Rough ‘donation’ guide per animal, please also explain what this involves:
Top donation asked is £230 for a neutered bitch down to £120 for an older dog.
Why do we ask for a donation?
• A dog that is free to a good home is of no value – our Labrador’s are priceless.
• As a deterrent to impulse buying
• As a deterrent to those who may be trying to acquire a dog for dubious purposes.
• To encourage commitment to the dog and to dealing with any baggage they may come with
• To help cover the cost of kennelling the dog
• To cover of the cost of worming , flea treatment and vaccinations if not already done
• To cover the cost of micro chipping and Premium registration of your dog in your name and with Labrador Welfare remaining as the Rescue organisation. NB Your details can be updated at any time at no further cost.
• We charge slightly more for neutered dogs as this is an actual saving to you of between £100 and £200 depending on the vet used.
• If your dog is unneutered we will give you £50 towards the cost of the operation on production of a receipt from your vet.
