A Burnley business has donated two computers to Pendle Dogs in Need which will help the charity to save and rehome vulnerable dogs.

P3 Computers launched a campaign on social media offering up to five refurbished computers to local charities, groups or good causes who would benefit from the technology.

As soon as we launched the campaign we were inundated by messages from supporters of Pendle Dogs in Need

Paula Knowles, one of the founders of Pendle Dogs in Need, said: “The computers are going to really help us with our work.

“We have to leave a paper trail for each dog we help, each dog we microchip, and each dog we rehome – that’s a lot of paperwork.”

One of the two new computers will be based at The Hub in Burnley Road, Colne, so details about the dogs can be keyed in directly.

Paula added: “The Hub has been without a computer now for around three months. It completely gave up.

“We don’t have funding to spend on new computers because every penny goes on the dogs. These two computers will be a lifeline to the charity and will help us to do our work more efficiently.”

Paula said the charity has helped to rehome dogs from all over the country since it was established in 2013.

The dog’s stories range from abuse, abandonment, owners unable to look after them, and bereavement.

Jo Kinder, general manager at P3 Computers, said: “As soon as we launched the campaign we were inundated by messages from supporters of Pendle Dogs in Need.”

P3 Computers still has three more computers it would like to give to a good cause.

If your charity, group or club would benefit from a computer then send them a message on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #P3Comps.
