Diesel

22-07-2014

 

Everyone here loves our great big happy pup Diesel. He has transformed a lot over the weeks he has been here and he is now loving playing with other dogs and with people. Strangely, like Ace, he adores big, strong men the most. And, again like Ace, it would be great to get him a forever home with an active, intelligent young man- who will help Diesel live a full and happy life.

 

There is NO minimum donation for Diesel.

Ace

22-07-2014

 

Ace is a huge, shiny dog who adores big strong men especially. He is INCREDIBLY strong (on all levels) but he is totally without malice. Very unfortunately, his original owners gave him zero training, boundaries and guidelines, so, though he is going to be 2 in a few months, he acts like a great big excited puppy - and therefore he daunts a lot of people.

 

His dream home would be with an active, intelligent young man - who would teach and encourage Ace to be the same!

 

He has been here for months already and though he is tolerating kennel life, he is getting very sad to be stuck indoors - he wants to be out and about with his special person.

Mr Beans

22-07-2014

 

Mr Beans is thriving. He went in to a foster home for a week - but that was probably too soon for him going in to a house after living his original home where he was constantly chained up.

 

He was VERY unsure and worried here to start with. But, with the help and guidance of the lovely staff and volunteers here, he is, as one of them aptly put it, really starting to show his true character and huge potential.

 

This is one great dog. We were told he was a staffie cross lurcher. But, to be honest, due to his size and looks, he seems much more likely to be a Great Dane cross Greyhound. Mr Beans loves playing with people and is really obedient. With guidance, he loves playing with other big, strong dogs. Considering his background, Mr Beans is an amazingly good dog and he would love an active, happy, sensible home.

Flo Jo

22-07-2014

 

Flo Jo has had a tough last 12 months. Firstly, her owner had a very bad accident and is still in hospital, with it looking unlikely that he will ever come out. Luckily one of his friends took Flo Jo in but, unfortunately the dog snapped at one of the toddler grand children at the weekend. So, rather then the dog being pts, we have taken her in.

 

She is a 7 year old, smallish, long haired black/grey lurcher lady. She has been living in harmony with other dogs. At the moment, she is very shell shocked and timid. We hope to get her a great forever home asap. In the mean time, a foster home, without babies or toddlers, would be great. Flo Jo has just finished having a season so will needing spaying in 3 months, which we will arrange.

Millie

18-07-2014

 

Millie is a 9 year old terrier cross. She is a smallish dog a little bigger than a Westie.

 

She has spent her life with an elderly gentleman and had very little interaction with other people or dogs.

 

Her owner has been ill for some time now and Millie has been fostered while he was unable to look after her. Very sadly, her owners health has deteriorated and he will no longer be able to look after her. Hence, she will need a new forever home.

 

Millie is living with a number of dogs and is gaining confidence. Although Millie hasn’t had a problem with other dogs, she isn’t particularly interested in them, she would probably be happiest as an only dog with one or more people who could make a fuss of her. She likes to sit on a person’s lap.

 

She likes to be with people but may take a little time to adapt to new people. Some concerns have been raised regarding her with children, this isn’t that she is aggressive it’s just she doesn’t understand new situations.

Lacey

15-07-2014

 

Lacey is a small black and white Springer Spaniel who has been very much loved and very well cared for. Very sadly, she needs a new home. She is 8 years old and said to be good with everything and everyone.

 

This lovely little girl is looking for a 5 star forever home.

Margo & Mario

07-07-2014

 

This is going to be hard. We think Margot is about three years old and has had at least two litters. Probably more. And definitely pups recently. She is incredibly attached to Mario. He is a maximum of 12 months old and is very friendly and happy, as is Margot. He seems like a Beagle cross Staffie. Margot is probably a Staffie cross. She is very unusually marked with beautiful spots over most of her body. Mario has spotty paws and is a lovely rusty colour.

 

The hard bit is going to be finding a home for two young, bouncy dogs together. Hopefully we will find a good foster home where both dogs can really be observed and nurtured so we can find out what is the absolute best forever home or homes for them. They are excellent to handle and seem to be very good with other dogs.

Martin & Mouse Both have now been adopted.

07-07-2014

 

Martin & Mouse, where found straying on the Brecon Beacons, they have just arrived here after spending their waiting time in the Pound. Martin is lovely and very friendly. Mouse is a very cute, unusual looking little chap with massive ears. He might be a Chihuahua cross Russell. We are really not sure. Both are very friendly and just great little dogs. The Pound was very surprised they were not claimed as they are both in lovely condition and just good little guys. Further details shortly, after our very late vet arrives.

 

There is a minimum donation of £200 for each.

 

 

 

 

 

Pink Westie

07-07-2014

 

Well, we had a blue Westie last year - Ruby. Now a pink coloured Westie has arrived. She is 2 years old and has sore skin which the last owner has been treating.

 

This little Westie was called Wendall - but she really deserves a pretty, girlie name. Ideas for a new name beginning with M please?

Tim

04-07-2014

 

Tim, the middle aged Collie, came to us last year in a sorry state. He was found straying on the Brecon Beacons and was very very frail and lame. Our vets x-rayed his legs and discovered he had old breaks on a front and a back leg, neither legs having been set and pinned to get them right. After a few weeks of care and comfort, he got fitter and was able to go and live on a local farm as a companion to the retired, elderly farmer.

 

All went very well for many months. Very unfortunately, Tim went for another dog that appeared on 'his' farm and inadvertently bit that dogs owner when she tried to part the dogs. Even more unfortunately, the lady complained to the local police and has made a very big issue out of this. The police, though very understanding, have insisted that, to protect Tim, we remove him. The farmer is devastated at losing his constant friend and companion. Tim is not feeling much happier either.

 

This lovely lad needs a foster or, even better, a forever home asap please.

 

 

 

 

 

Murray

29-06-2014

 

We are very sad about making this big decision to re-home our 9 year old Jack Russell Terrier Murray. He snapped at our 2 year old son this week. Murray has never really come to terms with the fact that we now have an addition to the family. He was always the baby of the family. He was fine when our son was a baby but now we have a toddler on our hands things have just got harder.

 

I know he will be fine with a family with older children as he loves to run about playing. He loves tennis balls (I mean really loves tennis balls). He also likes a swim which I have never seen in a Jack Russell before.

 

He's very easy to look after. Enjoys sleeping a lot but also loves his walks. He does have a pollen/ grass allergy which flares up during the summer season. We spent lots of money getting this diagnosed. And Langford finally found a medication that works. He initially prescribed tablets called Atopica (50mg) which did the trick but now we just use a steroid spray which is called Cortavance. The tablets haven't been required for the last three years but thought I'd mention it in case things flare up but hopefully this won't happen.

 

 

 

 

 

Seren - Reserved

20-06-2014

 

Seren is a friendly six year old collie girl. Her current owner is having to work very long hours now and Seren does not like being left all night and many hours during the day. Her owner is very sad to have to re-home her but his neighbours keep complaining - which is understandable if they have to listen to many hours of howling each day.

 

She is coming over to us in a few days and we hope she can find a forever home - or even a foster home - asap she that she does not have to spend too long in kennels - she has already been left far too long each day for too long.

 

There is a minimum donation of £200.

 

Update 26/6/14

 

She arrived here yesterday. The owner was very upset. Seren is a great, lovely, well behaved little lady. She is friendly, clean and has been excellent with all the dogs she has met here! A real treasure of a dog.

 

Seren is lucky enough to be going to one of our lovely foster families, who live at Weston super Mare, for fostering this morning. I am sure further updates will follow.

 

 

 

 

 

Swift - Reserved

17-06-2014

 

Swift is a young long-haired collie.

 

The son of the owner handed him in. The owner an old lady, was no longer able to keep him because she had moved into a rented flat. The son worked full time and lived in mobile home so he couldn’t look after him.

 

Swift was in good condition and unusually up to date with his vaccinations.

Truffles

16-06-2014

 

Truffles is a VERY VERY VERY cute young Shih Tzu boy that has recently been rescued by a local Shih Tzu Rescue group. They have asked us to help find him a great forever home.

 

This lovely little dog was said to be 18 months old by his previous owner (a puppy farmer). But we think he is a bit older. Truffles is very thin and very scared at the moment. He is happy to be with the other Shih Tzu's that live in his foster home. So he really needs a forever home with other, friendly little dogs to help him plus understanding, kind people. He is fine with children and ladies - it is men he is wary of (his previous owner was a male).

 

Truffles tongue pokes out in a very sweet way. He is going to our vets soon to be neutered, have his teeth and tongue checked out plus his poor sore ears flushed out. Truffles is not yet ready for adoption.

Rex

16-06-2014

 

Rex was two on the 12th of April. He is very unusual looking, being a Husky cross Staffordshire Terrier apparently. This sounds a weird mixture - but somehow it has produced a smart looking, lovely natured young dog. He was living with a family but took a dislike to the toddlers pulling him around when he was asleep and started to whinge - understandably in my opinion. So the poor chap needs a new forever home with children who will LET SLEEPING DOGS LIE!

Judy & Jessie

31-05-2014

Judy                                      Jessie

 

Judy and Jessie are two very cute, tiny Yorkshire Terriers girls, both aged about 7 years, that arrived from a puppy farm last weekend. They were lucky enough to go straight in to a foster home - where they have both thrived. Judy and Jessie are sweet, friendly little dogs but will need to live with other kind, friendly little dogs. Their foster carer thinks they will be fine to be parted - so long, as I say, they do not go as only dogs.

 

They are being fostered near Bristol.

The 4 K cavs

31-05-2014

 

This time last week, the four Cavaliers were in their stinking kennel - filthy, starving, in great discomfort from sore eyes, ears and teeth. Last Saturday afternoon they arrived here. Look at them exploring outside for the first time (most probably in their WHOLE lives). They are little angels. They are all wags and smiles now. Even the lovely old lady, Karoline. And the old boy Kenneth. As for tiny Kitten and the bravest, Kasey - they can't believe their eyes!

 

'Doing' dog rescue can be incredibly painful and challenging - their joy and amazement helps make it worth while and gives us the courage to keep going.

 

All need surgery. All are still far too thin and frail to be able to have their ops for a few weeks. The vet is most worried about Karoline. She has awfully infected, sore ears. Her eyes are really bad. She only has a few rotten stumps - no teeth. And, most worrying, she has a very large mass on her side. She and Kenneth spent the day at the vets where Karoline had blood taken for testing, her ears swabbed and a fine needle out in to the mass and samples taken. Results will be back next week. She hates being alone - so Kenneth, whom she is VERY attached too, went with her to keep her company.

 

Further write ups and info soon.

 

Good news for two of these poppets, Amelia & Kenneth will be adopted hopefuly on 24/6. Karoline and Kitten will be going into foster soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mollie (Parsons JRT) - Reserved

28-05-2014

 

 

Mollie is a Parsons/Jack Russell, and her date of birth is 30/04/12. She is tan and white in colour and still has her tail. Her last vaccinations were done in August 2012, Mollie has an Identichip certificate and is registered with Anibase. Mollie was neutered on 15/11/12. Mollie has recently gone into her foster home.

Buddy & Tyson - Reserved

22-05-2014

 

Update 22/5/14

 

Here are some new and much better pics of Buddy & Tyson (Tyson is the darker of the two)

 

We have been asked by another rescue to urgently help with two Rottweiler's:- Buddy and Tyson.

They have been used as 'guard dogs' for the last few years this has meant, in reality, just being kept in a small run in a back yard apparently.

They are said to be very friendly but not very well socialised with life. Both dogs are here for assessing and hopefully they will be as lovely as the other rescue says they are and we can get them in to a foster home a.s.a.p after they have been neutered.

They have only really had each other their whole lives (three and a half years) and seem very attached to each other. They live together in peace and harmony so, though it will be a tough ask finding them a great forever home together, it will be wrong to part them I feel.

They have spent their lives, so far, living in a heated shed with a small outside run, So they will be fine here for a little while, but it will be great to get them a fabulous active home.

 

Update 7/2/14

 

Our vet came yesterday 6/2/14 and they performed like perfect gentleman during their health checks where they received vaccinations and micro chipping. Not a growl nor whimper was heard. We feel that it would be best if these two chaps were re-homed together where they are the only dogs in the household.

Rotties can sometimes have a bad reputation, all they need is love and you will have two best friends for life. Please give these two lovely chaps a chance.

 

The donation for these two chaps is negotiable with Rosemary.

 

 

 

 

 

Hedwig

08-05-2014

 

Update 10/5/14

 

Very good news. Hedwig had her chest X~rayed and there was no sign of any problems. The wonderful vet managed to remove the mass and spay her. She had not seen a mass like it before (despite removing many over the years). So it has been sent off for analysis. Whilst Hedwig was asleep, she also had to have nearly all of her teeth removed as they were all rotting and her gums were badly infected in places. As she had so much done, all of which had to be carried out, she was kept in for the night on a drip as a precaution. The vets kindly kept Humbug in too to keep Hedwig company. Humbug was neutered and this lovely little chap needs a foster home too asap please.

 

Hedwig will be going to her new foster family later today.

 

Update 9/5/14

 

Following on from our urgent request for a foster home for Hedwig so she can have her surgery, several of our very special foster families immediately offered to HELP OUR HEDWIG.

 

I was able to book her in for her surgery this morning. The vets will give her another good check over then X~ray her chest to check it is clear of cancer. If this is the case - and I pray it is!!!! - they will operate to remove the mass with as much margin as possible. If they can do this quickly enough, so she does not have to be kept 'asleep' too long, they will do her dental as well as that is urgent.

 

Best case scenario is that it is a benign tumour which can fully be removed and, in this case, Hedwig is going to be fostered by the lovely foster family who gave Brian the best last few weeks possible in his whole life. If the diagnosis is not good for Hedwig, she will go to be fostered for the rest of her life, however long that might be, by another of our lovely foster families who have several other lovely little Westies. Hedwig loves other little Westies to play with. Fingers and toes crossed for Hedwig.

 

We urgently need donations towards the vet costs for Hedwig, any amount will be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Hedwig has been here for a couple of weeks now and has really settled in very well. She is delightful, quiet and very sweet natured. She VERY urgently needs the massive mass removed from her unders but until we can find her a really good foster home with someone to keep a really close eye on her after the surgery, the mass can't be removed.

 

Hedwig is excellent but wary of people. She can only go where there is at least one other friendly little dog - preferably another little Westie as they are her favourites.

 

Please help us to HELP HEDWIG

Lad

01-05-2014

 

Update from foster carer 10/5/14

 

Since being fostered, Lad has come out of his shell and is trusting again although he still needs a lot of reassurance that he is doing the right thing. He is playful, affectionate and obedient and there have been absolutely no signs of food or toy aggression with my other two dogs. His tolerance of traffic is improving by the day. He needs to be praised and treated with lots of love and respect and sensitivity. He is very good with people and other dogs and has met children of all ages outside our home and is absolutely fine with them. He is one of nature's worriers but not in an aggressive way at all.

 

Ideally, he needs a stress-free home with another dog to play with.

 

 

Lad came to us at the beginning of last year as he was an unwanted young farm collie. He has been an incredibly unlucky lad. He hurt his toe badly soon after arriving here and need it removing. The wound took ages to heal. He was then adopted but, a little while later, the adopter had a bad accident and we had to have Lad back. He got adopted again quite quickly and spent a year in that home. They worked very hard and really helped Lad gain confidence and training. Recently the couple went away on holiday, leaving Lad in the care of an elderly relative. Whilst on a walk, Lad got badly trapped in some wire and, in his pain and terror, bit the hand of the lad trying to free him. So now Lad is back here yet again.

 

This time we are looking for third time lucky for him. He is being fostered by a lovely couple and he is very happy living with their other dogs and not being pushed too much. Lad's permanent home wish list includes

 

1. Home with other friendly, playful, happy dog or dogs

2. Right in the countryside with safe interesting walks.

3. Definitely a chilled family who will not expect too much from Lad and will let him develop at his own speed.

Lexy

22-04-2014

 

Lexy is a very loving and well-trained six year old female staffie who I've been fostering since Sept 2013. She loves to have cuddles on the sofa, go on walks and play ball. She's perfectly house trained, walks well on and off the lead, only plays with her toys and never chews anything that's not hers.

 

She always does as she's told - including ignoring the wild ducks that have recently arrived in the garden! She has managed to make all visitors to the house fall in love with her, despite many having previously had no interaction with staffie's and having preconceptions about the breed. In no time at all she's sitting on their knee having a cuddle or making them play ball with her.

 

I have a four year old son who she tolerates but is unsure of at times so she really would be happier in a house with older/no children. She also gets scared when other dogs run up to her on walks so would be best in a house with no other dogs.

 

She had a cancerous tumour removed last Sept - but there have been no signs of any re-growth in the last 7 months and she seems to be in perfect health so it's likely the whole growth was removed.

 

There is NO minimum donation for Lexy, but please bear in mind that we have spent hundreds of pounds to get her fit and healthy.

 

 

 

 

 

Sky

11-04-2014

 

Sky is a 5 year old cross breed girl who is coming to us due to a marriage break up. She has been much loved and her owner is very sad to have to re-home her. Sky is very friendly with people but not with other dogs so she will have to be the only dog in the home.

 

Sky has gone to one of our lovely foster families. This is great that the lovely little girl has gone in to a home. Further update soon.

 

Update from foster carers 6/6/14

 

just a quick catch up to let you know that Sky is doing great and has integrated really well into our everyday routine and is such wonderful company to have around. Anywhere we go and anyone she meets, everybody is simply falling in love with her straight away as she's got such a good-natured personality and is easy to handle in almost any situation. We are very, very close to saying that we'd actually like to adopt her ourselves as obviously she has won our hearts over as well, but we're not quite sorted on all the logistics yet. So for now, if there is a lovely home for her, we'd be sad to see her go, but obviously happy if it was THE perfect home & family for her.

 

There's just nothing better than seeing her big smile when she's out and about!

 

The minimum donation for Sky is £200.

 

 

 

 

Wags & Whirlwind

11-04-2014

 

These lovely little ladies have recently been lucky enough to go in to a foster home where they are being pampered and starting to learn about life as pet dogs after their years spent in vile, cramped cages as breeding bitches in Wales.

 

Wags and Whirlwind are friendly, lively middle aged Shiatsu girls that need to find their forever home together.

 

Donation to be discussed with Rosemary for these 2 poppet’s.

 

 

 

 

Bruno

03-04-2014

 

Bruno is a small terrier cross mainly Jack Russell, but a little longer in the body than the average Jack Russell.

 

Bruno was homed with an elderly gentleman in July of last year. Sadly, the gentleman had a heart attack in February. It has now been confirmed that he cannot return to his home so Bruno needs a new home.

 

Bruno doesn’t like cats, there have been some issues with dogs, but he is living with other dogs now with no problem.

Winter & Wonder

02-04-2014

 

Wonder and Winter are wired haired fox terrier cross miniature poodles, born dual sexed, and now aged 6 months old, having arrived here at 5 weeks old. They have grown in to lovely, happy, lively young pups.

 

Wonder has had her surgery now and is recovering very well. Winter is due to have her op shortly. These two pups are very attached to each other so can only be re-homed together. They have been very well handled, trained and socialised by their foster carer and are ready (as soon as Winter has her surgery) to go to their own forever home.

Tessa & Paddy

31-03-2014

 

Inseparable elderly Jack Russell siblings, Tessa and Paddy, came to us a few weeks ago after their loving owner died. Both little dogs are lovely and have settled in incredibly well with their foster carer, Vicky. They are going to stay with her long term now as it does not seem fair to move them on again. Both little dogs have a few minor health issues and will be now looking for kind sponsors to help us pay their on going vet bills in our new "SPONSOR A DOG" section. Details to appear on the website shortly.

 

 

 

 

Rocky & Jack

20-03-2014

 

Rocky and Jack have been with their foster family for a month and have settled in very well. We now have a better understanding of their characters; both extremely loyal to one another, very affectionate to their foster family and truly deserve a forever home.

 

Without going into a lengthy diatribe of their good and bad points we have put them as bullets below so you can make your minds up if these two loveable boys are for you.

 

The positives:

- They know their names with 100% recall.

- Walk to heal on a lead with no pulling.

- They know simple commands like sit, stay, drop & bed.

- House trained.

- No problems with strangers of children.

- Travel well in a vehicle.

- Happy to sleep in kitchen/utility room at night.

- Seldom bark.

- OK with other dogs.

- Don't beg for food at meal times.

 

The negatives:

- Cats, unfortunately they would not be able to share a house with a cat.

- Both are controllable around sheep, Jack could not care less however Rocky's genes mean he has a keen interest but is controllable by voice command.

 

These are two very loveable dogs, Jack adores a cuddle and is a real ladies man where as Rocky is extremely intelligent and just wants to please.

Alba

17-03-2014

 

Alba is a gorgeous dog from Romania, Dogsfriends kindly agreed to take her in from an organisation that raise funds to bring them over from dreadful high kill shelters, where the dogs are literally beaten to death rather than being pts once the shelters are full.

 

She is a wonderful dog, walks nicely on a lead, appears to be house-trained using a dog flap too. Alba is more Labrador than anything. She loves people and kids but we wouldn't place her anywhere with young children as we don't have a full history on her.

 

However she gets on well with my 12 and 13 year old.

 

Alba would love a home with another dog to keep her company. Alba did have a bout of Distemper, from which she is completely cured now, but does have a post Distemper tremor which means she constantly trembles a little bit. This doesn't cause her any concern or pain but it is just something for potential adopters to bear in mind when they meet her.

 

Could you offer Alba a family of her own?

Oscar

28-01-2014

 

 

 

Oscar is a 6 year old Rottermann who is looking for a new home - either foster or (preferably) forever home - asap as his owner is too ill to look after him.  Oscar's best friend is a little Yorkie and he likes cats too apparently.  He is a bit shy with new dogs.

 

Update 8/2/14

 

Oscar has gone to a new foster home, watch this space for new photos and information.

 

Update 23/2/14

 

Great news for Oscar, he will be going back to his owner in the very near future.

 

Update 7/3/14

 

It seems that poor Oscar will not be returning home as his owner has made the decision that he is no longer required!!!

There must be some body that can give this special chap a good home.

 

Update 1/5/14

 

Oscar is interacting with our 5 other dogs really well. On the lead he does lunge at other dogs but it's obviously because he is nervy and not aggressive. He is an absolute softy. He accepts our cat. In all he is a lovely dog and is fine with people and other dogs once he has got over his apprehension and got to know them.

He is still looking for a permanent home and as his foster carers we will continue to work with him in the meantime.

Jessie

14-01-2014

 

 

Jessie is a striking, chunky, beautiful 6 years old Labrador cross Malamute who has been much loved by her last owner.  Unfortunately Jessie became too unreliable around the cats on the small holding were she lived with her older lady owner/  So sadly she is now here.  She is such a lovely dog.  Poor Jess keeps howling and crying softly to herself when she is left (the Malamute half of her).  But when she is out and about with people, she is very happy, obedient and waggy, especially when treats are involved (that the Labrador half of her).  We really hope to find Jessie a lovely, active country home as soon as possible where there are no felines and the owners are experienced, calm and sensible - in return, they will have a great friend.

 

Update 18/7/14

 

Poor Jess had an accident with her paw recently and had to had an emergency visit to the vets. The vet is very concerned as all her paws are getting sore as she tends to pad around her kennel a lot.

 

Fortunately Jessie has gone into a foster home at last. It is reported that she is getting along very well with Bammy who is neutered 11 year old Ridgeback.

Jessie recovering in her new foster home.

 

The donation for Jessie is negotiable with Rosemary.

Cassie the Rottie

01-09-2013

 

Cassie is a lovely, amazingly good natured 5 year old Rottweiler at we took in last week end.  She had been rescued from an awful situation at the beginning of this year.  Unfortunately, the couple who took her in became too ill to look after her so we were asked to help her. Even more unfortunately, they failed to tell us she has a very bad back leg which will require major surgery to correct and take away the pain.   The couple had spent money on having a large, benign lump removed from
one of her back legs and feeding her up, but they could not spend the money fixing her cruitite ligament that had 'broken' on her other back leg. As soon as she arrived, it was obvious how bad it was.  She saw our vets first thing morning who agreed and her great foster carers brought her over again on Tuesday her full xrays to confirm this.

Update

Cassie is a beautiful Rottie that desperately needs a cruciate operation. Dogs friends took Cassie in and are trying to raise funds. She is an easy foster dog but has had a troubled life, this shows in day to day life. We're sure the right home is out there for her but obviously she cannot be homed until the operation is done . Please help us raise funds for this wonderful girl. The operation will be between £1000 and £1300 thank you. If you would like to donate to help this little lady out, we'd really appreciate it. You can donate by either sending a cheque to us, marked for Cassie or use our paypal button on our website. Maybe you'd like to hold a little fundraiser, like a cake sale or a coffee morning? Thankyou so much for your support.

 

There is NO minimum donation for Cassie, but please bear in mind that we have spent hundreds of pounds to get her fit and healthy.
