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.
TV Vet and Campaigner Marc Abraham joined me on A Dog's Life to chat about Lucy's Law, the new legislation banning third party puppy sales. We also discuss the Lockdown boom in puppy love and the unscrupulous breeders that optimised this demand with rocketing prices and animal welfare issues
