Baddies, goodies and lovely Woody
Can you give an animal a loving home and a new start in life?
IT defies belief that anyone would actually take food out of the mouths of our rescue animals, but that’s what happened last week when someone broke into our premises and stole, among other things, our entire stock of staple cat and kitten food, together with a lot of dog food, we have been completely overwhelmed by the response to our appeal for pet food donations.
Dog and cat food, treats and contributions for food purchases have been pouring in at our Clinic, shops and via online deliveries. Our Trustees and staff have been deeply moved by the kindness and generosity shown by so many people and organisations and would like to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone for the support, which has gone beyond our wildest expectations.
We are now forced to upgrade our security systems, install new alarms and issue our staff with personal alarms etc.
All costs that reduce our financial availability for animal welfare. On top of all this unexpected spend, our main animal van has been written off in an accident and although insured it gives very little budget to replace a vehicle that would have gone on a lot longer. Our Luton van with tail lift, which covers our two charity furniture shops is now costing more to repair than its worth so we have an urgent need to replace these two vehicles. Not a minor spend. If anyone has contacts with a main dealer or has any suggestions to make to set up an appeal, get sponsorship etc., Please can we hear from you! Our animal van was a Ford Transit.
Our first litter of kittens have been born, please let us address this yearly shameful epidemic of tiny lives. Get your cat sterilised. If finance is a problem we can help.
One year old collie cross Woody, came into our care because his owner couldn’t cope with the demands of a lively young dog.
He is a very gentle boy who loves his cuddles, but he has lots of energy and needs to be kept busy with plenty of exercise and stimulation.
Typically collie, he is very bright, loves to play ball and may well enjoy fun doggy activities such as flyball / agility as part of ongoing training.
Woody doesn’t like to be left alone, so we are looking for a home where he will have human company for most of the day. Some work may be needed on house training.
Woody would be a lovely addition to a family with older sensible children and possibly another laid back dog. Do you have the perfect forever home to offer this very deserving young lad?
Thank you for your support ... We can’t do it without you!
