We would love you to help us with this!

As our Jewellery Auction draws to a close, we’ve got to get cracking with our exciting “Christmas Bonanza Auction”.
We will have lots of things to buy outright and lots to bid for and what we’d like, is for you to rummage through your drawers for unwanted presents that you think others might want. We need good quality items suitable for mailing. If you’re a crafter, artist, knitter, anything creative, we’d love you to donate to this fundraiser. If you have anything you think is suitable, please message me Mary-Ann Dunning and I’ll tell you how we’ll run it.
Make sure you check in to our Auction page to see the Jewellery winners on Sunday and then in the following week or so, the photos of the next items will be popping up. Let’s make it a success for our dogs x

Our lockdown babies have all flown the nest

Finally the last of our beautiful little Boxer Xs are on their way! Paco and Lola have boarded the Happy Van with Jamie and Jeanette Scott bound for The Wirral. They’re off to the Traces Kennel today, all part of the DEFRA control of imported animals into the UK, then they’ll be arriving very soon with Paula Adley, who, I can tell you, on an excitement scale of 1-10 is currently at 100!
Paws on the Move also very kindly transported more soft toys for our puppies and two large metal crates! Our lovely Lorraine Jacques-goodacre and John Goodacre met the Van on its return journey to Spain and filled it with these goodies for us!
Thank you so much for this and “Buen Viaje” Paco, Lola and Paws on the Move. x

Relationships with other rescue organisations

We’re forging some great relationships with other rescue organisations at the moment and today we’re very pleased to announce that our latest partners are Rescue Dogs / Perros Abandonados Comunicacion Valencia.
We look forward to a successful future together.

Everything is gleaming

Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, Satu Järlbrink and Joanna Peers who have worked so hard, the shop is all set for the big day!
Satu’s had some great signage printed, so there’s no doubt about the rules that need to be observed.
So all we need now is for tomorrow to come and we’ll be BACK IN BUSINESS!

Shop announcement: As long as the next phase permits, we will re-open on friday 29th May.

Things will obviously be done differently. The opening times will be as before. Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 10am till 2pm.
Gloves and masks must be worn at all times and only two shoppers in the shop at any time.
At the moment we are not accepting donations of clothing.
Everything in the shop has been cleaned to within an inch of its life over the last two weeks, for everyone’s safety.
We hope you’ll be able to pop by and support us.
There’s great stuff in there and Colleen Jay can’t wait to see some familiar faces (at a social distance 😉) #GettingUsedToTheNewNormal xx

It’s been such a long time coming!

But off went our lovely Opal to the Traces Kennel in readiness for her journey to Ishbel Thallon in Scotland. She’s all dressed up in her new harness and collar, a present from Auntie Colleen, who loved this girl very much. Safe journey with Jamie and Jeanette Scott and all the other little dogs going to their new homes at long last xxx

The time has come! These little beauties are now avaiable to reserve…

…Something to look forward to when lockdown is finally over.

In the puppy house, as you’ll know (if you’ve been following their antics), we have available from the Podenco mum and her Galgo and Pointer mates, 4 males and 2 females. Available in our little Boxer litter are 2 Brindle boys and 2 brindle girls. Alongside these we have the Galga “Mother” to them all, Majkens (originally known as Rayas) with her two little puppies, Lucky, the boy and Charm, the girl. Finally we have our Super-pup, Cosmo the Mastin.
All these puppies will be available to reserve, subject to an initial “Virtual Homecheck” and a real one when possible again.
All the puppies will be getting their second vaccinations next Tuesday when our Vet visits. You can see pictures of all the puppies posted in a separate post, later today.
If you would like to reserve one, please contact me for full adoption details. Mary-Ann Dunning

Puppy Alert!

This little family won’t be small!!!
I thought I’d just give you a preview of our latest litter 😍 Four boys and one girl. Just the cutest bundles of cuddliness ever! A man we’d never seen before brought them and said he’d drop them off in the fields if we didn’t take them. They’ll be big dogs so we’ll have to be a bit picky about where they end up but if you check back after the weekend, we’ll have individual photos of them.
