CHARITY: Helping many dogs in need

A big thank-you to Mark, of Glendale Motors, Ashington, and Matthew, from Signs Express in Cramlington, who have helped get Alexa’s Dog Rescue charity on the road with its first van.

Both went out of their way to assist the charity that has re-homed dogs throughout the region over several years.

These are dogs that have been brought in by the dog wardens, or brought in by their owners who no longer want them, or are unable to care for them.

The need for a van became more pressing after the charity, with the aid of a mortgage provided by Northumberland County Council, purchased kennels just north of Alnwick to accommodate the growing needs of abandoned dogs.

Once again, thanks to all who have helped, particularly those in Morpeth who make cash donations during our regular collection days when Pets at Home allows us space on its premises.

Also, thanks to Morrisons, which recently allowed us an in-store collection that was very successful.

Without your help, none of our work would be possible.
