SPONSOR A DOG
One of the best ways to help the Podencos at IHR is to set up a recurring sponsorship in any amount you choose for one of our pods. Recurring donations are a huge help to offset the day-to-day expenses of caring for our rescues. We also have our SPECIAL HOUNDS that due to medical or social issues, may be with us for a long time while we work them until they are ready for adoption.
How to sponsor a dog
Simply enter the amount that you wish to donate each month in our sponsor form below. Once you have set up your sponsorship, please contact us to let us know which dog you have sponsored.
Every dog benefits from a sponsor but every so often there are some dogs that need a bit of extra care .
THE LOCKDOWN LITTER
During lockdown in March 2020 a British couple travelling in a campervan kindly rescued two female podencos believed to be mother and daughter (pictured below) . The girls were nicknamed Fats and Bones as one girl was chubby and one skinny however it soon became apparent the fats was not fat but pregnant . The wonderful couple now stranded due to lockdown took the girls in and Fats (now named Lady) gave birth in April to eight healthy puppies aptly named THE LOCKDOWN LITTER under the watchful eye of Bones (now named Lola). The girls and all the pups stayed in the van being cared for until we could take them into our care which was Mid June.
All pups are now reserved for their forever homes and will be ready to travel in September. Lady and Lola will be ready for their forever homes soon and we will be looking for a home for these inseparable girls together.
How your sponsorship could make a difference
- 10 Euros / month provides flea and tick protection and de-worming to keep a Podenco healthy while they wait for adoption.
- 35 Euros / month covers the food bills for your podenco.
- 60 euros / month pays for one podenco to board at the Animal Hotel. This is such an important part of IHR, allowing us to take in more rescues than we could accommodate at the main facility.
