• PLEASE HELP THESE LOVELY DOGS…

    Jan 16 2014

    DO YOU KNOW ANYONE THAT CAN ADOPT ONE OF THESE GORGEOUS DOGS FROM INDIA? THEY ARE BEING FLOWN TO EUROPE IN A FEW MONTHS – ALL PAID FOR. Please pass on the word or contact me.

    As you probably know, Avis Lyons, the inspirational woman behind the ARK rescue centre in India, is  having to close her dog sanctuary. This is for various reasons including that Avis has suffered ill health for many years.

    She is left with many gorgeous rescue dogs that she refuses to abandon. These dogs were rescued from horrible conditions on the streets or  were abandoned by their owners. Avis desperately needs your help to find them homes..

    All of the below dogs have been fully tested and will be flown to Europe for rehoming in April. If you or ANYONE you know would like to give one of these gorgeous dogs a better life please write to me on:

  • DAY 191: BUY PRINTS TO GIVE MANGO A NEW LIFE

    Apr 04 2013

    bringmangohome

    Meet Mango. She is the puppy that  Network forAnimals and myself rescued from the street where they sell dogs for the meat trade. I want to bring her home by selling prints of her. Please help!

    Shivering, chained to a wall and covered in ticks we bought her for $4 and got her to a vet. Now I desperately want to bring her back to the UK for a new life. It will take a few months…and some money.

    I’ve stupidly promised to bring her back. But to do so I will need at least £750.

    I need your help! I know you’ve given so much already but now I’ve gone and done it…I want to give a puppy a whole new life and somehow we are going to make it happen. Many many other dogs like mango don’t have this chance.

    TO SEE THE PRINTS SCROLL DOWN

    This is how we found the puppy, chained to a wall in a dark corridor. We think she is 3 months old.

  • Day 78: Do you have Britain’s Cutest Staffy?

    Nov 30 2012

    An online competition to try and show Britain that these dogs are more loveable than their reputation would have you believe.

    Could I set up an online photo competition to gives these dogs a bit of a PR makeover?

    It was time to leave Greece.

    Although I’d seen a lot of dogs in distress and helped with the day to day running of the wonderful CARE sanctuary (including carrying a fair amount of raw shit into a hole in the ground) it was fair to say I hadn’t saved any animals.

    Pah.

    But something very important had happened.

  • Day 75: Is caring for animals a bit mental??

    Nov 26 2012

     

    Is there an animal shaped hole in my heart?

    Do people that care intensely for animals have something missing from their lives?

    I think maybe I do…

    I have spent two days and three nights feeling crap about leaving that little dog behind in the dust and darkness.  It’s glinting eyes are still burning a hole through my heart. If only I had quickly climbed over the fence, if only I had been braver then by now it would be on the way to Germany and a better life. My moment of indecision was it’s lifetime of misery. This seems a sorry  exchange.

    But why do I feel this strongly?
