Exits and Entrances: Central German Shepherd Rescue turns out to be less exciting than it seems

Plus: No More Dodos and the Kevin Pietersen Foundation

Arrivals and departures from the register of charities

We start this month with two clarifications. First, Central German Shepherd Rescue, which registered with the Charity Commission last month, is a dogs charity – as far as Exits knows, there is no crisis of lost shepherds in the region. Second, another registrant, No More Dodos, is pro-biodiversity rather than a campaign to eliminate the said bird; apparently, it's already a goner.

On the subject of extinct species, the Tim Henman Foundation has also been registered, with the retired tennis player and his wife sitting on its board, but there is no place on the board of the Kevin Pietersen Foundation for its eponymous founder. Surely the charity's trustees can't have decided that the former England cricketer isn't a team player?

Finally, it's farewell to the deregistered Institute of Civil Protection and Emergency Management. It appears to be operating still, although it's hard to tell from its website, and its LinkedIn group says it has been experiencing "serious issues with its main website that have been totally beyond its control". Sounds like time for some, erm, emergency management.
