Forget-Me-Not Appeal

The current fence has stood for nigh on 30 years, so was elderly when we arrived 7 years ago. We take security extremely seriously here, and recently we have reached a point when we have had to stop using the field for security reasons. We can no longer patch the patches.
Dogs give so much, and we have long wanted to honour and commemorate them in some way. In discussing our need for the new fence, the idea of the Forget-Me-Not Field just fell into place.

You can help in 2 ways:

1 – Donate £25 to enable us to buy a fence post, with the option, at no extra charge, of having a 4″ x 2″ brass plaque engraved with your choice of message and affixed to ‘your’ post. The wording may be a memorial to a pet, a celebration of a pet’s Birthday or ‘Gotcha day’ or any other beloved memory you wish.

2- Donate £10 for us to buy 2 metres of fencing, with the option, at no extra charge, of having a small 38mm brass circular tag engraved as above, and affixed to a separate, free standing post. This post will be positioned in such a way that the brass tags will catch the rays of the setting sun, which bathes the field in its glow. The sizes of the plaque and disc are shown below.

66 fence posts and 200 metres of fencing are required to re-fence the field, and allow it to be back up and running as a safe and fun space for exercise, stimulation and exercise the 30+ kennel dogs currently waiting for their forever homes..
