STAFF at a rescue centre in Awsworth are celebrating after kind-hearted fundraisers helped save a dog’s eyesight.

The Advertiser revealed in October how Boggle had been found with cataracts and needed a £1,500 operation to save his sight, leaving staff to work on a big fundraising initiative to pay for the operation.

The mastiff cross now has his sight restored and has been re-homed.

Centre manager Tony Sanderson said: “We want to thank everyone who donated to his eye surgery fund.

“The surgery carried out was a total success and he has had all his immediate aftercare visits to the vets. He can now see clearly and is happier than ever.”

Scarsdale Vets carried out the operation at 30 per cent of the normal cost.

After ten-month-old Boggle was found wandering the streets of Nottingham last month, Mr Sanderson sent out an appeal in the Advertiser for donations to help pay for an operation.
