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

These are so nice! Do you do samoyeds and shih tzu’s? ❤️ xx

Meet Kola. She had been passed from pillar to post and desperately needed a safe haven. 2 year old sharpei/staffy cross Kola had already been rehomed twice in the past week before we answered her cry for help. The reason one person handed her back was simply that she was too messy! 😢

She had been finally taken in by a lady who couldn't keep her. She had been left outside and was at risk of getting into the wrong hands. Things then got even worse for Kola when she was involved in a fight with the resident dog who took her head in her mouth and flung her round the room. The vet said that the sharpei wrinkles had helped the wounds to stay superficial but she sustained a nasty one on her ear. She was put on antibiotics and painkillers but the wound on her ear needed regular bathing and cleaning. She was completely traumatised by her experience and would not let anyone near her and the wound was becoming very gungy. It was urgent she was taken somewhere where she could be cared for properly and could recuperate from the trauma of the past weeks. Although we are full and already have dogs in emergency boarding, of course we said we would take her.

She has been placed in an experienced emergency boarding kennel where the caring staff are regularly keeping the wound clean. Although she became frantic at first when they began to clean her wound, she has now settled a little and allowed the staff to thoroughly clean the ear. The will be keeping a watchful eye to ensure that it continues to heal nicely. Thank you to everyone who helped get this girl to safety. 🙏

We genuinely could not afford to take Kola on, particularly as she has had to go into emergency boarding, which costs £10 a night.

Every day we are being put under strain to help a dog in need. Every time we can’t say no. Every one we take is with trepidation that it was be the one that sinks our ark but how can we leave them when they need us so much? The short answer is. WE CAN’T.

What we do know though is we also can’t do this on our own. We really need the support of every single one of our supporters to help us. Please please consider helping us to help them. Even £1 will help. £10 would pay for a full nights kennelling and care for Kola. If anyone would like to sponsor Kola for a month it is £300. A full months sponsorship comes with a limited edition card from the dogs and also a limited edition mounted art print which was commissioned especially for Doris Banham.

Every single penny you donate goes directly to the dogs. We don’t take off admin charges or wages.

Please help us to continue saving dogs’ lives. To donate by PayPal, please use the family and friends/someone you trust option. The address is: dorisbanhamfundraising@live.com

HAPPY EASTER TO ALL YOU ANIMAL ANGELS
Easter is a time of hope and during this past terrible year hope has carried us through. Last year we made a conscious decision not to play safe and cut back during the pandemic but to continue just as we had been saving the lives of every dog who sought our help. We did this with our hearts in our mouths, hoping against hope that God willing we had made the right decision and that this courage would not bring our Charity to its knees. Dogs had been the victims of the pandemic too and we knew that it was our mission to remain to be there for them.
Here we are a year later still desperately struggling but still alive and still doing what we are dedicated to doing – saving desperate dogs. We are here because of your support and belief in our mission and because of you so many hearts are beating who would have been silenced. For so many dogs, like Snoop, we were their 'last chance to live' and we had to be there for them. Because of you - we were.
We now have over 100 dogs in our care and each and every one of them wants to say thank you for their lives and Happy Easter to you all.
Please continue to support us as the fight is by no means over as we struggle to support our massive ark. But please be so very proud of what your loyal support has achieved and let’s continue to keep faith and believe in hope for a better and brighter future.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Trudiexxxx

MEET OUR NEW NERVOUS BOY - GORGEOUS HUNTER

14 month old Hunter was such a scared boy when he came into our care recently that we were really worried for him but he is settling down nicely now with lots of tlc. Hunter had lived in an enclosure in the garden all his life in a property that did not allow dogs. After complaints from the neighbours, the council said he had to go and his owner begged us to help him. To save him we had to take yet another emergency boarding kennel but we couldn't let him down! Here he is with Mick Robinson who did his transport. Hunter says thank you Mick!

Hunter has a really lovely character but he needs some basic training including learning to walk on a lead before he will be ready to go into a new forever home.

We are struggling to not let any dogs down despite how hard covid makes everything - they are victims of the pandemic too. We would be so grateful if you could help us to pay for the emergency boarding kennels for Hunter and whatever veterinary treatment he needs. The cost per night of the kenneling is £10. Your continued support is totally vital to our survival to help dogs like him.

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

ON THE NEXT STEP OF THEIR JOURNEY TO A NEW LIFE

Remember our Mummy and baby who were dumped on an animal lover who, for their safety, had to put them into an aviary. He called us for immediate urgent help and they were picked up and taken to emergency boarding.

Today they took the next step on their adventure. Now named Leah and Summer our girls today are moving to an 8 week rehabilitation and assessment at the Birkett-Smith Animal Sanctuary. Thank you Phil for doing the transport.

We sought a lot of advice and decided that because of their specialised breed - Central Asian Shepherds - and the fact that they had only ever lived outside on a farm they needed this special placement to help with their rehabilitation. Mum has been imported from abroad and both girls have been bred from. Leah (Mum) has a lump on her hock which also needs investigation. The lump underneath proved to be nothing of concern. Both will need spaying.

The cost of this rehabilitation is £10 per night plus veterinary costs each and we really hope that you will continue to support our girls as we gently and safely prepare them for the life of their dreams.
