To all our wonderful friends and supporters, we have a confession to make.
Because we have spent all our time investigating breeders and sellers of sick puppies, supporting and assisting families left devastated by unscrupulous puppy traders, obtaining evidence to provide to local authorities and the RSPCA which has led to raids and in some cases prosecutions, negotiating the safe release of unwanted breeding dogs to rescues, working with documentary makers and the press to expose the barbaric puppy trade and keep the plight of puppy farm breeding dogs front and centre so that the focus isn’t always just on puppies, and of course lobbying for legislative change, we have had no time to do any fundraising for our work or even look for sponsors. In fact, to be honest, we’ve been so 100% focused on our work for the dogs, that the urgency of our need to fundraise didn’t hit us until last week.
What began as a small campaign around a kitchen table in our spare time eight years ago, quickly required full-time commitment by us, seven days a week. And although we are still small in terms of people, we hope you will agree that we have made a big impact with our initiatives over the years.
Ironically about 90% of what we do continues to be covert and behind the scenes – work we can’t share publicly. But we are and have always been happy to be the quiet achievers because taking credit isn’t what we’re about. We’re about developing solutions and getting results for dogs.
However, as we enter a new era in the fight to end puppy farming, we still have an enormous amount of work to do for the breeding dogs and their puppies. And now we need your help to keep going for them, and to keep being the voice of our exploited, abused neglected canine friends.
It is out of character for us to ask for financial support, but as we are now on our knees we need your help to keep going for the dogs that need us. Whatever you feel able to donate, it will be appreciated beyond any words we would write here.
Thank you so much.
