Hi VanillaRat. Than you for your welcome. I hope to be able to upload some photos of my two dogs. Boss and Reno over the next few days. I have a problem with my camera.

Welcome to the forum .)

Hi Canadiancritter. Thank you for your welcome. I have a German friend in Spain who has a Bar called the Gecko Bar. There are literally thousands of Gecko statues large and small spread all around the bar. Customers to his bar collect them for him when ever they go on holiday. I brought him one back from Panama. Not a real one I might add.:spit:

Hello and welcome, is it manchester city dogs home you donate to?

Hi charlie28. Thank you for your welcome.

I like to donate to Manchester & Cheshire Dogs' Home.

Manchester Dogs' Home

Manchester & District Home for Lost Dogs was founded in 1893 by a group of Manchester Businessmen who were concerned about the large number of stray dogs roaming the City.

The leading members of the group included Mr. Megson a printer and stationer, (who's firm is still very active) and Mr. Alfred Nixon a leading Chartered Accountant in Manchester , it was his son and partners who continued to play a leading part in the administration of the Home until shortly after the last war in 1949.
Over the years the City of Manchester has grown around Manchester Dogs' Home and it is now very much an inner city rescue centre. To off set the inner city environment of our Manchester Home we regenerated a run down site that is now know as Cheshire Dogs' Home

0871 918 1212


Cheshire
Dogs' Home

In 1999 we purchased a former run down boarding kennels, this has become the flagship of the two homes and a Centre of Excellence.

The site is 11.5 acres in total with a Specialist Care Unit for dogs that provides intense care for the dogs that need it the most, pregnant *****es, nursing mums and dogs that do not adjust well to the traditional kennel environment at Manchester Dogs' Home.


The work we do
We take in and care for over 7,000 dogs every year, many of these dogs are never reclaimed by their owners and require a great degree of emotional and physical support during their stay with us.

In addition to the Specialist Care Unit at our Cheshire Home, we also utilise a wide range of behavioural and mentally stimulating activities at both Homes to ensure each dog receives personal care and attention.

Once the dogs are fit and healthy they are made available for adoption, we are always looking for caring permanent and foster homes for our dogs and often have over 250 dogs that are waiting to find that perfect family.
0871 918 1212

Please have a look at the wonderful work that these caring and dog loving people have done.

Hello angel, I am also a teacher from Leeds in the UK but I teach history and politics, maths is way over my head :D

So lovely to hear that you do so much for dog charities, there is a really bad situation with animal abuse in the UK especially with the increase in antisocial behaviour on the streets. It's horrendous the things you hear on the news that have been done to defenceless animals. I think what you and those who work for animal charities do is very admirable.
