As we all know, our four legged friends are so important to us here at East Ruston Cottages and we like to support in any way we can. Each booking made through our site sends a donation to one of our chosen charities. Every three months, we ask you which three charities we should support for that period. It's always so lovely to read all your comments and suggestions, but making the decision is never an easy one!
The three chosen charities for August, September and October are:
FLOOF are a UK based French Bulldog rescue, run by friendly and dedicated volunteers. FLOOF was set up in response to seeing the inhumane treatment of some French Bulldogs. Some of these poor dogs are currently living in horrible conditions, left outside, cold, abused and often denied veterinary care. Please have a look at their page to read some of the wonderful success stories this charity have been able to create.
In October 2016, Spaniel Aid UK became a UK Registered Charity for the benefit of the public to relieve the suffering of dogs namely but not exclusively spaniels, who are abandoned, stray or otherwise in need of care and attention. They provide and assist in the provision of rescuing, rehoming and fostering of these dogs and treat and care for them where necessary. Take a look at their Facebook page for more info!
FAAR are a small Registered rescue Charity in the UK and we help grass roots rescuers in Romania, Cyprus and the UK. All their dogs have been fully assessed in the UK foster Network, and once they are ready for adoption, FAAR promote them to find their forever homes. FAAR strongly believe in matching the right dog to the right home, and they are always there to offer help and advise and a full Rescue Back Up for the lifetime of the dog.
