Snug is desperate for love!

Posted by Karen Rhodes on 19 July 2009 | 0 Comments

Tags: ,

Snug was brought to the Home by rangers over a week ago. She is about 12-years-old and her back legs are very stiff and sore so she isn't very agile. Snug was underweight and very timid when she arrived. Our staff have shown her much love and with gentle encouragement she is slowly gaining confidence and a little weight each day.

Wet weather and low overnight temperatures has resulted in a need for donations of old blankets to keep our dogs warm at night. The wet weather is making it difficult to get washed blankets dry and we are asking for supporters to donate old (but clean) blankets.

Beautiful Barney needs a home

Posted by Karen Rhodes on 13 July 2009 | 2 Comments

Barney was surrendered to us recently because his owner has gone into hospice care and won't be returning home. He is an adorable 13-year-old Staffy x Corgi and was an inside dog so is perfectly toilet trained. He is extremely social, plays with cats, was very good with the grand kids and LOVES a cuddle - you could say he's the perfect dog!

Seniors deserve our respect

Posted by Karen Rhodes on 21 June 2009 | 3 Comments

Tags: ,

It's so sad to see so many older dogs ending up at the home. Recently we've taken in a record number of mature dogs that are clearly bewildered as to why they are with us - and to be honest so are we. Surely they deserve to be spoilt at this time of their life and whilst we do our best to make them feel as comfortable as possible in their new surrounds they really do deserve to be in a loving home.
