Yorkshire Rose Dog Rescue - ways to help!

Posted by Jill on February 1, 2017 at 11:00 AM Comments comments (0)
Yorkshire Rose Dog Rescue would love to hear from you if you wish to volunteer. The more volunteers we have the more dogs we can care for and see on their way to a new forever home. We would be interested in hearing from anyone who can help in any of the following ways: Fosterers Our fosterers are the cornerstone of our success, this is not an easy role to play. It is easy to become attached to your charges, and giving them up can be emotionally draining. Many dogs will have issues you will need to help them overcome with lots of love, time, and patience. That said, fostering for homeless dogs can be one of the most rewarding aspects of helping a dog rescue organisation. The knowledge that a warm safe place to sleep, some cuddles, food and a bowl of water could have saved that dogs life is one of the best you can imagine. Transporting Don't worry if you are unable to foster, there is so much more people can do to help. We will always need help with transporting dogs, either to collect, deliver, or do vet runs. Home Checking Home checks are crucially important, we will show you how, and give guidance on the right questions to ask and things to look out for. We try to make sure the foster families are involved in the re-homing decisions, but this can only be after a safe, secure, loving home has been found. The next step is matching the right dog to the right home. Donations and Sponsoring Occasionally we have a situation where a dog has come into our care that requires treatment. In some case this treatment can be expensive. This can be medical treatment, or in other cases, like Dinah, we find a dog in need of behavioural treatment as a result of their treatment or experiences in life before coming to us. If you would like to help sponsor a dog like this we would love to hear from you, anything you can give no matter how large or small will help, if you would like to make a single donation, or make regular donations, either for a specific dog or just to generally help the rescue, anything would be gratefully received.

Christmas Party Review

Posted by Jill on December 20, 2016 at 8:45 AM Comments comments (0)

Thanks you to all those members and dogs who attended our annual Christmas party last night and I hoped you all enjoyed yourselves.

Team Fairies were the winners of the games, beating theTurkeys by a resounding 92 points to 47!!

For those that couldn't attend, games played were

Egg and Spoon race (dog's lead and spoon in the same hand!)

Retrieve the sausage (A big well done to Fairies who had 3 dogs bringing the sausage back uneaten)

Retrieve the Christmas toys ( Molly did well retrieving the top scoring toy for 15 points to keep the Turkey's in the running at that point, but unfortunately as usual the collies amongst us went for the tennis ball and a minus 2 points for their teams!!)

Fastest recall (Exceptional recalls from both Dexter and Chester who shot across the room at full pace, straight to their owners)

Fastest sit & fastest down (both teams were neck and neck with this one)

Fatest heel (Ash left the competition standing with her continental heel - well done Fairies again!)

Musical chairs (Yet another win for the Fairies)

Thank you also to the members who helped us tidy and clean up the hall after the party and who do so every week after training classes - its really appreciated.
