A pet rescue has launched an urgent appeal to raise at least £250 so a dog with a badly broken leg can have an operation.

Eighteen month old Lurcher Douglas was dumped at Ravenswood Pet Rescue, Walsoken, yesterday in excruciating pain.

The vet has splintered his leg and given him pain relief but between £500-£600 is needed so he can have his leg pinned.

Fenland District Council have offered to pay £250 towards his operation so the rescue needs to find at least £250 more to go ahead with it.

Caroline Trigg, of Ravenswood Pet Rescue, said: “Douglas is lovely and despite the terrible pain he must have been in is such a happy, kind and friendly boy.”
