Dear Foley, I’m sitting in the summer house on the old rocking chair. Well, a glorified shed, overlooking the pond with fixed shelf style seating covered in cotton gingham cushions, then bits of things for the garden, like string and old worn, protective gloves. Grandad has just fed the fish. Saddle the biggest Koi Karp … Continue reading Dear Foley – In Loving Memory
It is fact that the nicest people in our society are healers, rescuers and volunteers and that includes people sharing news across Social Media. These are the people that are giving most time to help the less fortunate and sadly the same people who are often 'most' exploited. The vilest act any human can do … Continue reading Tips for Volunteers – Rescuers and Healers Supporting Rescues Worldwide by UKRescueConnect
Here’s Kris and Karlyn in the West Midlands UK raising funds for animal welfare. Thanks to the people who donated items to Kris this week. She is delighted! And more donations coming in. Every penny counts. Working together can achieve wonderful things for nature and the Animal Kingdom. What a great job AniAid Rescue is doing for the innocents. Those little fluffies without a voice. We need to always try to stand together and help the animals. Carboot sales are great to get out and play, meet new people, raise money for causes … and … find new things to paint!
A very warm thank you to Gaynor for sharing her creative talent – crafting ‘beautiful’ artisan jewellery to raise funds for the #DogBus Appeal. A cause hosted by Kristyn Adams who is committed to saving healthy strays and abandoned pets from Council pounds around the UK.
Each piece of jewellery was lovingly hand-made by Gaynor who is a highly regarded, well established British artist. Despite the fact Gaynor suffers with acute Fibroglioma she is never far away to lend her hand to the smaller causes who need her support.
As we all know social media can be very cruel and competitive where ‘lone’ volunteers and ‘aid’ workers feel ‘often’ frustrated by the pecking tree. I myself being one of those, until recently when I took a step back from the abuse. Life can be very unkind, sadly, often in the animal welfare circuits. But we must remember most are…

This brave woman refused to accept that she could not afford a wheelchair suitable to go across grass with her two rescue dogs. She fought for her wheels. She is one wonderful person. Sheena is in pain 24/7 with a chronic disease and is also a cancer survivor. Volunteers and kind people came together to help raise enough money so Sheena enjoy could enjoy nature. Things we too often take for granted. A role model.
Sheena campaigns for animals in her spare time.
Not a day goes by I don’t miss you. You were such a good boy. I’ve got Evie now and Angel still wonders where you are. You were my little boy and nothing can replace your memories. I do have days where I feel very sad about losing you but I am glad we went through it all together and I was lucky enough to hold you whilst you left your earth body. It will haunt me forever. But then there was peace.
Don’t ever be far but don’t be so close you forget your time over rainbow bridge. Thank you for understanding me, accepting me and most of all for leaving me with a love that I never thought possible. My little darling boy.
A few months we ran a small campaign for Sheena Ashby over at UKRescueConnect to get a wheelchair that would be suitable for her to have some freedom and walk her rescue doggies. Sheena is a cancer survivor, campaigner and activist with a heart of gold and suffers various ailments which leave her in constant pain.
I am so pleased things are coming together for Sheena. Plus hoping for some lovely photographs to show you later of Sheena in action with her new wheels!
UKRescueConnect have been working behind the scenes to find Sandy a new loving home in the UK. Ideally in the West Midlands region. She is a beautiful dog with a soft temperament. Ideally suited to someone who wants sofa cuddles and has time to give to her. She is fine with cats and dogs but I could see her as that special one and only. She…

Many people already know the story of how 87 year old, terminally ill Bob Harvey sold the family home so that he and his wife Margaret, who suffered from dementia, could move into a private sector care home, along with their devoted dog, a miniature Schnauzer, to be able to see out their lives together in safety and to live out their days with dignity and respect. They moved into Burnfoot Hall & Coach House, one of 7 private care homes run by Mead Medical Services Ltd, because they were promised ”a Home for Life”. Margaret’s condition deteriorated and she sadly passed away after 2 years at the Home. But Bob & their dog stayed on.
Mead Medical enticed them in with many promises and reasonable fees. But those fees subsequently increased 200% and the provider calculated that, after 4 years, the proceeds from the property sale and savings were…
