Davies donates £3,00 to DOTS

Davies Veterinary Specialists has donated £3,000 to Dogs On The Streets (DOTS), a charity that provides help for dogs belonging to the homeless community.

Dogs On The Street (DOTS)

DOTS is a volunteer run not-for-profit charity and operates mobile weekly street “Stations” across the UK, which provide food and dietary advice and accessories such as coats and bedding. The service also helps to create pathways for owner rehabilitation to help them overcome mental health issues.

Davies walking challenge

Members of the Davies team took part in a team distance challenge for National Walking Month in May and Time to Talk Walk for World Mental Health Day in February. They also took part in a recycling scheme in the practice. Mars, the parent company of the Linnaeus group which Davies is a part of, also donated money to Linnaeus for animal charities requiring help during the pandemic.

Michelle Clark Founding Director of DOTS said: “We are so grateful Davies for this generous contribution, especially given their determination to continue to fundraise for us during the constraints of the COVID 19 pandemic. Their donation will help provide many of our Dogs On The Streets with the care and support they vitally require via our charity. Our work has been ever more important during this difficult year and the jackets, bodywarmers and cups will be well-received.”

Fundraising plans for 2021

The team at Davies Veterinary Referrals are now planning for new projects, and will be fundraising for CHUMS, a Local Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing Service for children and young people in Bedfordshire.

Tim Richardson, Managing Director of Davies said: “While the pandemic certainly made fundraising more challenging this year, we are very proud to have been able to make a considerable donation to DOTS to support their excellent work. We also hope our donation of jackets, body warmers and cups will give some comfort and warmth to dog owners who are living in difficult circumstances.”
