Our Dogs Project 130

The objective of Project 130 is to raise £130,000 to fund the rebinding and restoration of 130 years’ worth of back issues of Our Dogs newspaper and to digitise each page for online access.

 

About Our Dogs Project 130

Every issue of this unique paper heritage of 130 years

Nearly 7000 issues are housed in Manchester but in binders which have been badly stored in years gone by and deteriorated over time, putting their contents at risk. This also involves Annuals and Christmas Supplements. The process of rebinding and restoration is not cheap and will take 2 to 3 years to complete. Our Dogs has launched Project 130 to sympathetically restore the paper archive to its full glory and at the same time digitise pages so that the archive can be ultimately accessed online by anyone anywhere in the world.

 

Our Mission

The objective of Project 130

We aim with your help to fund the rebinding and restoration of 130 years’ worth of back issues of Our Dogs newspaper and to digitise each page for online access. All donations will be acknowledged and listed physically and digitally in the archive and recognised in full. Larger donations can be acknowledged and dedicated on specific years and in gold leaf on the binders. This opportunity is open to individuals, commercial companies, dog shows organisations in the UK, Ireland and worldwide.
