Running for dogs on 19th October 2014

Please support trailie owner, Jane Craven, who once again is raising money for Worcestershire Animals Rescue Shelter and Trailhound Welfare.  She is running at the Bupa Great Birmingham Run 2014 on the 19th October 2014. In October 2013 Jane did a half marathon to raise funds for  WARS and Trailie Welfare. If you click on the link below, it will take you to the Just Giving page. Although it only mentions WARS, Jane has made an arrangement with them that half the money raised will sponsor the next Trailhounds that we send there (as we always make a donation per hound towards the cost of neutering etc). Jane & Richard have 2 trailhounds, Ben and Zak, that give them immense pleasure.

Please support Jane by donation via the Just Giving page. CLICK HERE TO DONATE

We are very pleased to announce that Jane completed her run and raised a total of £161 for Trailhound Welfare and WARS. Well done, and thank you so much for your support.

Thank you to Alan Wills

Alan Wills from Cumbria has been a supporter and made regular donations to Trailhound Welfare for a number of years. His donations have helped us to get many hounds into retirement homes. Alan has enjoys watching trails from vantage points on the fells. However, he has a confession to make –  he has admitted that he has usually walked straight up onto the fells from the nearest bus stop, and not paid his entrance fee to the trail field! Alan hopes that his “debt” of over 20 years to trailing has been covered by his donations to Trailhound Welfare.  He has been very generous and his latest donation of £200 has already been put to very good use with essential vet bills and rehoming costs this weekend.
