Charity's plea for help to pay for vital surgery for Winston the bulldog

Can you help Winston the bulldog get back on his feet?

Can you help Winston the bulldog get back on his feet?

First published in News

THIS British bulldog faced being left in constant pain and unable to walk.

But staff at a Hampshire rescue centre are hoping residents will help get him back on his feet.

Winston came into the Stubbington Ark, but needed costly surgery on his knees after staff discovered he had a painful condition.

Now the shelter in Fareham has launched an appeal for help to fund his surgery and rehabilitation.

The one-year-old British bulldog was brought in by his owner as they worked long hours and did not feel this was fair on the dog.

Handed in last November, he was diagnosed with Cherry Eye, which is a prolapse of the tear glands.

He also had skin problems and an ear infection, but recovered and was ready to be put up for adoption when staff at the Ark, in Ranvilles Lane, noticed he was limping while on a walk.

The vet diagnosed cruciate knee, a common orthopaedic condition typical in British Bulldogs.

Staff at the Ark were worried as an operation to eradicate the condition per leg usually costs more than £3,000.

Luckily, a vet at Downland Vets based in Emsworth had offered to do the surgery at a fraction of the cost.

However, before Winston was due to have his operation, it was discovered he had the same problem in his other leg.

Without the operations, Winston would be left in excruciating pain and eventually be unable to walk and would have to be put down.

So staff at the shelter anxiously waited to see what could be done.

Vanessa Eden, Fundraising Manager at the Ark, said: “Winston is such a loveable dog, who thinks he is still a puppy.

“When we were told about his orthopaedic problems we did not have the means to fund his treatment.”

Fortunately the same vet agreed to perform operations on both legs for £1,000 and Winston underwent the procedure successfully on Wednesday .

After a six to eight week convalescence Winston will be up for rehoming, but the Ark is appealing for the public’s help to cover the cost of his treatment.

BLOB To donate send a donation to: ‘Winston’s Wish’, The Stubbington Ark Animal Shelter, 174-176 Ranvilles Lane, Fareham PO14 3EZ.

Cheques should be made payable to ‘RSPCA Solent Branch’.

I have a dog myself and I am very pleased that this one has had the treatment that he needs, but I think most of his problems are due to inbreeding found in many pedigree breeds and especially bulldogs.
Same goes for French bulldogs, they can't even conceive or deliver pups naturally, all births are by c section due to the size of the puppies head.
Can't be right.

.. so, you don't like the truth?
Typical of those who 'own' dogs as status symbol toys and have no regard for their welfare.

If the RSPCA spent less money on spurious prosecutions of Hunts and country sports they would have plenty of money to pay for this dogs treatment.
I will never donate to the RSPCA as they have the worst record of destroying healthy animals, if you have spare cash for dogs send it to the Dogs Trust, the RSPCA have been hijacked by the LACS and its like, luckily there CEO who was the instigator of this policy has been kicked out.
Maybe they will return to what they are supposed to do which is to protect animal now he is gone and the people who stopped donating because of their change of policy will return.
Saying that I hope the Dog will be OK, its not his fault.

What utter rubbish. Your statement on the RSPCA 's finances has no basis in truth just a narrow minded rant. No change there then...

Is that why they spent £200,000 on a spurious prosecution of a Hunt, they as an organisation are no longer fit for purpose and should have their charitable status withdrawn until they return to the reason they were set up for in the first place to prevent cruelty to animals and not to police the Hunting with Dogs Act.

Whether Hunting is banned or not the people who donate to the RSPCA do not give money to them for policing the act, they give them the money to help prevent cruelty and neglect to animals from people who are either too stupid or too lazy to look after them properly.
Their previous CEO was a Hunt Sabateur and should never have been put in charge, and made the society into a political outlet for his own beliefs to the detriment and insult to those who donated in good faith.

actually the figure was £32600 for one one fox and the lawyer the rspca employed was used as an advisor to to the blair creature over the cash for questions scandal.the organisation said it did not have enough cash to investigate puppy farms where allegations of cruelty are rife.the chairman gets £160000 a year.whether you agree with fox hunting or not £32600 for one case is clearly a misuse of a charity's funds

But the Hunting with Dogs act is a law and as such is up to the Police to deal with.
The police decline to prosecute in this case and the RSPCA wasted donated money in a spurious prosecution to the detriment of many cats and dogs who needed it more.
As to Hunting being cruel, that is your opinion, one which I and many people do not share.

No change there then...[/p][/quote]Is that why they spent £200,000 on a spurious prosecution of a Hunt, they as an organisation are no longer fit for purpose and should have their charitable status withdrawn until they return to the reason they were set up for in the first place to prevent cruelty to animals and not to police the Hunting with Dogs Act.[/p][/quote]Isn't hunting still banned if not it should be. RSPCA keep up the good work and Good luck Winston[/p][/quote]Whether Hunting is banned or not the people who donate to the RSPCA do not give money to them for policing the act, they give them the money to help prevent cruelty and neglect to animals from people who are either too stupid or too lazy to look after them properly. Their previous CEO was a Hunt Sabateur and should never have been put in charge, and made the society into a political outlet for his own beliefs to the detriment and insult to those who donated in good faith.[/p][/quote]To help prevent cruelty. Well as hunting is cruel and the RSPCA are all about trying to stop just that maybe this explains why they have spent the money[/p][/quote]But the Hunting with Dogs act is a law and as such is up to the Police to deal with. The police decline to prosecute in this case and the RSPCA wasted donated money in a spurious prosecution to the detriment of many cats and dogs who needed it more. As to Hunting being cruel, that is your opinion, one which I and many people do not share. geoff51
