Dog lovers help to boost vital funds for canine search and rescue charity

Search and Rescue cheque

DOG lovers from across the region have helped to raise vital funds for our chosen canine charity.

The National Search and Rescue Dog Association (NSADA) have been presented with a cheque for £1,000 – thanks to the support of Just Dogs Live visitors this summer, who paid £2 for their own dogs to accompany them to the event.

It is hoped the money will go towards the purchase of ‘Doggles’ – eyewear for dogs to protect them against debris dispersed by a new design in 14–tonne low flying rescue helicopters.

Ian Strange, head of internal events at the venue said: “This year’s Just Dogs Live was a fantastic success, and we are delighted with the amount of money raised for this wonderful charity. None of us know when we or someone we know may need their help.”

Paul Durham, NSARA national fundraising officer, added: “We are very grateful to the event organisers and of course the members of the public who have helped to raise this wonderful amount of money. The Doggles are a relatively new product, but we are looking to buy at least two pairs for each of our mountain rescue dogs and give them as adequate protection against dust and debris as we can.”
