Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who have braved some truly rotten, freezing, miserable weather to ensure that all the rescue dogs got a walk every single day whilst Shelley was on holiday. We couldn't have done it without you!
Please don't forget the Higham
Show on 27th May 2013..........
it's a great fun day out for
people and dogs.....................
just one of the prizes/rosettes
to be won on the day is shown
I took a call today from a very nice young lady. Her friend's parents have divorced. Both parents have moved out of the family flat (which has no garden), leaving their young adult daughter there. The daughter works full time (shift work)and is struggling to walk/look after the parent's 14 year old rottie. I did explain that we cannot take this dog - we simply could not fid this old boy a home for the couple of months he has left. The dog is actually very much loved by the daughter - she will keep him and struggle on. I suppose my point is this - I thought parents were supposed to be the responsible ones.
CAN YOU HELP?
Today is the 30th January - and to date we have only homed two dogs. Where are all the good homes? If you have lost a rott and are thinking about getting another please don't wait too long. There are so very many beautiful dogs in rescue that just need love, time, patience and understanding. THEY NEED YOU.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Thank you for your support. In these hard times, every penny counts.
Well, as you may have noticed, we have several new dogs in our care. Lets hope the New Year brings a better understanding by owners of the needs of this breed, less ignorance, more patience and most of all, more thought before getting a dog......but I doubt that will happen!
