***** Building Blocks Appeal *****
This is the big one! Please help us reach our dream of our own Rescue Remedies Rescue Centre - A Home for the Homeless Dogs.
Lynne started the rescue in 2002 from her own home, saving dogs and finding them forever homes. After four years, we starting using boarding kennels, and currently have around 80 dogs spread over 5 boarding kennels in Surrey and Hertfordshire. This costs £56 per dog per week, so our weekly kennel bills alone are around £4500.
The logistics of using 5 kennels spread over such a wide area mean that Lynne, who runs our rescue, spends many hours and miles every week travelling from kennel to kennel for vet visits, homings, moving dogs and general welfare.
It has always been a dream to have our own Rescue Centre. Our main boarding kennel that we use is closing in 2 weeks, and this is the catalyst for us to go out there and make our dreams come true!
We need to raise £900,000 to purchase premises and make them suitable for the dogs in our care. To have our own Rescue Centre would make the world of difference to our dogs, being cared for by our own staff and volunteers who can put their interests as a number 1 priority. The time saved by having them in one place means we can focus more on finding them their homes, and giving them more socialization, exercise and one to one attention.
Our bank account details are on our Standing order form which you can print off or set up online. If you can be generous with a one off contribution and label it with Your NAME & BUILDING BLOCKS as we will check our bank statements monthly upload the names and contributions on to our websites to build up a running total. Our need is NOW so we are asking a special from you and PLEASE if you are a tax payer complete our Gift aid form at the same time, if you haven't already, to optimise your contribution. Directly into our account will mean we are not paying %costs from other avenues, every penny will matter and be received immediately and be set aside for our new project We can't get national lottery grants as an animal charity and miss out on most grants as we have no premises or land. Please can you dig deep as a one off and lets start a momentum for our Gold Star Rescue as a haven for our longstay dogs and future strays
