    Story

    Hi everybody!

    2017 will be the third time I run the Run Reigate Half Marathon, but this year I would really like to help Pointer Rescue Serbia, so please sponsor me!!

    POINTER Rescue Serbia's dogs are rescued from all kinds of situations in the Balkans with the sole aim of finding them suitable homes in the UK.

    Pointers are Hunt, Point and Retrieve dogs (HPR), their natural instinct is to find, flush and hunt game and small mammals. In Serbia, that instinct is used but not necessarily trained. If you have ever trained a Pointer, you will know that it takes hours of work, praise, repetition, trust and a lot of care. Unfortunately, these dogs are often not given that training, so, on the slightest distraction, lack of recall, or when they are simply distracted by other things from their purpose to hunt, they are often discarded. Many are left to starve, or are found by dog catchers wandering the streets and are then taken to 'Kill Shelters' to be destroyed.

    At POINTER Rescue Serbia we try to help as many of these dogs as we can. They are often found starving, unwanted, injured and in pain.

    During the entire process we make sure that all the appropriate legal procedures are followed to enable the dogs to travel to the UK safely. Once they arrive in the UK they must stay at a DEFRA registered kennels for 48 hours, after which time they are ready to meet their new owner or fosterer.

    You can find their website here: www.pointerrescueserbia.com

    Thank you so much for helping me in this cause!

    I jog to keep myself healthy and sane 🙂 My running partner is Sparky, a 4y.o. Lab/staffie cross who's full of beans! This year I'll be running my third half marathon and in the future I'd love to enter a marathon. Thanks for reading me!
