From time to time events overtake us and we find ourselves searching for a way to help us out of a situation. The Benevolent Fund is there to help any Member to cope during a time of difficulty. You may need to kennel your dog if you have to go into hospital … or during a time when you feel you are being pulled in every direction due to family troubles.
Any one of the three Trustees will be pleased to discuss your situation and it may well be that we can help towards the problem financially by ensuring your dogs are properly cared for during that time. The Benevolent Fund does not pay veterinary fees, but may be able to help in other respects.
Please don’t hesitate to ask … all calls to us are totally confidential and no details are ever passed on.
