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.

We love to run and play. It is a lot of fun and it makes our human companions smile.

When we were adopted from the shelter our playful nature helped us to settle into our new pack and into our new lives.
