Thank you Debbie & Ian !!

Updated June 22, 2019 Categories: fundraising, supporters feature, Thank you !!.

Debbie and Ian were married last week and Dotty a DAWGdog was the ringbearer.
Debbie with her Mum Glen have been doing the weekly car boot to raise money for the last 20 odd years and firstly I want to thank her and Glen for their loyal support and all their hours they have spent in the cold, rain and sunshine every Sunday.
Thank you to Ian too who patiently waits for a space to be cleared in their house as Debbie sorts out the donated items.

Secondly, I would like to thank Debbie and Ian who asked their guests at the wedding to not buy presents but instead donate to DAWGdogs.
Debbie and Ian have just let me know that they have raised an amazing £510.00

Thank you Mercia Lifting !!

Could you foster a DAWGdog? We could save more lives if we had more foster places for them to stay whilst they are looking for a home

Could you foster a DAWGdog ?


Every foster home we have means another dog we can save.
We are looking for people who have homes with well enclosed gardens and who are at home for most of the day.
The dogs that we care for are all different, the only thing they all have in common is that they all deserve a better life!

Many of the dogs will be in poor condition on arrival.
Some are underweight, others may have skin complaints or injuries, some will have been very badly treated and spent a life living in fear of the next blow.
This is where the foster homes come in. It is their job to build the dogs up, returning them to a a good state of health, and above all the foster home will need to teach the dogs that not all people are bad!

Some of the dogs have never lived in family homes and therefore they need to be taught some manners, for example, shoes are not for teething on, settees are not for sleeping on, gardens are not for digging in and it is not acceptable to help themselves from the fridge or table.
On arrival all dogs are stressed, sometimes from a long journey, and inevitably they will get upset tummies so you may feel as though you are spending all day with a mop in your hand!!

All food, bedding and vets expenses are paid for by D.A.W.G, so it will not stretch your finances, however it may stretch your patience!! It also helps to have a car to collect the dogs and also to take the dogs to our vet when needed.

Fostering can be messy, upsetting and hard work, but the feeling you get from knowing you have made a real difference makes it all worthwhile.

If you are unable to foster a dog full time but are able to on the weekends,
we always have dogs that would appreciate a weekend of TLC and undivided attention !

Fundraising at The Candle Jar

Updated January 27, 2016 Categories: fundraising, news, organisations which help the Rescue, supporters feature.

These photos are to assist the fundraising we love to do for local causes DAWG Dog Rescue and The Bournemouth Soup Run.
We have a charity stand at the shop dedicated to helping them both, all commission we make from the sales on this stand is shared between the two.
We thought it would be a good idea to post some photos of the lovely items we sell.
We have a great range of high quality bespoke locally handmade oak gifts , Big Love from Bournemouth greetings cards and the amazing Salisbury hospital ‘My Trusty Sunflower’ cream products.
We have samples of the personalised items on display at the shop.
The craftsmanship of the oak gifts is superb, purchasers to date have been exceptionally impressed, me included !
