Charlie is a very special little pupper.  We first learned about him back on October 2022.  Charlie had been adopted by a British soldier working in the Middle East but he was in a very remote place that we could not get him from easily.  We put multiple plans into place but sadly none of them came to fruition, we were beginning to lose hope that we could get him then out of the blue in December the stars aligned and we were able to get him to the shelter.  The final plan did not come without its problems though and on the day Charlie was due to arrive with us he actually got run over by a car.  Thankfully he was not too seriously injured and within a few hours of arriving at the shelter we had him on the operating table cleaning up and stitching his wounds.

Charlie was incredibly nervous of us all when he arrived but a few days of lots of love and bribery with treats soon changed his mind and now he spends his days playing with the other dogs and the staff at the shelter.  We are just waiting on Charlies FAVN test result to come in and we will then be able to plan for him to be reunited with his soldier in the UK.

Charlies soldier tells his story in his own words below:

“Charlie was a stray who was subject to abuse from a partner force while UK armed forces were working in the Middle East, 2 colleagues and myself decided we had to help him out and took him away from them. we de wormed and flea’d him and gave him a good scrub. from then, he became one of the lads. Vital to the company’s morale, we decided he couldn’t be left behind and started the process to get him home. he’s a typical boy who loves to eat til he pops and play every minute he can, not to mention the fact he will chew anything he can get his chops on. He’s become an extension of myself and I want to give him the happy and loving life he deserves here in the UK so must desperately get him home.”

Please donate today and help us get Charlie back with his soldier where he belongs.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like War Paws 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 War Paws 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 War Paws 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.
