Loss of a beloved pet is always very sad
The kennels have been open over 12 years now, although BARK has been helping animals much longer.
I suppose it is natural that we will hear from some of the many owners in those years letting us know that their beloved pet has died.
While we are always grateful they have received the love and care they deserve, there is always an element of sadness.
While some of them have had many years with their owners, others are only with them a short time, and although that is incredibly sad for everyone, we are always thankful that someone was willing to take a chance on an animal that only had a short time left.
We constantly get enquiries for kittens and puppies, and although that is understandable, we do get lots of animals, particularly dogs, that have been let down as youngsters.
Kita is one such dog. She has already been in another rescue as a pup and rehomed.
She’s a beauty, very bright, but that brightness was not correctly channelled so now unless she understands what is expected of her she makes her own, usually wrong, decisions.
Given the right leadership, she is a super girl.

She would make a brilliant agility dog and would more than repay any effort put into her.
It’s not long now until our event at Berwick Rugby Club on February 23.
Tickets are almost sold out and it is unlikely that there will be an opportunity to buy on the door so do contact us if you need your tickets.
There is lots planned, with entertainment by Gary Dun, a disco, buffet, paying bar, auction, including a rocking horse among other excellent lots, a raffle and tombola.
Auction lots will be listed online on Wednesday, February 21, so if you are unable to get along, but would like to offer on one or more of the lots, please do get in touch.
We would appreciate any donations for our tombola or raffle, which can be dropped at our shop, kennels or Wot-A-Clip.
