Jigger from Jetwing Blue / Beach

Jigger Update - 1st November 2018

Great news, Jigger has been released back to Jetwing hotel.

Jigger spent a few weeks at the animal hospital in Colombo after our Critical Care team rescued him after he had met with an accident back in September.

After a few weeks care, his paw fully healed and he was pain free.

Thank you to everyone who supported his care and got him fit, healthy and happy again!

Jigger needs your help to get back on his feet

Many visitors to Negombo's Jetwing Blue and Beach area know Jigger, he is a community dog feed by many locals including some local security guards ( where he sleeps ) and he is also very good at getting food from tourists especially we now know pancakes!

On Saturday Jigger was hit by a speeding Tuk Tuk who ran over his paw and didn't even stop, the security guards alerted us as did the hotel manager and whilst we were looking for him we got a message from a guest Marie who had found him on the beach and kept him safe whilst we got there by feeding him pancakes 


Lucky for Jigger the Dogstar team were in a neighbouring area running a spay neuter program

and were able to come to rescue him,  Team leader Sampath who was just finishing work offered to drive him to our partner hospital in Colombo straight away for x-rays and treatment. Jigger was less impressed by the transport crate and the lack of pancakes...


Jigger now needs to stay in hospital for 2-3 weeks

Thankfully his xrays showed that it was not a fracture but his paw and palmer surface ( paw pad ) had nasty cuts and brusing and he will need regular dressing wound changes and pain relief.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Dogstar Foundation 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 Dogstar Foundation 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 Dogstar Foundation 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 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.
