Margaret Green Animal Rescue's big day in 2015 means great opportunities for caring sponsors
Margaret Green Animal Rescue is the oldest and largest animal welfare organisation in Dorset.
"We rescue, care for and rehome all types of animals which have been abandoned, abused, neglected or are unwanted. More than 1,200 animals including dogs, cats, horses, donkeys, goats, pigs, sheep and birds are rescued each year.
We receive no government funding and rely heavily on public support, fundraising and sponsorship. We provide food, shelter and veterinary care (vet bills on average can be £100,000 per annum). We neuter, micro-chip, flea and worm where necessary and always spend time on rehabilitation for each animal before they leave us.
Aims and Objectives
Rescue unwanted, abandoned and ill-treated animals
Offer care without compromise
Provide care for animals when owners can no longer do so
Rehome animals into caring loving homes
Offer ongoing support to new owners after rehoming
Provide lifetime care to animals when rehoming is inappropriate
Assist many local councils to look after their stray dogs
Rehome over 1,200 of all types of animals each year.
Neutering to restrict the breeding of unwanted pets
Vaccination to restrict the spread of infectious diseases
Not putting any animals to sleep unless incurably ill, in pain and distress or dangerous.
2015 is an exceptionally special year for us, as it will be our 50th Anniversary and, to mark the occasion, we are launching Margaret Green Day on 20th May, which would have been Margaret Green's centenary birthday".
We hold various events, for which we offer corporate sponsorship. These currently include:
50th Anniversary events
Margaret Green Day
Major Donor Event
Family Animal Activity Day
Annual Companion Dog Show
Family Fun Day
Sponsorship opportunities in print
Newsletter: this is biannual, and as next year is such a special year - being our 50th anniversary - both will be special anniversary editions. Please get in touch for further information.
