A CHARITY has thanked everybody who contributed towards an appeal to pay for a life-changing operation for an animal in its care.

Pennine Animal Welfare (PAWS) has managed to raise the £1,500 needed to enable Mica, an Akita-Husky pup, to have surgery on a kidney and bladder condition.

Mica had been kept in a garage with little attention.

The PAWS team of Vicky Norman, Sue Curran and Belle Riley agreed she was too lovely a dog to put to sleep and decided to raise the money it would take to help her.

The word was sent out and car-loads of bric-a-brac came in.

Belle dedicated her Sunday market stall to Mica’s cause, raising £350 and £250 on two days. Upper Calder Charity Assist donated £250 and many kind people gave generous donations.

A PAWS spokesperson said: “A huge thank you from the PAWS team to you, the public, the market traders, Brian and Linda Murphy and all the other friends in the background who have made this a success.

“Mica has now had her operation and is recovering nicely.”
