The Edward Foundation - Safe Travel for Bulldogs
When bringing rescued Bulldogs into our care, they often have to travel many miles to available foster homes and then on again to their Forever Homes. Often these dogs are sick or stressed. Their safety and comfort, and that of our transporters, is paramount, and this project will make a difference.
July 2014 - December 2014
The Edward Foundation
Under the Welfare of Animals (Transport) Order 1997, you must not transport an animal in a way that causes, or is likely to cause, injury or unnecessary suffering to that animal. It is also important that a dog is suitably restrained in a vehicle so that it doesn’t distract the driver or injure them if the vehicle stops quickly (UK Highway Code).
Our Project will solve the potential danger of unnecessary suffering to an animal and injury to drivers.
To purchase equipment for use during the transportation of our rescued BullDogs
Activities» We will ask for donations of equipment and money
» We will run many fundraising events across the country.
We will use our Facebook and Twitter accounts, our website and our attendance at dog shows to demonstrate how the equipment helps our Bulldogs in transit.
The project will ensure that all designated transport volunteers have suitable equipment to enable them to collect dogs (often sick, stressed or injured) and to comfortably and safely transport them to safe foster homes wherever they may be.
If people do not respond to our project we will be unable to purchase new and up to date products which in turn may compromise both dog and driver safety.
We will respond via social media, our website and by individual email.
