A busy week with lots of strays coming and going from kennels

It’s been a busy week with lots of strays coming and going. The latest stray to arrive is a black white and ginger cat from the Alnwick area. Probably teen in years but very friendly.

We are surprised Bess the collie pup is still with us. She is a lovely girl and really needs to be in a home for these important first few months of her life. She will need to go to a family without children or with older children. A very bright dog who will excel at training.

Fundraising, either through our shop or through our fundraising events is vital to the ongoing success of BARK.

Our next open day is Saturday 4th October from 10.30am to 1pm. Please do come along and see all kennel areas and what your support achieves.

One of our supporters Sue, organises our recycling programme. Currently we are able to get 4p for each outer biscuit wrapper. So if you are anything like us at the kennels that’s about a pound a week we can get through.

If ever you needed an excuse to eat more biscuits, guilt free, raise money by recycling. The individual wrappers also raise money. So be it a packet of your favourite chocolate digestives, jammy dodgers or individual chocolate bar, they can all help BARK.

We also recycle the wrappers from baby wipes, tassimo cartridges, used pens, phones. The list goes on. Full details available at our shop, the kennels or online. All donations can be dropped to the shop or kennels. Thank you.

Buster the staffie is doing well now. His skin has settled and he is such a happy loving boy. He could go to a home with children and possibly an easy going cat.

He is seven years old and although he has had problems with his skin in the past these are now well controlled.

Please consider joining our Friends of BARK scheme and make a regular donation to BARK each month.
