Would you like to be a Godparent to one of our unadopted dogs?
How does Godparenting work?
We have dogs that have been waiting in the Shelter to catch someone’s eye and become blessed with their own home. You can select a dog and treat it as your Godchild, if you are in the area, you can visit, give it love and treats and and help find a home in your area or if some distance away become it’s Cyber Buddy and help promote the dog through the Internet.
How to become a Godparent
Once you have chosen your Godchild, we ask you fill in a form with your details and indicating an amount you would like to donate to their welfare. This can be paid monthly or annually as you wish and there is no minimum amount, whatever you choose to give will be so appreciated.
The Benefits of Godparenting
The first of course is the satisfaction and secondly and without doubt knowing you will be giving a dog it’s own unique and special status and helping to maintain them during their Shelter stay. You will be kept up to date with information of your dog’s progress and photographs will be coming through as well.
We will send you your Godparent Diploma as part of our Big Thank You.
