Many ways to help our animal friends

We certainly hit the New Year running with 22 animals being rehomed in the first week since we re-opened and five stray dogs being reunited with their owners.

Berwick animal rescue kennels

Sadly, there is no let up at the kennels, however, with animals adding to our waiting list daily. BARK being in a position to help is thanks to your support, thank you.

There are many ways to help the animals who need homes, including volunteering.

We have spaces at the kennels for enthusiastic volunteers to help between 6pm and 8pm. We ask for one regular shift a week.

We also have more sociable hours at our shop, generally between 10am and 1pm, or 1pm and 4pm.

And we are looking for a volunteer driver to help with collection of donations. Please contact our shop direct on 01289 309225 to express interest, or why not pop in?

Cats looking for homes are five-month-old, jet black Michael. He’s a shy boy who wants to be loved, but needs a quiet home, time and patience to show his full potential.

Much bigger is Jax, probably around three to six years, and very affectionate, always ready for a chat.

Another shy cat is Maddy, pure white and needing a quiet home. She loves a fuss, she just has to appear to remember each time you approach.

Finn is a 16-month-old Beagle type, with good basic training, and even occasional recall. Sadly, he cannot live with children, but is great with other dogs. We are looking to rehome Finn outside the Berwick area, but still close to home so we can offer support.

We have two golden oldies. Tara, a medium to large cross, is around 12 years old. She’s a gentle soul who enjoys walks, loves her bed and needs a quiet retirement home.

Buster is a larger terrier who, despite being 16 in June, certainly hasn’t taken that on board and pulls like a train. He is very temperamental around dogs, probably due to the fact he can’t see them, so he needs to be an only pet.
