Animals impeccably behaved at busy event

A huge thank you to Direct Pets for hosting our microchipping event last Saturday.

As anyone who was there will know it was very busy, but we managed to microchip all 147 dogs and three cats that came, and all were impeccably behaved.

However, we are sure there will still be many dogs not yet microchipped, and with this becoming law in April it is essential to get this done to avoid the possibility of a fine (as if not getting your dog back wouldn’t be a good enough reason).

So please do contact your vet, many of which have special offers on.

We are busy at the moment with cats needing spaces, many of them in pairs or more.

A lovely threesome joined us this week. Lucky, Gizmo and Gypsie are all very pretty coloured cats, two short-haired and lone semi-long haired. Sadly they came in with fleas so their coats are not in great condition, but a bit of extra TLC will soon have them looking their best.

Beth, the blue and brown eyed, eight-and-a-half-year-old collie, has settled well into kennels. We find her a real sweetheart. She is an energetic girl who likes to keep herself to herself around other dogs.

She will make a great companion for someone who enjoys walking and generally being out and about. We are looking for a village or country location for her.

Another dog that has settled really well is Marley, the four-year-old Labrador. He is very keen to learn and is enjoying the routine of the kennels as well as extra walks and exercise. He will benefit from an owner that will give him lots of training to stretch his mind as well as his body. He is going to be a pleasure to train and be very satisfying.

Billy is a lovely Beagle type cross, he doesn’t like other dogs but is walking well around them, and with that training continuing, as long as he is on lead, he will be a very rewarding boy.

He loves his cuddles and he has a look of pure bliss on his face when he gets praise or a chest rub.
