Help us

As with most small charities we are dependent on volunteers to run our service. You can help in many ways from major commitments such as becoming a foster carer to baking cakes , or running a stall at our dog show and sale, collecting and selling items at a car boot sale, selling calendars, hosting a collecting tin in your shop or in lots of other ways.

We are open to suggestions you may have on how to raise funds. Contact us with your suggestions or questions. You can donate via the link, you can send a cheque or set up a standing order.

If you would like to set up a regular donation you can do that through PayPal or through your bank. Our bank details are: account number 06006151 sort code 80-09-96. Thank you.


There are many ways you can help. Some people make and sell craft items or baking. You might wish to take a stall at a car boot sale and donate the takings. Business owners can have one of our collecting tins and/or display posters advertising our events. We use our Facebook page as a forum to ask for help with baking for our annual dog show and Christmas fayre so please keep an eye on that page. We always need helpers to run stalls and to help us set up and clear away at events. 

You could also organise your own event which we would gladly advertise for you. Of course we always need foster homes so please apply if you are interested. If you have your own ideas how you could help we are receptive to new ideas so please contact us.


Financial support

One off donations of money are always welcome and can be sent through the post or through our PayPal button at the top of the homepage. If you don't have a PayPal account you can still use your debit or credit card, just follow the instructions after you click on the button. You can also donate via bank transfer. If you want you can make a donation in person please get in touch with us.

If you would like to make a regular donation then for as little as £1 a week you can make a difference and help us at KWK9 to carry on helping the many dogs who come into our care. Every penny raised makes a difference and as we are run entirely by volunteers everything raised is spent on the dogs in our care and promoting their cause.

Food and other items

Donations of other items are also incredibly useful to us. In particular collars, leads, toys, transporters, dog coats, food (dry or tinned) will help KWK9 continue to provide this service to the people of Caithness and Sutherland. Everything is gratefully received. If you have any of these items or anything else which might help us then please get in touch. We may be able to arrange collection. Unfortunately, at the moment we are unable to take duvets, pillows or blankets. 

Become a fosterer

Help save a life by fostering an homeless dog. We are in urgent need of foster homes either long term, short term, or emergency fostering. We are looking for people who have lots of love to give and time available to care for a rescue dog whilst they are looking for a forever home. We ask that fostered dogs are not left alone for more than three hours at a time.

Fostering is not always easy but it is incredibly rewarding. Rescue dogs can be fantastic house guests, but some can be hard work at times. They may have some issues, as would anyone who had been abandoned! Some have been much loved pets and have no issues, they just need a bit of security until their new home comes along. However, with love, care, regular walks and a structured routine it won’t be long before they blossom into happy and well balanced dogs.

Foster carers are extremely important to us, and we will be there throughout the entire fostering process to provide you with advice and support, should any problems arise. If you would like to be part of a needy dog's happy tale, please consider becoming a foster carer.

KWK9 is a registered charity (SC041937)
