Rescue and Sanctuary

Would like to THANK DINAS for their kind donation
We are a small charity helping those extra special dogs. The dogs are rescued from private homes, vets and other rescues around the UK. We help Gundog Breeds and Jack Russell Terriers but we do also help other breeds when they need our help.
We like to help dogs that need to have some training before being rehomed and also to help older dogs that cannot be rehomed due to ill health.

our ‘long term residents’ would like to say a special THANK YOU to
Dogs in Need Agility Society
As the donation will be used to build a safe and secure outside space for the oldies, to come and go as they please.

Babworth Animal Rescue Kennels (BARK)
Donation £1,500

Club Secretary –Rosie Sleaford visited this Rescue Kennels near Retford Nottinghamshire having researched the work done by two ladies desperately trying to give all 50 dogs in their care the very best life and health care possible. They have both sold all their valuables, and are left in their homes with the bare essentials without too many home comforts.

They never put down any dog taken into their care; one dog in particular has been there six years. A lovely dog, very affectionate to humans but sadly not too keen on other dogs, we presume he will spend the rest of his life in this happy and well looked after kennel environment.

All year round they stand at two Car Boot Sales, raising any cash they can to keep their kennels open.

Our donation will go towards paying veterinary bills and new fronts on the kennels, which are now quite rusty and desperately needing attention.

Thank you DINAS competitorsand helpers.

East Anglian Air Ambulance
Donation £750

Show Secretary –Shelley Christmas chose to donate half of her fund once again to AEEE. This is the Air Ambulance that operate over Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk where of course our show is held.

Thank you DINAS competitors and helpers.

Donation £1,500

Entertainment Officer –Sarah Boxall decided that F.A.I.T.H. Animal Rescue at Hickling Norfolk should be her nominated charity.

Their manager said a special thank you to DINAS, and was amazed at the amount of donation awarded, they were very touched that from a family/dog holiday this amount of cash was raised, and they were chosen to use this money within their rescue centre.

Redwings Horse Sanctuary
Donation £750

Show Secretary –Shelly Christmas chose Redwings Horse Sanctuary to receive the other half of her allotted donation fund.

‘The money that you raised through your Dog Agility Show will help us care for our rescued residents –many of whom have special long term needs such as arthritis or behavioural problems such as nervousness of being handled by humans. Your support will help provide these beautiful animals with a safe and loving home for life, and where possible, will help us to find them a kind foster home if they can live outside our care.

Redwings Horse sanctuary relies 100% on the support and generosity of people like yourself. Your gift will not only help us care for the 1,300 horses already in the safety of the sanctuary, but also to reach hundreds more every year who are suffering from abuse, neglect or mistreatment in the UK.’Writes Sally Rush –Supporter services.

Thank you DINAS competitors and helpers.

Lucy’s Day Out
Donation £1,500

Judges Secretary –Clare Murray had no hesitation in making her nomination fund go to this excellent charity

‘Lucy was just six when she developed "Rhabdomyosarcoma" a solid inoperable tumour in her head. She had harsh chemotherapy and radiotherapy which seemed to work as Lucy was well for four years but sadly she relapsed in March 2009 and lost the battle this time.
During the last six years Lucy had wonderful holidays and days out through different charities making a 'horrible life' fun! When Lucy knew she was dying she asked if we would do special things to remember her on her birthday. This is where she came up with the idea of the charity; she even designed her own logo for Lucy’s Days Out.
Lucy died on the 23rd September 2010 after years of suffering. Unfortunately years of chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment did not work for Lucy. In Lucy’s last few months her dying wish was to help others by forming a local charity. Keith Hartland, Jerry Holt and Peter Tanner teamed up with Julie Page to set up the Lucy’s Days Out Charity in August 2010. The trustees, supported by a very willing committee, local businesses and many more, are committed to making Lucy’s dying wish a reality.’

Thank you DINAS competitors and helpers.
