2015 was the 20th Anniversary of being at our site here at Pylle.
We moved here in May 1995 under the new name of Happy Landings, Annabelle Walter (Founder) having sold Heaven’s Gate to the National Animal Welfare Trust which she founded in 1983.
We have rehomed 100s and 100s of animals in that time and made a great many new owners very happy (see success stories later in this newsletter). It is a privilege to work with the animals that we do and to help them find new homes. It is also very special to hear people comment on how we have made their homes and family complete again.
We have had quite a few stray dogs bought in to us recently, only a small portion were micro chipped and therefore reunited quickly with their owners. All the rest were collected by the dog warden and taken to stray dog kennels to wait out their 7 day holding period. If not claimed by an owner during this time then the lucky ones will be moved to a rescue centre to be rehomed.
It is so quick and easy to find an owner by the microchip number, which means less stress for caring owners and far less stress for the dog!
Remember, by April 2016 all dogs over 8 weeks old must be microchipped by law.
