We wanted to give a shout out to a great supporter we've teamed up with this month in order to raise funds and support our charity.
Dylan’s Doggy Treats
This very friendly custom-pet gift creators have generously decided they will be donating to our rescue. They have some lovely items so please check out their page, give them a like and pamper your pouches / pusscats. They also do bunny treats!
Dylan’s Doggy Treats are ran by Dylan and her partner, Daisie. She has worked in the dog industry for 10 years since she was 14 in a dog groomers, as well as has also worked in daycares and has done dog walking over the years.
Over the years, she has learnt so much about dogs and also went to Nescot to take an animal studies course in which he received a diploma. Dylan and Daisie both love all animals and believe every animal big or small deserves to be spoilt and part of the family. (which we at WAR are of course are fully on board with!)
Dylan said "Our chosen charity is Wallington Animal Rescue, in which we will be donating some of our profits to. We would love to get involved in future raffles and money raising events and help this incredible charity raise as much money as possible."
"At Dylan’s Doggy Treats, we made healthy frozen treats throughout the summer providing dogs with a nutritional treat made from fruit/ vegetables and pet safe chocolate/ peanut butter along with other pets too.
We have now expanded to making baubles for pets this Christmas to ensure they have something special. The baubles can have the pets' names, colour/decoration of choice and is filled with yummy snacks (NO RAWHIDE); these can also be empty if owner prefers.
Along with these, we're making heavenly baubles for those who have unfortunately lost their family, friends and pets; filled with feathers and name/decoration of choice. We believe these would make a great reminder of a loved and missed person/pet and make it seem like they are there for Christmas.
There is no limit of what we can do, If you have any questions regarding our treats and Baubles or anything else, pop us a message and myself or Daisie will be more than happy to help ."
How lovely of them, we are ever so thankful for their support and can't wait to collaborate with them in the near future (as well as team members probably buying some pet gifts!), thank you Dylan and Daisie!
Hello everyone, it's been a while!
Welcome to the November WAR blog, hope you've all been keeping well.
I suppose we should start off with the elephant in the room and talk about what will be happening with WAR with the new COVID-19 restrictions/lockdown starting on Thursday 5th November 2020.
Another wave and another lockdown. We survived the last one so we'll survive this one as well, although to date we've lost over £15000 in fundraisers this year so far. But as of this week, here is where our rescue stands...
We're extremely sorry to have to make this change but it is only temporary. We place staff and client safety as a top priority and in these difficult times, we cannot guarantee the safety of our team or potential adoptees due to the nature of the COVID-19 virus and the risks associated with it. We are truly sorry for this!
Today, we are launching a campaign to bring awareness to an often reoccurring issue of animals going missing due to accidentally being trapped in vans and cars., especially in Summer months where cats are seeking shade and cool environments when roaming outside.
When it comes to cats, it's well known they'll be looking for the next warm, sheltered comfortable spot to take their cat naps in. And sometimes, that just so happens to be in cars and vans.
Share, share, SHARE...
We have created a campaign on Facebook to spread awareness on the issue and to give advice on the best steps to take if you ever come across the issue.
Please also consider reading our web information page about the campaign, which contains lots of helpful tips and precautions you can take to ensure you don't end up with an unexpected furry stowaway in your vehicle.
Hi all, hope everyone is enjoying the sunshine!
In light of the sudden heat, we wanted to make a quick post sharing a great article that provides information on what to do to ensure your pets are safe in this hot weather.
Pant, pant, pant...
It is so, so important to keep your pets cool in this heat... as failing to do so can result in life-threatening conditions such as dehydration and heat stroke.
