Checkgrr’s is a three year old male who can be a little shy around men, he is growing in confidence everyday but this is something that the staff are working hard on with him. He is a larger male who hasn’t lived with another dog while he has been with us, but we haven’t had issues with him when out walking him around the exercise area.

Due to him being on the shy/nervous side we are looking for an owner who can understand that it will take time for him to come out of his shell and work with him to bring his confidence up.

Due to his nervous behaviour we are looking for a family with older children.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It! Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Merseyside Dogs Home to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Merseyside Dogs Home we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Merseyside Dogs Home to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Merseyside Dogs Home will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Merseyside Dogs Home receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
