Save Our Salukis: our S.O.S rescue appeal

13th May
A few weeks ago, we were contacted by our partner shelter in Bahrain about three gorgeous Salukis who had been dumped in a desert. All three show signs of shocking mistreatment, their legs crooked and bent. These deformities are the result of being injected with human steroids; a truly abhorrent practice that is carried out in an attempt to make the dogs perform better whilst racing.

After five years of rescuing and rehoming dogs from around the world, we’ve learned that such tales of exploitation and greed are all too common. The sad truth is that animal abuse is still overwhelming prevalent the world over. As such, rarely a day goes by that the team don’t hear of yet more dogs in need of urgent help. Amidst the ongoing tidal wave of cruelty, we’re embarking on a rescue mission with a particularly harrowing story. It’s a story that casts dogs as mere vehicles in the pursuit of wealth and notoriety; a story we’ve heard one too many times. We’ve decided to write a new, happier ending for our Salukis, with our S.O.S fundraising appeal and rescue mission.

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.
