WARNING: THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASE IN LOCAL DOG THEFTS RECENTLY

Updated July 4, 2020 Categories: news.

The following is an account of what happened to a DAWGdog owner this morning:
“I was walking * towards the rugby field on Hardy crescent and a silver 4×4 bibed it’s horn and I turned to see if I knew who it was, I didn’t so I carried on walking across the field. When I got to the other side of the road the car was there, they wound down the window so I asked if they needed any help, the guy just started asking loads of questions about * and I started to get a bit worried, then he asked me if I wanted to sell “the dog”. I shouted no and started to walk away and they started to reverse the car towards me, so I ran.
There was a man in his 50s with balding head, white fair skinned and a heavy stature, the woman of similar age had dark hair but she was wearing a dark face mask.
The car was like a hilux with a solid shell on the back, silver in colour with 2 names on the back passenger side. Either jonny and jody or Charlie and jody.
I reported to the police when I got back home.”

Fox & cubs update

Updated May 20, 2020 Categories: foxes and fox cubs, news, progress updates.

Here is a photo of the cub in carrier ready to go off for release.

The conjunctivitis now all cleared up .

He was released this evening back to his family .

The greeting he gave the Dog fox was just amazing and a treat to behold.

Sheila has sent photo of the two cubs who have bonded immediately.

This is the cub with prolapsed bowel and the one we could not find family’s home to release back to and will be released eventually together.

This is the cub who had the prolapsed bowel ready to go to Sheila’s to be with the cub she is looking after at her place now his companion has been released.

He is recovering extremely well.

Foxes thank emergency vets at Walton Lodge and Afrivets !

Updated May 17, 2020 Categories: foxes and fox cubs, news, Thank you !!.

 

It has been a Foxy week this last week with three cubs arriving and today an adult Fox with a foreign object in between his toes.
Removed and cleaned up by emergency vets this evening.
Antibiotics given along with painkiller and now safely installed in a large crate so we can monitor he is eating well before release on Tuesday back to where he came from.
Two cubs came in last Sunday one with conjunctivitis and the other with a prolapsed bowel.
Now both doing well and hope to release the one with eye problem back to his family.
The other cub arrived Thursday and in spite of attempts to find the place where her family live we had no success with this.
She will be living with another cub until we can soft release them both late August.
Here is a photo of the adult Fox:

The cubs don’t keep still enough for photos but will try to get a couple.
Thank you to the emergency vets based at Walton Lodge who have been marvellous and also Afrivets who have put up with my endless phone calls to them this week for advice!
