Greece – Lesvos

Welfare | Adoption
An estimated 1 million dogs live on the streets of Greece. The treatment of dogs here is generally not actively abusive; more so unwanted puppies are seen as a burden, abandoned to an unknown fate. A challenge faced in Greece is the cultural aversion to the concept of sterilisation with communities seeing this act as ‘playing God’ or harming the dog.

From litters of tiny puppies too young to fend for themselves being abandoned in the mountains, to a Mum and her young pups being spotted in a neighbouring field, or a lone stray dog following hikers or weaving around traffic; there can be around 70 dogs found abandoned and alone on the island of Lesvos during any given month.

Without rescue initiatives in place to give these dogs a second chance at safety and happiness, they would be resigned to a life of struggle on the streets, all too likely to be cut short.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Wild at Heart to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Wild at Heart we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Wild at Heart to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Wild at Heart will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Wild at Heart receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
