Ellen’s Rescue Remedies Appeal
A mother and a friend of rescue told her child about the plight of the strays and what rescue means and the following is the result …
“When we went to pick up Sydney [a Rescue Remedies dog] up to foster him, my daughter Ellen asked lots of questions about strays and as I’ve always been honest with her I told her the truth – no sugar coating – understandably she was very upset and tears before bedtime.
I felt bad and maybe shouldn’t of told her quite so much but maybe that’s half the problem in this society.
We are seen as a nation of animal lovers through our rose tinted glasses and perhaps if we all told our children the truth the next generation of animal owners will more a lot more responsible.
Anyway through the tears and the ‘Its not fair’ and ‘why can’t WE have them all?’ questions she decided to raise some money for the rescue. As her big love is books she has chosen to do a sponsored book read starting Monday 28th March for 7 days.
Please email and share this link with everyone you know and help her raise the money to save more dogs.
In the words of Ellen ‘Thank you……………………very much”!
Ellen is 7 years old – she made this film and we hope you are able to support her.March 24, 2011 at 9:43 pm #114964

An update from Ellen’s mum Lorraine:
“Ellen has done brilliantly and has read 34 books in 7 days! I’m very proud of her! We’re doing a little ’thank you’ and a ‘total raised’ video after school today so I will post that when it’s done.
We also have a larger local newspaper coming round this evening to get her picture for a write up that will come out on Thursday so hopefully we will get some more pennies from that.
Thanks for everyone’s support and here is the video …
