Hi guys, this is a post we were hoping not to have to write.
You may have noticed that we have been appealing more than usual for donations towards the sick and injured individual animals vet bills. We are extremely grateful for every penny we get and the support from you guys has been amazing as usual.
Hopefully soon we will be able to get back to the hard fundraising we normally do..... of course we will be playing catch up ....but we will do our darned best...its all we can do.
We did work very hard last year and this has tided us over until now but after paying last months vet bills YourVets......£10,517-02, Manor Vets... £1049-33 (including for long term foster animals) the coffers are very much empty, our vets are amazing and very tolerant and for this we are extremely grateful.
We are now getting to the point where we are going to have to turn animals away and delay surgeries and vaccines etc that have built up during lock down.
If everyone on our page or even half could donate £1 a month (that's only 25p per week) those that don't already, it would relieve a lot of the pressure we are under at the moment and moving forward.
We need your collective support.
If anyone would like to donate please Paypal to email@example.com
PLEASE MAKE IT FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY so we don't lose funds in fees.
We also have a fundraising page and an auction page.
Date confirmed 27th May 2017
Two crazy members of team TAH are going to be doing a zip wire run in May to raise much needed funds for us. Vicky Hodges and Carys Reeves will be zooming across the wire at speeds of up to 100mph :O ...Please support them via their gofundme pages.

Its official.....Dozer has been adopted,and what a happy boy he's looking. Fantastic home for a fantastic dude
Well Foxy lady caught and checked over, wounds are healing well so she had a good spray with RenaSan and she was Advocated. To say she was ungrateful was an understatement but she is strong and apart from the wounds is healthy.

This is Jonesy (as we have called him), he came into the rescue via K9 Search UK. When he was found he had a collar around his waist and was in a state with matted fur and a badly broken leg at the hock. When the vet examined him and removed the collar Jonesy's tummy was very swollen but it was thought it could possibly be a gas build up from the collar constricting him. When he had x-rays on his leg it also showed part of his stomach and there was a lump inside his tummy.
It was decided to operate on this first to see if it was a tumour and, if it was bad, then he would be put to sleep under the anesthetic. With fingers crossed here the vets operated and found not a tumour but a huge stone in his stomach which was removed and then his leg was removed as well.
All in all this little man spent 3 1/2 hours on the operating table and will be in recovery for a while yet. While technically a stray neither of the surgeries could be delayed as not only was he in great pain, they were potentially life threatening.
This little guy is extremely lucky as he was found lying in woodland in a state and underweight. Can we please have healing thoughts and prayers as he is still extremely poorly.
UPDATE 3rd June 2016 - We have just spoken to the vets and Jonesy has made it through the night. He is still at risk more from his surgery to unblock his stomach than the leg amputation but he has managed to eat a little bit on his own. Keep fighting little boy we are all thinking and praying for you.
UPDATE 4th June 2016 - Well although feeling very sorry for himself Jonesy is back in the land of the living. Sitting up and taking notice he's even managed to get up for a toilet break which is amazing. Please keep this little man in your thoughts and prayers that he continues to do well its early days yet.
UPDATE 5th June 2016 - LOOK!! out tough little cookie is on his feet, way to go Jonesy you little fighter. Now be careful and don't over do it. Jonesy went into his new foster home.
