Animal hospital offers an more paw-some support to Birmingham Dogs Home

Solihull Editorial 23rd Jun, 2024   0

BIRMINGHAM Dogs Home has joined forced with a Solihull vets to help care for the most vulnerable dogs.

Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service has signed an initial one-year partnership with the charity to boost its support to those who need an extra helping paw.

At present the vet offers additional specialist support for complex cases and some out of hours care to the 200 dogs residing at the two rescue centres, including the Catherine-de-Barnes site.

Willows’ hospital director Tom Reilly said: “We have worked closely with Birmingham Dogs Home over the last year and our team has been truly moved by the amazing work this charity does in caring for dogs that have had such difficult lives.

“Many of the dogs they receive as strays have untreated medical conditions and are very poorly.

“We already work closely with the charity’s own veterinary team to provide additional specialist support for complex cases, however, we felt moved to do even more.

“So now our whole team is committed to doing all we can to provide the best medical care possible, to give dogs that have suffered so much already the best chance of a long, healthy life.”

Birmingham Dogs Home helps to rescue, reunite, and re-home all the stray and abandoned dogs across the West Midlands and South Staffordshire Area, caring for around 2,000 dogs each year.

Established in 1892, the charity receives no government funding and solely relies on the generosity of its supporters whilst providing this essential service.

Fi Harrison, head of fundraising and communications at the charity, said: “We are thrilled Willows has shown its commitment to helping us as Platinum Business Patrons.

“As well as providing world-class care for some of our most critically ill dogs, Willows will also be supporting us in lots of other ways to help raise awareness for our cause.

“They are a fantastic team and we are delighted to be working together even more closely.”
