Support ensures we can be there for pets

We had a great time at the opening of our new exercise area, more details next week.

Our plant sale was an enormous success. Once again, the quality of the plants was excellent and more than £1,500 was raised from plants alone.

We received donations of some plants and we thank you very much, but the majority were, once again, nurtured, grown and donated by Karen and Chris, better known as Your Local Blind Man of Bridge Street. They are always supportive of BARK and we are very thankful. We understand Karen has already started growing for next year.

The day was very well attended and thanks must go to all who came in to help – staff, ex-staff and volunteers. We certainly needed all the extra hands.

We always very much appreciate everyone who supports BARK, from pennies in a tin, bagging a bargain at our shop, donating items to sell or for use by the animals, the list is endless. Thank you.

We have lots of cats in at the moment, and lots waiting to come in.

A lovely golden oldie looking for a retirement home is Anastasia. A beautiful grey, she has recently had most of her teeth removed and this has improved her condition. As a stray we don’t know how old she is, or how long she has, but we do know she deserves a warm and loving home to spend that time. Can you help?

Cathy was another stray, thought to be around seven years old. She was very poorly when she came in, but has recovered and been given the all-clear to find a new home. She is a very affectionate cat, who would like a home as an only pet where she can receive all the love and attention.

We took in Spot, a rough coated Jack Russell, a couple of days before our open day. Who knows what has gone in this poor boy’s life? He’s pretty shut down, but with the aid of a bit of chicken and lots of love we hope he’ll soon realise life’s not all bad. Thank you for letting us be there for him.

We have a Family Bingo Night at Paxton Village Hall on Friday, June 16, at 7pm.
