Thank you's must go out for donations, many of whom slip through the net
and we don't get to thank you personally through this medium.
Your donations, no matter how they are presented and of whatever size,
are so very much appreciated. So forgive us if we didn't single you out,
but some of you we have managed to catch........

We have been

absolutely Blessed this Christmas.

Donations have come and are, coming in

that will ensure we can look after the dogs in our care.

You all know who you are, and we won't embarrass anyone BUT,

we have to name and send a HUGE vote of thanks to BRA for a very generous cheque

raised at the Seiger. We knew it was going to be in Ann's Memory and Christmas is a particularly

poignant time for us. The Whole team is very very grateful to BRA and EVERY ONE of the individuals who

so generously

sent donations

Hello Jane Powell - Nice to see Jane in full swing, back baking away at Christmas AGAIN

and raised a princely £280 with those delicious bakes of hers.

Thank You Jane :O)

hollyHO HO HO!!!holly

Our Sharon has raised best part of £1000 for funds

with her auction (£917.96)

A fantastic effort and she did it whilst not feeling so well too!


Just imagine what she has let herself in for when she feels well!

The team takes this opportunity to thank all the

'auctionees' for taking part and buying.


We are also equally thankful to all you lovely people that make donations

and standing orders to RIN, we just simply could not continue

without this support, it is our lifeblood and we are so very grateful to you all.



Hearty Congratulations to Tammany Simpkin

A full range of Calendars produced and on sale in record time

with minimum fuss and an extended range.


holly2020ca;lendar holly


A superb effort has been made to bring the calendars to you

I can't emphasise how much effort has gone into it this year.

Most, if not all the work has been done by Tammany as if she didn't already

have enough on her plate!

Anyway, enough gabble from me. The Calendars are on sale in the shop

There is a better choice this year too, A3, A4, A5 AND a Desk edition so you can show off

your favourite breed on the wall and the desk! Go on buy two! You know it makes sense....

clicking the above text will take you straight to the shop, we know you don't want to waste any time getting there..


**Click here for the January Doggo Lotto result**

and to play this February's game.

holly1xmas leftlottoxmasholly

The doggy lottery is still raising funds for different rescues and still needs your support.

January went down just a little, **£3478**


Follow this link to see results and instructions on how to enter Decembers draw....


Something old.......

Some old Christmas cards have turned up, plus some odds and bits, mugs, key rings car stickers etc..

so we have put them all at reduced prices on the shop for you..

Unfortunately we can’t discount postage, that stays at the mercy of the Post Office!




The Lovely Sharon, Mike and team

have put together loads of goodies for you to haggle over,

yes - you can haggle the price UP for a change... Best price wins the prize.


And its all over... See top of the page for Sharon's wonderful result!


2019 British National Sieger Show

was Hosted by BRA this year!!

We attended and had a good time


Most welcoming and organised as usual!



for your hospitality, we had a great time.

It was a long day for Sam, Nicola and Sam's dad, but grateful thanks to you all.

East Mids Rotts

Sam did some selling and someone offered her money for her Dad!

She declined but again, thanks for the assistance Sam's Dad.

Sam also handed out some new sponsorship forms and had dialogue with friends

and benefactors. She got herself talked into donating one of the

beautiful weather vanes her company makes, which will be raffled, we think at Yeovil

but we will try to confirm that because some of the proceeds will come back to RIN.

A lot of auction items were donated for our Auction Queen Sharon to use at the Christmas Auction too.

Thank you to all the donators. We will keep the items as a surprise,

ooops a couple of photos have fallen onto the page!

gundog  Rott family


This is what we are here for. And what keeps us here!

This is Rufus, You may remember him as Roo, Tina Parsons gave him his forever home

and has had him for a relatively short time.

But just look at the difference she has made to him, Well Done Tina!



"AFTER" with Carrie at 'Hoopers'


Well Done again Tina, and thank you so very much!


And some more news, Sue Tipton is fostering 16 month old 'Reggie'.

He was so badley treated his hearing was damaged, but with the help of veterinary care

and some special 'deaf training' by Caroline Lewis, he is coming along and might be ready for

rehoming. The vets seems to think the treatment could restore some of the loss too.

He has found a friend in a Goat? I really must get a photo!!

So good luck to Reggie.


We, well Sam that is, went to BRA with our stand and met loads of you all there.

We owe your Dad a vote of thanks too!

So Thank You Sam's Dad!


And some of our lovely customers...


Eric had a new collar plus a cuddly toy for being a good Pup.

Sam sold out of a few items and the tombola was busy, together they raised much needed funds.

Gracious thanks to all our super customers and supporters, we can't do it without you

and that thought is always in our minds.

BRA had an activity on our behalf too, selling off old trophies -

the proceeds swelling RINs diminuishing coffers,

so we proffer our grateful thanks for their invitation

and hospitality and funds. As always, a most enjoyable show, thank you again good people.

So look out Warwick and The East Mids Shows where we hope to have a presence

to raise some more for the rescue's welfare.

Don't forget save postage and you may pick up any shop orders from the shows, also

you may drop off anything you have for our various fund-raising activities

prizes, auction items, money's good we'll take that too!!


We're dreaming of a

Calendar Christmas!!

It seems a long way off, but there is a lot of preparation needed for the Calendar.

We seem to have enough photo's, thank you so very very much for sending

in your photo's for consideration.

I was going to send this shot of Rudi in for May;


the bluebells make it the right time of year, but he was being just plain RUDE!

Whatever photo's you think would look good on the Calendar; action, comedic

whatever, we'll pick what we think is good enough, you never know a wintery one

might suit the Christmas card!

A donation with the photo would be nice. PayPal is good via the donation button,

but mark it 'For Calendar Photo'. It won't influence

whether it's used or otherwise.

But wouldn't it be nice to know thats your dog going worldwide on the 2020 calendar?



Landywoods are offering a 15% discount across the board to rescue dogs

their Raw foods diet has been a favourite of RIN's for some time and our link page can take you

to the Landywoods site where you can peruse and order a full Raw diet for your dogs with a 15% discount.

The price list can be viewed by clicking here. you may then save it or print it.

This is the most recent price list (March 2019 ; excel format)


Apologies, Nearly missed it folks, (I do have a good excuse honest!) don't forget the


Midland Rottweiler Club's Championship show

19th of April at Stoneleigh It was a Good Friday out!

We attended with our stand loaded with the usual goodies for your utter joy!

show 2019

(Thats not a guy feeding a Rott in the background, its just how realistic the weather vane is!!)

Sam, Sharon and Gwen attended raising funds selling the treasures,

raffle tickets and generally meeting folk.

Anything you wish to donate, please let us know - we are only too happy to take it from you.

Anything you want to order can be brought to the shows to save your postage costs.


We've received a very useful donation, £440 from David Raynes. David raised the money

by producing and selling his own Calendar with photos of his Rott 'Norman'

Norman looks a bundle of fun and I thought it worth posting his sales pitch since he seems

very articulate for a Rottweiler!


Thank you to David and of course Norman! (Loads of ring experience then?)...


Clare Lacey is in the throws of another OnLine dog show


Its only £1 a pop and there are loads of classes to choose from

You never know you could end up with a CC (Clares Champ)!

Clare is continuing to Feed Funds to RIN from this brilliant idea

So please, lets support her efforts.

They have managed to raise £613 from the online auction, this has been generously

'Rounded Up' to £650 by June Knox. Thank you very Much kind lady!

A Tidy Sum Indeed, as well as Sharon we have to thank Kim Baker Brown and Barbara Greenway

for all their help, and of course all the generous folk that supplied items to auction.

k leftKr


We depend on gifts of items for the show stall as well as the auctions so, cheeky as it may be,

here's the request for more items please.

Any items can be sent in, picked up or delivered, just let us know.

Or they could always be brought to the show itself if you have room...


We have to say Thank you very much to so many of you for your generous donations,

the Christmas period was particulary challenging for us and the funds came into their own.

We have some special thanks for Jane Powell, after a long and stressful illness she is back and baking.

Jane you are brilliant, baking and selling your Christmas range for RIN's benefit to the tune of £290.

Welcome back sweet lady from all of us, we are all pleased that you are so well.

Thanks also to Darren Tucker, your donation will go a long way sir!

Clare Lacy is also deserving of applause, thank you for your donation from the

proceeds of another 'on line' dog show, let us know when you are repeating the show,

we will give you a mention and maybe even boost your entries.

Thanks also go to Pets Forum Community for a 'Secret Santa' Donation of £45.

And huge thanks to The Eastern Counties Rottweiler Club, The Dog of The Year has again been

very generous to RIN with a nice fat cheque.


The 2019 Calendar 's have now all been sold,

THANK YOU so very much for your Patronage.


Please Donate any prizes you might have for us to use on the Rottweilers in Need stand

which we take to as many shows as will have us.

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 is February & the 2nd Game of 2020 is here!



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 January 2020: The first draw of the year
The single winner of a third of the total take was ticket number 802, M. Nilsson, who won £1159.34

the other two thirds went to various dog rescues.

Such a huge amount of work in distribution for Jane.

The Named Kennel for February is:

"Devon Dog Behaviour"


C'mon Let's try to get the fund over the £5000 for the next draw of 2020!

Buy an extra ticket knowing you have helped loads of dogs,

the Prize could be £1600+ - how's that for a 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
and the different UK rescues that supply help to Caki.

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 you 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, the Dogs AND the Gulls Thank you for a Good Job Jane!
