**WE HAVE OUR FIRST FULL YEAR END FIGURES BACK FROM THE ACCOUNTANT 2014 - 2015 AND WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH OUR AMAZING VOLUNTEERS & SUPPORTERS WHERE ALL YOUR HARD WORK FUNDRAISING & DONATING HAS GONE**
We spent £27,389 getting bulldogs at risk out of bad situations.
We then spent £29,557 on vet fees to make sure they were in as good a health as possible and spayed/neutered before they went to their forever homes.
We spent £6,345 on Dog Sundries eg food, supplements, bedding, leads etc
We spent £326 on postage
We spent £377 on stationary to print all our forms etc that each foster carer gets sent in a pack for each dog they look after
We spent £4,540 on Sundries like gazebos for events, having calendars made, banners, wristbands, pens, leaflets etc etc
We paid our volunteers [that claimed it] £1,438 on fuel costs.
And we spent £1,372 on behaviourists to help any of our dogs that were having issues and needed it, whether they were already in a home or still in foster care. Our ongoing commitment to all our EF dogs never ends.
That was a Grand Total of £71,344 paid out.
We received £23,093 from rehoming fees
We received an amazing £72,294 in donations from the fabulous auction group, event fundraising, merchandise and from kind kind EF supporters and as you can see every penny of your money was put to good use.
That was a grand total of £95,387 coming in.
Our bank account therfore had an excess of £24,043 to carry forward to the 2015 - 2016 period which is almost 5x the amount (£5,187) that we carried forward from 2013 - 2014.
We rescued a total of 177 bulldogs in that 12mth period.
We have managed to stay solvent and productive simply because of our amazing team of coordinators /volunteers / foster carers and all our loyal EF supporters. We hope to continue to do what we do best to help Bulldogs find the homes they deserve and we hope you'll all continue to be there with us every step of the way in the coming year.
Thank you to each and every EF'n person from the bottom of our hearts and a Happy New Year from us and every bulldog sprawled out on a sofa this year because of you!
