BILBO our Star dog is so pleased to be sharing his bed with a new girlfriend at Animal Helpline, Wansford this week. Bilbo was one of our first dogs to be supported with our ‘Help 4 paws’ package and we smile when we remember how far he has come. He is a smashing little lad who so deserves a home and we are looking forward to that day when we see him nice and snug in a new home. Bilbo has only half an ear which is where in the Romanian public shelters they pull out the markers without any care for the dogs. It doesn’t bother Bilbo . When we first met Bilbo he was a frightened little soul although with time and patience he is starting to show what a great little dog he is. He loves the company of other dogs and once he knows you his little tail never stops wagging. He has a great little character and we at Dogs in Mind look forward to taking him out and about in the coming months to get him used to the big wide world. We will be sharing Bilbo’s story over the next few weeks. We have all 4 paws crossed that 2018 will be Bilbo’s year !
Teddy was saved by Animal Helpline Dog Rescue almost 2 years ago! He is a little Poodle cross puppy came into a rescue from pound in neglected state. He went straight into foster home and shortly afterwards it became his forever home!
Teddy is just super cute and is ready to have an early night!
We have already got next years Animal Helpline Dog Show booked, please add it to your next years Diary. A great opportunity to meet AH dogs that have been re-homed and celebrate the life of AH Founder, Ros Norman.
Date for Next Years Diary:
14th July 2018 – Animal Helpline Fun Dog Show – The Haycock Hotel, Wansford
Our Team had a really good day at the Autumn Food and Country Fair and the Showground on Sunday. Dogs in Mind organised and judged the fun Dog Show as well as having a Tombola, raising funds for Beta’s Land in Romania. Animal Helpline also had a stall of allsorts of bargains, raising funds for the rescue dogs at AH.
The weather was excellent, better than we could have wished for really.
Bilbo arrived at Animal Helpline over a year ago with his brother Prince all the way from Romania. We chose to support this duo with our ‘Help 4 Paws’ package and after many months Bilbo is now ready for a loving, forever home.
It has been a journey for this sweetheart and as a Dogs in Mind team we have learned so much about rehabilitating nervous doggies, especially from Romania.
Bilbo has a little part of his ear missing which makes him super cute & is proving to be a fun loving chap. He enjoys the company of other dogs and often makes our Dogs in Mind team smile as we remember how he was when we first met him. It is a privilege to work with these dogs at Animal Helpline and gives out team the motivation to make this world a better place for these homeless dogs & support them with their demons.
Bilbo & Chris!
Bilbo & his brother Prince!
A BIG THANK YOU to Animal Helpline for caring & finding these dogs loving, forever homes.
Dogs in Mind paid for Chance and Sandy to be neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
Two of the Dogs in Mind Team, Lynn and Santa visited Romania recently to work with our good friend Loaca Aurelia of Beta’s Land. With a small amount of funds raised by the sale of our collars produced by our very talented team member Santa we were able to support two doggies at Beta’s land. We paid for them to be neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
He was named Chance because Beta’s land gave this doggie in a church yard with wire tied round his neck a Chance of a better life.
A frightened soul who at first we thought was blind. A difficult job to catch but Aurelia with patience soon got him into a crate & then we were off to the vets. During our stay at Beta’s land we watched Chance improve and show what a beautiful soul he is. He seems to know a few commands and loves the company of other dogs. We made a nice, cosy shelter for him.
Aurelia will keep him at Beta’s land until he finds a home.
We at DiM have all 4 paws crossed that someone will give him a kind, loving home.
She was named Sandy because she was laying in the sand & two of our team members have dogs called by this name. This doggie is a street dog who lives in a lovely village where the people feed her and she has a nice shelter to sleep. Sandy has had pups in the past and Aurelia wanted to stop this happening again. After a while Aurelia was able to catch her & after being spayed Sandy has been put back into the village to live a happy life, free to spend her days roaming in the village being fed and cared for. It was wonderful to see & today we have received a picture of Sandy back where she belongs.
Thank you to Loaca Aurelia of Beta’s Land who makes this happen. A Doggie Angel for sure X
Kama’s Cave has taken on a homeless Saluki boy with a broken leg.
The work that Ann does at Kama’s Cave is an inspiration to our team here at DIM. We are true supporters of this wonderful breed who are often discarded after their days spent on the greyhound track , they can lead abusive lives and we are so pleased to be able to support this rescue.
Ann has taken on this Beautiful Saluki, who, due to unforeseen circumstances has found himself homeless with a broken leg. Ann took him to the specialist vets, he is now out of surgery, all has gone according to plan – he has had a plate fitted and now he is now back at Kama’s Cave for lots of tlc.
Dogs in Mind have been able to donate £300 towards this beautiful doggie although his vet bill is already £700 , high vets bills is often the challenge at small ground force rescues. We plan to raise more funds in 2018 to support Karma’s Cave with their work supporting The Greyhounds in their care.
We were also able to provide £100 of food as a Christmas present for the dogs.
Thank you to Ann (and her Team), who supports and saves these doggies – an unsung hero !
Here at Dogs in Mind we love to support the doggies that arrive at Animal Helpline gates frightened of the outside world. Animal Helpline give their lodgers the love, care and a warm place to lay their head, although these Doggie Angels are often run ragged with the many daily duties required to keep the Rescue going.
This year we focused on 4 doggies named Prince, Bilbo, Charlotte & Carey who all needed some support to fight their demons. You will find information on our work under the Animal Helpline section . We are pleased to say that Prince & Carey have now found loving, forever homes and we are so looking forward to updates from their new owners.
Bilbo & Charlotte still wait for that call and we at Dogs in Mind will continue to support them.
Here’s a little video of Charlotte now with her friend Pharo. We smile as we watch how Charlotte is helping Pharo to overcome his fears and Pharo is showing Charlotte how to play. Once again we realise that our team Dogs in Mind may not change the world of homeless dogs but just maybe we will make a small difference to a few. Charlotte our STAR doggie.
A BIG THANK YOU to Animal Helpline for not only saving these beautiful souls but allowing us the privilege to work with them and be part of their journey.
