Appeal to help blind puppy

ANIMAL lovers in North Somerset are being encouraged to dig deep and help fund an operation to give sight back to a blind puppy.

Caspar the golden retriever was handed into the charity, Dogs’ Friends, by a breeder after it was discovered he was losing his sight in both eyes.

The seven-month-old puppy, who is currently being fostered by charity member Sally Baker from Backwell, was born with cataracts in both eyes and needs an operation to correct both, which will cost about �2,000.

Now, members of Dogs’ Friends are appealing to the public to help raise the money.

They will hold a stall at Clevedon’s MARLENS festival at the Marine Lake and Salthouse Fields on Sunday to tell people about Caspar and collect cash toward his treatment.

Anyone wishing to donate can also send a cheque, payable to Dogs’ Friends, to Warren House, Brockley Combe, Backwell, BS48 3DF, or by texting the code DOFS01 followed by an amount up to �10 to the number 70070.
