Thank you to everyone who sent us Christmas Presents this year. We all got to open them but were not allowed to eat all the contents in one go!! We are still enjoying our treats and new toys. Here are some pictures of our presents and some of us tucking in!
We still have lots more to open, but we all had a stocking stuffed with our favourite treats and a box on Christmas Day.…read more

Dog Presentation – next 1st February 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
Bridge Evening with American Supper
Last Saturday John Colley organised An Evening of Bridge with American Supper which raised £401.
In addition Mary Brown gave a generous donation
All expenses were donated so the whole sum was passed to Waggy Tails
Stewarts Garden Centres
Stewarts Garden Centres at Broomhill and Christchurch have just started selling a range of Cat and Dog accessories and treats by Zoon. They presented a large dog bed, filled with assorted toys and treats to Ginny and Roz with Fletcher and Louis at their Christchurch store ahead of the launch. We were then invited along to the store for their Dine and Demo evening to help launch the new in store area.
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.
