Animals who have been re-homed from 20-26 September 2010

Happy Homes Appeal

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Our animal behaviourist Steve made us all smile with his plan for his Enrichment Paddock (below, click to make larger). This new secure space will be funded by donations to the Happy Homes Appeal (click here to read more about that) and will be used during the day by our residents and perhaps in the evening we could open it to people bringing their dogs in for a small donation.

We think it looks like a lot of fun, particularly the squeaky floor! If you want to help Steve make his paddock, please donate by clicking the red heart at the top of the page.

DID YOU KNOW? If you state the project you’re donating towards we can only use the money towards that project.

Two and a half years ago we got a delivery of seven German Shepherds and two cats which were part of a huge RSPCA case. The owner had over 30 dogs kept in crates, which were taken from them and split between several rescue homes. These animals were cared for here at the Home, but as they were not signed over to us they were not available to be re-homed or even walked by volunteers. After several delays and an overturned appeal, plus the sad death of one elderly cat, we are pleased to say these gorgeous pets are now free to find a happy home.

Because of the length of time in kennels and the restrictions on contact imposed with case animals, coupled with their tough start in life, they are nervous of meeting new people. They are mostly un-housetrained and will have never seen household objects such as hoovers, washing machines and sofas. Imagine being 25 years old and never heard a hoover! This means they will require patient and understanding owners.

Read more about them on their profile pages – start here to find them. If you are interested in adopting any of these animals then please come and get to know them, and ask their animal carer about them.
