Guess what Volunteers do in the evenings?
Email sent to admin from owner…
I just want to say how happy I am with the support I received last night and today from two of your volunteers, Nicky McCarthy and Karen Harding ( from South East)… I got home from work last night to find my dog had got out and been missing for up to seven hours. After searching locally I was unsure what to do next – she is a black dog who is invisible in the dark and runs out in front of cars, so I was very worried. I posted in local Facebook groups here in Newbury (Berks) and one lady suggested I register on your website. I did, and within minutes Nicky had contacted me and offered to help. Another few minutes later she had produced posters and followed up leads, which led to Pixie being found by the end of the night; she and Karen continued to use their special contact information to reunite us with Pixie, which I would not have been able to do on my own. We rescued Pixie as a puppy five years ago, so she had grown up with my girls and so I consider her my third child(!) – it was very stressful not knowing where she was and if she was ok, without letting my girls know I was worried (they lost their dad not too long ago and I did not want them to go through another loss) – Nicky and Karen continued to support me through my worry and anxiety on top of the practical help. Their help ultimately resulted in my family being reunited with Pixie today, and I cannot express my gratitude enough! It is amazing work that you all do and you should be very proud of what you achieve, every day, for complete strangers in distress. I have made a donation to your organisation as a small way of saying thank you but really I just wanted to give Nicky and Karen some recognition for their hard work on our behalf.
Wishing you all a very merry Christmas,
Kristen Price and Pixie
