Coronavirus funding appeal. SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19)

The Coronavirus pandemic has had a serious impact on our fundraising abilities.
All the events we would have attended have been cancelled.
Events where we would have had supporters being sponsored have been cancelled.

Other than voluntary donations, our income streams have dried up but we still have dogs to feed and care for and other outgoings to cover.
We are dipping into reserves set aside to enable us to purchase a rehab and assessment centre.
Times are difficult for all of us but if you are able to spare something to help us be here after the pandemic, please give a donation.

You can scan the QR Code with your phone or use the form below that.

If you can help us, thank you. Either way, please be careful, follow the NHS guidelines and government instructions, look after each other and your faithful friends and stay healthy.

Coronavirus is a large family of viruses that contains multiple strains.
Discovered in the 60's it infects a number of animal and bird species. One strain that infects humans is HCoV-229E (the common cold).

The strain responsible for the current pandemic causes a disease called Covid-19.
It attacks the respiratory system in humans causing a form of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).
This current strain is known as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
It is highly contagious, often debilitating, sometimes very acute and fatal in many cases without the right intervention and care.
Now we are up against new variants of the original strain. It will continue to mutate until it cannot infect anyone.
The lockdowns we have been though and the restrictions we were subject to were designed as an intervention against the spread of the disease. Now restrictions are lifting it is up to us as individuals to control its spread.
