New! - link to Orthopets

The PAWS Team are delighted that "Orthopets.co.uk" have kindly agreed to make commission donations on any of their mobility solution purchases made via our website or FB page.

Orthopets are industry leaders in custom fabricated veterinary orthotic and prosthetic solutions. Their mobility aids are designed to help dogs with problems ranging from mild joint instability, to paralysis, or missing limbs. 

PAWS volunteers have been using orthopets harnesses and slings from time to time on their own hounds for many years and these products come highly recommended.

Orthopets products are available to fit all shapes and sizes of dog - and they can also provide custom solutions where necessary.

Pedal perfect Tom Perrott pushed himself to the limit this weekend for PAWS and completed the Dorset Gravel Dash!

Not only does this represent an amazing personal goal in Tom's fight for fitness - it also means that thanks to his generosity - and that of his supporters - Tom has raised a wonderful £835 for PAWS! 

Not only did he reach his target amount - he smashed it! Thank you to everyone who donated.

This is well in excess of his original goal of £250 and means that we can buy mobility equipment for Wolfhounds in need - not just for Tom's own region - but for pretty much every region in the UK. This is a fantastic achievement and the PAWS Team would like to thank Tom for his kindness in thinking of PAWS as his chosen charity.

Huge congratulations to Tom for completing the course and a massive thank you to Rosi, "the furry ones" and everyone who has supported Tom throughout his training.

 

Tom's "Tour de Dorset" - just one month 'til push off!

There's just one month to go before Tom Wombat Perrott sets off on his epic two day bike ride, rasing money for equipment for PAWS - South West region.

If you can get to south west UK on 26th/27th May - please go along to cheer Tom on. Start time at The Red Lion, Swanage is 9am for the two day race. Details of the route, including pubs and places of interest, can be found on the Dorset Gravel Dash FB page

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far towards helping him reach his goal. Tom's progress can be followed on our PAWS - events page and on the main Practical Aid for Wolfhounds page. Donations can be made here

Check out this great yellow jersey he's had made for the event. (with thanks to his fellow models for any additional paw prints!) 

Training is progressing well - and donations are coming in!

~ Just a quick update to thank everyone who has so far sponsored Tom's up-coming bike ride. He's already exceeded his original target of £250, so he's going to set a new target of £500! The amount already raised is enough to buy a full body lifting harness, a set of protective boots, a toe-up sling and a ramp! Woohooo!!!! The next target will be to raise enough to buy one of our specially designed stretchers.

WTG Tom - brilliant!!!
