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.

Weekend fun in Cumbria

On 10th/11th June we had a fun weekend in Cumbria. Braving the wet weather 16 hounds with their owners came to watch a hound trail in the beautiful fells near Keswick. We had a fun show with the Best in Show title going to Paula Ball with Heidi. Thank you to the Keswick area HTA and to Victor Brownlee for judging the show. Thank you also to Bill Huddart for kindly donating a cheque to LTW for £30. On the Sunday a small group with their hounds went for a lovely walk around Buttermere.

We unveiled our new banner at the show. Lakeland Trailhound Welfare (formerly Trailhound Trust) has been homing hounds since 1997 so this year we asked you for your photos to put on a commemorative banner. We went big! The eye catching banner is 3m x 1.2m and we got over 120 hounds on it. We have homed over 1500 hounds since our inception and interest in the breed is ever widening. The banner will be used at various fundraising events. Click on the photo to enlarge.

Vinnie trailhound donates blood to save a life!

Vinnie trailhound came to the rescue of a sick dog who was in desperate need of a blood transfusion. He answered the call of help from his vet Jon Slattery at Best Friends Veterinary Surgery, in Worcester Road, Malvern Link.

Mr Slattery had a very ill patient in dire need of a blood transfusion to save her life and called upon Worcestershire Animal Rescue Shelter to ask for help. He knew Vinnie was in excellent health and fulfilled donor criteria to be able to urgently donate blood to help his fellow dog.

Vinnie got an extra treat and has now been happily rehomed.  FULL STORY
