Kennel Fund Appeal
Pound for a Hound Property Appeal
Our future long term aim for the rescue is to own the kennels we current rent. By having our own property the costs to the charity are reduced and it allows for more one to one attention for any hounds needing extra rehabilitation and training. To have the opportunity to work more intensely with our more troubled hounds would give them a greater chance of finding a new home. In order to achieve our dream of buying the kennels we need to raise a deposit of at least £190,000.
This is an eye-watering amount of money for a rescue where every penny goes directly to the dogs’ care, so how do we raise £190,000? We break it down into small manageable chunks...our aim is to find 190,000 people to donate just £1. Can you spare a £1 for a hound?
Our fantastic online forum members are also coming up with many fundraising ideas such as sponsored activities, mini-auctions, raffles and the creation of a Photo Collage.
The Photo Collage will be made up of hundreds of photographs submitted by individuals for a cost of £1 per photograph. The hope is once a property is secured we will be able to display this in the reception area.

We also have to remember that aside from raising money for the property we still have to carry on fundraising for the day to day running of the rescue which will continue with stalls at shows, meet and greets, street collections and forum competitions. Any fundraising events arranged specifically for raising funds for the property will be clearly described so everyone will be aware that, unless specified, all other fundraising will be for the benefit of the charity's running costs.
