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, walking,
cleaning kennels and veterinary runs etc. particularly on
Saturday and Tuesday
We also need your help to care for the other rescue animals on the site.
These include horses, donkeys, sheep, geese, hens and any other waif and stray that arrives.
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 a corner desk with drawers they no longer use please ? We need one for the reception area to make booking in a speedier process. Thank you.
Also, some paving slabs ?? If you have any that are surpluss to requirements.
Newest recruit needing help.
Diva, such a lucky girl. She nearly didn't make it. Here is her story..........
I was contacted by the dog pound, asking if I could help with a GSD pup that had been surrendered in to them, the dog warden was not sure if it was truly aggressive or it was just fear.
The owner had bought the dog who she was told was 5 months old from an advert on a well known website for €100 + €20 for the sellers fuel to deliver the pup. She bought the dog for her AUTISTIC CHILD. The seller left after dumping the dog and getting his money. The lady let the dog into the garden and that's where she stayed for 3 DAYS. She couldn't go near the dog, who was barking and growling. The lady called the dog warden, he had to catch the dog in the garden of the house with a net and once in the pound, nobody could get near her. The poor dog was due to be put to sleep but the dog warden wanted to give her a chance, hence the call to me.
Never been handled by a human, absolutely terrified.
Here is Diva now......
Diva is approx 9 months old and now actively seeks out attention and affection, she is a happy, playful girl who just loves other dogs and now people too.
Diva is due to be vax'ed and microchipped. Neutering will be carried out at a later date due to her age.
