On behalf of the admin team I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year and hope 2018 is a good one for you all.
We want to thank you for your continued support over the last twelve months, we couldn’t do what we do without you. We have had another successful year, as well as taking in and re-homing 16 dogs we managed to purchase a new van.
When we look back over the past year, there have been some very stressful and sad times, but together as a group we have overcome most and more importantly so have the dogs.
Without a doubt the best fundraiser was achieving our target and purchasing a new van. We cannot thank you all enough for your donations and shares. A very special thank you to Toni who on behalf of her belated in-laws, Gordon and Diana Leadbeater, donated a large sum of money that they left in their will to go to an animal charity.
Unfortunately, this year has been very difficult to find the right homes for a lot of the dogs we have in. Although we have some great applicants, the dogs needs do not suit most of the applications therefore we still have several in rescue, these dogs have been with us far too long and desperately need their happy ever afters. Druid, Timber and Petra especially.
2018 is starting off as a busy one as we will be welcoming Hexe to the WdR family, Hexe is going straight into foster and updates will follow. We also have Nari stilll looking for a suitable foster placement.
On top of our main focus which will always be dogs in need, this year our focus and aims will be to educate and raise awareness. We are adding new venues and events that we will be attending this year, as well as organising our own WdR show again in Dorset. These events are great for fundraising, but also to raise awareness and educate people on the breed. As always it will be great to see as many people and dogs as we can, so please do come along and show your support. Events and dates to follow shortly.
Happy New Year everyone and again thank you all so much xx
