Helen and her hounds raised £1025.11!

A HUGE THANK YOU TO LTW supporter Helen Warrington who undertook the gruelling Ullswater Challenge on 21st October, which involved running 24 miles with her fab trailie companions, Ace and Tarn. This was no easy jog – it involved running up and down fells in a variety of weather including driving, horizontal rain and sunshine with rainbows. With YOUR support sponsoring her, Helen raised an amazing £1025.11. 

We would also like to thank Tina Airey and the HTA for collecting £200.11 of the final total on the same day in support of Helen, at the Helton Hound Trails which were held just over the fell from Ullswater.

As of the date of writing this (23/10/2018), Trailhound Welfare has helped 47 trailhounds in 2018. We have privately homed 21 hounds, sent 24 to trusted rehoming centres all over the country and have 2 hounds in long term foster homes. So the support from yourselves and Helen is very much appreciated. Here are a few photos from Helen’s epic run, plus a picture showing just a few of the hounds we have helped this and last year.

Thank you to the BHTA – £325.55 raised for LTW

Many thanks to the Borders Hound Trailing Association and their supporters for their kind donation of  £325.55 raised on the Sandale trails on 7th October 2018. The weather was atrocious with rain and strong winds but that didn’t stop anyone enjoying themselves. Visiting retired hound Ellie met up with old friends then high tailed it back to her snug duvet in the car with her companion Bailey!

THANK YOU for your support for Laddie

Laddie is a lovely 10 year old hound who came into Trailhound Welfare in December 2016, for rehoming. Older hounds can take a bit longer to be adopted and he has been in a foster home while he waits. In July 2017, Laddie had to have his spleen removed as lesions were detected on it. They turned out to be non cancerous and Laddie is fighting fit again. We put out an appeal on Facebook for donations towards his vet bills which were over £800. We were blown away by all the support and raised an amazing £930 in just over a week. The BHTA (Border Hound Trailing Association, which is where Laddie raced for 8 years) raised £260 of the total. We are so grateful to everyone who helped us to cover the costs. If you would like to know more about Laddie, visit our rehoming page.
