NESSR relies entirely on donations and fundraising to carry on it's work across the UK. It costs on average £150 to £200 to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome the dogs in our care. We also have a number of long term residents who can not be rehomed for one reason or another so they stay under the care of NESSR with one of our foster carers.

If you donate please fill in a gift aid form (Click on Gift Aid Logo) and send it to us, Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, we get an extra 28 pence from the Inland Revenue, helping your donation go further. This means that £100 can be turned into £128, just so long as donations are made through Gift Aid. Imagine what a difference that could make, and it doesn’t cost you a thing. So if you are a UK tax payer and want your donation to go further, Gift Aid it.
Thank You From all the NESSR Team.
Why Are NESSR Rescuing Spaniels
It is an unfortunate fact of life that whilst arguably among the most cuddly of puppies, some young Springers find their welcome disappears as fast as their youth. After Christmas, Cynthia Turvey of NESSR receives a nightmare number of calls from people whose puppy from Santa has turned into the dog from hell. Most of the members of NESSR have spaniels themselves and are absolutely passionate about the breed and that’s why we exist.
But it is not only the young who suffer. In today’s modern society an increasing number of older dogs have to be re-homed due to their owners divorcing, losing their jobs, emigrating, ill health or allergies suffered by family members. NESSR will never turn away a neglected or unwanted spaniel and because our book becomes quite full at times, we also operate a short term fostering service in addition to the re-homing.
Why Is A Donation Required
NESSR do various things to raise funds including Car Boot Sales, Stalls at local Shows, On-line Auctions but the revenue from these events will never meet the full cost of the rehoming. The out of pocket costs of providing homes for any number of rescues at any one time are significant. There are travel expenses for collecting dogs in need of a rescue space. There is also the cost of feeding the dogs during the time they are with NESSR. Some of the dogs are in short and long-term foster homes – this still means we, the Rescue, have to pay any Vet Bills, which may occur during that time and supply food. Our Vet expenses are our most significant outlay and whilst we try to help by accepting donations from grateful people who are taking a rescue spaniel. We ensure that all of our rescues go to homes spayed, neutered, inoculated and wormed as we believe that is the best start we can give them in their new home. The dogs may also need medical treatment for any current illness before they can be re-homed.
