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

URGENT APPEAL FOR TOBY PLEASE xxxx

Toby is 16 years old and came into our care on Valentine's Day from the pound with his 'wife' Maisie 10 years old. Their owner had died and they were brought into the pound by the police. The pound rang us as they could not home them and they knew we would keep this bonded pair together.

Toby and Maisie recently went into the perfect long term foster home with the most amazing foster mum Emma and all seemed perfect.

We knew that Toby had age related liver and kidney issues but then Toby deteriorated, stopped eating and became jaundiced. The vet gave us the choice of putting him to sleep or sending him to Paragon Specialist Referral Hospital. Although we are struggling badly we did not hesitate. His life is precious and he has a new life just starting living with Maisie and all the love in the world from his new Mum. We had to give him the chance to live as long as possible in his new perfect world. It is sometimes just a blip and not the end of the journey and we had to investigate to see what we were dealing with.

Toby was admitted to the hospital and underwent tests, fluid therapy and a new regime of medication and food. Toby is now home again and this is what his new Mum says:

"He's doing amazingly and is perky & totally lucid. He's eating 4 little meals a day, which is good for his liver & kidneys. He's been chasing tennis balls & has such a funny running motion. Reminds me of Rubydoo, running like a rocking horse 😁 He's settled on the level of meds now, so no more tweaking required. His sclera is no longer yellow, so his jaundice is now fully under control. And yeah, an overall massive improvement and a much different doggy from even before he was ill! When he greets me with his little wiggly stump & his big floppy ears it makes me very happy. He's up & down the sofa on his steps & loves tickles & tummy rubs, as does Maisiemoo. Toby's trekking through all the trees & bushes. He loves it! Anyways, Adam the vet was really pleased to hear about his progress. I'm updating him again in a fortnights time. We're sticking at same level of meds, 4 feeds a day & any problems, I can call vets anytime he said. Otherwise he'll see Toby for a full review in a month or two".

It is impossible to put a price on what has been bought for Toby but the cost of this treatment was £1,931.10. It is a cost that is crippling for us at this moment as we struggle for our survival but we had to make a decision when he needed us the most. When a rescue takes a dog into their care it is their duty to be there for them during the good times and the bad.

We ask please if you would consider lightening this load for us by donating towards the cost of Toby's treatment

Please please, if you can even donate £1, it WILL make a difference and 100% will go directly to my care.

That is brilliant, what is the cost please

WOW LOOK WHAT THE CROSSBREEDS TRIKE CLUB SCRUFFY PUPPY RALLY RAISED FOR OUR DOGS!

We are delighted to tell you that the Crossbreeds Trike Club raised an amazing £1000.61p for Doris Banham at their recent first rally called SCRUFFY PUPPY. They will be holding another rally "SCRUFFY PUPPY rally POOPED AGAIN" next year and various other events during the year with all donations to Doris Banham so please support them.

These really lovely people came up to the kennels to present the cheque and meet the team and some of the dogs ready or almost ready for rehoming.

We would like to thank them from the bottom of our hearts for this amazing donation which will fund 263 life saving kennel nights and from the bottom of the hearts of all the dogs who will now live because of them.

In order of appearance the dogs who came out to meet and greet are : Rex; Puddin: Puck; Jasper; Freddie; Bear and Bramble. Puddin and Freddie are wearing the lovely bandanas from preciouspaws.org who are donating all proceeds to Doris Banham.

It was a wonderful day where those dogs who had been saved death met wonderful people who were fund-raising to save more of their friends. Thank you Crossbreeds Trike Club - you are all stars xxxx

SMURF SAYS PLEASE BELIEVE IN ME - I WON'T LET YOU DOWN

I am a year old and my death was due in the pound on the day they contacted Doris Banham Dog Rescue. Everybody else had said no and that they could not help me. I was desperate and so sad.

I am a good boy really but I have suffered abuse and I have triggers when I just can't help myself. When these triggers happen I don't mean to get so worked up. It is not my fault - I just can't help myself. I have never ever bitten anyone though.

When I thought everything was lost for me, Doris Banham Dog Rescue said yes and that they would take a chance on me. I owe them my life. I just needed that chance and I promise I will not let anyone down.

Because they have no room at all I have gone into emergency boarding and my emergency boarding costs £8 per night. They did not have time to ask as I had to be collected that day.

If Doris Banham had counted the cost of saving me they would have had to say no but they didn't - they counted the cost of my life and they knew my life counts.

I am so worried that I am going to be the one that sinks their wonderful ark. Please please I beg - could you help to support me whilst Doris Banham sort out my triggers and gets me ready for the home I want so much.

I am now safe but I will only be safe whilst they survive. They are limping along with only a couple of months ever in hand but they have so many dogs just like me being retrained who will need much longer than that to find their forever homes. Without them we will be once again in the danger they rescued us from and without your help they do not have chance of surviving.

Please please, if you can even donate £1, it WILL make a difference and 100% will go directly to my care.
