transportation and fuel prices

Post by Guest on Sun May 18, 2008 2:16 pm

I wondered if when rescues etc. are asking for help transporting if they could put whether fuel costs will be covered. And this be done as standard - perhaps on the template ? The reason I ask this is, where I am more than happy to give my time freely my budget does not always cover vast amounts of petrol. Our volunteers at the refuge are never out of pocket as I don't feel that is fair on them and can put people into a position where they can no longer help. Especially in the current financial state we are facing..... I would like to know other RHU members opinions and ideas on this Ali x wave

I agree that petrol/diesel prices are through the roof at the mo and probs will stay that way unfortunally. I know a couple on here DO state fuel costs can be covered but not all. Rescues have limited funds as we are aware so i really cannot see ALL been able to cough up.

This might help you.

Forgot to add, its a good idea if Rescues could put in their request if they are able to offer fuel costs thumb

I agree everyoes in the same predicament but instead of volunteers having to ask ( can be degrading) maybe the rescue could state whether or ot any or all funds available ????

Thanks for responding to me Julie - I thought I was chatting to myself again ROFL

I must admit that I never claim the fuel costs because at the moment I am financially able to do it without.

However I often wonder if any organisation puts this down as a "payment" to show the true cost of rescuing when fundraising etc.

Hope this makes sense.

I think it should be transparent if costs are provided or not. Not everyone can swallow costs.

As I have said before - if I cannot help and fuel costs are an issue I am happy to donate a cash sum towards it. Can't do everyone but could help with some.

You see this is the issue as well - I am financially viable but keep putting 200 a week in my car in fuel then I would soon not be. I don't want people to have to ask. If it could be on the template then it would be up to the individual to say keep your fuel money I can do it this time....etc. wave

I think it would be good if rescues maybe added how much they would be prepared to give for petrol costs or, maybe volunteers could say how much they think they will need...? It does feel a bit awkward asking though. And I know all the rescues are struggling....it's a difficult situation.

If I had the cash I wouldn't mind paying it all myself but at the moment I'm a bit skint and cannot realistically reason with my OH that it's ok for me to spend 20 moving a dog around the country but he can't buy that new Xbox game! Embarassed

rescues need to use the templates they are there for our benefit - thanks to everyone for thier input - it may encourage more runs etc if people know where they stand financially.. wave
