Berwick’s BARK news

Next Wednesday, October 19, we have a quiz night starting at 7.30pm at the Tweedmouth Bowling Club, £10 for teams of four including a light buffet.

Then on Saturday, October 22, we have organised a range of stalls, to include jewellery, china, embroidered items, chocolates, pet portraits as well as many other popular items just right for buying unusual and unique gifts, at the Guildhall, starting a 10am. We will also have a BARK cake and tombola stall and any donations would be appreciated. We will also be serving light refreshments.

When BARK takes an animal in we commit to making sure they have a home for the rest of their lives. Once rehomed if ever they find themselves in need of our help again we will be there for them.

Sadly in the last couple of weeks we have had to help two dogs that we rehomed many years ago. Rhona, a tri coloured collie was originally rehomed by us six years ago. She is a very people friendly dog and walks fairly well on lead. Deena, has just come back to us after four years. She is a brindle and white boxer, now seven years old. She loves people and lived with another dog, Clyde. Clyde is a similar age. These two have lived together for a long time now and it would be nice to be able to rehome them together but for the right homes we would separate them. They are, however, very strong on lead.

Tigger and Midnight, two of the cats that have had kittens are now ready to go to new homes. Both are slight build and their names describe their colouring. Both of these cats are affectionate and enjoy their food. We have several kittens who will be ready to go to new homes in the next couple of weeks as well as several mature cats. The two strays are now ready for new homes so if you are looking for a longhaired pastel tortoiseshell or a short haired ginger tabby, Muffy or Wendy might be the cat for you, please give us a ring.

We have some very friendly rabbits. With winter coming this give the ideal opportunity to spend time indoors with your rabbit.
