Supporters, some great news to start the weekend - Benson has been homed!
Benson, now named Bertie, will live with Pat, Les and Vicky in mid Wales. He is also now related to adopted Makants hound Saffron so we look forward to photos of them together on family meet ups, congratulations to all.
For our Friday Feature this week we throw the spotlight on new girl Jem.
As five year old Jem only arrived with us earlier this month we are still in the process of getting to know her.
However, what we can already tell you is that she is a very friendly girl who walks well on the lead. She loves people and also loves to play. Jem is slowly getting used to the outside world and is taking all... new experiences in her stride, however at the moment she finds other furry creatures quite interesting!
As Jem has only been with us for two weeks we will continue to assess her progress and share with you. If you would like to find out more about Jem or any other available hounds please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249, or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988
This week it's the turn of recently adopted hound Jake.
Jake spent several months with us in kennels and was in poor condition when he arrived - he wasn't too keen on small dogs either! Volunteer Dave often walked Jake and was keen to take him for 'sleepovers' at his home, spending time with his own three dogs.
Over time Jake appeared to like what was on offer and Dave found it harder and harder to return him to kennels after each stay. Last September Jake went for a 'holiday' at Dave and his Mum's house and there he remains! They adopted him on Good Friday this year, exactly one year after they adopted Makants hound Charlie
Jake now takes turns with Dave fundraising for Makants. Dave says 'it's now like being a football manager fielding a team for fundraising!'.
We have some wonderful news to share with you - Jake has been homed!
Jake was taken out of kennels during a hot spell in September last year by our regular volunteer Dave (the spade) and never returned! Jake now (officially) lives with Dave, his mum and canine companions Duke, Sabre and adopted Makants hound Charlie.
Dave says Jake has now become Charlie's fundraising apprentice!
We wish them all every happiness and look forward to regular updates.
