    I note there is a Donate option for the Kennel, which is great.
    So I can properly consider whether I should donate, does anyone know how the Kennel is funded, where it gets its funding and how much it receives etc etc??

    Wait? What?

    The pies at ANZ are Halal certified?

    No wonder they are so fucking expensive.

    I have similar questions - also how secure is the payments link. If all is OK , I'll happily donate.

    Hasn't been removed as such, just moved to another section. Having said that, if someone made the effort to move it, i would think they should have made the effort to answer your question...

    ... or maybe The Kennel IS run by Ray Dib...

    I think it is funded from Ads (which wouldn't be much) and the donations it receives (which wouldn't be much) and the back pocket of the guys that own/run the forum. I always try and kick in a bit every now and again as I know what it costs to host/run a forum.

    Same. I chucked in the $30 of whatever it was, as, considering i've been here for 5 years or so, i have got my money's worth.

    The kennel is a privately owned site that is funded by donations and ads. Im not too sure if the ads are making anything though since they were introduced, i havent asked. I think its mostly funded by the owner and donations.

    We have no sombrero

    If the ads aren't making money, we should fuck them off and bring on the adult content.

    Yeh, i dont know.... But we didnt have ads for like the first 10+ years, and he's only asked for donations the last couple of years too, so for many years it was all out of the owners pocket.
