Most people that know me know how much I love animals, and if you read my blog post about my pet portrait shoot at Paw Pounders
a while ago you'll know I have a particular soft spot for dogs. For this reason I volunteered some of my time this week to take some photos of the dogs at CAARS who are currently looking for a home. My hope is that some nice photos of the dogs will help catch the eye of future owners that might want to give a dog a new family.
CAARS (Carers Anonymous Animal Refuge Sanctuary) is a pro-life voluntary refuge sanctuary operated by volunteer members. CAARS aim is to provide a complete rescue and shelter facility for all homeless, distressed, abandoned, or unwanted pets; to treat those pets for any sickness or ailment and to set about finding new homes for them as quickly as possible.
You can find out more about CAARS and the great work they do in finding animals new homes on their website
page. Go take a look, and if you can spare a donation I know the team, and dogs at CAARS would be very appreciative.
I thought I'd share a handful of photos to introduce you to some of the dogs looking for a new home.
Jemima is a West Highland Terrier and is five to seven years old. She adores other dogs, cats and people. As I discovered as we walked her she seems to enjoy trying to make friends with horses too. She's very friendly, and apparently likes to see herself in the mirror.
Dayron is an ex-racing Greyhound who is six years old. I've been told that he can be rather lazy, but after a life of having to race around a track, I don't blame him for wanting to take it easy. He's very placid and enjoys gentle walks. He gets on with other dogs and people, but isn't a fan of cats.
Jessie is an eleven month old Whippet, best suited as an only pet, in a child-free home. Very friendly with adults and full of energy.
Toffee is a six years old Border Collie. She walks well with other dogs and needs a child-free new home.
Nicolas the Beagle is over seven years old. He loves other dogs and is partial to a nice cuddle.
Poppy is a Miniature Poodle over seven years old. She gets on well with other dogs, but is currently a little shy with strangers. She just needs a little time, love, and care before she becomes someones best friend.
Caroline is a Schnozzle (Schnauzer crossed with a Poodle). She's very timid at the moment and will need patience and time from a caring owner. She gets on well with other dogs and cats.
Last but by no means least, is Fifi, a Bichon Frise. She's under five years old and get's on well with other dogs. She is an absolute cutie.
All of CAARS dogs come with vaccinations, are microchipped, and have a first free consultation. They offer 25% off neutering at Companion Care Vets in Cannock
, as well as five weeks' free insurance with Agria Pet Insurance
. If you are able to offer a much-needed new home to a pet, please get in touch with CAARS rescue
