AMAZING NEWS - WE WON CHARITY CHAMPION IN THE AMPLIFON BRAVE BRITONS AWARDS 2020!

It was such an amazing and emotional surprise to win the Charity Champion at today's Amplifon Brave Britons Award 2020.

Thank you so much Amplifon for holding this truly inspirational event.

It was a great pleasure and privilege to take part and hear the stories of such wonderful, brave people.

The dogs we save have been thrown-away, abused, exploited, betrayed and considered worthless by society.

Today our work in saving them has been honoured by the bravest of people in this award and thus the dogs' precious lives have been honoured and valued. This is truly wonderful and motivational as it is what we are continually fighting for - that their very precious lives count!
Thank you to Amplifon for this truly amazing award which I will cherish and to every one of you who made it possible. Let's keep on fighting the fight!

Trudie xxxx

PLEASE SAVE OUR DOGS
EMERGENCY HELP NEEDED DURING THIS TERRIBLE TIME

This is the most desperate plea I have ever made and I don’t think during all the times that I have seen our Charity go through I have ever been so afraid for our dogs.

We have today closed all three of our Charity shops as the unpaid volunteers who run them have gone into self-isolation as they are elderly or have health issues which would make the virus deadly to them.

Without these shops we have absolutely no chance of survival without urgently finding alternative means of funding and the services we give to the animal world will be no more.

Without your help we will definitely not survive and our 80 dogs who have only just learnt to feel secure and trust the world again will have nowhere to go as they have already been rejected by everyone but us.

We promised them they would be safe and now they face being at deadly risk again which is an unbearable thing to think about as we care for them – that now even we will be forced to betray them because there will be no money to pay for their care.

If we cannot hold on and weather this crisis thousands of the most needy dogs will lose their lives into the future.

Please be a bridge for us that the dogs can use to reach safety once again.

There are no words to describe just how desperate this situation is and I beg you with all my heart to save our dogs so that we can continue to get them ready for their new lives.

Please please donate, set up a standing order, sponsor a kennel or support us in any way you can so that we can keep all our dogs safe and continue our life saving work during this desperate virus time when the need for us is even greater.

Standing orders will allow us to plan our survival. Donations can be made by any of the methods on the donate page

I am the voice of all our dogs and I beg you with all my heart please help - you are our only hope of surviving
Trudiexxx

Meet our brave Bronson who was at urgent PTS risk due his traumatic past. Bronson has had a very hard life. He was originally purchased as a puppy by a rehabilitating drug user and one night after not getting his fix he beat and kicked Bronson to within an inch of his life. Neighbours thought that it was a woman being beaten up because of the screams. Not long after this, he was sold on for £300 as a perfect loving family pet. Obviously having suffered the trauma he had in his life, it has affected him quite badly. The family struggled so very hard for a year to cope with him but he showed fear aggression particularly to men and they sadly felt they could cope no more.

Thank you to Vic Smart and Mandi Kay who highlighted his plight to us after contacting all the Rottweiler rescues to see if they would offer him a place. We knew that we were Bronson’s last hope so we agreed to take him in under Richard at Cottam. We are full so to make space we had to move one of our dogs ready for rehoming into an emergency boarding kennel. Thank you also to Vic for paying for Bronson’s transport costs to our kennels and also to C J Turner for transporting him to us late last week. We anticipated problems but the calmness and skill of his transporters and Richard from the Cottam team meant everything went really smoothly and Bronson was such a good boy.
We know that Bronson is not just an ‘aggressive dog’ but an animal who once again has been seriously let down and abused by the human race, and is a scared young lad who deserves every opportunity to thrive in this world. We will mend his broken heart and broken mind and in return we are sure he will reciprocate and not just bite out of fear because we will teach him there is nothing to be frightened of.

If you would like to help towards mending Bronson’s broken heart and mind, please donate via the button below or via PayPal (friends & family) to: dorisbanhamfundraising@live.com Many thanks.

HAPPY HEAVENLY BIRTHDAY TO OUR BEAUTIFUL THOMAS

There are no words to describe how hard today will be for his mother Lorna and his Cottam family as today is the 29th birthday of their beloved Thomas who sadly passed from cancer on 5th March 2020.

Today they will be celebrating his birthday in ways that they know will make him smile. The one thing they are totally certain of is that he will be there celebrating with them as he always has been. His light of love has never left their home and the kennels as he watches over and guides the people and the dogs that he loves so much. Today he will share in the love and laughter of his birthday celebrations.

Please send strength and healing to Lorna and Thomas' family today. Their bravery in continuing to dedicate themselves to saving the dogs, whilst their hearts are breaking, has truly been inspirational. They know that that is what Thomas wants them to do but today is an additional pain so please send them all the love in the world to help to keep them strong.

We still have two of these calendars left.

£8 inc postage.

I really can’t go much lower than £8 for them as the postage and packing alone is around £2.50 and then there is the cost of the calendar, any lower and we really wouldn’t be making anything for the dogs.

Please comment below to purchase. Please wait for confirmation o purchase before making payment which will be by PayPal.

Thanks
