Coming up

It turned out that we have plenty of home visits to do but not for any of our animals. They all for other branches but as long as animals are finding new homes that's got to be a good thing.

We look to have some interest in our new dog Tyke (pictured). We have a reserve on him from someone who lives in Leicestershire. I had a really long chat with her today and she seems a lovely, experienced and kind person who give him the tlc he needs.

He came via one of the Inspectors following a complaint about the condition of the animal. It was thought he had a tumour but is was matted fur, but he was seriously underweight and the owner was all too keen to sign the animal over. He is a lovely natured dos, approx 8 years old who just needs some love and attention - well, don't we all?

And I am pleased to report that puppy Alfie (renamed by his foster sister Charlotte, aged 10) is making good progress. It seems highly likely that he has suffered some kind of trauma, i.e. been knocked about. But, he is starting to perk up and play and barked for the first time today! The vet reckons that after 6 weeks he will have reached his optimum recovery - so let's hope it's a good one. We will keep you posted.

I'm also pleased to report that we have interest in the 3 remaining ginger kittens so paws crossed they get reserves soon.
