  1. Sorry to sound like an ‘Appeal-pooper’. I remember this from before, (last year?) and had left Hugh a comment previously. The Dogs Trust hounded (no pun intended) my poor old Mum for the latter years of her life. She paid to sponsor a dog every year for twenty years, (starting during the NCDL days) but that was never enough for them. They constantly wrote to her, or telephoned her to ask her for more money, even though she told them she was living on the State Pension. When she finally agreed to increase her monthly payment, they waited three months, then started on her again.
    One day, she was told that if she didn’t increase her payments, some dogs might not get all the help they needed. That left her in tears, and I arrived at her house to find her worrying about how to find more money to send them. So I complained, and was told that DT use a company to fund-raise for them, and they were sorry and all that, but they really needed lots of money. She carried on paying until the week before she died. But since then, I am afraid that I won’t give them anything.
    If you feel this comment is inappropriate, Mary, feel free to delete it. But I think people should know what they can be like.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • No, I’m not going to censor your comment, Pete. It’s a dreadful story. I had not heard about the Dog’s Trust acting this way though I’ve heard similar stories involving other charities. Seeing your mum so distressed is something which will stay with you and I quite understand you not wanting to support the charity. I hope they have tightened up their appeal and fundraising process.
