SHAK Teams Up With Templeman Retailing and Vending.....

We're delighted to announce our sponsorship with the fantastic Templeman Retailing and Vending. A local family run company, who really have changed the lives of our dogs forever.

In fact I think the support from Chairman Neil Templeman, Director Wendy Templeman, Managing Director KevinTempleman and the whole team is what you could call 'life changing' and not just for the dogs. We have been able to add to our workforce through their sponsorship and vastly improved the level of care and attention we are able to give to each and everyone of our dogs. It doesn't stop there though, and there are already plans to increase the exposure and strengthen the bond between both organisations.....

This includes the SHAK logo and website on every TRV vending cup, whilst also the fleet of new vans will also carry the SHAK logo.....

Kevin Templeman has also come up with some other amazing ideas that will be announced in due course, and for which we are extremely grateful!

It's incredible that the whole company has got behind us and supports us in every aspect of our work. Last weekend we welcomed Steve Jordan And Paul Taylor from the sales team to have a 'day in the life of' experience, and it was also great to welcome Paul's daughter Jessie onto the team. Here's some photos and a few words on how they found it.....

Over the course of the weekend the team from Templeman Retailing & Vending proudly continued to show their ongoing support for local dog charity SHAK.

The sanctuary for abused, mistreated and neglected dogs had the pleasure of welcoming some additional volunteers to offer a helping hand with some daily activities including dog walking, kennel cleaning, feeding the dogs and general pooch pampering. Steve Jordan, Paul Taylor and his daughter Jessie Taylor spent the weekend helping the team at SHAK look after more than 70 four legged friends currently in the charity’s care and what an amazing experience it was.

When asked about his time volunteering Steve Jordan said “after meeting Stephen Wylie the charity’s founder, he introduced us all to the world of SHAK and it very quickly became clear what an amazing job this charity does. Stephen explained some of the unique reasons as to why the dogs are in SHAK’s care and for anyone who is a dog lover some of the reasons were truly disturbing and difficult to accept. Following our experience one thing that has become crystal clear is that it is not just humans who need a little love and support from time to time, this weekend has been unforgettable and so so rewarding, I would encourage all dog lovers out there to give up a little of their time and help this fantastic charity”.

It's not all cuddles!

Paul's turn.

I prefer the smell confectionary!

I cannot express in words how grateful we are for the support from Kevin and his team. In hindsight, life changing doesn't do it justice, it's beyond that. We are all extremely grateful.....
