Many Thanks to Support Adoption For Pets
We are thrilled and grateful to receive our first ever grant of £5,500 from Support Adoption For Pets. It will have a huge impact by helping us to provide the best possible veterinary care and new beds for our dogs, many of which are elderly or have on-going medical issues.
All our dogs have a veterinary health check on arrival and are micro-chipped, neutered, flea/worm treated and fully vaccinated before rehoming. In addition, we usually receive several dogs with serious medical problems that have to be diagnosed, and remedied if possible, before going to new homes. The award from Support Adoption For Pets will contribute towards these costs throughout 2016.
The grant will also provide us with 10 very special new dog beds. Many of our dogs arrive confused and frightened. Having lost everything with which they are familiar, they often take out their frustration on their bedding, destroying blankets and beds. Kuranda beds are virtually indestructible and will provide raised platforms for the dogs to sleep on, rather than the concrete floor. Also, they will be very beneficial when dogs are recovering from neutering or other operations and for older dogs. They are easy to clean and hygienic. We know dogs love these beds - and happy dogs are easier to rehome.
Thanks to Support Adoption For Pets we will be able to continue to provide the best possible care for South West Essex’s homeless, abused and unwanted dogs and find them the loving homes they deserve.
