This will be the last fundraising appeal before the holidays. I won’t blame anyone for being sick to death of all the appeals, but I thought I would explain why it is so important to us to raise steady funds every month.
We are only a small rescue, run by a single human slave who works 12 hrs a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, for no pay. That makes it possible for us to run this on a shoestring budget of € 1000-1500 a month. If we were to put the dogs in boarding kennels, it would cost us at least €2500-3000 a month.
We are supported by some amazing people who every now and then organises raffles, auctions or fundraisers, but that can’t be done every month. There is no grant, we are not propped up by a bigger organisation who can bail us out if we run out of funds. There are utilities to be paid each month, cleaning supplies to be bought, dog food to be bought, vet bills to pay. There is a car to keep on the road, to take dogs to the vet, to transports, to bring dog food home.
Apart from the dogs available for rehoming, there are also three permanent residents here. Spooky dogs who are too nervous around new situations to be adopted out, and one palliative care case.
If we have to close down, and that is a prospect we worry about all the time, our places for greyhounds to be rehomed will simply disappear, and even fewer greyhounds will get a chance of a permanent home each year.
There are over 2000 followers of this page. If even half of you could donate €1 a month, it would make such a difference to us. Think about it. One euro a month is less than a cup of coffee.
