The Big Give 'Rescue to Rehome' fundraiser starts today - All donations up to £6250 are doubled!!
The Fetcher Dog 'Big Give' challenge starts today with a group of 8 supporters, virtually, cycling the distance between the rescue centre in Hastingleigh and Bosnia, approx 150 miles each.
Please follow us on social media @fetcherdog and donate - Rescue to Rehome (biggive.org)
This is a match-fund fundraiser where every donation you make is doubled, the campaign target is £12500.
Match Funding Explained
When the public donates to a charity through a Big Give campaign, we ask funders (philanthropists, foundations or corporates) to match that donation.
So £50 from a member of the public, becomes £100 for a good cause.
Background to the charity
The fallout of the pandemic and cost of living crisis has led to an increase in dogs in need of rescue. Dog pounds are full and more dogs are being put to sleep than ever and families have nowhere to turn when they run out of options for their dogs.
We aim to rescue 100 dogs in 2024 but each dog costs between £350-£800 to rescue depending on where they are rescued from and their medical needs. This will ease the situation in pounds across England, kill shelters in Bosnia and in the homes of people in our local community. By giving these dogs a solution and a safe space to live, we are literally saving their lives and helping to minimise the 'rescue crisis' that we are all currently facing.
