Janes Cake
Jane Powell has been baking again!

This time her cakes have raised, (or is that self raised)?
a massive £171.50 for RIN.

Jane is not all that well and she has found herself in Hospital for a while.
Whilst we have every sympathy Jane, we need you out here selling tickets and baking,
and of course we are missing you too. So you had best get better soon!

Seriously though, we all wish you very well Jane, very soon.
We are all sending thoughts of 'wellness' to you...


Val Creer


We had the sad task of extending RIN's condolences to Dave Creer on the loss of his wife Val.
She was one of our breed's champions and a great friend of RIN.

Her funeral took place at Pentrebychan Crematorium in Wrexham

on Wednesday 13th December. The service was lovely.

Dave had requested that donations in her memory should go to Rottweilers in need. We would like to thank

him and of course everyone who donated towards the total £380. Toyota, Dave's employer, have added an additional £50
to the total making it £430. How considerate of them.


We must thank the Rottweiler Club who welcomed us to their open show

A Huge amount for which saying thank you seems inadequate but non-the-less


Do you remember, earlier in the year Lorraine Day and the Rottweiler discusion group donated a large sum
to RIN? you can refresh your memory by clicking here. Well the group have done it again!

This time an even larger amount (£270) was donated to help the Rotts in our charge, this is
so unexpected and so very welcome and we send our heart felt thanks to the group for their consideration.

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

And the result for November;
(It didn't quite make the record books with 362 tickets sold)

362 numbers sold £724
Winner was S Adams Number 436

£482.67 raised for 7 different dog rescues

So the love spreads out to cover more rescues
with Jane’s new method, looks like it works well. 

Good Job Jane!

Decembers target rescue is Many Tears Rescue;


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;

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.
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.


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;


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!




We had a really good time here, the draw raised £112 and Kim and Lily pulling
the famous cart loaded up a very credible £123.32 an excellent result.

Our thanks to The Midland Rott club for allowing us in.

The next Show we're at is BRA in July we'll post more detail and put up links nearer the time.

What do you think of when you hear 'CARIAD',

I live on the Welsh border and it is a Welsh term of endearmentand it means Love or Beloved.

But if you take it as an acronym, its used by an organisation against any cruelty to dogs including puppy farming

Care And Respect Includes All Dogs.

You can read their story here (Click the red letters)

Also click on this Logo for their charter


As a rescue organisation, we have the fallout from these puppy farms to contend with,
Cruelty, bad breeding practice and profit seem to be their only watchwords. Reading
CARIAD's account of the Carmarthenshire debacle only strengthens our resolve to be 'on side'
with the philosophy CARIAD live by.

As a group we agree with and applaud your efforts. We wish CARIAD every success.


Donations, Aren't we lucky!

Dog Of The Year 2016

Have given us the enormous amount of £1500 So a huge thank you goes to

The Eastern Counties Rottweiler Club



And the year is going very well so far for donations;  we received another princely sum of £257 from Lorraine Day
It seems last July, Lorraine and Janet have thought of a way to make small donations count even more.

In the first 18 months, they raised £5732, no small feat! Several groups as well as RIN have benefitted from this.
If you would like to be part of this worthwhile effort, contact Lorraine on Facebook...
This is what Lorrain had to say..

"The donation scheme was set up by Janet & myself within the Rottweiler Discussion group.
The idea was to hopefully have lots of people donating a small amount such as £1 a month which on its own
wouldn't be much, but collectively would amount to a decent donation to rescue each month.
Since starting in July 2015 we have managed to raise £5,732 which has been donated to a different rescue each month.
Mostly Rottweiler rescues but also a few all breed rescues who have taken in a Rottie needing help.
I sincerely hope to continue and have more people join the scheme".

Lorraine Day

Thank You & well done for a Good Job !
