SBT auction update

THE CHARITY online auction organised by the Staffordshire Bull Terrier Breed Council to raise funds to combat breed specific legislation (BSL) has proved tremendously successful after nearly two weeks of bidding.

As of Day 6 of the auction the total bidding had passed £2,500.00.

20 items had been sold and there were 59 items on eBay awaiting sale.

In addition to the auction, the SBT Online Shop sales proceeds stood at £341.18 and cash donations have been received amounting to £919.00.

The organisers were grateful to have received new donations from Dog World, Pets At Home, Hide & Collars, Sally Mitchell Group of Companies and artist Paul Doyle.

Staffie owner Donna Parker from Bristol completed a 48 hour 'pyjamathon' and raised for the funds with the help of her Staffie, Gunner, who also wore pyjamas for the duration! (See photograph).

A two and a half hour behavioural Consultation with Dr Roger Mugford iscurrently up for auction along with some toys from The Company of Animals.

Organisers Wendy Clewley and Andrina Morton said: "We are very pleased with the support we are receiving not only from the UK, but in addition from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, USA and Canada."

* The auction itself runs from 17 June for 3 weeks and many items can also be purchased from the 'online shop'. The shop will remain open until all items are sold.
