Let’s Save Lives
Valgrays Border Collie & Animal Rescue is run by Val Phillips and a team of dog lovers who work exceptionally hard to rescue and rehome as many homeless dogs as possible.
As we are run by volunteers, we are completely reliant on the kind donations made to us throughout the year and do not receive any government funding. As a small charity, we do not have the size and scale of other better-known dog charities to run nationwide campaigns to raise funds, but are looking to raise awareness of our charity to increase the level of donations we receive.
You can help by either donating money direct to Valgrays, or by fund raising in any capacity you can think of (see below for ideas!). It is of course excellent if you do come up with ideas to fund raise; but (there is always a but isn’t there!) ideas are brilliant, but if you have one, how about making it a personal project to see the ‘idea’ through from thinking stage to producing the money?
Oh yes, that means actually doing the fund raising yourself or getting a group together to do it. Sadly existing volunteers are already up to their eyes in it .. so what do you say Valgray Owners (and supporters) are you up to the challenge?
We greatly welcome donations of doggie items that we can sell through our table top stall.
The rescue dogs in our care always need items like bedding (vet bed, etc), collars, leads, harnesses, head collars, etc, dog coats (for older rescues), treats, toys & unused veterinary medication too.
We are now registered with Gift Aid. If you make any donation, please enclose a note stating that you are a UK Tax Payer. If you do this we can reclaim the Tax amount on your donation – so we will gain an additional sum ontop of what you donate. Thank you.
