A Dog's Life with Fi Harrison from Birmingham Dogs Home

This week Fi Harrison, Fundraising Manager, from Birmingham Dogs Home joins Anna to chat about their ‘Healing Hearts’ appeal. Its aim to raise £100,000 to help pawly pooches by investing in the own veterinary facility. Currently the Charity’s veterinary costs is over £200,000 annually in addition to the staff and running costs of their two facilities. The long term saving of an in house veterinary clinic will allow for more funds to spend on the rehabilitation of their dogs like Spike a Bulldog puppy with serious health issues and deal with emergency cases expediently as well as day to care care. Birmingham Dogs Home was founded in 1892 and is the key rescue covering nine local authorities in the Midlands. With an in flux of ‘pandemic’ puppies likely to hot our rescues as one fifth of new owners are regretting their lockdown decision to bring a dog into their homes, there’s also been a rise in dogs with chronic health issues from obesity to deep rooted anxieties.
