Since the re-opening of our charity shops we have struggled to cover the costs of food and medication for our rescues, the costs of running the shelter also the overheads of the 2 shops, being rent, electric, rates etc.
We also put out a plea for 2 little frightened arrivals, who need full tests, vaccinations, passports and chips. And you, our lovely friends reacted……
That’s why, when we receive any donations of cash, whether it is 1 euro or 500 euros, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of you lovely people.
One of our adopters, Karen Mitchell, sent us a very welcome donation of 200+ euros. She adopted one of our beautifuls and has sent us videos of him, happily playing and enjoying his new life.
Following on from one of her videos which she posted on her own Facebook page, a lovely man called Martin Carter from Colorado USA – YES Colorado USA – sent us a whopping 500+ euro donation! He had seen the video that Karen had posted and told us that he and his family had adopted a “totally broken” dog 2 years ago from a “…. station” and is now happily “blazing” the trails of Colorado with him and his family. He said to “please accept this donation in heartfelt thanks for what you do. A welcome ray of light in these dark times”.
Next, we had a lovely email from Naveed Rehman, who also sent us a whopping 260 euros to help with their costs. She also said she couldn’t afford more! My word…..we were overwhelmed with the 260 euros Naveed!
So, to Karen, Martin and Naveed we here at K9, including our animals, say a huge THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts. These donations will help with the costs for the 2 newbies and help them on their way to finding their new forever homes.
We also want to say a big thank you to everyone who has donated, whether it was cash, food, bedding for the animals or clothing, bric-a-brac and furniture to sell in our shops. Whatever we receive from you – our friends – goes a long way in helping us to rescue more of these life-long companions.
Our PayPal account is now back up so if I have pulled at your heartstrings and you can help us to carry on with our work, please donate to firstname.lastname@example.org
Every cent, every euro counts. Even the ones you find down the back of your sofas; the ones you put aside for completing a challenge and the ones you save for a rainy day!
THANK YOU, WE LOVE YOU ALL X
