Dog Presentation – next 7th March 2020

On the first Saturday of each month we hold our Dog Presentation, starting at 10am at West Parley Memorial Hall, BH22 8SQ. The dogs in our care are brought along by their Foster parents so that prospective adopters can see them and learn a little more about their lives so far. The presentation is followed by time to view the dogs on the field behind the hall and then the Induction Meeting at 11am which all prospective Adopters are required to attend. We  advise you to arrive by 9.45am as car parking is at a premium. We start promptly and ask you to be punctual as latecomers disrupt the presentation. We look forward to seeing you and volunteers will be on hand to answer your questions. Please ensure that you have suitable footwear for the field.…read more

Charity Partner – Intergage

This year we have been adopted by Intergage as their Charity partner.  On Thursday 12th October Ginny, Myra and Ross were invited to their offices, as they had a surprise for us.  They are updating our website for us and after a review of the progress, the whole workforce came in to listen to a short talk about the history of Waggy Tails.  We were then presented with a cheque for £863.20 – a magnificent sum which will be put to good use to benefit the dogs.  Ross behaved impeccably, apart from sticking his head in the waste paper bin when we arrived and taking out the contents very gently.  Our thanks go to everyone who is working so hard to help raise money.
