Founder of Three Counties Dog Rescue in Bourne, Gyll Mauchline, is positive about the future
We have enjoyed some lovely weather in the last couple of weeks and it makes everyone feel better, writes Gyll Mauchline of the Three Counties Dog Rescue in Bourne.
At the kennels we now have four herons nesting in the trees at the end of our site and several ducks have taken up residence on the pond. The hive of bees has been active and we look forward to their honey in due course.
Rehoming has resumed at last and we have been able to see people and bring out dogs for them to meet in our large open marquee. Bookings to board dogs have also started to come in as holidays are arranged. Don’t forget we can accommodate your cats as well.
When the original lockdown was declared we lost a number of volunteers at the kennels and this put our remaining helpers under increased strain. We have now met with three new potential volunteers who we hope will be able to help us out in the future. Anyone who is not afraid of hard work getting the food ready, feeding and clearing up afterwards is welcome to contact us about volunteering. There is always the prospect of some fun socialising the dogs as well.
The shop in North Street, Bourne reopened with a bumper first day and has been well supported since. A great number of donations of saleable items have accumulated over the months we have been closed so there is a regular flow of new items for sale. We are happy to take on suitable volunteers to help in the shop. If you are interested call in the shop and ask to talk to Steph, the shop
Personally I have had my second covid vaccination and the arrangements at the Peterborough City Care Centre had dramatically improved since the first visit taking only 15 minutes this time.
So things are picking up and we are hopeful that some more of our plans for the future to support Three Counties can now come to fruition.
