Sponsor an Oldie

If you are looking for a special present for a dog lover, or to treat yourself, please consider sponsoring one of our oldies 🙂

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 sponsor dog car sticker.

Sponsor a Dog by Paypal

Our suggested minimum donation for sponsor dogs is £15 per year, but of course more is very welcome and appreciated. If you are making a donation by Paypal, please click on the Make A Donation button above, or send the payment to paypal@oldies.org.uk. Please forward your PayPal receipt to Susan at sponsor@oldies.org.uk with all the relevant information, as detailed below, in order that your pack can be issued.

If you would prefer we not print a pack for you, we would be happy to email the sponsor letter and certificate to you instead, but we can’t of course include the car sticker that way.

We only post sponsor packs within the UK. If you are outside of the UK or would like to gift a sponsor pack to someone who is, we are very happy for you to sponsor one or our oldies, but please note that we can only email the sponsor pack (minus the sticker of course), or post it to a UK address for you to send on at your cost.

If you would like to make your donation by bank transfer, please email Susan at sponsor@oldies.org.uk for the details.

If you would prefer to pay by cheque/postal order, please make the cheque payable to Oldies Club and send it to our treasurer at:

49A Kinross Close
Cinnamon Brow
Warrington
Cheshire WA2 0UT

Please include a note advising that this is to sponsor an oldie and include your name and postal address along with an email address so that we can contact you. It will take us longer to process a sponsor pack when the donation is received via cheque, so we don’t recommend this payment method for packs you hope to receive quickly.

When submitting your information, please let us know:

if the sponsor pack is for a present (please state Birthday or Christmas if applicable).

the name of the dog(s) you wish to sponsor.

the name(s) of the recipients as you would like them to appear on the sponsor certificate/letter (including surnames if you wish them to be included).

the name(s) of the person the gift is from (including multiple names if applicable), as you would like it to appear on the sponsor letter.

where you would like the pack to be sent (please advise if this is your address or the recipient’s). Please include an email address for the recipient too,  if possible.

If you are sponsoring an oldie as a gift for a child, please state this in your information, along with the approximate age of the child, so any text can be amended accordingly.

You are also welcome to sponsor a dog for yourself, of course :-)

We aim to despatch the sponsor pack as quickly as possible, but please advise when making your donation if the gift is required for a particular date (and what the date is) and we will do our best, depending on the timeframe of course. Please allow at least 7 days for despatch if possible.

Sponsor a Dog by Standing Order or Bank Transfer

Make a regular monthly or quarterly donation to sponsor a dog by standing order, or a one-off donation by bank transfer here. Please include YOUR contact email address, even if this is a gift for someone else, when submitting a form to us, so that we can contact you if we need to. Please ensure that your completed form is submitted to your bank, where appropriate.

Please submit all sponsor related information by email to Susan at sponsor@oldies.org.uk. You can also contact Susan with any queries relating to the sponsor scheme.

Thank you!

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.
