Amplifon Award
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!

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

A LONG ROAD AHEAD FOR THIS BOY AND FOR OUR RESCUE

Rastus (immediately changed to Gus) is a very large young uncastrated Pressa who was being kept in a wooden kennel in the garden because his owner had gone to prison.

We were approached to rescue him before we restricted our intake to pound dogs and dogs from vets etc only but we never break our promise so yesterday he was taken in at our emergency boarding kennel.

Typical of so very many unsuitable large breed dogs bought as puppies during covid by people unable to look after them this young boy is going to need a lot of time and expertise if we are ever going to be able to safely offer him the chance of life in a home.

It is very depressing and overwhelming to be continually asked to pick up the pieces when dogs have been unwisely purchased but for Gus we are the only hope he has. It is not his fault that he is the breed he is and that his breeder just sought financial gain from his birth. He is the victim and we have to help him but the prospect of the mountain ahead of us is daunting and exhausting for we have no idea of how long it will take us to make him ready for a home.

Yet again we have had to step up even though we are full and really struggling to save a dog that would not be chosen by any rescue. Yet again no other rescue stepped up to relieve us of this burden.

Even more desperately than before we ask for you to cradle Gus with your amazing support. He represents everything that is wrong about the situation in the country today with 3 million extra dogs and so many of them like Gus young and not an easy breed to rehome.

His care at present costs £9.00 per night.

Please please, if you can even donate £1, it WILL make a difference and will go directly to this beautiful boy.

To donate, please use the button below or by PayPal (friends & family) to: dorisbanhamfundraising@live.com

Please help us to withstand the burden of saving dogs like Gus because the alternative is that they will die or be sent to fates often worth than death. He is now safe and will be safe for as long as he needs but without you we cannot fund such overwhelming challenges. Thank you Trudiexxxx Please share far and wide

HOLMES NEEDED TO BE BROUGHT IN FROM THE COLD

This poor boy was spending very very long hours outside without shelter whilst his owner was at work - often doing 12 hours plus shifts.

Concerned neighbours, disturbed by his constant barking, reported the situation to the Council and the RSPCA and the owner was told that she had to get rid of him.

When she approached us she had been turned down by all the rescues she asked and was desperate as the time was expired that the council had given her to remove him from the property. He was at high risk of an uncertain fate so we said yes.

Sometimes when dogs are in bad situations try as you might you cannot find a way to rescue them and it breaks your heart but Holmes was one we could save.

He is now safe and warm in emergency boarding.

Yet again we have had to step up even though we are full and really struggling and yet again we desperately ask for you to cradle Holmes with your amazing support.

His care at present costs £9.00 per night.

Please please, if you can even donate £1, it WILL make a difference and will go directly to this beautiful boy.

Please help us to support them so that we can always be there to save dogs like him cold and suffering and at real risk of an even worse future. Please share far and wide. Thank you Trudiexxxx

Donated and thank you! I just don’t know how anyone can think it’s ok to leave any animal outside on its own all day 😡😡😡I hope this boy now gets the home every animal deserves.

He will get the home he should have always had due to you. Will donate as soon as I get chance x

Never any need to leave without shelter

Small donation for beautiful Holmes. Why do people get dogs when they know they can’t look after them. 🙄

I’m glad Holmes is being cared for now. It’s one thing to not be able to be there for the dog all day but another completely to leave it outside with no shelter; it’s doubly cruel. Donated 😞

Never any excuse for no shelter. Donated for you holmes hope you’re nice and warm now gorgeous boy ❤️

Is he a Staffy? I’d be happy to foster him if he’s good with another dog and cats. Maybe he can come and live here with us permanently. We live at the beach and my partner works from home. Lots of love here to give xxx

Donation made on behalf of Stephanie Graham xx

Sent 10 hope it helps ,hes just beautiful

Donated. Safe in your hands. Thank you 🐾

He’s wondering what’s going on bless him. He’s gorgeous. ❤️

Donated, thank you for what your rescue does.

Beautiful boy, hope he gets a home soon. Small donation sent ❤️

Donated and shared 💙 xx

Small donation sent from my boy and me. Always wish it could be more but I hope it helps this lovely boy. Thank you.🐾🐾

We would live to Foster or adopt

THIS WAS THEIR LIFE AND IT WAS ABOUT TO GET A LOT WORSE!
This is how beautiful Luna and Magic have lived for the past three years. The yard no longer wanted them and they were about to be moved on to an unknown fate. These two loving and friendly girls were at the mercy of whatever fate held for them. Large and unneutered, breeding and baiting could easily have been their destiny.

Kind animal-loving hearts knew of their plight and contacted us to help and together we changed that destiny. We suffered a terrible setback when Magic was stolen from the yard two days before we were allowed in to collect them but miraculously after a massive facebook campaign she was found tied up and the girls have now been reunited. Thank you so much to Martin, Karen, Terry and Missy from Magic and Luna for caring so much about them.

Now the work for Doris Banham really begins as we work to mend them in mind and body restoring them to condition with good nourishing food and working with them until these two girls who have never known anything other than yard life learn how to live in a home and know the comfort of a sofa and the unconditional love of a family.

Yet again we have had to step up even though we are full and really struggling and yet again we desperately ask for you to cradle these two girls with your amazing support.

2022 could have held horror for them but now they have a brand new life to look forward to.

Their care at present costs £9.00 per night each and how long they will need us is at the moment unknown but they will have all the time they need.

Please please, if you can even donate £1, it WILL make a difference and will go directly to these beautiful girls.
