After much discussion, Pete and I have decided that RRT is to become a Sanctuary, effective immediately.
We have 7 dogs here, Dave, our own dog, 4 sanctuary dogs and two dogs that have been waiting for homes. All those six dogs are 7 or older. Unfortunately, most people do not wish to consider "less than perfect" older dogs, if they consider older dogs at all. We cannot keep on adding to the dogs that are here, hoping that someone kind will take an older dog on.
We will, of course, take back any RRT dog that needs our help - whatever it's age.
We would like to thank everyone who has helped or supported us over the years - it is very much appreciated.
Pete and I are happy to fund the 6 sanctuary dogs ourselves and will understand if you wish to cancel your Direct Debits.
If you have an RRT dog you will have our phone number for emergencies. Our email address will be on the website, but we will not respond to emails if they are not from RRT owners.
