Hogs Love Dogs!

If you read our last post you'll know we met the lovely people from Mutts In Distress (a local dog rescue centre - situated in Little Hallingbury near Bishop's Stortford) at the A120 vets open day.

Whist talking they kindly offered to donate a few bags of cat biscuits to the hedgehogs. This evening I'm please to say I've collected enough to allow me to sprinkle the tinned cat food the hogs enjoy with tasty, crunchy cat biscuits for months.

So I would just like to say a huge THANK YOU to Mutts in Distress for supporting our work in this way. Without the help and generosity of people such as this we would never be able to care for the hedgehogs we rescue.

I'd also like to add that if you are ever looking for a new K9 friend please visit the gallery of Mutts looking for new homes by clicking on this link.

P.S. To show you just how much hogs love their cat biscuits here is Millie (kindly sponsored by Elizabeth Happer) enjoying her tea a week of so ago.

June 2012 up-date

It's been a busy month so I wanted to up-date you on a few things that have happened.

Cyclops was given the all clear last week by our vets (A120 Medivet) and last night (14th June) he went to stay with one of our carers for assessment. As long as he shows signs of being a hedgehog again he will be going to a new enclosed garden. We don't encourage people to keep hedgehogs in enclosed gardens (as it can cause stress). However because Cyclops only has vision on one side he is very open to predators and unseen dangers, so he has to go into a closed environment. I'll let you know how he gets on.

On the 10th of this month we attended the A120 Medivet open day. The event was to raise money for Mutts In Distress. This is a charity that is dear to my heart because it is where our dog Tasha came from. They rescue dogs and care for them until they find a new home. They have also started to support our work by donating cat food.

Now you may be wondering why I've included a shot of a row of shiny bikes. Well Mutts In Distress recently gained some new supporters in the form of a bikers group. This group have not only donated food but also money to help cover vet bills. And on the day around a dozen bikers turned up to show their support.

Last but not least I'd like to introduce you to Millie, out latest hog. An adult female she was taken into the A120 Medivets and was found to be very under weight and suffering from a very upset stomach. Although this didn't stop her escaping from her box and making a run for it. Once caught she didn't appear to be too upset because she soon tucked into some tasty biscuits. We'd like to thank Elizabeth Happer for adopting Millie and donating towards the cost of her care.

Donate Without Giving Cash

Do you buy office supplies for your business or home?

Would you like to: 

- Save money? 
- Receive a £10 voucher with your first order? 
- Support our work at no extra cost?   

If yes then please read on...

Recently we signed up as an affiliate seller for The Toner Warehouse. Basically anyone can sign up for FREE using the link below and each time they make a purchase we earn commission on that purchase. The great thing is it doesn't cost the buyer any extra. So a win, win! 

So if you'd like to save money and help us simply: 

  • Follow this link
  • Click on the 'join now' button
  • Complete the form (ensuring 111107 in the last box called 'reference')

Then each time a purchase is made we earn a commission.

I must admit when I signed up I was dubious and believed items would be more expensive than my usual supplier. However I placed an order for a set of printer cartridges and a ream of paper and the cartridges were £7.50 cheaper. So I not only saved myself money but also earned a commission for the hogs. Also because my order was over the minimum I received FREE p and p.  

The Toner Warehouse cover most of the country, so even if someone live hundreds of mile away from us they can still support our work.
