Much needed funds have been added to AGAIN by the Rottweiler Discussion group, via Lorraine Day

And we are so grateful and thankful for another £322 to go towards looking after our charges.

These regular donations are so welcome and needed. While we are on the subject of thanks and donations,

have you checked out the doggie lottery recently? Jane Whittaker is still working so hard

compiling the results and distributing the received funds. Last Month saw her collecting £3470

which gave a first prize of £1145.10 go to J Furber on ticket numbered 1186: Which of course means

twice that amount went to various rescues.

Its an easy job to buy yourself a ticket just click here for a shortcut,

and your luck might well be in for prize in excess of £1000!


NB: I have just added up what Jane has collected and donated since the inception of her brilliant idea,

which was back in September 2016. This wonderful lady is responsible for donations of very nearly

£60,000 (£59235)

for animal, (mostly dog) rescues being that much more able to look after their rescues.

I am moved to clap for her for about an hour!!!

Well Done Jane!

What I failed to mention, and in retrospect I definitely should have, is that the £60K was what was given

and didn't include the prizes. So in fact, the total that Jane has collected is nearer to




There is a pet shop in Morecambe

on, 'Yorkshire Street', a proper named street!

Its Run by one Ray Headingly and his family. For the past five or six years they have sent regular donations to RIN

and no mean amounts, so we should very much like to thank "Wagtails Pets" of the said Yorkshire Street for all the help

and support happily given, clicking on the red text will take you to the web site. Ray sells 'just about anything for dogs, cats

and other pets'. There is also a grooming department, Wagtails Grooming,

which has been doing it's thing for over 30 years - so it must be good!

Thank you very much Ray & Tricia.

WOW AND WOW AGAIN!!! Nay, Thrice WOW I say! (Thats Three Times).

£1000.00 Has been raised for Ordy.

The auction was kicked off at short notice

and Sharon's chasing about, collecting,

distributing and posting in a very short period has done its job

WONDERFULLY. Well done that lady!

Thank you all so very much for your contributions,

donations and bids.


I Hate this bit, but it needs doing.

We have had many donations in memory of a great supporter of Rottweilers,

Debbie Rowell

Debbie Rowell

Thank you for your thoughts for Debbie.

We will continue to honour her memory.


That Page Allen...

She's been getting all light headed and boldly going

ahead with her donations again, (sorry couldn't resist)

this time she's donated that lovely head of hair and

we got £600 for it ! Yes she's had it cut nearly to the bone...

'Hair Raising'

Page  Page

Thank you for the photo, Page!!

Thank you very much indeed for the hair!


Thank you seems a little inadequate at the moment

but we really do need to say Thank You Very much to

some folks.

Thank you to all those of you who are continuing to keep us going

with those 'oh so wonderful' monthly contributions

to the welfare of the dogs,

we still have to look after them during lockdown.


We just would simply not survive without your very generous help.


For which we are really most grateful,

they came from the Rottweiler Discussion group via Lorraine Day, who regularily donate much needed

and very well received monies, AGAIN for June, wonderfully generous thank you so very much!

and from David Floate of cheetah who matched a donation of the same amount from BRA

Both have donated a very hansome gift of £400, and over £200 from the Rottweiler discussion group

We thank them very much!


Our gratitude has to go out to all the NHS folk and key workers, I would like to extend it to

folk like Sue, Tammany, Joyce and all the volunteers the country - even the world - over for still caring enough

to carry on working, sometimes in isolation, looking after animals of all types, but especially dogs!

The unseen like Jane Whittaker still caring enough to continue working the Doggy Lottery, and

there are loads of people slogging away, usually un-thanked and underappreciated.

If you can spare a couple of pounds to donate to one of the charities - please do so, there is a huge need

at this time. Have a go at the doggy lottery, who knows, you might even win a few quid?


We are so very grateful to the kindest of people who are still donating via monthly contributions.

We understand completely those of you who have had to tighten your belts and cancel, but

please know, we are very very grateful for past donations and hope when this is all over you can

reinstate the really necessary and appreciated donations that we are so dependent on.

but whatever you do: -



We have received a donation from the Rottweiler Discussion group via Lorrain Day, of £114.

This was part of the proceeds from a Raffle for a break in a holiday cottage, our sympathy lies with the winner

who will be unable to claim the prize for a while at least!


Update on Bella!

Another thank you to Gill, here is her update:-

Gill has now had Bella “Fostered” for some 18 months and under her guidance Bella has developed from a frightened, scared of her own shadow and very limited activity dog, to a Rottweiler that happily steals fresh baked apple pie from the fridge!
In an effort to curb these roguish nocturnal activities, her nights have been spent in the safety of her crate. And the fridge door re-enforced with a leaning chair!
Other traits that have also emerged are,  a liking for cushions and their covers, these should not be on furniture but in a much more comfortable place – the floor, she also has an unfortunate taste for the toes in Gills Boots, Gill has decided leaving shoes/ boots unattended and in reach is something that no longer happens.  Oh! and she also learned how. to open her crate door – Hey Gill have you tried a padlock!!!
Gill Reports:-
Her wanderlust has also made a worrying comeback, disappearing became the norm for her, although she always came home.  We had to leave the house during one of her jaunts and we were really worried about doing so, but it had to be done, on our return she was sunning herself on the lawn very perturbed at not being able to get in the house!
She has acres to roam, all agricultural, although there are livestock in some areas, fortunately she is still scared by them and will not approach.  This is known to the famer and he knows she will not interfere with any of his stock.
She pokes about in all the hedgerows and with the recent wet spell, She was coming back caked in mud and needing a bath.  We eventually found every bolt hole in the fencing, only to find Bella has mastered jumping from a standstill over fencing – including the barbed wire.  A friend told us of one of their Rottweiler bitches that was also an escapologist, but an electric fence put paid to the ‘great escape’.  We have a fencer for the sheep, so it got deployed!  On her first encounter, the tick from the battery box seemed to remind her exactly what it was and she kept her distance, but out of earshot of the ‘click’, and she attempted a jump, but the fence made her squeal – no persuasion was needed for her to come into the house.
Now we have a completely different dog, her eyes have a different look as can be seen in the photos, she comes when she is called and has really started to respond to us.  She will still flinch to an unexpected hand lift, or a newspaper page being noisily turned.  It will take a long time – if ever- for her to forget her past trauma, but she is at last enjoying her new life and she is actually a pleasure to have around.

Bella Bella1
Gill has promised to keep us updated on her (Huh Hum……..)“Fostered Rottweiler”

We are also saying a very big thank you

to Eastern Counties Rottweilers.

East Counties logo

A Large donation of over £2000 has been received for the care of our charges,

so to Keith Robinson and all the members


And I do apologise for the earlier mix up, inadvertently I credited the donation to South West Rotts

I had an attack of the Gremlin Virus and I probably need isolating!!


That Jane Powell has been at it again!

Apparently, at her recent Birthday, she managed - by an undisclosed method/s -

to raise Over £1000!!!

So what does a RIN volunteer do with such a princely amount? She divided it between

Leukaemia UK - in memory of Ann and in gratitude for her her own successful treatment - and Rottweilers in need.

What a great lady!

(Clicking the red text will take you to Leukaemia uk's website)

RIN became a happy and happy, and proud beneficiary of £504.

Thank you very much Jane, here's to the next Birthday!!!


The Great R I N Auction


Our Lovely Sharon Davis has taken on the mantle of.......

"The Auction Queen"

We are always happy to take any items you feel we can auction

Just let us know and we will try to arrange pick up.



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


It's October already! and the 10th Game of 2020 is here!


Well, we can dream!!

Lets try for £5K, and lets keep nominating RIN and push a prize in RIN's direction,

so don't forget to mark it for RIN on your entry.

And the result for September 2020: The number Nine draw of the year with a total prize of £3470

Funds are awful short for folk to donate to rescues, but we keep trying!...
The single winner of a third of the total take was ticket number 1186 bought by J. Fuber

who was awarded a very useful £1145.10......

That was a third of the whole prize money, the other two thirds went to shelters and rescues.

Such a huge amount of work in distribution for Jane.

The Named Kennel for October is getting a third of the total is:-



Let's Keep this fund raising going PLEASE!

Buy a ticket - or two- knowing you have helped loads of animals,

the First Prize a third of the total prize - how's that for a lockdown bonus?


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,
April 2018 for instance, one third went to Rottweilers in need and the remaining third split between the dog rescues that took
more than 20 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
the different rescues that supply help.

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...
