Charity Tandem Skydive in aid of Beagle Welfare
Beagle Welfare was set up in 1979 and its primary focus is on finding permanent new homes for unwanted hounds as well as educating the public about beagle ownership. They are currently engaged in talks with the Home Office about the possibility of them taking in beagles from laboratories that have reached the end of their usefulness in terms of testing and so on. They also offer help, advice and support, some of it financial, to owners all over the UK.
They have two part time employees who their our rehoming centre and everyone else volunteers their time. They are currently re-homing around 300 beagles a year and, as you can imagine, their running costs are enormous. They include utility charges and maintenance costs at the centre, wages, dog food, veterinary fees and travel expenses, to name a few.
As an animal charity they receive no Government funding and rely solely on the fundraising efforts of their dedicated and very hard working supporters. Fundraising activities range from collecting 5p pieces in a jar to a huge variety of demanding physical challenges: John O Groats to Lands’ end by bike, walking 100 miles of the West Highland Way in five days, Three Peaks Challenges, Tough Mudders, skydiving, triathlons, marathon running and walking the Munroes are just some of them.
