully – vote for our films.”

Significant growth

TOLFA was set up in 2005 by VN Rachel Wright. In the 11 years since, its hospital has tended more than 100,000 animals, neutered more than 18,500 dogs and vaccinated more than 22,000 against rabies, treated thousands of farm animals and set up a mobile clinic and education programmes for pet owners and children.

Voting closes on 30 November and winners will be announced at a ceremony in February.
