It would help us to make sure your wishes are carried out.

& Fundraising for 2022

Please scroll down to see all the current news and upcoming events.


Autumn Jabs are due and there is

Still no sign of that fat lady singing yet!

But Yet Another new varient cometh just for Christmas


Hang on to your masks and keep your distance!!

you know it makes sense....


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




You never know, if you were to win you might be able to afford your fuel bills!


Where 10% of their pot is for 'ADMIN'

And it's not Jane's Lottery, she takes NOTHING~ZILCH!

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


You can only be Lucky with a 2022 December lottery if you PLAY!

keep nominating RIN on your ticket and push a prize in RIN's direction,

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

November was

A total fund of £7834 !

Its creeping up... watch out Mr Winalot Camelot!

£2 a ticket and £1K prize.


for December??

November's Winners were J Calladine and L Shuttleworth


Funds are awful short for folk to donate to rescues,

but we keep hoping you can still have a go!...

The remainder after the top prizes went

to the nominated rescues so...Thank You Very Much!

The Named Kennel for November 2022 is:-

Bark Art

And can we have a round of very heavy applause for Jane!

Thanks again Jane on behalf of All the rescues you've helped...

The work involved must take her hours and all for free!

Plus, she is still collecting and sending TONS of food to the needy Dogs.


So a very sincere THANK YOU Jane!


Let's Keep this fund raising going PLEASE!

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

the Prizes come out of the total collected and everything else goes to rescues.

You can watch the draw on facebook by CLICKING HERE.

(only available during the draw)

What happens is a multiple of £2 is donated, and each £2 donation has a number allocated.

At the end of the month, one winning number is randomly picked and will receive 25% of the pot,
The prizes are split like this: The first (the ticket) now takes 25%, 25% goes to the rescue of the month.
The remaining 50% split between shelters and rescues getting more than 30 votes.
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 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...

don't forget to mark your entry for RIN.


It is run solely on Facebook. (search for 'The doggy lottery' on Facebook)
