Car Boot

Well we made it! 
Thank you to everyone for coming along to the last Car Boot for 2017. We’ve enjoyed them all and though the next one seems such a way off, it’ll come round soon enough. 
Special huge Thank you to Debbie, Joy, Jane, kathryn and Kathleen for coming along and serving up all your delicious delights, many happy and contented smiles, well done.
Again, please accept our heartfelt thanks not only for today but for every moment you devote your time to help raise funds to improve the lives of others, words can never express our appreciation but hopefully their smiling faces and happy updates will. 
Also many thanks to all our volunteers and staff who carry on regardless, we know these days can be quite challenging at times but you all seem to come through smiling, thank you all. 
Well that’s it for now, we hope booters and buyers all had a good day too and we look for to seeing you again in April 2018!

Sponsored Walk

Well what a turn out we had today at the Sponsored Walk!!!! 
Thank you everyone who joined us and for giving so generously, you raised an astonishing amount.
Total raised today plus other donations given outside but on behalf of the walk is standing at just under £600!!!!
What an outstanding achievement by you all and the 3 dogs needing surgery will be well on their way to living a full life pain free. 
Thank you so much and please accept Sally’s and my apologies for not getting back in time to thank some of you personally before you left.
Should anyone who couldn’t join us today but would still like to donate, you can drop any donations into the shops or the Kennels or simply contact Alison (treasurer) on 01299 266005. 
Brilliant day for all, the sunshine was a bonus and we all stayed dry lol.

We sincerely hope you enjoyed the walk as much as we did and after several requests, look forward to doing it again next year, hope you can join us again. 

We do try to thank everyone for their kindness and continued support towards FDR and hopefully we don't miss anyone, nothing is taken for granted and we consider this charity to be truly blessed by so many, thank you each and everyone of you.

the Month


This absolute stunning boy came to us originally from another rescue. We rehomed him back in April but unfortunately, he has recently been returned to us. We have spent the last week assessing this young fella and are now hopeful that we have the measure of him and the sort of home he needs!
With adults and older children, we have found him to be loving and playful! He enjoys playing in our playpen and is a real live teddy bear when it comes to cuddles! When playing however, he does have a tendency to get over excited and can nip which is why we would be looking for either an all adult household for him or one with high school aged children used to dogs.
The main reason for Winston coming back to us was that he became aggressive to other dogs. He had been known to bark at other dogs when he was here earlier in the year but this appears to have got worse whilst he was away. The staff here are working with him to try and improve this but any adopter would need to understand that he does have issues with other dogs and be prepared to further his training and accept potentially, he may never be dog friendly.
The staff here feel that his cuddles make up for this and can be found after hours having a sneaky cuddle with him :)

However cute and gorgeous he is, Winston is not a first dog. We are looking for a family with plenty of time, bags of patience and no other pets! If you have the room in your heart to take on a teenage, unruly but a loving and doting lad (maybe a human version has flown the nest recently), please pick up the phone and make an appointment to meet this boy!!

No cats, no children under 11 years

If you think you can offer Winston the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on
01299 269 181

Thank you!
