Selection of dogs in our care – Christmas 2016

Posted on Posted in Our Dogs

So as another year draws to a close, sadly the Pound keeps filling up .. today alone, we rescue 3 dogs; 1 of which was a surrender – there are still 2 dogs in the Pound who’s time is not up yet. Christmas week – no goodwill for these poor pooches !!!

We are grateful to Danielle and her family who welcomed the young surrendered dog into their home this afternoon.  She has been described as shy but a great mixer with other dogs and children .. shame on her owners for dumping her into the Pound – but thankfully she’ll soon forget this trauma and has a fun-filled Christmas ahead of her xxx

We are truly appreciative of the kind foster offers that have been made to us for over the Christmas period – we have not yet had a chance to assess all of the dogs that have come to us – we hope to get back to you all on Saturday (Christmas Eve) when our volunteers will be at the kennels to walk and play with all the kennelled pooches and give them their Christmas treats.

Special mention to our colleagues in Heathlands Animal Sanctuary in the UK and Hundar Utan Hem in Sweden who between them both provided rescue places to over 30 of our dogs last week. Their continued support has been vital as sadly there just aren’t enough homes here locally. As of today, we have 58 dogs under our care, and this will no doubt rise before the week is out! 17 dogs in kennels and the rest split across our amazing foster homes xxx

We rely immensely on the support of our volunteers to keep doing what we do – our walkers, our foster homes, our rehoming team, our fundraising team, our back-office team – every one of our volunteers give their time without question and on top of their full time jobs, family life and dogs – from all of the doggies – thank you all xxx

Please keep sharing our dogs and our page – so many fabulous dogs in rescue who have done nothing wrong – they’ve simply been let down and/or abandoned by their humans …. our sole aim is to repair the damage and secure a happy ever after for all of them – #adoptdontshop #dontbuyloverescueit #betheirvoice #pupsnotprofit #adogisforlife

Solomon is still in our care after finding himself surrendered to the Louth County Pound. Despite his appearance, he is very much still a puppy. A shame he has been let down so early in his young life. Only good things from now on xx
