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

LIFE IS A BREEZE NOW FOR OUR BREEZE!
The pound contacted us as a last resort to save Breeze's life. We had to go to the pound to coax this broken emaciated girl out of the corner as the pound staff were too frightened to go near her. It took us a long time to mend Breeze in mind and body including a cruciate ligament operation (see last pic). She slowly became the 'Queen of Cottam' strutting around with her beloved Dan and rejecting every home who came to view her until her special family came! She recognised them immediately and she never looked back! Here she is in some happy pics with the family she chose and what a good choice she made! Love changes Lives xxxx

THANK YOU TO THE ANGLICAN SOCIETY FOR THE WELFARE OF ANIMALS FOR THEIR WONDERFUL DONATION

ASWA is a society which is very close to our hearts and we are so proud and privileged to be supported by them particularly during these difficult times.
ASWA strive to put animals on the agenda of the church and although they are a Christian organisation born of the Anglican church they welcome all denominations who share their compassion for animals. First and foremost they care about animals and their welfare as there are so many animals exploited for human advantage and often subject to appalling cruelty.
Thank you ASWA for your wonderful donation from the bottom of our hearts and the hearts of all the dogs whose lives it will save xxxx

🙏PLEASE KEEP ME SAFE FOR A WEEK🙏

We are just about managing to keep our Cottam Ark afloat with your help and support, but we ALWAYS have dogs who need to seek refuge with us. There are ALWAYS dogs that no one else wants. There are ALWAYS vets bills to pay. In order to keep the doors to our ark open and afloat, we desperately need your continued support.

Each dog in our care costs us £3.50 per night. We currently have 80 dogs in our Cottam kennels which amounts to an eye watering £280 per night JUST in kennelling alone. This does not include the 17 dogs we have in emergency boarding at £10 per night which totals £170 night or the costs of any vets bills or ongoing medication or the dogs in foster. You have to agree, that this is a lot of money to find especially for such a small charity like us.

The weight on Trudie’s shoulders is huge.

What a burden for anyone to carry knowing that 97 lives depend on her EVERY SINGLE DAY.

She has the worry about raising funds to support them. EVERY SINGLE DAY.

97 lives that have been let down by every other human prior to finding Doris Banham.

To try and help us raise funds to pay these ongoing costs and relieve some of Trudie’s stress, we are launching our ‘Please Keep Me Safe For A Week’ campaign. We are asking you, our loyal supporters if you would consider sponsoring a kennel for one week for one of our dogs.

The cost of this is £24.50 and means that one dog is kept safe. One dog is warm, fed and loved for seven whole days. Please help us. As a small gesture of our appreciation and a thank you from Trudie, we will send everyone who donates at least £24.50 a lovely thank you certificate by email. We know it isn’t much but we hope you will understand that it’s the thought that counts and that every certificate is sent out with grateful thanks and appreciation. Trudie always feels upset if she doesn’t say thank you to every single person for every single donation, so this is a way of her doing that.

Please support us. Please lessen Trudie’s burden. Please help keep our dogs safe. To donate by Facebook, please use the button below or by PayPal (friends & family) to: dorisbanhamfundraising@live.com Many thanks.

*Please send your email address by private message if you donate and would like a certificate. Many thanks again for your continued support and compassion for our dogs.
