I will be heartbroken if I am unable to continue to love and care for Nathan . Please help us live out our lives together

Main image

Nathan, my companion dog, was abandoned by people I entrusted to care for him in NZ after I left for the Philippines. He was only saved from euthanasia because his microchip info included my email address. After an anxious and stressful time I was able to organize his transportation to join me here in the Philippines.

We intend to come home to NZ early in 2020. As part of this preparation I researched the requirements to import Nathan back to NZ, and the costs involved. I was shocked and dismayed to learn the process would take up to 8 months, at an estimated cost of $ NZ 15000!!

This amount is far beyond my means as I only receive 50% of my married NZ Superannuation entitlement because I am living overseas.

The alternatives are to leave him here but, believe me, the Philippines isn't a good place for a dog, or have him put to sleep. Having rescued Nathan from an abusive owner when he was 9 months old there's no way I'm going to abandon him now..

Use of funds

Meeting import costs to return Nathan home, including his 6 months required residence in Kuala Lumpur. Any surplus, or if things don't go to plan, will be donated to the SPCA.

      Thank you for your generosity Christine. I will post an update soon - we've just moved house so the past few days have been chaotic. Nathan has a better place now with more freedom, and safe from passers by who regard him as a possible delicious meal!! Kind Regards, Graeme and Nathan.
