It has been a tumultuous week at the ScPA. Last Sunday’s huge storms left the refuge untouched, but the surrounding area was devastated, with loss of life and a great deal of material damage to homes and property. And of course numerous animals were caught in the chaos.
The refuge has been fielding calls from owners looking for their pets and many dogs have been arriving. Sadly there were not many matches: The dogs arriving were not the ones being searched for by desperate owners. I know events like this are supposedly once in a lifetime, but it is yet one more reason why identifying your dog is critical.
If you have lost your dog, keep an eye on the arrivals at the various refuges in the area, and there has been a Facebook page set up specifically to help reunite animals and their owners.
We did have one adoption today, that of eight year old French bulldog Fleur. Although This lovely girl was identified, her owners have not come to reclaim her. Perhaps that is no bad thing. Fleur has clearly had several litters and we have no doubt that she will enjoy her retirement, which, her new owner asssures us, will be spent on the sofa.
We have more adoptions planned for tomorrow, so see you then.
