Tree of Life for Animals (TOLFA)
Liberty Vets Recruitment Are excited to be working with the Tree of Life for Animals (TOLFA) projects throughout India. We aim to help raise awareness of this great cause.
Founded in 2005 by British Veterinary Nurse Rachel Wright, TOLFA serves the street and stray dogs of Pushkar & Ajmer, Rajasthan, India.
365 days of the year their rescue vehicle responds to 20 calls a day and the hospital itself has 300 animals in treatment at any one time.
To date they have sterilised over 17,000 dogs to humanely control the street dog population and vaccinated over 20,000 against rabies of which India has the highest human death rate in the world.
TOLFA employ over 30 people to take care of the day to day cleaning, feeding and medical treatments but are in need of volunteers. Foreign volunteers are not allowed (by law) to be involved in medical treatments of animals, but they do need people to offer extra care to their most sick and vulnerable animals, to help with walking the 150+ dogs who are in kennels, to socialise the numerous puppies, to give baths and grooming…. the list is endless!

Hounds for Heroes
Liberty Vets have recently helped sponsor the Hounds for Heroes 2015 calendar, please lookout for our month.
The purpose of “Hounds for Heroes” is to provide specially trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of both the UK Armed Forces and the Emergency Services.
Through this provision our aims are to provide help and practical support leading to an enhanced quality of life for our clients.
Initially Hounds for Heroes set out to raise £100,000, which would pay for the first 5 Labradors and their subsequent costs throughout their lives. The Puppies on Parade Appeal was so successful that we have just started our fourth appeal to purchase our latest squadron of cadets: we already have one squadron of puppies in advanced training and two squadrons in basic training at our Training Base in Petersfield, Hampshire.
Our dogs are carefully selected for all the qualities needed to produce excellent assistance dogs. The Charity has a small army of puppy parents who help with the first year of training. The dogs then enter advanced training to turn them from well behaved dogs into fully trained assistance dogs that not only bring quality of life to their owner by opening doors, picking up items, getting money from ATMs, opening train doors etc: they also bring companionship and love that can be missing when someone becomes disabled. When the dogs are fully trained the ownership will be fully transferred to the disabled partner.
