Our Charities


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 four chosen charities for our latest donations of £100 each are:



Bliss Cavalier Rescue

Bliss Cavalier Rescue is a registered charity in England (charity no 1193078) run by experienced Cavalier lovers. We treat every dog as an individual and will always find the best suited home for each one. The dog always comes first.



Ruston Dog Rescue

Rushton dog rescue is a dog sanctuary and rehoming centre based in Somerset, that was founded in 2007 by Cindi Mcneil Regan in memory of her soul mate Timothy Rushton. During the many years Rushton has been operating thousands of dogs have been rescued, tens of thousands!
Along with horses, ducks, cats and the odd small/wild animal. Rushton try so hard not to turn away a animal in need and will always try and do everything in their power to get them to safety.



Dobermann Rescue

In 1967 eight Dobermann owners got together and decided there was a need for a rescue organisation for Dobermanns. At the inaugural meeting they each put money into a kitty and Dobermann Rescue was born. Since those far-off days more than 13,000 Dobermanns have successfully been rescued and rehomed, many being cruelty or starvation cases. Some become victims of marriage breakdowns or house repossessions. But sadly and all to often its an irresponsible owner who hasn’t researched the breed thoroughly and bought their Dobermann for all the wrong reasons.
