A “New Year” but sadly the same old cycle of abandoned, unwanted, stray dogs to be saved from the local pound. As of this week, we have 80 dogs under our care at the Rescue .. these dogs are safe now .. mostly because we are so lucky to have the support of Rescues in the UK and Sweden who offer so many of these dogs that are overlooked a second chance. And more importantly, a core group of simply amazing foster homes to help alleviate the pressure at the kennels and give TLC to the more vulnerable pooches.

There are no words to justify the absolute state some of these dogs are in by the time they have come into our care .. and this is not something that has happened in a few days – this is quite often neglect that has occurred over months and years … already since the New Year, we have had 5 dogs in for emergency grooming … no animal should ever be left in this state … each of the dogs featured here this week had all done their time in the Pound – none were reclaimed or wanted by the public – only for the intervention of Rescues there would be no hope for them, as sadly with each passing day, the Pounds keep filling up!

Huge thank you first and foremost to our tremendous crew of walkers, who each and every week, put the wag in the tails of our kenneled dogs .. their assessment and feedback is vital and the bond they create with the dogs simply warms the heart

Also, to our precious foster homes – many of which have offered and taken more than 1 dog – incredible care being shown to these more vulnerable, needy pooches xx

So as always, we are appealing to you, our supporters, to keep your financial support coming – there are a lot of dogs that require vaccinations, medication, etc all a huge strain on our already limited finances .. particularly in a year that we are hoping to make real on our dream of a DDR Rescue Centre ..

Thank you xx
