Leah has been in her new home for a few months now. She was very carefully homed into a residential care home for people with learning disabilities. The families have agreed for us to put the pictures on Facebook. Leah’s (was Dalia) new Mum says “My five residents, who have learning disabilities, have been with me over 20 years and dogs have always been part of our lives here. Leah enables them to take responsibility in different aspects of her care, which builds on their self-esteem. She also encourages them to exercise such as going for walks and throwing the ball for her. When our Residents are out walking with Leah their social life is also improved as other dog owners engage them in conversation.She offers comfort by sitting on their knees for a stroke and cuddle and laughter with some of her antics. I can't understand why some care homes won't entertain pets for their Residents. Ros advised me on a collie cross (Jack) who was in need of rehoming and he was a valued member of our family for nearly 15 years, and your Volunteers certainly made the right choice for us with Leah. She is an absolute treasure and is loved by all my residents.” New Year Update: “Happy New Year to you all. We had a good Xmas and I hope you did too. The gang all enjoyed Leah opening her presents and helping them to open theirs. Please use the pictures attached on Facebook. I thought the sheer delight on Martin's face when Leah joins him in bed speaks volumes. She is also helping Helena open her presents, keeping an eye on Martin and with the gang at the park. Unfortunately some photos I took of her trying to take the baubles of the tree didn't turn out !! I will keep you updated on her now and again, keep up the good work x.”
Hi Ros, we picked up Barney (originally glitter) from you last Sunday.
He is loving his new home and follows us everywhere around the house, lots of wagging and lots of licking.
The children adore him and he them.
All is well as you can see from below photos - other than he has stolen the cats bed and mouse toy!
Thanks again for looking after him til he found his new family.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for allowing me to adopt my big bundle of joy called Oscar – the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, he has been an absolute delight since picking him up over 3 weeks ago. I have never met such a “happy go lucky” dog and he has fitted in really well with our family, everyone that has met him falls in love with him and he has settled in really well – I am working on his weight with extra walks! Thanks again for your hard work and giving me the opportunity."
