Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

THERE’S some­thing about this face that’s heart­break­ing. He looks as though he has not had an easy life. Whiskers was found, as a stray, with a poorly toe. Many of us know how ailments such as a poorly toe or a splin­ter in our fin­ger can sound mi­nor but are ac­tu­ally the source of great pain.

Who knows how much suf­fer­ing Whiskers en­dured be­fore he re­ceived help? Thank­fully, he was taken to The May­hew where they sorted him out and he is now ready for his new home.

He is a firm favourite at the home, where he sits wait­ing to melt peo­ple’s hearts.

If you can of­fer Whiskers a new start and help to en­sure his fu­ture is hap­pier than his past, you can meet him at The May­hew An­i­mal Home, Tren­mar Gar­dens, Ken­sal Green NW10 6BJ.

His new own­ers will need to watch one of his claws to en­sure it does not grow into his foot.

Re­lief of suf­fer­ing is what an­i­mal res­cue or­gan­i­sa­tions do and of­ten not just in this coun­try, but also abroad.

The May­hew is hold­ing an in­ter­na­tional evening on Oc­to­ber 2 from 6.30pm to tell sup­port­ers about their work abroad.

Peter Egan, the ac­tor, will com­pere the evening and en­ter­tain­ment will be pro­vided by the Kate Daniels Jazz Quar­tet, fea­tur­ing Alec Dankworth on bass and John Hor­ler on pi­ano.

The evening takes place at Burgh House, New End Square NW3 1LT.

Tick­ets cost £15 from the­may­hew.org.

One of the suc­cess sto­ries of The May­hew’s in­ter­na­tional work is the res­cue of three or­phaned bear cubs after flood­ing in Ge­or­gia.

May­hew sup­port­ers, to­gether with the Born Free Foun­da­tion, en­sured that last May the three bears were sent to the Bear and Wolf Arc­turos Sanc­tu­ary in Greece.

The May­hew re­cently re­ceived an up­date telling g them how the cubs have made friends with an­other cub, Pa­trick, and how w they spend their days chill­ing in their dens or play­ing, swim­ming and climb­ing.

Vis­i­tors to Greece can visit the sanc­tu­ary or see www. arc­turos.gr.

Nearer home, The May­hew is at­tend­ing the Chiswick House Dog Show on Sun­day, from 11am to 4.15pm.

Other char­i­ties, such as Dogs Trust and An­i­mals Asia, will also be among more than 60 stall­hold­ers there.

The celebrity-judged dog show fea­tures classes such as Best Res­cue and My Dog’s Got Tal­ent.

It takes place on the cricket pitch at Chiswick House Gar­dens W4 2RP.
