Wellingborough Dog Welfare (Wellidog)


Fund Raising

Fund Raising

We are extremely lucky to have some amazing and dedicated supporters who do the craziest things on behalf of our Wellidogs 🙂

Raising funds is a never ending task as many of the dogs that come to us are strays who often require veterinary attention 😦

…But we have never been known to back away from a challenge, and our supporters are always up to something to help; from online auctions and events to raise awareness… to personal sponsored challenges, such as parachute jumps, abseiling and Iron Runs!

Throughout the year we also organise and run many ‘fun’draising events including some fantastic dog shows! All proceeds from these events are used to take the very best care of our beautiful dogs whilst they patiently wait for the perfect forever home.

We would love to see you there, so bookmark our dates for your diary page, come and join in, and have a ‘fun’tastic day with us whilst helping us raise some money!

Every single day there are always more dogs that need rescuing and we simply can’t do it without your help… So, if you enjoy a challenge and want to help us then please don’t hesitate to contact us.

You can help us by donating your time and doing whatever you can to help us raise money to care for these dogs…

Or you can donate whatever you can afford as a gift through PAYPAL

Or via Bank Transfer:

“We wouldn’t be able to help these dogs without people like you… From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for your continued support for these dogs who just want to be safe and loved.”

OLLIE Makes Some New Friends at Barclaycard Whilst Raising Funds for Wellidog

Many of you may have met OLLIE who is a very handsome Estrellas Mountain Dog, and honorary Wellidog and Fundraising mascot? If you haven’t had the pleasure of cuddling this gorgeous boy yet, he is often spotted winning hearts and sniffing out loving homes for his Wellidog friends with his hardworking and dedicated Mum, Linda (our very own Christmas Cracker) around the county.

On Tuesday (12th April) Linda, Julie and Zena took Ollie to Barclaycard where he got to hang out with one of his football heroes; Cobblers player Paul Corry! He’s been impressed ever since and loving the good weather as he can brush up his ball skills just in case he’s invited again 😉

We cannot thank Barclaycard enough for everything they do to support us. They made us feel extremely welcome and provided us with our own stand for the day. We managed to raise £113.60 which will go towards helping our deserving and very special Valerie, and the costs of her ear operations 🙂 We had such a lovely time and met some equally lovely people.

Thank you for your ongoing kindness, support and hospitality 🙂

With Love and Licks from Ollie and his PR Team; Linda, Julie and Zena ❤

Gemma and Jon’s Iron Run for Wellidog Raises a Whopping £535!

When it comes to fund-raising we quite simply have THE BEST supporters 🙂

Gemma and Jon successfully competed in the Iron Run at the weekend, and finished with (thankfully) no injuries other than a few scrapes and bruises 🙂 and their magnificent effort means they have managed to raise a whopping £535 for Wellidog!


But… For anyone who is wondering why anyone would be crazy enough to put themselves through it, their inspiration is this gorgeous fella here…

Meet Billy, an ex-Wellidog who went to live with Gemma and Jon temporarily, and never left 🙂

In Gemma’s own words…

“He was so poorly when he was at Wellidog, and scared. Naomi did an amazing job with him and she thought he was going to die. I’d been walking him and I couldn’t leave him – so we fostered him, and the rest is history! Failed fosters!”

We do love our failed foster parents 😉

They have since gone on to foster two other dogs who have been placed with lovely families, and continue to support Wellidog on a daily basis.


Barclaycard are Back at Wellidog… And They’re on a Mission!

This September saw the return of the Barclaycard Volunteers and they were on a Make-Over Mission 😉

They spent the day dog-walking, decorating our office and the inside kennels; as well as sorting out the food cupboard, weeding, and just generally making everything ship-shape and presentable!

We cannot thank them enough, and neither can Rusty who looked extremely happy and content after the extra long walk they gave him 🙂

Thank you Barclaycard for all your hard work… From everyone at Wellidog (and especially Rusty) ❤

Rescues Pull Together to Ensure the Safety and Future of Four Horrifically Malnourished Little Boys…

A few days ago we was asked if we could help one of 4 extremely malnourished pups. Not one of us expected to see such forgiving dear little souls on the brink of complete starvation! Many tears have been shed but now with the help and support of 5 different rescues these boys have a much happier future ahead.

Reds Rescue is currently caring for Pablo, a little boy of approx 9mths old weighing only 6kg! Pablo is quite poorly but he has every chance in the care of Red’s. Once fit and healthy he will be going to Nearly Home Crusaders for re homing.

Barclays Renovation

We would like to thank Cathy Johnson and Barclays Bank for the support they have given us by raising money for our charity. They have raised money by doing numerous fund raising activities such as the Waendel walk and holding stalls.


The money they have raised has paid for us to line our outdoor kennels with perspex, helping to keep our dogs warmer this winter.


They also have enabled us to bark our walkway. The Barclays team helped with these renovations and also have been coming for the last couple of months to walk our dogs.

Waendel Walkers

Thank you to our Volunteers Harriet, Millie, James, Martin, Sam, Pam and Chris who all did the Waendel Walk… with all the money they raised going to the dogs! They took some of our lovely dogs with them and cars were on stand-by for when the dogs got tired… So well done Star, Sarge, Jenna, Lea, Minnie and Monty… The humans couldn’t have done it without you..
