Here are the names of some of the kind folk who provided dog toys, treats, dog-beds, and dog coats,
Barbour types & duel purpose, fleecy / rainproof overcoat ones most through the 'Amazon Wish List'.
Susan Gunn, Donna Chambers, David Wright, Margaret Fordham, Di & Trevor Simmons &  Sue & Pat Reehal.
some of you wished to remain anonymous, our collective hat is tipped to you too, thank you.

Unfortunately some parcels did not identify the purchaser, so if your name is not here we would love you to contact us,
so we can thank you here too.
We are so grateful of your generosity, see Ringo smiling and Eddie playing with a donated 'Boomer Ball' below!


Donations are going to increase the well being of the Rotts in our charge, feed, warmth, and vet bills
here's 'Jimmy Mac' having had some spent on his entropian problem. The love and care come free!
JimmyM JM
JimmyMac, having been fitted with his satelite dish seemed to enjoy his new found super-power' of directional barking'!
And here is the 'New Look' Jimmy Mac he says please thank all the folk who donated to get rid of my eye irritation!
So, Thank you all those folk that donated towards Jimmy's Eye op!

He is also rehomed! (see the rehomed page)

came up with the 'Wish List for Christmas'.
It produced loads of treats for the Dogs in our care.
Ringo was so happy with his coats, he loves
his 'Barbour' it keeps the rain off his back, and his warmer
'Burns Night' coat is lovely.

Modeled By Ringo
Here's our Ringo doing his modelling bit showing off two of his coats that Santa
brought him, one via the Christmas wish list is actually thicker and a 'two in one' for even colder weather.
His Lovely Tartan Coat was donated by the Priestley Family.

Eddie and a donated 'Boomer Ball' (and he still hasn't managed to pop it)!

Thanks go out to all you lovely people that chose to use the 'Wish List' as a donation route,
your generousity continues to both humble and amaze us.

The Amazon wish list was so successful we will run it again later this year.

We can't let the seasonal thank you's go without one very big enormous one to
Margaret Fordham and her wonderful clients at for very generous donations.
She is also a patron of our sponsorship scheme.

How Much is a Christmas 'Wreath' Worth?

Well, its worth what you can get for it!

Rosemary made this one. She and Gwen decided it was worth a raffle, so they traipsed it around Oswestry
and sold raffles tickets to businesses, shops and anybody else who they could sell to, raising a grand total of
£127 for RIN.
Stirling effort girls, thank you very much indeed
