THEY SAY true love knows no age and that’s certainly the case at Birmingham Dog’s Home.
The charity with a base in Catherine De Barnes has just rehomed puppy Iris – a young (ten month old) Jack Russell and pappy Max – a ten year old Springer Spaniel who has been at the waiting for a new home for some time just before Valentine’s Day.
Fi Harrison, head of fundraising at Birmingham Dog’s Home, said: “It’s fantastic to see Iris and Max find their forever homes, especially in these financially challenging times which have seen our numbers swell considerably.”
Birmingham Dogs Home has been at the forefront of animal welfare for the Midlands for over 130 years and is one of the region’s oldest and best loved animal welfare charities.
The charity operates two centres in Birmingham and Wolverhampton.
Birmingham can house 150 dogs, Wolverhampton 100 in comfortable kennel blocks with adjacent facilities, such as its own vets’ clinic, puppy unit and isolation block.
Birmingham Dogs Home only survives through the generosity and support of the general public and with help from volunteers in the local community.
