Become a Dobie Mate
- Become a ‘Dobie Mate’. We would love it if you would consider making a monthly donation to our charity (no amount too big or too small) and so become a Dobie Mate. The benefits of being a Dobie Mate include:
- move to the top of the waiting list if you have submitted an adoption application;
- a thank you gift for joining…don’t get too excited; 😊
- access to our Dobie Mates Facebook page where you will be the first to know what is planned, new or going on…a little bit of inside information, along with some training tips and support…ask away;
- Free Facebook live sessions: Q&A sessions and/or presentations from top dog trainers and dog sport competitors…and anyone else we can rope in who can help guide us to a better relationship with our dogs;
- Reduced rates for entries into our events.
To become a ‘Dobie Mate’ all you need to do is set up a standing order at your bank marked Dobie Mates, payable to Lincs Dobermann Rescue, Sort Code: 30 98 90 Account No: 15963168 and then confirm the start date to us by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive a link to join the Dobie Mates Group. Please remember to complete the Gift Aid Declaration if you are a UK taxpayer and your donation will be increased by 25% at no extra cost to you.
Did you know that when we take a Dobie into our care it can cost as much as £800 to provide the medical attention they need and to provide their food, kennelling or foster homes until they find their forever home.
Our Dobie mates are a wonderful and special group of people and their support means so much to the Charity and Dobies. The Charity can also claim Gift Aid on these donations which is a huge bonus for us.
Meet Penny (aka Miss Pendle)
Penny was a stray; underweight (around 19 kilos), scabby and under socialised and so at first she was put into foster care to help improve her health and assess her a little further. Eventually she was rehomed with a lovely family who also had a neutered male Dalmatian.
Things were very difficult for the new adopters in the beginning, Penny was causing issues with the Dalmatian and her ‘off’ switch was hard to find so they brought in a fabulous trainer and very quickly things started to improve…she remains in the home to this day. They helped her find her ‘off’ switch and the issues with the Dalmatian have been resolved.
Quote from the Adopter
“Penny weighs 27kg now, on the 21st March she weighed 21kg, so it’s going on slowly but surely. She is such a happy girl and loves being our new Meeter and Greeter at work”
