FREE PRESS AND GUARDIAN/JERRY GREEN APPEAL: How you can help more dogs like Tia
Three-year-old poodle cross Tia is the latest happy pooch settling into her new home after being rescued by Jerry Green.
Tia came into the dog rescue’s Algakirk centre from a home that unfortunately did not have enough time for her.
She was was very stressed while in the kennels but thankfully it was not long before she found her forever home.
Her new adopter Sophie Bromley, said: “Tia is absolutely the perfect dog for us. “She is such a bubbly, friendly girl who loves everyone she meets.
“She has settled in well now. One of her favourite places to be is cuddled up on the back of the sofa, as you can see from the photo.
“We feel so lucky to have Tia in our lives and are so happy we found her.”
We are supporting Jerry Green’s appeal to raise £200,000 to refurbish its kennels, which have become tired and out-of-date.
To help, we want to raise £4,000 - with the aid of our readers - to build the first new kennel for the block.
When we visited the centre last year, its manager Jo Hickson, said: “We want to get rid of the long corridors in the kennels and make the kennels themselves bigger.
“They are getting quite sad, tired and echoey, and have chipped tiles.
“The kennels will half in number but double in size.”
