Still so many comings and goings at kennels

We knew we'd been particularly busy over the last month, but everything was a bit of a blur so we didn't consider how busy until we realised we'd rehomed more than 60 animals '“ 64 to be exact.

Berwick animal rescue kennels

What is worrying is that we still remain full. What would have happened if we hadn’t been rehoming so fast?

But there’s not much use in worrying about what might have been and instead we count our blessings that we were in a position to help. That is all down to the support we received from our supporters near and far. Thank you.

Linda Greives recently took part in the Great North Run, with sponsorship of £100 going to BARK, and Rettie’s, of Hide Hill, Berwick, sponsored walk raised more than £900. They are both amazing and very much appreciated amounts.

You may have noticed the large number of cats coming through the kennels recently. Yet more came in last week, including some real stunners.

Peanut and Milkshake are four-year-old silver tabbies, lovely natured and ready for a cuddle.

Lots of the cats have unusual colouring, but two black and white cats with unusual markings are Harry, who looks like he is wearing a black hat, and Troy, who looks like a black and white Bagpuss.

We still have some rabbits under six months, all very pretty and some quite fluffy, as well as some between one and six years looking for homes.

We have several little dogs, including Rosie, Ben, Rolla and Kitta. All these dogs have individual needs and just because they’re small doesn’t mean they don’t need, and deserve, lots of exercise.

Jeff is an affectionate border collie and in the next week or two, as space permits, we have more collies and a lovely golden old Labrador due in.

Our Harry Potter inspired raffle is running until the end of October and apart from the usual venues, there will be an opportunity to buy tickets at Galedin Vets open afternoon in the Ramparts Business Park, between 2pm and 4pm.
