There are so many thanks we would like to give to so many; we hope you will all accept this post as our heartfelt thanks to you all.
There has been a vast amount of time given by many to ensure this day was going to be as good as it possibly could be. No one knew how this day was going to pan out but by the end of it, we were totally delighted with the outcome and that is because you and yours rewarded all who have worked so hard by just being there, thank you so much.
Even though we can see where improvements can still be made for next year, no one could have wished for a better day, you all made the day an incredible one and we can only hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as we did.Special thanks to Cindy, Debbie, Becky, Lynne, Kaye, Steve& their young family, Jayne & Mikey, Tony, Ellis and Tash for giving your free time tirelessly today plus prior to the event.Many thanks to all below for joining us too

the Week!


This happy little chap came in to rescue as a stray so no history unfortunately. Since coming into kennels Stewie has proved himself to be a very friendly boy, he loves going on walks and is very good on the lead, so much so that he is walked by all of our volunteers here. He loves to play ball in the playpen and he does know some of his basic commands such as sit. 

UPDATE : Stewie had started to become a little protective over food so he has been in a foster home under assessment for the last 3 - 4 weeks and has not put a foot (or paw) out of place.  He would be best suited being the only dog in the home as he tends to like all the attention to himself! Appointments would therefore be necessary as he still in his foster home.
No young children or cats.

If you think you can offer Stewie the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on
