Happy ending for our golden oldie Holly

We were so pleased that golden oldie Holly was able to get a new home last week. She was a lovely old soul, although we dare say she won't be without a few settling in problems.

Berwick animal rescue kennels

No animal deserves to be in a rescue, but when they are that bit older your heart goes out to them all the more.

We took in a stray cat a few weeks back. A lovely old boy, tabby, missing a few teeth and very thin. He’s recovered well and been checked out, and the official diagnosis is he’s a golden oldie. We named him Stan Lee (there was logic behind this name somewhere) and he is now ready to find a home. Warm and cosy, and probably without other pets or ones that are very sedentary.

Sweep, the rabbit, is slowing down and has a few aches and pains. We would dearly love him to find a, possible inside, home for him to spend his retirement.

It is, of course, a very important decision taking on a pet and we are only too pleased when potential owners put a great deal of thought into taking a new pet into their home. Changing your mind is never a problem.

The i newsletter cut through the noise

Although usually we are open for viewing between noon to 4pm Tuesdays to Saturday, we currently have puppies looking for homes and due to nap and feeding times we have operated an appointment-only system.

Surprisingly, of the eight appointments made only three turned up, so we still have pups looking for homes.

We would appreciate it if you would let us know either by email or by leaving a message on our answer phone if you have changed your mind.

We try not to take too many enquiries per animal to avoid disappointment. However, by doing this it can mean a super pet spends much longer than with us than necessary if we don’t know those potential homes have pulled out.

We have lots of dogs in, including Hugo, a lovely working cocker (as opposed to show), and Teddy a pug cross. Neither of these dogs are suitable to live with children, but visiting slightly older children may work well.
