As a Registered Charity, you know that your donations, gifts and legacies to Poodle Network UK will be used for the welfare of Poodles.
We keep our administration costs to the absolute minimum by using electronic modes of working wherever possible.
Our foster carers, home checkers and transporters are very generous but we believe that their time is more than enough of a donation (though a lot of them would disagree and generously donate far more than their time). However, as a matter of course, we provide food for the foster dogs from our food sponsors, Activul. We pay for mileage or fuel (depending on the wishes of the volunteer). We also cover all vet bills for the dogs in our care. We pay for flea and worm treatments, leads, collars, bedding and more. We do not have any paid volunteers or Trustees/Patrons.
In some circumstances where a dog has a pre-existing condition that we know of, and it is moved into its Forever Home, we have a commitment to paying for the dog's medication for life.
We undertake to move dogs swiftly, safely and efficiently into their Forever Homes. Our success rate is 99%.
To do all of this we need money. We run facebook auctions, a buy it now page and raise funds on our main facebook page and our website. Your donations of money and auction goods are extremely important to our work; we cannot provide the care and service we do without it. We will make the most of any money you donate and you, in turn, will improve the lives of needy poodles.
