Friday 3rd June




Another beautifully sunny day today and things are certainly brightening up at the rescue. Hopefully you will notice a difference when you visit us on Dog Show day (3rd July) as we are busy spring cleaning, painting, planting and generally giving the place a bit of a face lift. You may have seen Nicky’s post earlier, informing everyone that we will be closed on Monday for health and safety reasons while we have some heavy lifting equipment on site. This is volunteers, as well as potential adopters. We apologise if this caused any inconvenience but we have to ensure that everyone is kept safe.
Just one departure today as terrific Turbo went off to his forever home. He is a gorgeous lad and his new owners have got themselves a fantastic pet.
Some good news today, although it’s early days so lets not get too excited yet – Fred & Freda have been reserved! Once a homecheck has been done, they are going to go out on trial as we don’t know how they will cope with living with a cat. From the cat test that we have done, they don’t seem particularly interested in cats, but when a cat is on its own territory & running around, that may be a different matter. Fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly. Dec has also been reserved today, and will also be going on a week’s trial to see how he gets on.
We had a visit from two ladies from the Abakhan Knit & Natter Group today, who brought in 12 beautiful blankets which will be given to our dogs when they go out to their new homes. Thank you to all the ladies in the group for all of the care that you have put in to creating these wonderful blankets.
We also had a visit from Beverley Jones who brought in lots of boxes of kitten food and 32 knitted blankets for our adoption blanket scheme. Thank you so much Beverley for your hard work.
Just a reminder for those of you who are calling in or passing the rescue at the weekend, that our raffle tickets are now on sale in reception. They are £1 per ticket (5 tickets in a book) and the prizes are fantastic! Don’t miss out on the chance to win £1000 – get your tickets quick!
Hope you and your furry family members all have a fabulous weekend. More news soon x
