ONCE A YEAR
In recent months we have been inviting canine professionals and dog lovers to join The DOG HUB ONCE A YEAR Scheme. The responses so far have been marvellous - our sincere thanks to you all.
For newcomers to the idea, what we are asking for is that just once a year, people offer their services (or goods) to The Dog Hub free of charge. (We are not seeking cash donations.)
So if you are a vet, trainer, behaviourist, groomer, dog accessories supplier, dog-sitter, dog-walker etc, you may be able to help us. A behaviourist may, for example, do a one-off assessment in a complicated case where we believe an external consultant's expertise is required. Or a vet may offer a one-off vet exam when we have concerns about a dog's health status and the dog is not registered elsewhere. If you are not a canine professional, you could still help: for example, if you have a car you might consider helping someone get their dog to the vet - or back - just ONCE A YEAR.
If you think you may be able to support the work of The DOG HUB by joining this Scheme, please "Contact Us".
Offers of support under this Scheme will only be called upon when there is a genuine need, and all contact with donors will be through The DOG HUB administrators.
When The DOG HUB bids for funding for the year 2011-2012, we will be able to offer an estimated value of the ONCE A YEAR Scheme towards match-funding. So any offer of help from you, no matter how small, would be a great help.
So far we have had the generous offers for:
- a routine vet check
- advice from a veterinary nurse
- a training weekend in the countryside
- a grooming session
- transport to and from a local vet
- a one-to-one dog training session at their home for
someone who cannot travel
- telephone support regarding training issues
- telephone support for bereavement
- one "jack of all trades"
- dog training supplies
