Kennel Rebuild Update – May 2018

The kennel rebuild goes on, despite delays due to the recent snow and then the endless rain, which created a sea of mud! Slowly, the empty site is beginning to resemble something that looks like a building. The bridge is now completed, timed just right before the snow came. The groundworks for the first block have been hampered by wet weather but it is now gaining height and the design is finally coming to life. Concrete base done, inner skins in and actual brickwork happening! If the better weather stays in place, the builders can get back on track.

Thank You to Tug-E-Nuff

Those great folks at Tug-E-Nuff have kindly donated us some of their brilliant bungee toys for the dogs in our care. It’s not easy being a dog in kennels, it can get pretty boring at times waiting for your new family to come along and choose you, so any toys that are tough enough to take too much doggy love are perfect to keep our canines occupied. Thank you!

Thank You to RS Groundworks Ltd

We have had another huge donation for our dog sensory garden project, this time lots of compost, bark chippings, sand and fixings from the wonderful RS Groundworks Ltd, who recently adopted Toby the dog from us. Thank you! All these donations means we will be starting work on the dog sensory garden in the next few weeks – we are very excited!

Thank you to DartExe Ltd

We would like to say a huge thank you to DartExe Ltd for kindly donating a new colour photocopier when our old one died. We just called them to see if they could fix our old one (they couldn’t – it has gone to the photocopier graveyard) but when Clive Barnett, a Director of DartExe, found out who we were he instantly said he could help with a donation of a replacement. Thank you Clive and all at DartExe Ltd. Top people!

Easyfundraising

If you are a regular online shopper, why not shop through Easyfundraising and support Little Valley Animal Shelter at the same time?

It works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop ,you raise a donation for your cause instead. It’s as simple as that! You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 2.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them!
