Rehomed from our HULA centre last year, Woody is a gorgeous young cat with a lot of love to give. Sadly, he arrived back in our care due to a severe medical condition he has developed, which his owner could not afford to treat. 

Our vets tell us that if Woody had not arrived in our care when he did, his bladder would have burst and he would have died this week.

Dogs are generally social animals, but a lack of doggy manners and etiquette can make interactions between dogs stressful for both dog and owner.
 
We hear all the time how important positive socialisation with other animals is vital for a young pup, and we agree! But a well-mannered pooch will be able to say hello when appropriate and ignore passing dogs when it’s not.
