    Default Exciting announcement - Rupert's Fund

    Thanks to all the wonderful support we have received, and a lot of work behind the scenes, we have some fantastic totals to announce:

    Entry fees from the online photo competition and sale of calendars 941.45

    This money will be divided equally between Irish Cavalier Rescue and Rupert's Fund.

    They will each be receiving 470.73


    Sale of the Tommy Christmas cards raised 82.55
    and the Rupert's Fund recipe books raised 98.94

    The auction finishing last night raised 500

    Donation for Sonny appearing on the Calendar Cover 20


    Therefore the total for Rupert's Fund is
    1172.22


    A HUGE thank you to everyone who supported our efforts, and a special to Tania who donated all the costs of producing the items and postage for sending them out, as well as being a fantastic support to me personally

    to Penny and Clare for judging the calendar entries, to everyone who entered photos, to all who submitted recipes, to everyone who donated items for the auction and to you all for buying everything - calendars, Christmas cards and recipe books are all still available.

    I think the most important thing about Rupert's Fund is that it proves that breeders and "pet people" CAN work together, many breeders have been very supportive of this initiative, giving large donations, also some are very kindly asking for donations for Rupert's Fund when they home an older dog or puppy...so it's not JUST the "little people" who have achieved this - it's EVERYONE!!


    [I hate the expression "pet people" but there doesn't seem to be a better one...]


    So a BIG to the breeders who have been supportive to date, and we really hope that many more will help too - the project provides them with information for their breeding programs so they are able to make informed decisions and follow protocols, as well as hopefully enabling us long term to improve the health of our beloved breed.

    Nicki, this is the most amazing news - what a brilliant way to start the New Year and it's so much due to you and Tania and all the hard work you put in. You must be exhausted....but hopefully thrilled too!




    Will email you in a couple of minutes.
