Berwick’s BARK news

Thank you to Pearl Sore for holding a Pat-a-dog event for us last week and to all who supported this event. We are very fortunate at BARK to have so many supporters.

Since the kennel extension open the increase in animals has been marked, with both our dog, cat and small animal runs full.

We are very lucky to have the support of both Morrisons and Asda who have collection points so people can donate food for the animals. We would appreciate wet food for cats as we have over 30 cats and kittens with ever increasing appetites.

We have far more animals than we can list in the BARK column so if you think you are looking for a new companion to join your life please consider a rescue.

We have lots of kittens who are now ready to go to their new homes having had their first vaccinations. Mainly black or black and white, some long and some short haired. We also have two mainly white kittens with some tabby, Skye and Fingle, who need quiet homes that will have time to give them a little bit of extra tlc. We are also looking for an outside home for two friendly cats. Again they need a quieter environment so they can relax.

Foxy is a small to medium sized cross, black and tan in colour and a very people friendly dog. He has previously lived with another dog but can be wary of them, certainly in the kennel environment. He walks well on lead and although he is probably around eight or 10 he is very fit and loves to be out and about. Takara is a six year-old Akita. She loves her walks and is good on lead. Sadly she hasn’t had a great life but she doesn’t let this affect her relationship with humans. Rhona is a nine year-old tri colour collie. She is fit for her age, loves her walks and is always interested in what is going on.

Our rabbit shed has some beautiful rabbits in. From pure white to jet black and a fair few colours in between, ranging in age from a few months to about three years. We also have one male guinea still waiting for a home.
