Natures Diet Donation
Ahead of the Christmas period, when many dog and animal charities are struggling for both support and resource – with a rise in unwanted pets both prior to, and after, the holiday – Naturediet looked to provide as much additional support across the country as possible. December is also a critical time of year for wildlife charities, with many of our native wildlife suffering in the cold, especially hedgehogs who are not yet large enough to survive the winter.
Carol Orrow, Naturediet CEO says; “There are so many charities in the UK looking after abandoned dogs and animals, many of them small local charities who – unlike the large well known organisations – only have limited funds available. Therefore, we decided to help these charities; specifically those who do such a great job.”
Ahead of the New Year, Naturediet donated more than 70 tons of their range of natural dog food products, to dedicated and hard-working charities all across the country. This year Happy Landings were delighted recipients of several pallets of quality food that will help our animals no end, so big thanks to Naturediet for their support!
Dog Show and Fun Day 2016
We may be a small charity but we make a massive difference. We rehome over 300 animals a year.
We are now appealing for your help, this weather is affecting us REALLY badly. Kennels is flooded, cat pens are flooded, pig stable flooded, goat shed flooded and lacking a roof, just to mention a few places on site. We have totally run out of newspapers and towels and any you can donate would be appreciated.
Autumn 2015 Newsletter
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.
