RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre sets up gofundme donation page for Bella the Belgian Shepherd after she was left for dead in the River Trent at Farndon
The RSPCA's Radcliffe Animal Centre has set up a gofundme donation page for Bella the Belgian Shepherd.
It comes after thousands of messages were received on social media in support of the pup who nearly drowned after being dumped in the River Trent on Monday morning.
Bella had been tethered to a rock and saved by a dog walker who bravely lifted her out of the water.
Jane Harper thought Bella was dead and only realised she was alive when she saw her blink.
Bella was taken by police to a local veterinary centre where she took her first steps to recovery, and is now being cared for at the RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre.
The centre said: "Thank you to the many people that have expressed their kindness and good wishes for Bella’s recovery. Radcliffe Animal Centre will now take over Bella’s veterinary care and support her through the next stages of her recovery in her foster home.
"Huge thanks to the amazing lady who rescued her, Nottinghamshire Police and the vets who provided her with emergency treatment.
"Bella’s case is now under investigation with the National RSPCA and we will bring you news of her when we are legally able to do so."
As a result of the many requests from the public, the centre set up a gofundme page which can be viewed here.
The public can also donate by texting 'BELLA' to 70085 to donate £5, plus the cost of a standard rate message.
