So what's happening Pingu?

I am currently doing some tinkering behind the scenes to add in some features I want in place before I do the reorganisation.

during this time you may notice your member group changes, weird buttons appear.. and then vanish and slices of toast suddenly materialise before being eaten by a low flying puppy...

all is well and will be working fully over the next week.

rescue wise I have some really nice stuff going in that I hope will be of use to you for both re-homing and fundraising.. provided it all works properly of course...

URGENT: 7yo spayed staffordshire bull terrier at Longmead Vets, Shaftesbury, Dorset/Wiltshire border needs a Rescue space/Foster.

Owner took her in to be PTS due to a change in his circumstances & inability to find her a new home. Vet's refused & have held onto her, for now but can't for much longer and time is running out. Black brindle with white socks & called Tollie (Tolly?). In good health. Has been pet passorted. Was the only pet in the house. As yet unsure of how she is with other dogs although she has no 'dog warning' on her Vet Records(!)

I may be able to get a friend locally to look after her for a few days but nothing more. Can help with transporting. Other than that, anyone any ideas/space?

My kind friend can take her for a week to save her from being PTS but then she's off on hols. So I can buy her a weeks grace. Thereafter this girl really needs a Rescue Space/Fosterer if anyone can help, which I know is a tall order this days for staffies :-(

Try Rescue Remedies, they may be full though.

Could Bullie SOS or Bullies In Need help? I'm sure you've tried them already, but thought I'd mention it anyway because it's the only thing I can come up with :(

Thanks guys.

GREAT NEWS! Rescue Remedies are going to provide backup and a space if needs be. Friend is going to Foster her for two weeks. Will give us time to assess her and hopefully rehome her from the Foster home (fingers crossed). HUGE HUGE thanks to Rescue Remedies and my lovely friend.

We pick her up in an hours time from the vets!

This girl is now safe but obviously needs a new and lovely forever home ;-)

Rescue Remedies are a fantastic rescue, they have overe 80 dogs in their care at the moment, most in kennels, they are struggling with the finances at the moment but still giving back up to this dog. They are true dog lovers.

I've just seen on the Rescue Remedies website that Polly is also now reserved. Posted Image

What a great week for her and Roxy, just one week ago they were both facing a one way trip to the vets, but now they have the rest of their lives to look forward to with loving families of their own. If only all staffies were as lucky.
