Four rescued dogs are homed following Observer appeal

The smiles of four special dogs have been brightened now that they have be rehomed after Mutts in Distress made an appeal to find a new home.

The quartet of loving dogs was previously rescued by the Mutts in Distress dog rescue and animal shelter and when members of the public discovered that the dogs were in need of a loving home following a tough start in life, they took on the role of pet owner.

The dog rescue and animal shelter is based in the Herts/Essex area and its mission is to find a home for dogs that might otherwise face the prospect of being destroyed. A plea for help seemed to be the only option after the dogs, which had been recovered from local pounds, were on the brink of returning to the streets. This situation arose after Pat Clark, who founded a sanctuary called Little Hallingbury in the New Barn Lane area, noticed that there was a lack of space in the Normandale Kennels.

In a bid to give these dogs somewhere warm and safe to live, Clark took action and contacted the Observer to share the story. After the story was read by thousands of people, four of the rescued dogs were saved.

Despite the fact that this story has a happy ending, more dogs need fostering or adopting at Mutts in Distress. Those interested can call (01279) 656633 to find out how they can help, or alternatively visit the website.
