The donations we have received in Ann's memory have humbled us

We thank everybody for their donations no matter what the size.

Please accept our deep and heartfelt thanks for your generosity.

Here's hoping this does not sound mercenary, but the £7K target is some way off

so please if you are thinking of donating and you feel its a little too late...

IT'S NEVER TOO LATE!

WHAT AN AUCTION!!!

auction

Faced with a near impossible task after Kim's

short notice Departure, Wendy Nutland

stood up to the plate and dug in her heels ( no doubt taking that deep breath) and
just got on with it. With no experience of RIN's Auction she rallied troops, organised
items and raised the huge sum of £1243 towards Harley's Eye operation.

Fantastic effort Wendy and troops. WELL DONE!

We still need stuff, so:-

Any Auction/Stall/Tombola/Raffle items to a RIN member please;

Harley Again

or you can contact Wendy via email by clicking this link.

NEW NEW NEW!!!

"STOP PRESS": EXTENDED END DATE

ALL PHOTO'S IN BY

JULY 23rd PLEASE.....

Guess What - we've followed up on an idea from 'Country File'.

We think all our wonderful supporters should be able to have a chance of a

photo on the annual Calendar so:

For the tiny sum of a nice crisp fiver, you can add your beautiful hound to the pile.

We - (we being the staff at RIN) will sift through them really carefully and pick what we think

are the most deserving to be published on the RIN Calendar. August (Ann's birthday)

will be dedicated to a full collage of Piccy's of her -preferably with a dog(s) -.

Of course these are FOC if you have any you can share (PLEASE send 'em in!)

No photo's will be returned, so copies only,

and identify prints on the back with yours and the dogs name.

if you email any to Sam, please try to keep them largish and in jpeg format

Make sure you identify the dog on the email. Please don't print anything on the photo.

C'mon get those photo's out and send 'em in.

Pay on any donate button, please mark it 'competition',

we'll match the photo to you and mark it paid!

daffs It's SPRINGTIME! daffs

Everything is changing and growing.

We are no exception, our main change is obvious

Not so obvious are the personnel changes.

After many years fundraising for RIN, Kim Cussans is off looking for

pastures new and we should like to thank her for all the effort

and time rehoming rotts and raising funds, Good luck Kim!

But adapt we must, so

Sam Wills is taking charge of communication via the web site

she and Mike will take charge of the annual Calendar - watch for

exciting news about that here!

The Rott Auction which Kim has run over the years,

will now be run by Wendy Nutland. Wendy can be contacted via Facebook

or you can contact Wendy via email by clicking this link.

You will by now be aware that Ann Evans has sadly passed away and we have started a fund in her memory. The Rottweiler club has kicked off the fund with a generous £50 donation. Ann was president of the Rottweiler Club.

Other folk have already donated money to this fund for which we should like to record our sincere thanks.

***+***

We apologise for saying that we would attend Northampton with our stall and goodies.

We are so short of stock that we would have only had 'space' to sell!

If you have memorabilia, gadgets or gizmos, anything to do with Rottweilers

that you are fed up with seeing about your home, let us 'Rescue it' and find it

a good home, in the process we will hopefully extend our rescue funds.

So come on people, have a look about in attics, cellars and in the back of garages and cupboards

there must be something? Let us know, if you can bring it to a show that would be wonderful

or, we'll try to pick it up. If you know a member of our lovely volunteers they would be happy to take if from you.

Go on, have another quick look - please!

We enjoyed the Midland Championship show
So, did you manage to find that little trinket that you never knew you always wanted?

Thank you for coming to see us and all the good wishes, but the biggest thank you is for the increase in funds for our dogs!

2018 MRC

THE MIDLAND CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW
A tribute was paid to Ann. A minutes Silence in her memory followed by applause,
we are so grateful to everyone for this show of emotion to Ann's memory.

People were so very generous on the stand too.
Sam didn't know what was coming when One lady - we dont know who she was - spent £20 on tombola - nearly wiped us out £10 on raffle tickets -
another £10 on tombola and £10 on dog bowls. Her poor son was searching for tickets for ages - had to give him 2 bags to carry it all with.
Thank you so much - you know who you are! Margaret Roath donated a crisp £20 note,
Others were generous with their change asking it be added to Ann's memorial fund, we were so overwhelmed.
Even more folks turned up with bags of stuff for the tombola or to sell, items included a dog guard and books.
A 'guess the weight of the cake' competition was organised and even the two ladies who correctly guessed were very happy to split the first prize!

Sam donated a beautiful metal Rottweiler Weather vane for a raffle prize, and a box of toiletries made the second
followed up by Easter egg prizes for 3rd and 4th.

The Midland Rottweiler Club donated a substantial sum for Ann so all in all it was a very successful day.
The biggest thanks though must go to Sam - especially Sam for organising,
Tanya, Mike and Sharon for running the whole thing at really short notice,
and not only that - they intend doing it all again at Northampton So watch out folks, come see us again there, we can do it all again!!
Sam's comment was she felt like an Amateur trying to fill Ann's big boots - SAM, ANN WOULD BE PROUD OF YOU ALL!

DOGGO LOTTO!

Jane Whittaker Runs a licenced and therefore legal lottery
for the benefit of rescued dogs. It even has a video'd draw!

And the result for JUNE 2018;
£872 in total, the single winner ticket number 305 H Stephens winning £290.67

£290.66 Went to Edina's rescue

AND 6 Dog rescues benefitted:

The Named Kennel for July is:

julu

We did try again to get it over the £1000 last month, and we dropped back just a little bit.

C'mon Folks, Lets try a little harder that magic £1000 is nearly there!

You can watch the draw on facebook by CLICKING HERE.

What happens is a multiple of £2 is donated, and each £2 donation has a number allocated. At the end of the month
One number is randomly picked, the winning number will receive a third of the pot,
last April for instance, one third went to Rottweilers in need and the remaining third to the dog rescue that took
the most votes cast by the players. Don't forget to add your vote when you pays yer money!
The main monthly rescues chosen will alternate between Caki Bravo in Bosnia
and the different UK rescues that supply help to Caki.

From September Jane is trying another format for prize distribution where every Rescue that gets 20 votes or more
will get a pro-rata share of one third of the money. The idea is to give the less well represented rescues a chance,
an even better reason to buy a few more tickets.

Lets see if we can't get RIN up there again...

It is run solely on Facebook. (search for 'The doggy lottery' on Facebook)
SO, how do we get a piece of this action then;

THE PREFERRED METHOD IS
1: By online bank transfer to:
Rescue, Rehab & Rehome for Dogs.
Lloyds Bank
A/c: 15835268
Sort Code: 30 98 90
NO FEES are taken from your donation if you pay this way.
Alternatively;
2: Use PayPal and pay to rescuefordogs@btopenworld.com writing "for the dogs "
in the notes box please so that it can be allocated correctly -you may add your prefered rescue.
3:  As an over the counter payment in a Lloyds Bank branch using the details above.
4:  By setting up a monthly standing order using the details above.
5:  By cheque made out to Rescue, Rehab & Rehome for Dogs and posted to Jane Whittaker.

DON'T FORGET VOTE FOR RIN THIS MONTH when you buy your ticket, AND WE MIGHT EVEN GET SOME OF THE POT TOO!!

You can contact Jane with a PM on FB or use this email address
to let her know which is your chosen rescue or for her postal address;
CLICK HERE FOR JANE'S EMAIL

*WINNERS WILL BE CONTACTED USING THEIR CHOSEN PAYMENT METHOD*

Well, I'm off to do a regular payment, I might get a third of the pot
to buy something nice with or even donate it!

Thank you for a Good Job Jane!
