A vey special boy Edward!
Thanks to our supporters we are able to help Edward build some muscle in his back legs with hydrotherapy. Edward travels well in his crate & is very relaxed in the car. He loved getting attention from the ladies at the hydrotherapy & he was an absolute delight when we had to wait outside as we were early. He sat nicely & didn’t react to the other dog. Edward behaved so well & it was amazing how he took everything in his stride.
This lad has a wonderful personality that really shone through today on our first trip out. Edward is certainly a lovable clown!

Annual Greyt Greyhound Picnic 2018
It was a privilege to help out on the day and raise some money for Kama`s Cave Greyhound Sanctuary. It was a very windy and rainy day but despite that we had a cracking time and managed to raise just over £1000. A bit thank you to Paul Hindle for inviting us!
Animal Helpline annual Fun Dog Show 2018
We had a fantastic day running annual Animal Helpline fundraising dog show. It was a hot but absolutely wonderful day, we met many dogs who where homeless and awaiting patiently for their forever home. We raised whooping £ 2589.20 for ongoing kennel refurbishment.

Little boy Carrick testing new harness!
Here at Dogs in Mind our ‘4 paws package’ is about working with a lot of nervous dogs mainly from Romania.
We have been asked about the harnesses we use and thought we would highlight the ones that we would recommend.
We have found that these harnesses are…
* Easy to fit
* Resize when required
* Work as a thunder jacket – on some dogs this is great ! not all.
* Dogs can not pull out of them -Although we use 2 leads at first on nervous dogs.
* Handle on top which can help you if the dog becomes fearful – Not good if dogs are prone to biting.
As with all harnesses the nervous dogs must be introduced slowly to them ,which means lot’s of introduction sessions with high value treats.
Here’s little CARRICK looking for a home at Animal Helpline modelling the ferplast harness.
Well done Carrick!!
Beta`s Land visit in 2018
We visited Bet`s Land rescue in Romania. It was a hard week working in scorching Romanian summer, we cleaned kennels daily, fed, brushed and cuddles many dogs! It was a great reminder of never ending challenging work Aurelia has to do to keep all dogs and cats safe and well.

Sponsoring 2 dogs who needed their front leg amputated.
Here’s a little update on two Romanian dogs who had their leg amputated to improve quality of life! Both dogs are doing well and are adapting to their new life!
Blacky – he was taken out of public shelter by Aurelia and where sadly his front paw was chewed off by other dogs. He got used to using only 3 legs but in the long run his damaged leg would cause him issues with his back, it simply had to go. He is recovering very well and is still the boss… in the yard and is ruling over the other dogs!
Beta – this beautiful and gentle girl was found wondering the streets with half of her front leg missing, and it was clear that she was ready to say goodbye to it. We don’t know what happened to her at such a young age… Beta is recovering well and soon will be ready to find her forever home!
We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who has supported us in our journey.
Please be assured – you do make a difference!

Little abandoned puppy in Romania!
Demi is a poor little puppy found alone trying to survive in Romania…
Luckily Aurelia from Beta’s Land Rescue took baby under her wing and she is currently fighting horrible Parvovirus and remains at the vet for life saving treatment!
We are glad to be able to help this little monkey and send £75 over to Aurelia to help cover part of the cost for this puppy.
Demi has found a forever home in Germany and has grown into a stunning lady!
Tiny Tim in need of a surgery for his leg!
We are so pleased to be able to cover Tiny Tim’s little operation at Kama’s Cave Greyhound Sanctuary. While Tim was going through the surgery he managed to lose his family jewels! ( hehehe )
This chap came into the rescue with a broken leg and needed a surgery.
We are pleased to say that he recovered well and has found a forever home!

Children visiting Animal Helpline!
It was great to meet up with children from Park House School this week and answer all their questions regarding Dog Rescue.
Fella & Bella enjoyed their walk with the visitors and were so well behaved. Here at Dogs In Mind we believe educating children about homeless dogs is the way forward.
Fella & Bella have found a forever home!
