Thank You for Spreading the Love

We are delighted to share that we are sponsoring a kennel with the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, also known as the SSPCA, at two of their Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centres.

The SSPCA is Scotland’s largest animal welfare and rescue charity with nine Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centres across the country. They rescue, nurture and rehome animals, investigate abuse and play a vital role in research and education on animal welfare.

You can read more about the amazing work they do and watch a lovely introductory video on their website.

In addition to sponsoring the kennels at the SSPCA we were able to sponsor a special kennel at the Scottish Greyhound Sanctuary in support of the Macau greyhounds. You can read their story in the post Helping the Hounds of Macau and a further update in Edge of New Tomorrows.

We are also very grateful that we could make a small donation to Dogs on the Streets (DOTS), a charity that cares for the dogs of the homeless and helps to find them and their owners suitable housing. You can read more about this story in our post My Friend, My Rock.

These are all small steps that are part of a longer journey.

  1. Aww that’s AMAZING Xenia!! Congratulations!! What a wonderful act of kindness for hounds. The rehomer charity that we adopted T from has shared a lot of news about the Canidrome finally closing & greyhounds being rehomed. Such mammoth task. I saw that some were being fostered by a Scottish charity. What truly wonderful folk you are. Lots of love from T & me. πŸΆπŸΎπŸΎπŸ˜˜πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Penny and for all your support πŸ’œ The international rescue operation of the Canidrome hounds was one of the biggest we’ve ever been blessed enough to support and we are so happy they are safe now. Hope all is well with you and much love to you and Tia from all of us here πŸ€—πŸΎπŸ’–πŸΎ xxx

      1. And what a relief to know the Canidrome is closed. What those poor hounds endured. Our previous sighthound adoptee before Tia was a retired Greyhound. And what an absolute beauty he was. It took months for him to let us gently touch his ears. They’re such a misunderstood & abused breed. So many of them desperately need their forever sofas. And what a huge help you are towards that happening. Sighthound superheroes!! Much love from here.πŸ’–πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  3. Do Eivor and Pearl realize they are ‘working dogs’?! What great work you and they do to help others in need. We rescued a sweet two year old recently and my recent loss of Emmy is slowly receeding as this new young man is winning me over. He, too, is ‘working’ hard for a place in my heart, my bed, and has done a terrific job thus far. Will be introducing him soon…

  5. So kind of your to sponsor a couple of kennels, Xenia. Very kind of you to think of others and their pets. The least we can do in this world is to help one another in any way possible. Keep up the good work πŸ™‚ ❀
