We have a MASSIVE MASSIVE thank you to say to the below 2 grant making organisations
As you know in December last year we were lucky enough to purchase the kennels premises instead of remaining here on a rental basis! That literally secured Greyhound Gaps future as a rescue for however long it was needed. Typically once we had secured purchase and used reserves to fund the deposit our much loved rescue van Bessie started to show how upset, ill and tired she was after years of loyal service and saving hundreds if not thousands of lives.
We are over the moon to say that both the Jean Sainsbury Animal Welfare Trust and the Kennel Club Charitable Trust have awarded us a grant of £10,000 each. That means that we now have £20,000 to source a suitable relatively new van with low mileage and hopefully years of service in her and to get her fully professionally kitted out and ready for action.
Grant making trusts like this are IMPERATIVE to little charities such as ourselves when expensive capital purchases are necessary and we honestly can not thank them enough. Just from the bottom of all our hearts and the dogs the van will go onto saves hearts thank you!
Now Lisa, our founder, has to deal with the emotional trauma of Bessie being retired - she is has great affection for Bessie who has helped countless dogs to safety and new lives.
