Firstly we need to say a huge thank you for all the love and support you have all shown WdR during an awful few days due to Nobby and myself being the ones who were there for Blaaid at the end and of course because I run the rescue we have taken a lot of personal abuse, so I would like to personally take the opportunity to say that both Nobby and myself have been humbled by all the lovely supportive comments, messages and calls we have received and of course the beautiful flowers and yummy chocolates I received too. I’m sure everyone has seen the post regarding poor Blaaid, but if not, we had to have the gorgeous Blaaid euthanised. RIP Blaaid, run free and happy big lad xx
We would like to welcome John and Sandie to the WdR family, they have officially adopted Hades. He is doing really well and settling in nicely, slowly getting over his fear of travelling. He is loving his new adventures and cuddles. He will soon be off on great new adventures when his passport arrives, lucky boy is having better holidays than me! Must say a huge thank you to Toni for fostering him and putting in the work that he needed to have his happy ever after, thank you!
We would like to welcome Adrian and Nikki to the WdR family too; they have adopted the lovely Loki. Very early days but initial reports and updates are very good. Think we can safely say that Loki is a very loved boy! We must take this opportunity to thank Rob and Ruth again for fostering and giving a very thorough assessment on Loki, you guys are great and really helped him on his way to his forever home. Thank you!
Unfortunately we have had Lana back this month and had Meeya signed over to us too. Both dogs are now in foster care and being assessed, updates will follow.
We need to say a HUGE thank you to Nidge Holmes. He has made custom fit crates for the WdR van, so we are now able to transport dogs safely in very sturdy crates and have enough space left for all the show stock and equipment. We cannot thank you enough, we really appreciate your time and generosity. Thank you, they are amazing and we are over the moon with them!! If anyone is looking for good sturdy custom made crates we strongly recommend getting in touch with Nidge.
Also this month the WdR van has had a face lift by having WdR graphics added to both sides, front and back. Looks great and very eye catching. This could not have been achieved without all your fundraising. Thank you.
We need to say a HUGE thank you to Zoe and her elves for the online Udder auction. The auction was a huge success and Zoe worked really hard making all the toys. Zoe raised £715 towards Takoda’s vet fees and £422 for WdR. Thank you so, so much!!!
We need to say thank you to Caldicot Castle who invited us along to their event, we had a great day and raised £53.89. We also met some great people and some new contacts. We are hoping to arrange a pack walk followed by a photo shoot in the castle grounds in the near future. Special thank you again to Rach & Joe who came along early to help us set up and stayed all day to help out with the stall. Thank you.
We would like to thank everyone who came along to Newark and supported us at the event, we had a great weekend meeting new people and catching up with friends, a special thank you to Sam who came along and spent the weekend working away with us in the stall and doing demos with the amazing Loki and Takoda. We raised £243.49, which is actually a loss after stall fees, but we raised a lot of awareness and helped spread the word. So a massive thank you to all who came along to support us.
