Dog Aid Scotland (DAS) is a small, impactful and committed charity established in 1956. Following the appointment of our first CEO last year, we are now embarking on our new five year strategy to establish a firm place in the minds of dog owners across Scotland. DAS promotes responsible dog ownership through a number of programmes and schemes – the flagships being the Neutering Voucher scheme – which last year provided funding for over 400 dogs to be neutered thus preventing unwanted or unexpected puppies. Our Vet Aid scheme has also paid out over £40,000 in the last twelve months as contributions towards vet bills where dog owners are on low incomes or benefits. Our unique Re-homing service seeks suitable loving new homes for dogs of all ages being placed for adoption. The work of DAS is vital to ensure Scotland’s dogs are well cared for and owners are properly supported in providing that care. DAS currently spends in the region of half a million pounds every year and to survive long term must find new and innovative ways of funding our work.
We have big ambitions to do more in the years to come. To succeed we need a powerful, inclusive and visionary Board of Trustees to work with our Chair and Chief Executive. We are fortunate to have a varied skillset in our current Trustees but we wish to appoint an additional 3 or 4 to join them in taking our work forward.
Who are we looking for?
We are seeking people with skills and experience in the following areas:
• Fundraising, Marketing, Communications
• Finance and Administration
• Charity Law and Governance
• Digital and social media
