The ‘Hope’ Rescue Dog sculpture is part of my Charities Range. 100% of the proceeds go to Doris Banham Dog Rescue.

Doris Banham Dog Rescu
e was set up in memory of Doris Banham, the mother of founder Trudie James. The cornerstone of the Charity is to always rescue those dogs in greatest need. This policy leads them to focus on the forgotten pound dogs on death row in council pounds. Doris Banham Dog Rescue alleviates their suffering and saves their lives.

Council pounds hold many lost and abandoned dogs picked up by dog wardens. Pounds may euthanise these dogs after only 7 days if their owner has not reclaimed them. Much-loved pets are put to sleep after just one week when owners don’t locate them in time. Of the 10’s of 1000’s of dogs that are stolen each year in the UK some of these end up in the pounds. For those that are not microchipped and typically hundreds of miles from their owners, they face certain death if a rescue does not take them.

100% of profit goes to the 'Doris Banham Dog Rescue' animal charity.

Which Material to Choose

Bronze Resin – bronze metal powder is mixed with a resin to create the appearance of foundry bronze metal, but is more affordable and lightweight.

Foundry Bronze  – refers to the poured molten metal that is cast solid or hollow, depending on size, at a bronze foundry (using the traditional lost wax process). It is more robust and will appreciate in value.

Sculpture Description, Bases & Fixings

This meaningful Rescue Dog Waving Paw statue is sculpted by artist Tanya Russell, who is well known for her life-like wildlife and animal sculptures. Tanya has a passion for improving the welfare of the animals she sculpts and 100% of the proceeds of the rescue dog sculpture goes to Doris Banham Dog Rescue.

This bronze Hope Rescue Dog Waving Paw bears Tanya’s signature and unique edition number. Your casting of the rescue dog sculpture will be personally approved and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

The Hope, Rescue Dog Waving Paw is an open edition sculpture, and your piece will be a superb recreation of the original bronze sculpture from a mould.

If you would like this statue to be mounted on a stone or wooden base, please contact me for a quote.

How The Sculpture Was Made

The Rescue Dog sculpture was modelled in wax, over a steel and aluminium armature for support. After the statue was finished a rubber mould was taken, with ‘keys’ placed in the rubber to ensure proper positioning. Then a shell of fibreglass was applied, to protect the mould and support it during the casting process.

Client Testimonials

“I have received your beautiful ‘Hope’ sculpture without problem. I trust your wonderful work rescuing and rehoming dogs will be a success.”

Almudena, (Buyer)

“Sarah loves him and says it is a beautiful reminder of all the qualities of Charlie.”

Beryl, (Buyer)

“I am very pleased to let you know that the Hope sculpture arrived safely today. I think it will be named “Hugo” as from his picture he is very similar to our adored “Smudge” who is a cross between a boxer and a border collie and very lovable. He can now make friends with Roberto (the elephant) and the sleeping horse.
Thanks very much.”

Alice, (Buyer)

“they are lovely . They will make great presents thank you.”
