David Crane, Hon Sec for the Saluki Welfare has sent me the following:
’Saluki Welfare is in good shape as 2016 draws to a close. A total of over 20 dogs have been re-homed by our Welfare wardens over the period June to November. This has involved a great deal of effort by all concerned, but has proved to be immensely satisfying with happy hounds and doting re-homers.
There are some interesting possibilities in the New Year, with new innovations planned for Snippets and Welfare’s new Facebook page providing a direct communication channel to Welfare friends and supporters. Also look out for new quality items for sale on the Welfare Stall at the Shows, a very valuable part of the fund raising work.
Welfare are currently building a network of saluki folk who have committed to assisting in re-homing through carrying out home checks on potential re-homers or transporting dogs towards their new forever homes. We are always keen to hear from others who can offer their help, particularly with short term fostering, often for one or two days only. This saves money in kennelling fees and is more beneficial for the dog concerned.
If you can help please contact Jacqueline O’Curry on Jacqueline.firstname.lastname@example.org in the South and David Hartley on email@example.com in the North.’’
Happy 80th birthday to Peter Yardley.
