Sponsor a Sighthound this Winter!

Dara Lurcher SOS Sponsorhound

Dara, who was found as a stray in Ireland. It took a little time to rescue him due to his timid nature

We can all dream of that special festive gift of a new ipad, designer wellies or handbag (maybe that’s just us). But what if you were given the gift of sponsoring a hound in need on Christmas morning? Yes please!

The lovely Dara is the only sponsor dog who will eventually be available for adoption from Lurcher SOS Sponsor Dogs.  This is because he is still a little bit shy and, ahem, something of an escape artist!

Poor Dara is also having a few tummy troubles so it looks as if all this will take a little time to investigate. We are sure he will get the very best care from Lurcher SOS Lurcher & Sighthound Rescue and in time be ready to make his way to his forever sofa.

Lurcher SOS are looking for sponsors to help Dara and Bess, Roisin and Grace who are dogs that all have ongoing health problems and will stay permanently in their foster homes. Each dog sponsorship costs just £25 for the whole year – and could be an amazing present for that special someone who is mad about hounds! Each sponsor will receive:

An introduction letter from the dog of your choice
A 6 x 4 photo of your dog
A fridge magnet with your dogs picture
A Lurcher SOS keyring with your dogs picture
A Lurcher SOS car sticker
A certificate of sponsorship
You will get a 3 monthly letter and picture from your dog keeping you up to date with their news.
A Christmas card from your dog
A birthday card from your dog

If you would like to help look after these lovely souls there are several other ways you can do it. if you are not able to sponsor, perhaps you may be a shopper online? If the answer is “yes” then this could be the answer for you: Simply go to www.easyfundraising.org.uk sign up and chose Lurcher SOS as your cause.

Just email lurchersos@yahoo.co.uk telling them your name, address, which dog you would like to sponsor and the name on your payment. If your sponsorship is a gift they’ll need the recipients details too.

You can pay via paypal to lurchersos@yahoo.co.uk or by card here

Every time you use the easyfundraising tool to shop on line they receive a small donation. Excellent news and easy to do as we go towards present buying season!
