Why Donate? We know the ‘true’ costs incurred in helping homeless dogs become healthy, neutered and ready for their forever homes. The main costs are in holding them in boarding kennels @£8 per dog per day and we regularly hold in excess of 70 dogs in boarding kennels at any one time. The recession hit our rescue, slowing homing rates with more dogs being dumped at vets or on our streets. Councils are giving dogs even less time and putting dogs to sleep more readily, to cut their costs as their budgets are squeezed. We have dog wardens in tears begging for a rescue place, offering their own money to support us, as they know their dog in our care will be safe. We set up the Rescue in 2003 from small beginnings and have a fabulous and hard earned reputation. Our HEART IS BIG; and we have strong ethics and high standards. We are experts in working Terriers and bull breeds and they need us most because they are harder to home than more popular breeds. Donations go straight to pay vet and kennel bills. Our suggested adoption fee of £200 hardly covers our neutering, vaccination and chipping costs. Some dogs need a lot more vet care. Question any rescue presenting their dogs as unneutered. We set our dogs up for life and take the most needy ‘death row’ dogs and turn their fortunes around. All rescues are struggling, as a small rescue we don’t have big benefactors behind us. We live under great financial pressure and continue to take more dogs than perhaps we should. People donate because they can trust us and so we survive, as do our dogs. We really need your emotional and financial help. Donations can be made in the following ways. Every penny will be gratefully received and spent on our dogs.

Earn and Smile
Payroll Giving is a way to know the harder you work, the more you can give, you are actually helping the needy homeless dogs we are out there working hard to save and home. It is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to charity. Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p (60p if you’re a higher rate tax payer). Just follow this link and you will optimise your giving and our dogs will be direct beneficiaries of your generosity and hard graft! More details can be found at: Payroll giving in action We asked a few of our friends if they think it would be a good idea to be able to save a few more of their cousins. Payroll Giving
