Auctioned Car Donation Saves a Great Dane

Posted on 12th Jul 2019 by Charity Car Posted in: Latest News

Every single one of our charity partners is delighted to receive your car donations, whatever the sum, but the Charity Car team has to admit we fight for who gets to inform charities when an auction donation has come in!

Although the majority of your kind car donations are at the end of their life and its the scrap value we pass on as a donation, we do handle quite a few vehicles that hold enough value to go to auction. It’s usually a good result if they’ve generated a few hundred pounds, but we sometimes get the rather special 4 figure sums and we know that a charity is going to be really happy to hear from us!

Recently we had the utter joy of getting in touch with TJ – founder of TJ Danes Rescue – a unique charity that rescues and re-homes Great Danes across the UK. A generous donor had selected this wonderful charity to receive the proceeds from their old car, which resulted in a huge £1344 donation! We knew TJ would be pleased to hear about the funds but we didn’t realise quite how vital and well-timed the donation would be…

TJ had recently rescued a Great Dane called Juno, who they were struggling to find the funds to treat, and were facing the heart-breaking scenario of watching her suffer through her last days. The car donation came just in time to pay for Juno’s medical bills and not only is she now fit and well, but TJ has been able to find her a furever home, so she has a stable future to enjoy. The Charity Car team were so moved by TJ’s emotional response to the donation and we could not have been more thrilled to hear about Juno’s successful treatment and happy ending!

Rescued Great Danes healthy and well

Here’s what charity founder TJ himself had to say:

“We are extremely grateful for the generosity of spirit shown in this car donation – the donor is a truly good person and the funds raised by Charity Car have saved the life of a beautiful Great Dane who was facing the end after suffering a medical condition that we were struggling to find the funds to treat. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

Juno is now in her furever home and that’s what the charity’s main aim is – to ensure these magnificent dogs are placed with suitable families to offer long-term stability. Rather than kennel’s or sanctuaries, the charity uses a network of special foster homes across the UK where Great Danes can be happy until they have established a furever home. That entire process is time consuming, specialised, staffed entirely by volunteers and means financial support is vital to the charity.
