Yes, you may think that you are coming along to walk dogs, but what happens when you fall in love with not one but TWO dogs? Answer: You reserve them, of course!!!
Thank you so much to our lovely new volunteer, who will be back on Monday to collect Rasta and Rocket!
Well, not much news from the refuge today, but I thought you would like some news of two of the SPA dogs who are in foster families. Firstly we have a lovely photo of Alexia, who left with her foster mum yesterday (thanks!) and one of Daphne,who has been in foster care for several weeks now.
Fostering is excellent as it enables us to know much more about the dogs and so helps us to find them the perfect home. And of course they benefit from socialisation and warmth as well as freeing up some space at the refuge.
Look at this beautiful boy! No, it is not Bertie (now Fred) who has come back. Nor is it Gwen, who is living a life of luxury in England. Please meet Munroe, a one year old Fauve de Bretagne. He is fabulous on the lead and happy to be patted. I think he is going to be a real star and I am going to contact the wonderful people at Fauve Rescue UK to see if they can help us find him a home.
In other news, a great supporter of the refuge has taken Alexia home to foster, so she will be warm and loved until the right home can be found.
Another emotional day. With a friend I delivered lovely Calie to her new home. I cried when I left her, even though I know she will be so happy there! I arrived back at the refuge to find that 6 other dogs had found homes today, which was just wonderful news and has helped to raise morale amongst volunteers and employees alike. See my website (www.dogrescuecarcassonne.co.uk) to see exactly who left, or follow us on Facebook to see all the latest, link on the right.
Just for a taster, here is the wonderful Fabio, a pedigree Dogue Argentin who was abandoned at the railway station in Carcassonne because his owner didn’t want to pay for his train ticket!
Well, three dogs found their owners today, two of whom had only just arrived yesterday, so that can be forgiven, but who leaves it 3 weeks before looking for their dog? Still it is good news for them all, and also for little Idylle, who found a home today. Here she is, and I am hoping for news of her, as she went to great supporters of the refuge. Two new dogs arrived, tho, so we are almost back where we started in terms of numbers
Well, not a bad day. We said goodbye to our big beautiful Brooklyn, who had such a horrid life before arriving at the refuge. It was also the start of a new life for two of our littlies, firstly Dillon who arrived in a catatonic state following some kind of trauma (maybe it is a good thing that dogs can’t speak) and also to Bertie, a basset fauve de Bretagne, who has gone off to live with a lovely looking miniature schnauzer.
One dog arrived, and I will post him on my site tomorrow (www.dogrescuecarcassonne.co.uk) Handsome is his name, with good reason!
We thought we had a home for Alexia, but it has fallen through. Surely someone must want this lovely girl, she is only 11 months old, and is weighs under 10 kg as she was malnourished as a puppy. Alexia is chipped and sterilised.
