Some of you may remember that last week we posted a photo of a dog training platform that we thought was fantastic, many of our supporters said that should we wish to purchase it they would love to make a contribution towards its cost … so based on that we’ve gone for it and launched a crowd funding page to see if we can gather together enough cash to make the purchase.
Here’s why :
We’re raising £1,050 to buy a dog training platform because dogs find new homes when they are happy & healthy!
Lauren, our fundraiser who is leading the project says ”I have been a part of the team here at Rain Rescue for over 18 months and I am passionate about improving the lives of abandoned animals in and around South Yorkshire. I believe training and enrichment is a vital resource in the rehabilitation of the dogs we care for.
We want to buy a dog training platform to help our rescue dogs who have arrived into our care from death row become happier and healthier therefore increasing their chances of finding a loving new home. We often don’t know the history of our dogs and they can arrive scared, unhappy and withdrawn. Training like this provides the with the opportunity to exercise, interact with people and other dogs, and in turn build up their confidence preparing them for their new life with new owners.
£1050 will purchase the training platform – we already have the dogs, team and field ready to put it to good use! The platform is a tool for RAIN to use for the dogs in our care today and well into the future.”
We have 30 days to reach our target. Please pledge today and help us reach our target – PLUS if we don’t reach it and we cannot afford the purchase you would not be charged. Thank you!
