We would like to say thank you to Support Pet Adoption and all the staff at Pets At Home Bradley Stoke for their efforts with the recent Santa Paws Appeal.

Today, Gerry picked up a cheque for £1,625.10, which is absolutely amazing and, as you can imagine, is very gratefully received.

Thanks to all our DAWG volunteers who gave up their time leading up to Christmas to represent us in store.

Thank you to Megan and Kim Simpkins-Jenkins for organising the Bingo evening last night.

Brilliant evening which raised an amazing £727!!!

Thanks to everyone who brought along bingo/raffle prizes - we truly have greyt supporters.

As many of you know from last night we had a rather large vet bill on Friday for £794 for a toe amputation on Allen and poor Sally, our ex brood bitch who arrived recently, had to have ten teeth removed as part of a much needed dental, so this evening very nearly covered the bill.

Once again Team DAWG step up to help.

Delighted to tell you that Meg the lovely Lurcher has found her forever home in Whitchurch with Mike, Carol and their grandson Billy. She’s a bundle of fun who loves playing with her toys and her doggy boyfriend Wilson the Maltese cross! She’s also found the bed upstairs and likes to cuddle up to her Dad!

Thank you once again to Kristie and James of Tonew Kennels for welcoming our new dogs from Ireland (from the left, Daisy, Lass and Minty) at some ungodly hour of the night. Details will follow soon.

Diane spent the morning in sunny Somerset finalising the adoption of pretty girl Princess. Now called Runa, she’s gone to live with Graeme and Anita in Chippenham. Have a long and happy life beautiful girl.
Thanks also to Mike and Shirl who did a fine job of fostering her.

More smashing adoption news - the very handsome Roy has found his forever home in Clevedon with Phil and Helen who lost their lovely big boy Wilson so recently. He’s a very calm boy although he did pinch Helen’s bobble hat from the table so I’m sure it won’t be long before he’s up to mischief!! Have a long and happy life Roy.

Greyt news! Glory (now Ruby) moved into her new home in Yatton today. She has been adopted by Dawn and Paul Knight. Thank you both for giving this lovely girl a new home.

We must also say thank you to Catherine and Graham for very kindly fostering Glory for the last three weeks, you have, once again, done an amazing job, and I know you will miss her, but there will always be another!!!!!

Thanks also to our very good friend Eila Moloney for saving this sweet girl.

The last day of the month saw the arrival at Tonew Kennels of three more brindle beauties, from left to right above: Bobby, Betty and Star. Once again, we can never thank Kristie and James enough for hauling themselves out of bed in the early hours of the morning to settle the new dogs in.
