Rescue Centres Responsibility?????

I have been trying to help rehome boxers with Lorraine who is (not for long)the co ordinator of Scottish Boxer Rescue,

Lorraine has been trying to run this "charity rescue centre" on her own with no help from anyone else from (SBR) yet they have the audicity to keep the money from the dogs rescued and they charge 150 per dog , they wont help with vet bills, transport, kennelling nothing, they want to dictate how lorraine rehomes and the amount asked for?????

I am absolutely raging and so is lorraine& Jacquie so we have decided to set up Scottish Boxer Welfare in the new year

Our Policy is a good homes is the most important requirement for adopting, and while im not stupid i know there are costs involved with rescuing i feel people who could adopt can`t because they don`t have that kind of money any donations that they could afford would be more acceptable.

As you can guess i am writing this while still very angry

Just wondered what you all think, yvonne
Am I being too naive?

Sorry Yvonne, I didn't quite get where you were coming from there?

Are you planning on setting up your own charity rescue for boxers in the New Year?

I dont understand the politics or the way any of these rescue centres work I am afraid, having never come in contact with them? Are you talking about having volunteers who would foster boxers until new homes could be found or setting up a centre where they could be kept happily until rehomed? Is Boxer Rescue taking money and not looking after the dogs?

Sorry, sounds like you are extremely mad and having questions thrown at you wont help!!

Karen :sad:

Re: Rescue Centres Responsibility?????

Sorry karen i was ranting on a bit, yes we are going to set up a rescue, and everything that goes along with that, basically we will be doing what scottish boxer rescue isnt doing and they do nothing,

they were asked for help in rehoming boxers that people had entrusted to them, (the ones that we are trying to rehome now),not one person from sbr was willing to help with anything but they want to dictate the rules and regulations to the us the people doing all the work.

i don`t know the politics either but i will soon learn.

in short SBR doe`snt want to help rehome boxers but they want control over the funds brought in by the rehoming we do lorraine told them tonight to shove it and that there will be a new charity rescue called Scottish Boxer Welfare run and managed by the people who are actually doing the rehomimg.
Lorraine will be setting it up, jacquie will be helping, and me too , that way we know the money thatcomes in will be spent on caring for and rehoming boxers.

We will be looking to set up a list of foster parents , we won`t have kennels , and most impotant we will put good loving homes before any amount of money.

Do I make any sense now? probally not:screams:

yvonne

yes they do have the funds and lorraine could`nt get access to it for vets bills etc, she did ask for them and they said they would pass them on they have`nt and no one even the treasurer says she doe`snt know where the funds or how much funds there was.
i don`t know what they are doing with the money i do know they could`nt help one of these boxers, thats why im so angry.

Re: Rescue Centres Responsibility?????

Ok I think I understand??!!

I would think that setting up a charity would involve a lot of work - could you get government funding or a lottery grant to help?

It sound like you are all pretty determined and if that counts for anything, you will succeed beyond your dreams!!!

Where abouts in Scotland are you?

Re: Rescue Centres Responsibility?????

Hi Everyone
I know I have been away for a while but you weren't forgotten.
I have just taken in a 1 year old red male. My house is hectic at the moment as he hasn't been socialised with other dogs. ( alot of work to be done ) he is also not house trained!
Anyway I am 100 percent behind Yvonne and we will make it work. Anyone that could help with fostering until a new home is found would be more than welcome.
Sorry to be so short but my daughter is being a bit demanding at the moment:smash6: Will be on for longer tomorrow and "dish the dirt"

Lots of love Jacquie ps have a happy crimbo!!!:spinsmile:

Re: Rescue Centres Responsibility?????

I may be able to offer advice in this department if you need it. During my absence from this board I have been setting up a bull terrier rescue with some internet colleagues, so have quite a bit of experience now in this sort of thing. We mainly use foster homes, but have on occasions used a boarding kennel which is well known to use, as an emergency stop gap. I am personally in charge of raising funds, it is nearly a full time job as there are always vets bills to pay and it is amazing at how quickly they add up.
if you would like to see the web site I have made it is
[counturl=18] here[/counturl]

We do however have a good relationship with the existing bull terrier welfare and support one another if needed, although we run entirely separately.
To get lotto grants you have to be a registered charity, to be registered there is an awful lot of red tape and money can't necessarily be spent where you need it, so be careful!

That is fantastic, you could save us time pointing us in the right direction, it would seem it is very difficult to register a charity in Scotland so advice and help would be greatly appreciated, thank you yvonne

In some instances if you contact the Dogs Trust [formely NCDL] they can/will help towards neutering - always worth a try if you explain to them what you are trying to do/achieve. Good luck.

Thanks for all your help, keep it coming,
the website will be up and running next week, account has been set up so funding is now going direct to boxerwelfare rather than Scottish Boxer rescue, goodness things move fast.
We are in the very early stages of this venture but we hope to cover all that is needed to run a very good service to needy boxers.

On behalf of Boxer Welfare Scotland:loveya:

Hi Yvonne,
the politics of this are way above my head, but I wish your cause the best of luck, espescially because I am bias toward Boxers, but makes me think of all the other creatures in need, in our country, let alone worldwide. Let us trust in the "Butterfly Effect"

Re: Rescue Centres Responsibility?????

Jill i am shocked at the amount of boxers being put into rescues i could`nt even begin to think of all the other animals, i would crack up (i am too much of a idealist ,I want everyone and every animal to be secure & safe with lots of love)

Can`t save them all but try to do my bit,
1400 boxers came in to rescues in scotland last year alone, i think the national figure is approx 6500 and this is only one breed.SHOCKING

Give Daz a big kiss from me yvonne
