Dogs Die in Hot Cars

As the weather warms up and people are getting out and about more, we are reminding people not to leave dogs in warm and hot cars.

Even if you park in the shade or leave a window open, the temperature in your car can still rise to very dangerous levels and quickly become like an oven.

Nobody ever thinks its going to happen to them or their much loved pet, yet every year many people still gamble with their dog’s life and every summer dogs die in hot cars.

If you see a dog in distress in a hot cardial 999 without delay.

World Spay Day – 23rd February

World Spay Day is here and it’s more important than ever that the benefits of Spaying and Neutering are made clear.

If you haven’t yet had your cat or dog neutered whether it be due to finances, time, or because you’ve been told you don’t need to, we would like to help!

We are strong believers in animals being neutered as soon as possible to avoid health problems later in life, unwanted litters when there are so many animals without homes already, or frustrating behavioural issues.

That’s why we are jumping on board this World Spay Day and running two separate promotions!

Please see the poster for all the details.

Valentine’s Photo Competition now closed

Our Valentine’s Photo Competition has now closed. Many thanks to all the people who entered, many of whom donated much more than the £2 entry fee.

Our category judges will be hard at work – and given how gorgeous all the entries are, their task will not be an easy one.

We will notify the winners before the end of February and all the winning entries will be on our website and Facebook about the same time.

Thank you!

We all hope you had a lovely Christmas day!

We’d like to say a massive thank you to our supporters who donated goodies to all our animals to make their day just as special as any other. They certainly got spoilt with new toys and treats!

Whilst we made the animals at our centre a day as special as can be, we tried to go that extra mile and some even spent their Christmas in a home with our staff.
