Members of the Davies team have been sharing their animal rescue stories in aid of Change a Pet’s Life Day. We will be hearing from various team members on how they have changed an animal’s life for the better and how animals have enhanced their lives too. They hope it will help to encourage people to adopt or foster pets from shelters and raise awareness about animals in need.

If you want to get involved there are various ways you can help:

Adoption – by adopting a pet you will be giving them a permanent loving home.

Fostering – when fostering a pet this means you will be providing the first steps for the animal to have a safe loving place to stay. This also means you are freeing up spaces and beds in shelters allowing space for more animals to be rescued.

Volunteering – Volunteering allows you to get involved in a way that suits you best, this could be helping with fundraising or helping at a shelter. Whatever suits you will be a huge help to any shelter.

Donating – Any kind of donation, whether a one-off or regular donation, is a huge help to shelters and rescues.

Sophie Barnes, RVN at Davies, adopted Luna from Dogs Trust four years ago when she was 18 months old.

Luna was born into Dogs Trust as her mum came in pregnant and had a litter of 8 puppies. Unfortunately for Luna, she experienced many homes before finding her forever home with us.

“Luna clearly faced some challenges prior to us adopting her and we have had to do lots of training with her,” said Sophie. “She now lives a very happy life to include snoozing on the sofa after long walks and she particularly enjoys going to the beach. She’s a dog with a big heart and lots of love to give.”

Fun fact: Luna’s original name was Mrs Potato-Head as all of her litter had been named after Toy Story characters!
