This is why we do it!!
Posted by podencorescue on May 10, 2010
Recently I reported on Ronnie the Podenco looking for a home in the UK. I then reported on his successful adoption after being in foster with Rick and Lesley in the Nottingham area.
There were various people helping with this adoption namely the staff at the Sara rescue centre in Lanzarote, the flight escorts to Germany and a kind volunteer in Germany that helped at the airport. Rick and his friend that drove through the night from the UK to Germany and back on the rescue trip. Lesley and Charlie (Rick’s wife and son) that fostered him in their home and the yard staff that walked and looked after him along with the other foster dogs. Podenco Rescue were also involved with liasing the adoption process and Beryl from Galgo News helped with publicity. And finally his new adopted family.
Many people and a lot of man hours but the following photo, sent to me by Rick showing a very contented Ronnie making himself at home, in front of the Aga, in foster care, shows us why we do it!!
To all volunteers and rescuers ;
Never give up, keep fighting for their rights and make them “smile”.
This photo makes it all so worthwhile …………………….
If you can offer a rescue Podenco a new home in the UK, please contact Rick on firstname.lastname@example.org
