Like any other Charity, we rely on people to believe in what we do, to trust that we will manage our funds effectively and to help finance our operations.
Our operation is efficient and the support of our founding partners keeps our operating costs especially low.
Nevertheless, our 2016/17 operating costs alone are forecast to be £24,000.
Through the financial support of our founding directors, partners and other supporters, upon launch in May 2016, Wag & Company had raised nearly half of the first year’s operating costs.
We are actively seeking more people, partners, donors and sponsors to get involved and to help us to make a big difference in our region:-
The need is substantial and to make a real difference, our goal is to have volunteers in every community across our region together making thousands of visits to older people each year many of whom are desperately lonely, missing human company and the friendship of a dog.
It is achievable with a little bit of support from everyone in the North East, dog lovers, dog owners, individuals, businesses, large corporations – raising money, volunteering, sponsoring us, taking part in our walk, financing outings and the operating costs that enable them.
We have a flexible approach…
