We urgently need your help
Can you offer a foster home to one of the needy dogs waiting for their chance at home life ?
Foster homes are urgently required as there are too many dogs for the kennel spaces available.
We also really need a homechecker for the Brentwood and Braintree area.
Volunteers are always needed to help with the rescue dogs, cleaning kennels and veterinary runs etc. particularly on Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday and Friday mornings and all day Saturday. If you can spare any time to care for needy animals, please contact the kennels to arrange some volunteer work.
Our thanks to Sara Williams for buying a much needed chest freezer for Mutts. Also, thanks to the kind couple that donated a second hand fridge/freezer. Both will be used thoroughly.
Does anyone have some spare fencing panels ?? If you have any that are surplus to requirements, please call the kennels who will gratefully take them off your hands. Also, if anyone has any white kitchen units (wall or base units ), worktops and shelving, Mutts would be pleased to hear from you. They will be used in the animal hospital block. The units do not need to match but should be easy to keep clean. Thank you.
Donation of materials needed for hospital unit
As we often help other animals who get brought to us wounded or poorly, Mutts in Distress
are creating a bird and small animal hospital here at the kennels.
We've got most of the internal equipment we need but still need the following if anyone can help:
Corrugated roofing panels
White wall tiles (or light colour)
Lino or floor tiles.
Angle poise lamp
Hammerite or similar paint
Cream masonry paint
White wall and base kitchen units.
We appeal for help sometimes, to save Mutts funds to pay vet bills, which are expensive and ongoing.
If we don't have to buy materials, we can pay more off our vet bill.
Thank you for looking.
Thank you to Ellie
