All of our Sanctuary dogs have an enriched, happy life and are loved but of course there is a monetary cost attached to saving and housing an animal for life and on average it costs us £15 a week to keep a dog which includes food, treats, vet care, bedding etc, etc. Doesn't sound much does it? But remember with us you have to multiply it by 150 at least as that's how many permanent residents we have and some of them have equipment needs, regular meds, special diets and so on and so forth. So that's £2,250 a week conservatively, £9,000 a month, £108,000 a year....... scary when you break it down and to meet our bills we have to fund-raise big time, ask for free stuff and shout out continually for sponsors and until we win the lottery that isn't going to change! We know of course that every single penny counts to you as well as to us but there are ways you can help us which cost you NOTHING extra and only take minutes to set up.

One of our supporters Gabrielle said "I'm a big fan of this and have been doing this for over a year. I signed my mum up last year, she does her weekly grocery shop online. She got an email a couple of weeks ago saying so far she'd raised £57 for the sanctuary. Not a fortune but can you imagine how much it would be if every supporter signed up."
