Malik and Malia were rescued by a Brit working in Iraq, he is desperate to bring them home and has already donated the first £1500 of their funding but we now need your help to raise the remainder.

Let me introduce Malik and Malia, they are two dogs that I came across as pups whilst working on the Rumaila oilfield in Southern Iraq. They were at different locations but suffered the same horrible conditions, no food or clean water and suffering on a daily basis the threat of being kicked or stoned. Malik in particular saw all but 3 of his litter poisoned and was then sadly outcast by the other two. So he spent most of his time huddled under a caravan avoiding everyone. I fed him scraps of food that I took from the canteen. He was traumatised when his brothers and sisters were sadly killed and didn’t eat for a while, and became extremely thin. Over time I was able to get him to eat small pieces of food, but he was still very withdrawn, which is why I chose to adopt him.

Malia has a similar story. She was one of 7 pups and from the start she was very weak, so consequently when scraps of food were found she was the last there and ate virtually nothing. She suffered an injury to her back right leg, where I suspect she was kicked. This healed to a degree, but she has a strange walk now! Over time the litter reduced in numbers but she became detached from the remainder and spent most of her time near an oilfield police building. She used to make such a pitiful cry when I saw her, and I feared that her submissive nature meant she would not survive long in the desert. So I decided to adopt her too as her and Malik have suffered the same detachment from their siblings.

They are both approximately 10 months old and would like to offer these two dogs a life without pain and fear, just love but we need your help so that we can be reunited.

Shortly after Malia and Malik arrived at the safety of the kennels Malia gave everyone a big shock when she delivered 7 puppies.  Sadly 6 of her puppies did not make it but one did and she found herself the name of Amira and their owner has decided he cannot possibly leave Amira behind so we will also be bringing her home to the UK!

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.
