DotDot Fundraising & Charity work
Its now Summer 2019 and DotDot have spent the last year supporting various Cypriot & Serbian street dog charities.
I am thrilled to say that in the course of the last 12 months, we have assisted 8 dogs getting their forever homes in the UK and raised nearly £1800 in funds and I have also been a consignee for a flight coming into the UK and had the honour of handing over fur babies to their new forever families.
We are thrilled to have supported the following rescues & charities;
* Fundraising for Cyprus Street Dogs
* Apollo's Angels
* Noah's Ark Dog Shelter
* Pointer rescue Serbia
You will continue to see DotDot support some of the above charities by way of monthly kennel sponsorship's or simply by sharing the posts for some of the beautiful fur babies who need their forever home.
I get asked a lot why I don't support UK dog charities - simple answer...I do!
My beloved Percy came to us from Cyprus in Jan 2019 and it opened my eyes to the epidemic that there is abroad of abandoned gun dogs - I made a promise that I would help in some way to repay these amazing people who give their time freely and often, to take these poor, discarded and badly abused dogs off the streets and into their home.
It really is so easy to adopt from abroad, the paperwork and legals are all done by the charity, and the medical and vets side of things is more thorough (dare i say!) than getting a dog from the UK! They have more tests and paperwork within their passports than you get when you buy here in the UK. You then continue to get 100% support from the rescue for life.
I am not discouraging anyone buying a dog from the UK, or adopting from the UK, I am just embracing all the different ways that we can add a fur baby to our families. After all, whats a home without a doggy ;)
