Independent local business supports independent local charity
Heathlands would like to say a massive thank you to The Garden City Brewery in Letchworth for their donation of £606!
GCB held a doggy themed quiz and brewed up a special beer SCOOBY BREW of which 50p per pint was donated.
Please support this local independent business and keep an eye out for future fund raisers in aid of Heathlands
Sadly for the first time we can remember we have had to refuse to help the pounds these last 2 weeks. We are running at a £7,000 per month loss something we cannot sustain for very long. The cost of rescuing is spiralling out of control so many need vet care (not including the run of the mill neutering and vaccinating). We will now halt all new dogs until we recover our finances. It is very sad that in all the 25yrs we have been running we only ever had one legacy and that was from a cat person. We rehome over 400 dogs a year. Most rescues rely on several legacies a week to keep going. We have no wage bills to meet - all money goes on the animals but we do not have marketing people in our employ to help us obtain money and as a result have to rely on fundraising. We will of course be moving the backlog of dogs we have in holding. If you can help at all please go to our donations page
WHAT A GREAT DAY!!!
Well! What an amazing day at the Heathlands Fete yesterday! the sun shone the people came with their dogs and it was a record breaking day all round! More people attended than ever before! More dogs were entered into the dogshow than ever before! ( massive shout out to Alison and the dog show team, so well run and organised x) The BBQ sold out by 2pm ( massive shout out to our chef!) and we had so many lovely comments from people about what a wonderful day they had. The ladies from Dundalk were beside themselves seeing all the happy waggy tails of dogs they probably last saw in quite a state. We would just like to thank each and everyone of you who came and supported us on the day, the atmosphere was fantastic and so are you! x
