We only had one adoption today, but as it was of a fairly elderly dog, we are very happy!
Cavalier King Charles spaniel Charles arrived two and a half weeks ago, and as he was identified, we expected his owner to reclaim him. Sadly there was a problem with the identification; it was still in the name of the pet shop where he had been bought as a puppy. And this particular pet shop does not keep records of where puppies are sold. Thus the SPA had no way of getting in touch with his owners. Of course they did their best, putting photos on Facebook and other sites in the hope that the owner would be alerted. However there comes a time when the best thing is for a dog to find a new home.
Charles is not the youngest of dogs, but is very handsome. And sure enough it did not take long for him to attract the attention of a family who knows the breed well, and were delighted to find such a perfect (if “chubby” 😉 ) specimen at the SPA.
So that was not a bad end to a week that has been more positive than negative. And with glorious sunshine and a great team of volunteers giving dogs more frequent walks, things are looking good!
