Dog Sanctuary

We are very happy to announce that Winston a young adult male white german shepherd has been rehomed. He came into the kennels as a stray and stayed with us for several months. He was not a fan of the kennel environment which put a lot of people off from adopting him. Once out on a walk he was a lovely boy and very obedient to basic commands. He has since been adopted by a loving family and even has a new friend to play with in the form of a yorkshire terrier. We wish him all the best in his new life.

This sweet lurcher female came into the kennels as a stray in very poor condition. She was absolutely amaciated and had developed deep inflammed sores on her elbows and hips as there was not enough fat to protect her bones when she was laying down. Despite this the kennels staff were amazed at her happy personality as she was more than willing to come over for hugs and cuddles even though it was clear she had very little energy and was previously mistreated. She was instantly put on a high quality diet three times a day and her wounds bathed frequently. After just one week she had put on 2kg and her sores were healing over nicely. We were so pleased with her progress that she was put up for adoption and soon after found a loving new home!
