A £300 donation from a company payroll giving scheme to help with kennel costs and vets fees will make a considerable difference to the efforts of a dog rescue and rehoming centre called Dun Roamin.
The donation was nominated by Liz Bailey, who works for employment and training specialists Pertemps People Development Group in Mill Street, Cannock.
Liz, who lives in Tamworth, has benefited from the dog centre’s services and said: “Dun Roamin are a group of extremely caring animal lovers very close to my heart. I’ve become a friend on Facebook so when I got my new pups Freddie and Chester I got in touch and they micro chipped them for me. I’ve also become a supporter because I like the way they promote responsible dog ownership through their educational programme. The team are always happy to give good practical advice.”
She added: “I wanted to help in some way after hearing the service was struggling and approached our company payroll giving scheme for help.
“All the staff in our office have money deducted from our salary each month and I made the suggestion that a contribution would provide a timely boost to their work. I’m absolutely thrilled that we could help in some small way and it would be fantastic if other local businesses could find similar donations to help with the growing pressures faced through irresponsible dog ownership.”
Dun Roamin, at Witherley, near Atherstone, has become the first point of call for many unclaimed strays, providing a centre for the rehabilitation of dogs and helping to find new homes for those recued and nursed back to full health.
Rehoming manager Lee Hitchman said the amount of stray dogs needing a new home was outstripping the financial resources available to cope.
“Vets fees in particular are so expensive these days,” he said. “Without such generous donations we simply couldn’t carry on our work, seriously jeopardising the lives of hundreds of dogs. It’s thanks to these donations, our supporters and continual fund raising that we can make a difference to those dogs lost or abandoned.”
