So how did the week finish? Well for a start we had the adoption of puppy Sesame. He was reserved last weekend but his new family were unable to take him home until today. However as they are friends of Isa, she decided to look after him for a week so that he would not be lonely at the SPA, all his siblings having left. Today he went to his new home, and has already been renamed Ranger!
Today the SPA was invited to Maxizoo. This pet store (which does not sell animals, incidentally) has been running a recent campaign to collect tins of cat food for an organisation of their choice. And lucky for us they chose the SPA. Since the 13th of this month we have watched the pyramid of tins grow ever higher. And to end the campaign, volunteers spent the day at Maxizoo talking to customers and accepting donations for all the animals at the refuge. As ever we are grateful for the generosity of our supporters, and also to the managment and staff of Maxizoo for thinking of us and for their hospitality. As well as bags and bags of dog and cat food and toys, the grand total was 1085 tins of cat food!
Many thanks too to everyone who visited us with their dogs, especially the dogs we knew from the refuge itself. So lovely to see them all looking so well and happy.
Back at the SPA we had the adoption of Rex. He was abandoned in April when his owner decided he no longer had time to devote to his dog. Poor Rex, at seven years old, would he find love again? Answer : a very big yes. For a start, all the staff and volunteers loved him, as Rex is adorable! And then yesterday a couple who had recently lost their brittany spaniel came to look for a new Brittany and were instantly drawn to Rex. They returned today to spend more time with him and they were smitten. Great news for this lovely lad.
So two dogs are in new homes tonight and the dogs and cats of the SPA have lots of new treats thanks to our friends at Maxizoo.
Many thanks to Maxizoo
