KGR News

Well as always it’s been a busy week in the rescue world. We thought we would share with you what has been going on.
We are going to be updating our online shop with new products for your dog. Not only new coats and toys but some new products to help with training, first aid, enrichment and general health. Plus some cosy vet beds. Our volunteers visited a trade show so we will let you know when things become available. All profits from the shop go directly into helping find homes for our dogs, including vet trips and kennel bills plus food for our foster dogs so any support is gratefully received.

The KGR van needed a new windscreen so Neil and Bernard went along for the ride and were impeccably well behaved, so great advertisement for these wonderful dogs. They also visited Chartam Wyevale garden centre and were admired by many people.

Ross and Toastie, went to West Wood at Lyminge Forest for a wet and chilly walk (where are you Spring? ) Matty, Bob, and Bernard were the ‘boys about town’ in Hythe. Joe, Vic, Boo the Moo and new boy Max got out of kennels and had a trip around Headcorn and refreshments for the volunteers at the very dog friendly Kingsbury Coffee Lounge. All dogs well behaved and nice for Max to start to discover life away from kennels.

Ivy did exceptionally well when she encounter 9 dogs on her walk! Not great when you are on the reactive side however, thanks to the hard work her foster mum has put in she only reacted to 2 of them which incidentally reacted to her first so this just goes to show that with time, effort and preserving with training, results can be achieved. Small steps but going in the right direction.

Noreen visited foster Nan and had a potter around both the front and rear garden before going for a walk with foster Nan, which for Noreen who can be scared of new things is a huge step forward. Her foster mum reports “This shows she will make a wonderful family member.”

Finn, Rick, and Toto left for their forever families. Good luck boys and be happy.

Frank, Freya, Evie and Archie found themselves foster homes which is fabulous for them so another step on the way to new homes. Frank is a new blue boy and 6 years old so we wanted to get him into foster asap as he’s well overdue a home life!

Radi Lurcher has had her CT Scan so we await the results and then will find out how to move forward with her. There is a gofundme page if you would like to donate towards her treatment which will be in the region of £2500. Thank you in advance. Here is the link

New dogs are due to come in after Easter, it never stops, but amongst them will be brother and sister hairy Lurcher puppies who are just a year old and Patch, another Lurcher who is very very friendly and all round wonderful but he’s been overlooked for a year due to the fact people think he is too ugly! He’s had a damaged jaw at some point so has a wonky face. He is 7 and doesn’t pull on the lead so may suit an older couple. More details when they all arrive.

We will be out and about over the Easter weekend so keep an eye on social media to find out where if you want to meet any of our dogs and come and say hello.
