RotaKids visit their chosen charity

This charity needs almost £200,000 a year to care for the dogs and cats that end up there. Their mission is "to accept, care for, and find homes for unwanted, lost, and stray dogs". ​ RotaKids co-ordinator, Emma Desbruslais explains "It is fantastic for the RotaKids to visit the charity they have chosen to raise money for as it really gives a sense of impetus to their fundraising efforts. So far they have raised an amazing £341.00 through facing their fears of tarantulas and public speaking! This money will be going towards the medical treatment of a dog called HoneyBun who will soon be taking up residence at Three Counties Dog Rescue, as soon as she is well enough to leave the vets. The children and I were very touched when we were shown videos and picture footage of HoneyBun being rescued by the amazing volunteers who work here. We left the charity with all the children keen to raise money to help HoneyBun."  

The RotaKids were met by their sponsors, The Rotary Club of Bourne who accompanied them on their trip, they then began their visit by listening to a talk given by the volunteers who explained all the amazing work they do as well as their strict policy on who they will re-home their dogs and cats to. The children were then taken to the yard where they had the opportunity to meet with three extremely friendly dogs: Billy Boy, a tail-wagging, treat-loving Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Mia, a lovely Shar Pei who has recently undergone expensive surgery for an Entropian Eye condition and a very new arrival, who has only been

at the charity an hour longer than the RotaKids, a beautiful and docile Saluki cross who had an extremely gentle nature. All three of these dogs were amazing with the children and deserve to have owners who appreciate their friendly and gentle dispositions. The RotaKids are hoping that when they revisit later in the year to see how HoneyBun is doing that the three dogs they had the privilege of meeting have found the forever homes they deserve.
