Dumfries And Galloway Dogs Come In From The Cold With The Kennel Club Charitable Trust

Local charity the Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre has received a much needed boost of £10,000 from the Kennel Club Charitable Trust.

PRLog - Dec. 15, 2010 - The Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre has helped more than 2,000 dogs since it opened in 2003, but this year the Centre has not only seen a rise in the number of dogs coming through its doors and needing expensive veterinary treatment, but it has also lost key funding.

The Centre approached the Kennel Club Charitable Trust and asked for help with the increasing veterinary bills. Impressed with the Centre’s high standards of dog care and determined attitude to help as many dogs as possible, the Kennel Club Charitable Trust awarded the Centre the full request of £10,000.

The Centre manager Fiona Brightley said: “We are very grateful for this amazing donation. Unfortunately with the current financial climate we have seen a rise in the number of dogs and a decrease in donations. This money will go straight towards veterinary fees as we make sure every dog is given the best care before we rehome them to suitable families.”

Veterinary fees at the Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre reach over £40,000 a year and so the Centre relies on a mixture of grants along with its own fundraising activities. The Centre has four charity shops that are staffed entirely by volunteers in Dumfries, Newton Stewart and Dalbeattie, and a fund-raising sub-committee is working hard to come up with ever-more inventive ideas to raise money for dogs in the region.

The Kennel Club Charitable Trust awards grants to organisations which make a difference to dogs’ lives by providing financial support to scientific research, support charities and welfare organisations like the Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre. The Trust was established in 1987 and has donated over £5m to a range of organisations and charities, with more than half of this money distributed in the last five years.

The Trust awards grants to organisations to help them to achieve its objective of 'making a difference for dogs' and supports work with dogs across three distinct areas:
•   Science - funding research into health problems in dogs
•   Support - helping to train dogs to help human beings
•   Welfare - providing funds for dogs that need help or rescue
