We attend a number of fundraising events throughout the year such as car boot sales, local sales and other events. We hold our own dog show and produce a calendar each year. We will provide information on these events throughout the year. Information will be available here or through our Facebook page.
You can assist us by helping at these events, purchasing a calendar or by running your own event to raise funds for us. You could also set up a regular payment by standing order. Please get in contact if you can help.
We try to run the organisation using as little funds as possible to ensure as much money as possible is available for the dogs. Funds may be used to neuter dogs, emergency or necessary vet treatment, purchasing dog food or other equipment. Occasionally we may need to buy other items but we always try to keep costs down. None of the people running KWK9 Rescue or fostering for us are paid and all have busy lives aside from KWK9 Rescue.
Every dog we take into our care needs a foster home. This is a vital part of our function. Putting a dog into a foster home allows us to find out what the dog is like in a domestic environment. Some dogs have come from a home and are housetrained and used to a collar and lead. Others have no knowledge of living indoors, wearing a collar or even having decent quality food. A foster dog may come for a couple of days, be no trouble and move on quickly. Others need training, gentle confidence building and may in some cases need care for some time. One thing is certain, if you provide a foster home for one of our dogs you will make a massive difference for that dog. Please help. We welcome homes where you have older children, other dogs and maybe even cats but some of our dogs are unable to cope with so much going on so if you have a quiet home where you are maybe home most of the time you really could help with our special needy dogs. Please get in touch if you think you could help.
