Every penny raised is used for the benefit of the dogs in our care, as a volunteer team we have no staffing costs but our outgoings are growing rapidly with things like vet treatment and kennel fees. Every small amount makes a huge difference and we truly appreciate all financial help and time spared.

We have been able to remain open for our dogs during the pandemic due to mostly one off donations and we want to give our sincere gratitude to everyone who sent a contribution or is considering doing so. For us to keep our doors open for animals in need many years into the future we will be relying on animal lovers like you to pledge a small monthly amount towards a consistent budget. As the budget slowly grows, our capacity will grow with it and together we will be able to save more lives.

Below you will find a breakdown of our typical costs as well as some information about what some of our current residents need your help with, we really appreciate you taking a look.

This is where we urgently need your help!

Dogs like our beautiful Willow spend time in kennels whilst waiting for their perfect homes. They have assessments, rehabilitation support, and a lot of fun whilst staying safe at a time when they have no family of their own.

The facilities that we are lucky enough to be able to rent come at a cost of £15 per dog, per day, and at present there aren’t enough monthly donations to cover the full amount for one kennel.

If you are able to spare any monthly amount at all we would be so grateful for your lifeline support!

5 year old sweetheart Precious was rescued in 2021 in need of major leg surgeries, her rehabilitation cost £3,601.20! Click here to go to her page and learn all about her mission to be able to run free from pain.

Your support with donations towards the charity’s ever-growing vet bills is making sure that dogs like Betsy have the wonderful life they deserve for as long as possible!

In April 2020, adorable fluff ball Betsy arrived from the council pound. She had been found straying in London all alone and nobody came to collect her!

It was discovered that she had a dreadful condition called Tracheal Collapse and she was given just 2-3 months to live. Specialist vets tell us that the cartilage in her throat is slowly deteriorating and may one day collapse causing suffocation but against all odds Betsy has a fantastic quality of life and is now adopted by her loving foster family.

More ways to help!

Fundraising is essential to keep our doors open, like many other organisations we have been hugely impacted by Covid- 19 and the inability to attend our usual events. We are always working on new ways to raise life saving funds and there are many ways you can help from home too if you would like to support our dogs:

These are a social enterprise committed to helping Charities generate donations. As part of their mission, they commit each year to give away up to £500,000 in grants which they fund out of the income that we earn. As a social enterprise they earn money by helping connect charities with donors, featuring charities to find them more supporters and by earning a small platform fee when people donate via MyGivingCircle. From time to time socially responsible companies also come on-board to sponsor grants.

So, please donate to us, and also vote for “Spirit of The Dog” today and get us one step closer to sharing in those funds!
