I have been late for work on several occasions because I have been knocking on doors desperately trying to find the owners of a cat tragically killed by a car and lying by the side of the road.

Did you know 60 dogs a week are stolen in the UK?
With the growing market for selling, breeding and even fighting dogs, pet theft is sadly on the rise.
Launching today until March 21st we’re taking part in the Pet Theft Awareness week. We will be sharing heart-breaking stories and publishing a pack to advise you on ways in which you can prevent your dog being stolen and to help those who have lost their pet.

From 40mph to a couch potato, have you met a long-legged, lovable Lurcher?
If you're wondering, Lurchers are the dogs described as a ‘small greyhound’ and in fact, they’re not a million miles away from the key greyhound features and personality traits.
Lurchers are affectionate, loving dogs with bags of character.
They make fabulous pets, and despite the fact they can run at over 40 mph, they don't require you to spend most of your life out of the house exercising them!
Wobble by name and by nature! Sweet dog Wobble has a birth defect that means she moves uncontrollably when walking, but this doesn’t stop her ‘zest for life’.
Seven-year-old Shih Tzu cross came into the care of our Cornwall centre with her brother Winston and has been entertaining our staff ever since.
Centre manager Louise explains: “Wobble’s condition doesn’t cause her any pain and she’s adapted really well to it.
“She is a friendly, affectionate dog that has such a zest for life it’s infectious.
