By virtue of the fact that you are looking on a rescue charity web site it is clear that you are a sensible and responsible dog lover. We have recently had a situation that we want to draw to your attention. In the space of 5 days we have been asked to assist in the rehoming of 5 dogs, 4 of which are collie pups aged 6 months to 1 year and all bred in a small area. This is a severe strain on the resources of a small charity as you can imagine but more importantly being moved around at this age is doing these pups no favours.
We would like to ask that all you responsible people out there draw this situation to the notice of anyone you come across who is breeding dogs. Please ask them to reconsider their actions before they cause misery to more innocent pups and to the people who take them on without sufficient thought as to how they will manage.
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.

We had some wonderful pictures for the calendar competition and it was a very difficult job for our judge to choose between them.
The winning dogs are: Frankie, Tara, Lola, Sykes, Amber and pic with both Twizzle and Brodie.
There will be six more lovely dogs as well but we will keep them as a surprise for the lucky people who buy the best calendar for 2014.
