URGENT WARNING - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Saturday 19th April 2014 - It has been brought to our attention that there is a group on Facebook purporting to be raising funds for an emaciated Akita who was badly treated at his former home. This appeal is using the photographs and details about Duke who was in our care from March 2013 until September 2013 when he was successfully re-homed and is now living a wonderful healthy life requiring no medical treatment.
Those behind it are trying to scam money out of people under false pretences by claiming to have a dog which does not actually exist. More information can be found on our Facebook page
We do not use kennels, instead we have foster homes, which enable us to see the animals behaviour in a home environment, then any problems can be dealt with and we can re-home them to the most appropriate place. All prospective adopters will be home-checked. If you live outside the Birmingham area and would like to adopt a dog, we will need a veterinary reference and copies of two recent household bills. Please check with any rental agreements or Landlords to make sure that pets are allowed in your home.
PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT REHOME TO ALL DAY WORKERS.
All dogs are kept at foster homes and the adverts will show the contact name and number for that home. Please contact them in the first instance as they will be able to advise you better.
We also run a feral cat-neutering program, where feral cats are trapped and the females are spayed and the males are castrated. The cats are then released back to where they came from, as hardly any feral cats become tame. Those that do are re-homed. This helps to cut down on the number of kittens born each year, which will in turn keep the colony going.
All our work is done with the aid of donations, and street collections with all money collected going to pay for food and our massive veterinary bills. If you can help us in any way either by donations of money, blankets/duvets or food, please contact us. Also needed are volunteers to help on street collections, veterinary runs with animals (car required) and picking up food from various collection points around the Birmingham and Oldbury areas.
