Well hello folks! The name's Snoop. I can be a little shy until you get to know me....you know? Any way, I've been asked to do this Mews Report. Sooo, here goes.
It's been a steady, if not spectacular past few weeks here at Abbey Street. They tell me 69 animals found their forever homes in August. Bless their furry feet, I wish them all well. Hopefully it'll be my turn this month. But I digress. 44 cats, 9 of my fellow canine-kind, and 16 small furries (rabbits, mice, rats etc) all left the centre. A special shout out to cats Maddison and McKenzie who after 2 months, finally found somewhere to rule the roost. Sam, Zeus and Tyler all found somewhere too. Zeus was an excitable lad who still needs to grow into his paws a little. Sam the whippet has settled well with his new friend Spot. Tyler is an older boy of 10 years (just like me!) who caught the eye of a young couple. So if Tyler can find a home, I'm sure the right person is there for me.
Last week we had 7 dogs arrive via an inspector. That may sound like a lot, but there were 29 of them in the home! The guys and girls that came here are shih tzu, shih tzu crosses, and a standard poodle. They are all 4-5 years of age, (the poodle is 10 months old). They've settled in well thankfully and are a lovely bunch. I expect they'll get a lot of attention, so I would say get down pronto to save being disappointed if you are after a smaller dog. (Below: Here we have Roxxy).
But we do have one famous face still here. You may have seen him on the local news, on Facebook (whatever that is), or in the Derby Telegraph. I am of course talking about the young 3-legged rapscallion by the name of Ralph. Despite all his stardom, he still hasn't found the right home. I've been asked to say if you have the time to bring up a 20kg puppy who will benefit from plenty of training, and won't be left too long, then get in touch. He needs to be in a home after the appalling start to life he had.
A couple more notes to mention: Dog fosterers... where are you? Abbey Street could do with you. Anyone wanting to foster a pooch in need, ideally would have no other pets, preferably no children (though that's not essential, all cases will be considered based on experience), own their own home. It would be great if they weren't out for too long either. If you may be interested in dog fostering then do pop down to the centre and have a chat to us. Or call us on 01332 344620, they would love to hear from you.
Well that's it for this week my lovelies, I'm going to see if I can get a well earned nap on a lap somewhere.
Toodles, Snoop (not to be confused with my cousin over in America, a Mr. Snoop Dog)
