Berwick’s BARK news

Our shop is very busy at the moment: with the ever- changing weather the volunteers work tirelessly to ensure the stock fits the needs of its customers. We very much appreciate all the donations. Our shop is open 10am-4pm every day except Sunday. Apart from being a hive of activity you can enter the shop’s monthly raffle, and catch up on fund-raising events as well as getting information on our animals.

We have our mile-of-coins bucket there and we have just reach the first 1/8 of a mile on our third mile. Last week we received a very generous anonymous donation. Thank you very much.

Noah is a lovely 20-month- old lurcher type who is mainly white with some brindle. He is a lovely-natured boy who appears to get on with other dogs and has lived with children. He would prefer to go to a home where he will have company. Lexi has settled well and is enjoying being out and about. She is a stunning German shepherd who has had little training but is keen to learn. She needs to go to an experienced home that will give her the extra time and effort she deserves.

Teddy, the one year-old labrador, is continuing to progress. Todd has taken on the role of ‘old hand’ at the kennels and is showing how well behaved he can be while other dogs around him are misbehaving. He will make a great companion to a human and will return your effort with lots of love.

Pepper is a 3½ month-old black and white kitten with quite the loudest purr. He was originally very nervous but now he loves human companionship, and would be better with older children. Marmaduke is a longer-haired white and tabby cat who is around 12 years old. He loves companionship and has a gentle meow. Ali is medium-haired and about five years old and mainly grey. He just loves a chat and a cuddle and will enjoy a lap to curl up on.

Our rabbit shed remains full, from white to black and lots of greys in between. Please consider getting a rescue rabbit, they will return your trust.
