Aid for Alfie

AlfiePoor Alfie arrived at Animal Helpline in a sorry state. His ears were full of pus, his paws were chewed, and as an older Lab (8y/o) he desperately needed our help.

Rough Collie Ricky Update 2


Ricky 4
Ricky’s owner passed away suddenly and he is missing them dreadfully.

Ricky 5

Ricky – 8yr old rough collie is still looking for a loving , forever home.

Ricky wouldn’t ask for much just a slow walk, a cuddle and a brush – He loves being groomed !!.

A quiet home where he can enjoy his twilight years. He is so good looking and definitely ‘stands out in a crowd’.

Please e mail lynn@dogsinmind.co.uk and share this post with friends. Thank you.

Little Hope

HopeThe reason Dogs in Mind supports Animal Helpline Wansford is because they will always give the oldies a helping hand. Look at this little sweetie who arrived at the rescue at the weekend and is currently in a lovely foster home.


Here is their write up about Hope:

Hope has recently come into our care in a pitiful condition. His coat was badly matted and he had hair loss from flea allergy , his nails were so long that they curled round into the pads of his feet .hope went straight to a foster home to recuperate but Unfortunately for hope his troubles did not stop there . The vet discovered a large mass in his abdomen which has required extensive surgery and once over this he will require a large dental surgery as well .

Hope is perking up in his foster home and likes the company of other dogs . He is no trouble what so ever and his favourite thing is to curl up in the arm chair by the fire . Although his long term future is uncertain for now , we are still hopeful that someone may feel they can offer him a home for what ever time he may have left . Ahh so Hope finds a nice comfortable home to live out his days……..
