We have many other ways you can help our hounds.

We have a wish list of items we really need for the rescue dogs,  Its really simple to order and the hounds would really appreciate some of the yummy treats and chews on offer.

Pet Connection Wish List

Collect Stamps

Did you know that you can help raise funds to help us save lives by collecting used stamps? Simply cut them from the envelope leaving 5-10mm around them and post to:
Lurcher SOS
PO Box 6107
Stromness
KW16 9AB.

Stamps that are from places like Jersey, Guernsey, I.O.M and Alderney etc, are regarded as foreign, so will need to be kept with all other foreign stamps and separate from GB stamps.

Thanks to Citadel Stamps.

Financial Donations

Lurcher SOS is a small rescue and we are supported entirely by our volunteers and donations. Donations are always needed and very gratefully received no matter how large or small.  It all makes a difference and helps us to continue to help the many Lurchers, Greyhounds and other sighthounds in need. You can donate by Paypal using the Donate button above.

You can also send a cheque or you can use Internet Banking.  Please contact us for our administration addres or our banking details if you wish to donate in this way.

Shop Online with easyfundraising.org.uk

Easyfundraising.org.uk helps charities, schools, sports clubs, community groups, and other good causes to raise money when their supporters shop online. It works in asimilar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a donation for your cause instead.

Once you join easyfundraising.org.uk you can go to their ‘find a cause’ page and support Lurcher SOS. Each time you shop online with one of their listed retailers, you raise a donation for us. It’s as easy as that.

For more information please see How Easy Fund Raising Works.

Fundraise

You can help us to raise funds by taking part in an event such as one of our online auctions on our friendly forum and/our Facebook page; joining in one of our street collections, holding a boot fair, coffee morning or sponsored event or even by making collars, coats etc.

Home Check

Help us approve potential homes for our hounds. No experience is necessary as full advice and support will be given.  Home checkers are desperately needed throughout the UK.  Dogs may have found a possible permanent home through their details being advertised on here or on Facebook, but can go nowhere until a home check has been carried out and paperwork completed.  Without these volunteers, dogs will linger in longer in foster unnecessarily, taking up valuable foser space for other dogs needing to come into Rescue.

Transport

We are always in need of people willing to help transport dogs into rescue from a pound in a different part of the country; collecting a dog who has perhaps just arrived in to the country; into a foster home or even taking a dog for veterinary treatment in the case of an emergency.

Donation of Goods

We always need donations of items for raffles and auctions. So if you have any unwanted items why not contact us.

eBay

We often have articles for sale on eBay.  All sale proceeds go to help the Lurchers, Greyhounds and other sighthounds in our care.
