    From my understanding you pay 'X' amount of money or chose the amount per month to donate towards your chosen dog, in return you get pictures / updates / letters/ CHristmas cards from your chosen sponsor dog.

    I never really understood it to be honest, If I donate to a charity I would much rather them not waste money meant for animal welfare on sending out photos / paperwork, would prefer the money to go to where it was meant to.

    I sponsor horses at Bramsby rest home. I pay £5 a year per horse/pony/donkey I choose to sponsor and get a certificate in return plus a yearly mag of there updates.

    Never sponsored a dog though, sorry :eek:

    Didnt mean it to sound so negative sorry! Just personally I dont understand the logic of giving money to a charity and expecting something in return.

    I don't think you sound negative at all. I'm all for giving practical help...handing in food/bedding/toys etc. But paying a set amount every month to get some "letters and photos" from your sponsored pet...I find baffling quite frankly.
