We have been busy the last few weeks fundraising, so now seems a good time to provide an update.
2019 SeBPRA Charity Auction
The charity auction was a fantastic success and helped raise over £2,500. This is way beyond what we expected and I would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who was involved. Your support and generosity is greatly appreciated and helps us provide opportunities to dogs that may previously have had none.
The money raised is equivalent to providing food and shelter to 2 dogs for over a year!
A huge thank you to Julie Macdonald, Sarah Stacpoole, The Golden Paste Company, Beatutiful Joes Ethical Dog Treats, Forthglade, Beco Pets, Pooch & Mutt, Mountain Warehouse, Fish 4 dogs, Whimzees, Lily’s Kitchen and everyone else who was able to donate items.
We have set the bar high but we are determined to come back next time and set it higher. So keep a look out in for the next auction in 2020!
The launch of our website earlier this year provided the opportunity to have an online shop, which has been a great success and made my life much easier for tracking orders!
We have been working closely with a number of suppliers to bring some great products like window stickers, keyrings and fleeces.
A particular thanks goes to the Edge Stickers Teamwho kindly donated our first batch of window stickers. As well as looking great, they are static cling and leave no residue behind. So no you can help us spread the word by showing the stickers off in your windows.

A big thanks to Sarah Lumb also for creating and making the keyrings, they seem to have gone down really well so far!
They have proven so popular that I’ve had to order a second batch! I believe this is down to the fantastic design of this year’s cards by Michelle Breakwell. We had the idea earlier in the year to ask Michelle after seeing some of her previous creations, and she did not disappoint.
The second batch of cards has landed and packs are still available, so check out the shop before its too late!

The calendars are on the horizon! We have had some fantastic photo submissions and would like to thank all of the dogs for sending their photos in. It has been a challenge squeezing them all in, but alas we have managed it!
So keep a look out for them arriving in the coming days!
