On 25th May, Epsom Canine Rescue will celebrate their 25th anniversary. Their principal role is the rescue and re-homing of unwanted dogs in the local area, homing between 40 and 60 per year.
As a small rescue charity, they are often contacted to take elderly dogs or those suffering from a medical condition which require long term fostering and lifetime financial support, and currently have six in their care.
All activities are carried out on a purely voluntary basis and financed solely by self-generated funds, sponsorship of one of their elderly dogs and donated contributions with work being carried out by handful of dedicated volunteers in their spare time. Of course, fundraising is very difficult at present, with all this summer’s fundraising events unable to take place.
Epsom Canine Rescue have been running online events and even a virtual dog show but would really appreciate any help you can give. Donations of food or toys can be made to volunteers in Epsom Downs or Bletchingley and they have a JustGiving page CLICK HERE
