I need your help to fund little Caties transport costs so I can get her to the UK. 

I discovered her back in August 2014 in Koycegiz Animal Shelter in Turkey. She was one of many of the puppies there that had Canine Distemper. Prognosis was poor. Most of the other little ones sadly passed away during my visit but on my return home Catie who had no name was still fighting. I contacted the wonderful Sarah Browne from the shelter and asked her to get the best treatment for her, which I would fund. 

After weeks of daily visits to a non local vet having IV infusions, many medications , good food and lots of love and care her symptoms improved. Unfortunately she then developed pneumonia and a nasty wound from a bite by another dog.  Following more treatment and a long fight she improved again. I made the decision I was going to bring her home to me. By a stroke of luck a foster home was found as Catie probably wouldn't have survived a winter in the shelter. 

Catie has now had all her necessary vaccinations, rabies vaccinations and blood tests which still have to be paid for and is waiting out her quarantine period till I can fly her home to me. 

I knew when I decided  to help this little one I was going to be stretched financially , but I just couldn't bear to see or hear of another baby dying in the shelter. I feel so much for the volunteers who have to see this on a daily basis. Their love and commitment to the animals in their care is in abundance and I'm sure a little part of them must die whenever they lose one of them. 

I now need to raise the funds for Caties flight home .A massive thank you in advance to anyone who can help me with a donation no matter how small. 

Any monies donated in excess of what's needed for Catie will go to Koycegiz Animal Shelter, who are in desperate need for funds for vet bills, food, blankets, medications etc
