To protect our dogs against economic risks we have founded the non-profit association Sleddogassociation RY and registered it with all the relevant authorities. The aim of this association is, step by step, to buy all the dogs from our company and to take care of them, no matter what the future may bring. This is obviously a huge task, since – if one wants to be prepared for the worst – more than 500 dogs need to be taken care of.
As a first step, an officially registered lease for the dog camp was requested and granted. In this way, the association will always be in a position to house and care for the dogs on camp.
A second step will be the acquisition of the dogs. This will require a realistic evaluation which must then be legally validated. The association will then loan the dogs to our company – with the undertaking that we accept all costs for their upkeep.
If you share our opinion that our sledge dogs are not just working animals, to be discarded as cheaply as possible at the end of their active careers, then we would be more than pleased if you would become a supporting member of our association. Our motto is: A dignified life for old friends.
The registration fee for a general sponsorship, including the first annual subscription, is 50 Euro, plus additional annual fees of 30 Euro.
If you would like to sponsor a single dog, this is possible for an annual fee of 80 Euro. By way of thanks, you will receive a certificate with a photo of your “godchild”. Please send us an email indicating which dog you would like to sponsor so that we can check he is not already being sponsored by someone else.
Every cent will be invested in helping and taking care of the dogs.
