We currently have a large number of dogs in kennels awaiting foster homes/forever homes. Does anyone have any dog coats (any sizes) that they don’t need or their dog won’t wear because our kennel dogs would be really glad to have a little extra insulation in this cold weather. If so please send send me a personal mail and I will give you the address details.
Appreciate the help with this one.January 10, 2009 at 2:55 pm #107272AnonymousGuest
a brilliant way to get coats is to ask on freecycle so anyone here who wanted to help could ask on their local groups for dog coats and send them to RR 🙂
also you can put a plea out on TRPD – if you dont have a rescue rep on there, PM me asap and i’ll do the plea for you as long as the rescue agree thats OK as it is quite complicated to use 😉
a third suggestion is if you have some nice warm blankets, you can make basic coats very easily 🙂
lastly, ask ask ask !! [email protected] are usually good for an item or two maybe they have a couple of “christmassy” jumpers left over that you can use as warm coats ?

You are always a mine of info Piglet! 😀
We have done Freecycle. Forgive my ignorance, but who/what is TRPD & P&H?

[email protected] – pets at home, i’ve got best results going in myself and asking for the manager and taking headed paper or something official from the rescue 🙂 maybe try your local one and ask your fosterers to try theirs?
TRPD – the link to their forum is http://petcraftproject.proboards24.com/ I’ve just looked and Jane is your rescue rep for RR and TR. I have added you a plea to this thread ….
p.s. I hear you guys are splitting off the staffies in 2009 to their own special site – hope all goes well !!January 10, 2009 at 3:53 pm #107275
It’s official … you are angel! Thank you!
Not splitting off, just they will have their own dedicated site too!January 10, 2009 at 4:11 pm #107276AnonymousGuest
also, wholesale / warehouse places and manufacturers are all worth asking 🙂
ask about seconds, prototypes, returned damaged goods – take whatever you can get and repair 🙂
Claire xJanuary 10, 2009 at 4:18 pm #107277
Yep, have already mailed the manufacturers – am on the case! ;DJanuary 13, 2009 at 2:25 pm #107278AnonymousGuest
GOOD NEWS !!
TRPD have agreed to *DONATE FREE* 1 coat per every 4 coats sold in their current sale !!!!
They need to know an address to send them to and also what sizes are in need most and how many dogs are in the kennels ?
Can you let me know please 🙂
also – anyone who wants to buy a coat … you’ll be helping to put coats on kennel doggies 🙂

This is the thread (you’ll have to join i think) which tells you about rescue remedies.
This is the thread to look at to buy coats for your dogs (and then donate your old ones to RR please !!)

You are an angel (can’t find an emoticon for that)!
Saw the threads yesterday – Jane sent them to me – bloody marvelous!
The sizes we need are for general terriers i.e. Lakelands/Patterdales/Jack Russells/Westies and for our Staffordshire Bull Terrier – likely to be a range of small/medium depending on how they come up. Last count we had about 31 dogs in kennels.
The address is:
14 Chase Road
Thank you very much Claire – the RR team are all very grateful. Hate seeing cold doggies in kennels.

great – have added address / numbers and types of dogs !
now …. the more people who buy the better 🙂
so ….. just tell everyone – see if your foster homes or volunteers might treat their own dogs to a coat (and if its to replace an old one get them to donate that too!!)
how about e-mailing round your “homed” dogs to see if anyone would like to purchase a coat to help put coats on your kennel dogs ?
just post … everywhere 🙂 if you nosey round the TRPD forum there are pictures of their coats (they are really nice – hand made in a HUGE variety of styles – honestly even makes me feel i need coats for mine and they’re in a centrally heated house most of the day lol!!!!!)
must go – harry is outside playing with W&B and its almost dark !!!
