We realise some of you would like to order sponsor packs as last minute Christmas gifts and very much welcome your support. However, please note that sponsor packs ordered from Sunday 19 December 2010 onwards are likely to arrive after Christmas.
** Sponsor an Oldie this Christmas! **
If you are looking for a special and unusual Christmas present for a dog lover, please consider sponsoring one of our oldies.
You can read about the sponsor scheme here and see the oldies currently available for sponsorship here. Donations can be made via PayPal, bank transfer or cheque. Please bear in mind that payments sent by post can take a lot longer than usual around Christmas time.
Oldies Club dogs generally become sponsor dogs due to ill health. We place the dogs in long-term foster homes, where the dogs receive all the veterinary treatment they need, along with lots of loving care from their foster families, with the charity covering vet bills for the rest of the dog’s life.
If you sponsor an Oldies Club dog for a loved one, or indeed as a gift for yourself, the recipient will receive a sponsor pack, which includes a sponsor certificate and a personalised letter from the sponsor dog.
We currently have a large number of sponsor dogs, including small dogs such as Trish the Chihuahua and Tiny Charlie, through to larger dogs such as Lab type Charming Charlie, Smiling Sal the lovely lurcher and the beautiful Tag.
Sponsorship starts from a minimum suggested annual donation of £12, though of course more is very welcome and appreciated.
*If you wish to sponsor an oldie for a Christmas gift, please ensure that the donation and all sponsor information is with Oldies Club by Saturday 4 December 2010. Please bear in mind that our volunteer will aim to send packs by second class post by the last posting date of 18 December, to keep her costs down.*
