Dog of the Month
Miss September - Polly
This gorgeous girl has an adoring 'mum' who cannot be separated from her. Her comment, which we cannot beat, is "The hardest part of having Polly has been the separation anxiety. I can't bear to be apart from her, and haven't left her side yet." Lucky Polly, every dog should have such a devoted owner.
Could you foster a dog?
As ever we are in desperate need of foster homes for our dogs. The input of foster carers is vital for the dogs we take in. It gives us a chance to assess the dog so that we can do our best to match the dog to the right home. It also gives the dog a chance to settle down, gain confidence and all too often health, before they move to their new and permanent home. Most dogs only stay in foster care for a short time, one or two weeks and it is our aim to find new homes for dogs as fast as possible. We do occasionally get a dog that needs a bit longer but not that often.
We have one foster carer who has not been without a foster dog all year. It would be nice to be able to give him a break from time to time. If we can get a large enough bank of foster carers it would mean that we could ask for help from time to time but not often.
If you think you might be able to help and you live in Caithness, North Sutherland or Orkney please complete an adoption form specifying that you are interested in fostering and we will be in contact to talk about it.
We will have some seriously cosy comfortable dogs in foster homes this winter thanks to the sewing skills of a lovely lady who has transormed some donated duvets into lovely beds to fit either crates or baskets. She has asked if anyone has any material which is fairly durable and washable that is cluttering up the airing cupboard to please consider donating it so it can be transformed into quilt covers. Cotton flat sheets, duvet cover or cotton curtains would all make great covers. If you have any that we may be able to use please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to arrange pick up or drop off points. Thank you.
