Hawick 2

Good Afternoon…( excuse my rant.. Its Easter !!)

I hope some of you Borders People are having a Good Friday …as I am not.

How many strays can fit in Arthurshiel?….  well, currently NONE !. We are at capacity, so any dogs that are found from now on will have to stay at Police Stations as we are FULL.

We will start with HAWICK…. A staffie x found Monday ..the owner called while I was driving on Monday and I txted (after stopping safely) to say there dog was with us and go to the Centre as there were people there to give dog out .. No one appeared.

Next dog is a Staffie male, dark brown… this dog is well looked after and was “found” in Allers Crescent Hawick.

Now moving  to Galashiels……. A Labrador dog was found at the Swimming Pool. This dog has 2 different coloured eyes and again is well looked after ..This dog possibly stays in the Meigle View area of Gala (?) .

We have also a few lost animals …. A Jack Russell and Labrador have gone missing from there Garden nr Berwick. The owners are really upset about there dogs going missing and would like them back ..It looks like they have been taken out of their garden as both gates were still closed.

Ettrick Valley…. a small black cat has gone missing on 24th March , she has a shaved patch on her side and still has stitches in her side as she has just been speyed. Help us get her back home.

NOW we have had a lady up looking for her dogs who have disappeared into thin  air… she is very upset as the not knowing if they are safe is eating her up.

Her dogs are 2 Westies and a Doberman .. even just a telephone call so she can rest and stop looking would be enough.. How would u feel if ur animals disappeared and u couldnt find them ..

Found Galashiels.

Hi, It’s been a very busy two days. We have seen the last photographer and film crew off the premises – might get back to normality. If there is such a thing here.

Orla the Otter is doing ok, she is starting to eat Salmon on her own when I cut it into small pieces. She will devour a piece of salmon if I leave it in her bed, it’s so funny to see this wee thing trying to tackle a piece of salmon on her own. She also loves to cuddle up next to your neck when she’s sleeping – which she does a lot of at the moment.

Asda Galashiels have been very good to us and have donated salmon and trout, we have enough to keep her going for about a week. Many Thanks to them.

I will be back with more on Orla later.

bye Shona 🙂

P.S Forgot does anyone have a child’s travel cot that they no longer need as  Orla will soon need more room to move around. thanks

Otter Rescue


New arrival last nite – about 5/6 weeks old, cute, cuddly and found freezing nearly to death at the roadside.

It’s an otter kit. She was handed in and we are taking care of her in the house with our own dogs and cats.

She is eating very well but it’s extremely messy and time consuming. We are giving her pureed salmon and kitten milk and also small pieces of salmon and trout.

Her teeth are very sharp and she plays like a puppy loves playing with Kevin our semi disabled kitten.

I will keep you all updated on a daily basis.

owl found in a hedgerow


It’s Monday again and the start of another week.

We had a phone call from a member of the public , they had found an owl in a hedgerow.

The owl has an injured wing, so fingers crossed all goes well and eventually he will be released back to the wild.
