It is hoped that some of the BARK dogs will join in so if you would like to sponsor the team, or the dogs themselves, donations can be made at the Hide Hill Branch.

It’s been a very busy couple of weeks, with dogs coming at going at the kennels.

We’ve had five collies in and, fingers crossed, they should all be away to their new homes very soon.

Sometimes dogs come in and their feet hardly touch the ground before they’re off to their new homes. The only hold up can be seeing the vet and having a home check. However, others stay with us for much longer.

Millie has been with us over a year. She is a small sized Staffie, brindle in colour, in double figures, but so lively and loving.

She is over exuberant around other dogs, and when being put on lead she does tend to get very excited and try to chew it. She loves to play and loves her bed, the squishier the better.

It can’t be right that she is spending so much time in kennels.

The two corn snakes are still looking for new homes.

Bread is only young and has previously been confirmed as a female, while Gary we are unsure of, but are putting at about three years old. They are both well-handled and eating very well.

Nutty is the most loving rabbit. Having brought up her litter of bunnies she is now ready for a home of her own. Any owner will be getting a really super girl, friendly and affectionate, and very well handled.

The Hop Inn is full with all the extra bunnies, but we also have two one-year-old male guineas looking for homes.

Peek-a-Boo is an Indian ring neck parakeet. It’s true to say not well handled, but does like being out and about flying.
