9 Top tips to help with a busy summer at your rescue:
1. Ask the local shoe store to save you the lids from childrens' shoebox lids for disposable food trays. Larger lids can be used as disposable litter trays.
2. Make friends with local hotels and B&B's. Periodically they replace all bedding and linen. Make sure they know you are happy to collect and they may well give it all to you.
3. Make friends with local sports clubs and gyms and collect unwanted tennis and other sports balls for animal toys.
4. Make friends with the airlines and collect the flight blankets when due for renewal.
5. Place a donation bins in your supermarket and vets tills/sales counter for customers to buy one tin,one toy extra to give to your rescue.
6. Make friends with your local businesses or groups with similar aims and bulk buy everyday products such as stationery.
7. Set up an Amazon Wish List and let all your supporters know you have one.
8. A 'virtual' dog show can often be more cost effective than a real one! Use social media to gain votes and donations for the best photographs sent in by your adopters.
9. Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows.” Helen Keller (who is said to have owned both Pit Bulls and Akitas!)
