Making a difference... One dog at a time

Asbo’s April Amble

Here is our challenge to you! Between 7-9th April 2017 we are asking our volunteers to step out and help us raise cash for the dogs in rescue. You can do this wherever you live in the country, and create your own team to take part should you so wish?

We want to cover 2017 miles between us and raise £2017 to help dogs in need this Spring. We can provide you with a poster to advertise your event and a sponsorship form to get your friends, family and workmates to sponsor you.

December 2016

And so much has happened since I last updated here – so many dogs have come and gone and sadly some came and are still here ….

Some we lost to illness and others have gone to Fabulous FUREVER Homes and we are so proud of their achievements.

Our fabulous group of volunteers continue to work hard to raise funds and awareness and to help find those homes, and we now have over 420 dogs who have found their Furevers through that network – thank you!

Yesderday In Kennels I Cried…

Yesterday In Kennels I Cried…

First time in a long time. I’m generally quite good at holding it in, but a little boy whose eyes looked so lost and scared and frightened was cowering every time the other dogs barked, every time a loud noise happened. Got me thinking. Why do I put myself through this? I don’t have to! I can just go home and be with my family and shop for Christmas and be totally and utterly bored and unchallenged ………….

WOW

Wow…

Few changes here at FFH with new trustees, new website and new dogs – but still the SAME commitment to Find Furever Homes. There is a home out there for all these dogs, we just need to find it – some take longer than others! If you have a moment to spare we would really appreciate your help in “sharing” their details – whether via Facebook, Twitter or even in an email to your pals! The secret really is to get as many people as possible aware of these dogs and find their Happy Ever After in this way.

Time to Reflect

Time to reflect…

And here we are again, it’ll soon be Christmas BOL!!!

It’s amazing how much has been achieved through the help of our fantastic supporters over the last 8 months, and we are always truly grateful for their support – without that we would not be able to continue doing what we are doing, so a huge THANK YOU is called for.

6 Months! Where Did That Go

6 months! Where did that go?

Wow, doesn’t time fly when you are having fun? 6 months has passed already since Finding Furever Homes launched as a Charitable Trust – and what a lot has happened since then!

If you keep up to date with our weekly blog, you’ll know we are doing our best to try to keep on rehoming dogs – our rescues really appreciate the wider audience we are reaching on their behalf, and so we have seen a steady stream of dogs packing up their rescue kennels and moving off to their Furever Homes – homes they perhaps wouldn’t have found if we didn’t have the fabulous support we do 😉

Time Flies…

Time flies…

It’s a while now since I updated here and again, so much has happened! We have built 2 kennels at Snowdonia to offer another 2 dogs a safe place when their 7 days is up and now launched a campaign to sponsor them ongoing – Colin has a new summer hair cut, 135 dogs have been rehomed with our help, our Rescue Ramble is fast approaching at Marbury Park on the 28th June and I seem to have adopted a dog!!!!!!!!!

Colin’s Story

Colin’s Story…

Sitting here tonight planning my diary for the next 3 weeks and realise just how many of my days are full of “dog” 🙂 I have no time to go to work so had better give up my job (I wish!)

But there is one day that is fast approaching that for ages seemed so far off – on Sunday, 13th April I will go to meet the bus that is bringing Colin to his Happy Ever After 🙂

Update

UPDATE

So here we are, a couple of weeks on (29.3.14) and lots has happened! We have had a really good flurry of activity and energy with the dogs just recently – maybe as people have come out of hibernation and the bad weather is (hopefully) behind us 🙂 We have seen the REHOMED counter moving slowly up, 126 tonight as we waved Bye Bye to Ozzie today – and hopefully will rise again this week with one or two more 😉

March ’14

So here we are, 8 weeks on, and what a lot has happened! We’ve had tears (generally mine, and fairly frequently), we’ve had smiles, we’ve had laughs and we have learned a lot! We have met some fabulous people and had the misfortune to meet some “not so fabulous” people, but fortunately for now, the good definitely outweighs the “not so good”.
