Meet Murphy, our Pup & I Guide Dog!

We decided to not only sponsor a guide dog, but make him visible to all of our customers too, as you are helping us to sponsor him - he isn't just ours, he's yours too!

Murphy is a Golden Retriever cross and loves making new friends. He is currently living with his puppy raisers, David & Shirley, learning about the world and commands such as 'sit', 'stay' and 'come'. He'll be staying with his puppy raisers for a year until he is ready to go to the guide dog training school, where he will learn everything he needs to know about how to guide a person with sight loss.
Every 6 minutes someone is told they're going blind, with 250 people starting to lose their sight everyday in the UK (fightforsight.org.uk), as well as 180,000 people with sight loss rarely leaving home, supporting Murphy and this incredible charity, couldn't be more important.

World Land Trust Logo

World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity that protects the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats, acre by acre.

Since its foundation in 1989, World Land Trust has funded partner organisations around the world to create reserves and give permanent protection to habitats and wildlife.

To date, WLT has helped secure more than 2,222,247 acres of threatened habitat in 20 countries.

 Several of our Britians most loved wildlife champions are Patrons on the WLT, such as Sir David Attenborough. Sir David has supported the WLT since their foundation, and has been a Patron from 2003.

The money that is given to the World Land Trust, in my estimation, has more effect on the wild world than almost anything I can think of.” Sir David Attenborough

What are Pup & I Boutique doing to support the World Land Trust 

  • Planting Trees - In 2019, global deforestation reached 64 million acres a year. For £5, a tree can be planted, nurtured and protected. World Land Trust is helping to restore these lost forests. 
  • Buy an Acre -  for £100, WLT partners can buy an acre of land. The WLT believes that protecting land is the best action to ensure a future for wildlife

 

We pledge to donate to plant at least one tree per month, with the aim to raise enough to buy an acre in the next few months.

Keep an eye on this page to see how much we've raised and how many tree's we've planted.

The Retreat Animal Rescue

The Retreat was founded in 1989 which set out to save tormented, abused, sick, injured and unwanted animals from certain death.

The Retreat is a not-for-profit organisation that operates a genuine no-kill policy.  All donations go directly to the welfare of the animals in its care and to those needing help in the future.

Their residents include: ex-race horses, ex-riding school ponies, injured live export sheep, cows saved from slaughter, ex-petting farm goats, injured birds and Christmas turkeys.

Their site accommodates a main rescue center and a wildlife hospital to deal with most animal intakes and emergencies, together with their permanent horses, cows and sheep residents.

The number of animals being cared for by The Retreat is over 1,000 at any one time.

The Retreat offers much needed support to all animals - farmed, domestic and wild. Their aims are to educate the public that all animals need commitment, love and respect.

All the animals are given the time, veterinary care and love they need to recover before being re-homed.​ If a suitable home cannot be found they are never killed, they simply stay at The Retreat for the rest of their lives.

Donations are used towards animal feed, rescue and animal-specific equipment, and veterinary costs, and with 1,250+ animal residents and 20,000+ animals rescued over 30 years, The Retreat is needing an expansion. Donations will also help buy more land to help even more animals in need.
