Help a Poundie!

Your help is URGENTLY needed to help a poundie...

Here's why...


In order to ensure that a dog is safe at the end of its 7 day stay in the pound we sometimes have to use the option of emergency boarding kennels. These cost £5-12 per dog per day. If a "poundie" runs out of time and a rescue space has not been secured at the end of the 7 days, we aim to move them to these emergency kennels whilst work continues to find a rehoming centre that can offer a place from which the dog can be assessed and rehomed.

Rochdale Dog Rescue is not assisted by any government funding and relies heavily on the support of you, the public.

The continued need for the essential safety net of boarding for dogs who run out of time in the pound is a major strain on the finances of the rescue, and donations do not come anywhere near the amount we have to pay out. As a result of the ever growing Bull Breed Crisis the numbers of dogs coming through the pound remains constant. With many rescues closing their doors to Bull Breed types, the safety of emergency boarding is vital, but we can only continue to offer this safety net with your help.

We hope you will continue to lend us your support, with donations and fundraising events. Your help has done so much to ensure we can continue our work throughout 2015. Thank you!

Why we need Donations

As well as emergency kenneling and necessary veterinary treatment to ensure a dog remains safe before moving to rescue, donations are also used for the following:

Neutering or spaying - Some of the rescues we are offered spaces by ask us to arrange this before a dog can move to their rehoming centre.

Vaccinating - Again, some pound dogs need to be vaccinated to gain entry into some rescues.

Petrol expenses for our volunteer drivers - They offer their time and vehicle at no cost to Rochdale Dog Rescue, but sometimes a driver has already given us a tank full of petrol and if we can help a little it may mean they can go the extra 50 miles needed.

Every bit of help we get makes a huge difference to these dogs' lives, and every penny enables us to continue helping poundies and saving lives.

Acknowledgements

Rochdale Dog Rescue would like to thank previous sponsors whose help has enabled dogs to be kept safe in emergency boarding kennels, while arrangements continued to move them to their rescue spaces. Without your help we could not keep these dogs safe at the end of their required 7 day pound stay. Your support is very much appreciated and has been essential in enabling us to save more dogs.

THANK YOU!
