Three Counties Dog RescueBack to News
In the early hours of 19 January, a fire destroyed the premises in Bourne used by Three Counties Dog Rescue. Not only were the offices and stores destroyed, but, sadly, three dogs were killed.
As a charity, Three Counties receives no funding other than donations and they were desperate for bedding for their animals, to replace everything lost in the fire. A collection point was set up in the Priory Office and numerous bags of items were donated by both staff and students.
On Friday 30 January, Mrs Kate Armstrong and Mrs Philippa Head, from Priory College, visited the charity to hand over a cheque from the school for £250.00, together with the donations received.
Mrs Gyll Mauchline, who is the charity’s Chairman, was absolutely delighted. Even without losing all their stores and equipment in the fire, Three Counties needs to raise approximately £150,000 to meet their annual expenditure. Mrs Mauchline said that every single item and penny donated will go towards their mission, which is “to accept, care for and find homes for unwanted, lost and stray dogs”.
