Cissy and Maggie might get me up at 5.30 every morning to go for a run together around the garden but come breakfast time this is a sight to warm my heart and make my very tired face smile.

If you have those nagging feelings about wanting a Greyhound or wonder about adding to your pack. Why not visit Tia rescue and walk a dog.

Dog walking takes place everyday. Starts ay 0830 and the last walk is at 1230 before they have lunch

The efforts of the group of volunteers who go out into the Doncaster area raising public awareness of Tia and it’s work is beginning to pay dividends, with more people and families visiting the Centre, which is great!  We have also received invitations to visit Schools, Residential Homes and Day Centres for The Elderly with some of the kennel dogs – we very much want to honour these requests, but will be unable to do so without the help of more volunteers.
All we are asking for is 2 -3 hours of your time every so often, the more people who get involved the better!  Please e-mail Janice; thesimmonds@yahoo.com if you can help in any way or would like more information.
The team of volunteer fundraisers based in W. Yorkshire also need more help in order to continue their support of Tia – if you want to get involved, please refer to the Events Page on Tia’s website and contact the person responsible for organising the event you can help at.
We appreciate everyone’s life is very busy these days, but we really need your help, please volunteer if you can – the animals at Tia are relying on you!
Thank you

Are those cd’s and DVd’ taking up space and collecting dust. Are you listening to your music streamed or on MP3. If so drop off your old cd ‘s at a Tia rescue charity shop and we can sell them on.

Can’t believe we’ve had Jonjon (aka Pilfred McLongsnout) 7 years, he’s doing great.  His Royal Blindness has just celebrated his 11th birthday.  He’s slowing down a little but he’s still a child of Fagan, thief and Artful Dodger.  Soon to go to a holiday chalet near the beach which he loves, lots of love, treats and cuddles never goes a miss.  His blindness doesn’t stop him at all being a silly sod.

We are cracking on with the new shop in Armthorpe but we need volunteers to help get it set up.

We have a massive amount of stock here at the farm that needs sorting and the Charity shop here at the farm needs setting up again. We just have so much stuff i don’t know where to start. (not complaining)

So if you can help, i need hands on here this weekend and then Chris, at Armthorpe, needs volunteers at the shop all next week. We are aiming to get the new shop in Armthorpe open by Monday 22nd May.

Thanks Deb

And here we have the beautiful Abby. 6 weeks ago she had been taken to the pound with a broken leg.

What a stir she caused. The usual suspects went off on one demanding the pound be closed complaining to the council and everyone else they could think of. They couldn’t bear not knowing where she was.

Strange when they actually run their rescue from a pound…

Anyhow, here she is safe and sound and very, very happy…
