*21 December 2016: Please note that the posting of sponsor packs will now resume in late December/early January. We are unable to issue any more packs before Christmas.
Thank you to all those who have sponsored an oldie this Christmas. Sponsor packs were posted ahead of Royal Mail’s advised last posting dates for all those whose donation/info was provided as requested by 5 December.
Thank you for your understanding and helping to keep things as stress-free as possible for our volunteer at this busy time of year.*
If you are looking for a special present for a dog lover, or to treat yourself, please consider sponsoring one of our oldies 🙂
Oldies Club is very pleased to announce that it has introduced a car sticker to the sponsor dog pack! This is a design unique to the sponsor dog scheme and if you don’t have a car, you can stick it inside a house window etc., with the design facing outwards. Future sponsor packs will now include the car sticker along with the existing sponsor certificate and personalised letter from your chosen ‘oldie’ upon receipt of the minimum suggested donation (or more of course, which is always very welcome).
This is our wonderful new car sticker, lovingly designed by Aura, the very talented artist and designer at Animal Portraits by Aura.
Sometimes Oldies Club takes in dogs who, because of the physical or emotional damage they have suffered, or due to terminal illness, cannot be rehomed. In these cases, which have sadly become more frequent, we endeavour to provide long-term foster placements with experienced carers who will ensure these oldies know a loving, secure home for their final years.
To select the oldie you’d like to sponsor, see our current sponsor dogs listed here (please note that only the dogs listed on that page are available to sponsor).
If you decide to sponsor one of our oldies, you will receive a sponsor pack containing a certificate, a personalised letter from your sponsor dog pal (which includes several photos of the dog) and our new sponsor dog car sticker.

If you don’t wish to sponsor a dog – please consider making a donation to our Vet Fund Appeal instead 🙂
*Don’t forget Gift Aid*
If you are a UK taxpayer and you make a donation, please consider completing our Gift Aid form. This enables us to claim an extra 25 pence, from the Inland Revenue, for each pound you donate.
Oldies Club is extremely grateful to those who have sponsored one of our Oldies and appreciates every donation.
Vet bills differ for each dog in Oldies Club care and we wish to make sure that all donations received, can be used in full. Therefore, should the donations exceed the vet bills for a particular dog, the charity reserves the right to use a sponsor donation for another dog in Oldies Club care, if appropriate, rather than seeing your generous donation wasted.
