Good Evening …

Sorry haven’t been here for 10 days …My auntie Kate told me last nite that I hadn’t kept everything up to date…. Well we have had a busy time with the Leverets who sadly didn’t make it after 9 days of feeding every 2 hours it sadly wasn’t enough. 😦 The buzzard who was found in a field at Bowhill had a very badly damaged wing that couldn’t be sorted …sorry no much good news.

On a brighter note we have rehome the older dogs 10yrs upwards have gone to retirement homes this week, Sable has been offered a new retirement home once she has had a vet check. The old cats are going on monday and tuesday great news for them.

we have 3 rabbits all female and very friendly looking for homes.

Bye for now shona xxx

Hello everyone….

Hope you are all ok? weather has not been very kind to us today —- 3 jackets later the day is finished.

The Leverets that were found in Eckford on Sunday nite are still with us and everyday is a bonus, they are drinking well when we are feeding them every 2 hours.These wee fellas weren’t just lifted they were watched for 24hrs before anyone went near them as mum may have been close. So please don’t take wildlife out of the wild without checking with some one first as lots of babies will be around at the moment and the next few months. The leverets are in our wildlife hospital and are only handled and have human contact when we feed.

Also we have rehomed Dougal to a lovely lady in Edinburgh and we hope he settles in very well, He has the beach just couple minutes away.

bye for now …shona x

Good Evening …

Hi, Hope u are all well tonite.

We have had an extremely busy day, we got one dog in today — she is a labrador 10yrs old and morbidly obese and hasn’t been exercised or had her diet regulated for a long time…. When you come to hand an animal into any rescue DON’T be shy with the truth as it will come back and prove you haven’t told truth ..as this has happened today the animal doesn’t have to have a sad story to make us want to help you….. The truth is always the best for the animal .

We had a wee tawny owl brought in this week he was tangled up on a barded wire fence,. he survived 3 days but sadly lost his fight to live. We have a foto of him after he’d been to vets — thanks to all who helped him .

Nite nite folks …shona xx 🙂
