    Story

    Little Betty and Bella have been abandoned outside a church in a village in Corfu, it is believed they were originally found in a rubbish bin.  Gemma,  a  kindly  local  heard  about  them  and  has  been  giving  them  food  and  trying  to  keep  them  safe.   Sadly  other  villagers  have not been so  kind  and  have  been  removing  the  food  hoping  that  the  puppies  would  disappear.  Rescues  on  the  island  have  been  contacted  but  sadly  they  are  all  overflowing  with  puppies  and  adults  in  need  of  homes.

    We  were  alerted  to  their  plight  via  Facebook  and  just  couldnt  turn  away,  so  Hereford  and  Worcester  Animal  Rescue  have  offered  our  help  to  these  two  little  ones.   We  know  that  once  they  reach  our  care  in  the  UK  they  will  be  guaranteed  5*  homes.

    Gemma  has  been  able  to  get  the  puppies  to  safety  today  (15/09/17)  and  has  been  able  to  secure  them  temporary  accommodation  with  CARE  (Corfu  Animal  Rescue)  whilst  all  the  necessary  vaccinations,  microchips  etc  are  carried  out  and  passports  issued,  this  will  take  a  few  weeks.

    Costs of the vacs, chip and passport will cost £90 per puppy, the transport cost to the UK will be approximately £350 each - a lot of money but we feel they are worth it.  Apparently  stray  dogs  on  the  island  run  the  risk  of  being  poisoned  at  the  end  of  the  holiday  season,  we  cant  let  this  happen  to  these  two.

    Please help Betty and Bella to live the life they deserve, every £1.00 donated will make such a difference to their future.

      Exciting news!!!!!, thanks to all you wonderful people, our friends in Corfu and Cuddle Monster (Ludo) for his paypal donation of £50.00 We have raised the necessary funds to bring the puppies over. They arrive next Friday 6th October at Manchester Airport. Initially they will go into a foster home together for assessment and then we can start looking for wonderful homes for them both. This rescue would not have been possible without your support. Huge thanks to Gemma who got them to safety, CARE Rescue and ARK Rescue for making it happen.

      Thank you everyone who has donated so far, we are so very grateful to you, we are well on the way to having the funds to cover the cost of bringing these little ones to the UK. The puppies have now started on their vaccination courses and will be able to travel from around the middle of October. We have decided to send them by plane rather than the overland trip, which takes 3 days, as we feel this will be far less stressful for them. Its a little more expensive but not a great deal so worth the cost. .
