KIT WILSON TRUST

Here is Eunice presenting the cheque for £1500, raised by the club, 2014/2015, to Kit Wilson Trust for their Aged Dogs Accommodation, at the BDTC AGM.

 

 

Below is a picture of Eunice presenting Andrew Simmonds from AHT with the cheque for £1050 raised by BDTC in 2015/2016 with a copy of the letter sent by AHT.

Dear Eunice

It was a pleasure meeting you at Crufts on the Sunday and to have received the wonderful cheque from Billinghurst Dog Training Club’s fundraising in 2016.  What an honour to receive your valued funds in this our 75th Anniversary year!! 

With our sincere thanks again for supporting our canine work and I shall look forward to updating you on how the funds were utilised in due course.  We will ensure they provide a huge benefit towards furthering the health and welfare of dogs.

Very best wishes.

Andrew

Here are Eunice, Pat and Graham presenting Stef Ransley from Wadars Animal Sanctuary, with the cheque for £1500 raised by BDTC in 2014/2015.

The donation has been reserved for current dog care.

This means it will be used for kennelling and veterinary fees for a number of four-legged friends in their care, to go toward some of the treatments that can be costly (scale and polish, neutering etc), and is not always covered by the adoption fee.

NEW LEGISLATION

Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 all dogs in England, Scotland and Wales must be microchipped and registered from 6 April 2016.

Breeders must ensure puppies are chipped by the age of 8 weeks old and cannot transfer ownership until this is done. Owners, or the ‘keepers’ of dogs are required to ensure their details are kept up to date on an authorised microchip database. This onus is on the ‘keeper’ of the dog to register the details of any new owner, or report if the animal dies. Police and some Local Authority employees will be issued with microchip readers to ensure this law is enforced. If a dog is found not to be microchipped then the keeper may be served with a notice requiring it to be chipped with 21 days and face a £500 fine if they don’t comply with the notice.

Only vets, a nurse or student acting on a vet’s directions or a person who has been on an approved training course may implant a microchip. The only exemption to registration is if the dog is a Certified Working dog or where there is a medical exemption and a vet has issued a certificate.
