Special Appeal We don’t often ask for help, But we really do need your help, especially with the with the ‘Forgotten Ones’ – dogs who will be with us for life, passed mostly to us by other rescues because they can’t help them, and in most cases then promptly forgotten.
We have enormous vets bills, and have had expensive repairs on our van, We also desperately need to renew areas of fencing which have rotten after 20 years of sitting in flood water. All this is on top of the routine stuff such worming and neutering.
We don’t re-home hundreds of dogs like many rescues, that is because we take the harder to home dogs, the old, sick, neglected and abused; dogs that are simply less attractive to adopters, many referred on to us by other organisations as problematic in one way or another. So, we don’t have a fast re-homing rate and steady cash flow coming in; in fact, we rarely cover costs. Many of our long termers and resident dogs, collectively known as the forgotten ones, are now elderly and reaching the stage where they need regular veterinary attention.
This is where you all come in. Please if you can donate to our veterinary fund, they and we will be eternally grateful. If you could all donate just a little, you will collectively be doing so much.
Please donate whatever you can and help us to help The forgotten ones.
