Re-open for homing after festive break

Our kennels reopen for rehoming this Saturday, January 5, and what lovely animals we have looking for new homes.

Just before Christmas we had a litter of four, mainly black, kittens handed in after being found at our local rubbish dump in a box.

To be fair we don’t believe they were abandoned, let just say they weren’t as pleased to see us as they might have been, rather born out in the wild.

With handling over the holiday period they have turned into lovely characters. Named Boswell, Sabrina, Kelly and Jill, they are now ready for new homes.

We are surprised little Boris the hamster didn’t get a home before Christmas. She’s a lovely girl (yes we know, but the name really suits her hair style), doesn’t mind being handled and has a lovely, inquisitive nature. Sadly, we don’t have an age, but she is certainly an energetic little girl.

Over Christmas we inevitably had to take in some animals and full details of these are on our website.

Tara is a nice girl, maybe a shepherd-cross, around 12 years, who walks well on the lead, although can occasionally decide she needs to go somewhere and you’re going with her. She doesn’t appear to have any vices and just wants a warm, loving home for her retirement.

Benny the husky is a smashing boy. He walks well on the lead and is very adult friendly. He has had some issues with his legs, which means he needs much less exercise than usual for a husky. Fortunately, Benny appears to know that reduced exercise is good for him and is a very content boy in the kennels after his short walks or playtime off-lead.

A dog that would not be happy with short walks or playtimes is,one-year-old kelpie-cross, Gypsy. She is a super girl, sociable around other dogs, so bright and loving (unless you’re a cat). She will do well in an energetic family with time for exercising her brain, as well as her body.

Last year was a good year for BARK with your support and lots of new homes.

Part of this success is down to our regular column that the Berwick Advertiser donates to BARK each week. Without it, we know, the animals wouldn’t get the exposure they need to find their new owners and we are enormously grateful for its ongoing support.
