A week in the life of Rain Rescue
Very busy week at Rain again, beginning with us getting the keys to
our new charity shop – exciting stuff- so many people volunteered their
time and efforts to help us clean, paint and try get things organised for our opening.
The sign went up and on Saturday we opened our doors.
Digby found a fantastic family of his own, this lad was a wreck when he came into kennels.
He was trying to climb out of the kennels and chew his way out.
He went in to foster with Claire and family after 10 teeth out, the vet thought
he had been chained or locked up and had tried to chew him self free, he was so thin he couldn’t even eat he was in so much pain and never once did this boy grumble, he is so full of love.
He was afraid of dark enclosed spaces so we think he had definitely been locked up somewhere.
What a difference 3 weeks in foster made, he was like a different dog, so much more confident and relaxed and when his new
family came to meet him everyone knew they were perfect.
Our sweet Staffy girl Annie was adopted by a perfect mum and dad, this little girl went
into foster with Claire,Tom and Kieran to help her recover from the dreaded kennel cough. She was suffering seperation anxiety when her foster
family weren’t with her and we were all worried about
finding a perfect home for her.
This lovely little lady was so scared when we found her in the pound, we still can’t understand how she came to be there due to be
put to sleep.
A lovely guy got in touch about volunteering in our new shop and asked about a couple of the dogs after sadly losing his own.
He went to meet Annie and the rest is history, they adore her and are around 24/7, she is so happy and so are we.
Foster mum Claire was eager for another foster so we took young Jazz over
and she was such a little star, she loved the sofa and cuddles and knew exactly where the biscuits were kept.
A fabulous family came to meet her on thursday and fell in love with her, They came to collect her on Saturday and take her to her new home.
Her new big brother couldn’t wait to get her home to play ball and go for a walk in the park.
Trotter our terrified Terrier has also found a fabulous family and a home of his very own.
This week we have saved 4 new dogs from the local pounds.
Beautiful big Molly, such a happy bouncy wonderful girl.
He has now gone into foster with his Auntie Nicky, she says he is a little nervous but he’s an absolute sweetheart.
Young Robbie, this boys last owners left him tied up in the garden and then moved home without him.
He absolutely loves his toys and playing ball and is only 10 months old.
Honey a lovely, lively older girl.
All of them left to die in the pound.
We’ve also saved another six dogs in the last 2 days;
Scared young Olly, he didn’t have a clue what was
happening but now he will know what it’s like
to be loved.
Such a gentle boy, boxer cross only around a year old.
Gorgeous Staffy girl China. She is around 3 years old, great with other dogs and loves to curl up and sleep in a nice comfy bed.
Beautiful Staffy girl Bella, only a young girl. She is good with other dogs and likes her walks with China.
Loves her toys.
Also our 2 golden oldies,
Both have spent so much time being overlooked, people want younger dogs?
These 2 ladies are both in foster tonight and are getting to know what it’s like to be loved again. Both are very loving ladies despite everything they have been through.
Our lovely young staffy Spud’s family have been in touch, as have Monty (aka Benny) and Rolo’s family, all are doing great.
As always we have had so many calls from people needing help, and even though we are full we do try to help and try to find solutions
and ideas to help. We are such a small charity relying entirely on the donations we beg for. All our volunteers doing what they can/when they can
outside of their own jobs.
All utterly dedicated, and yet we still manage to save so many that would have died without help on so little donations.
Please spread the word about Rain Rescue, help us to keep going because we really are trying, but we need support and donations to survive.
Thankyou to everyone that has donated and supported us it really does mean the world to us and the death row dogs.
