Funds raised from the Sponsored Walk will be used for our Chance of a Lifetime programme. In conjunction with other charities we have been rescuing dogs from council pounds since 2003. To date almost 10,000 have been saved from certain destruction.
Assisi operates 2 transfers to the UK mainland each week, rescuing a minimum 40 dogs and pups. Prior to departure the dogs are all vaccinated and checked by a vet to ensure they are fit to travel and are transported in a fully air-conditioned ambulance. The transfers are organised and managed by volunteers. Fuel and ferry prices mean each trip costs Assisi £400 with a total expenditure last year of £88,000.
To Save the Life of a Dog and give them their Chance of a Lifetime you can:
Make a donation (each £20 saves a dog)
Fund a transfer of 20 dogs (£400)
Join our Chance of a Lifetime Walk and get yourself sponsored for the walk.
