Mayflower Animal Sanctuary

by | 16 April 2018 | Local Charity, Pets

Mayflower Animal Sanctuary’s race night at Misson Community Hall was a fantastic night, so if you didn’t manage to get there you missed a treat. This venue really lends itself to this kind of event. Big thank you to Liz and Kelvin for organising the event and everyone else that helped make it a special evening. The final total was £1,538, which was a great achievement.

Marks and Spencer will be visiting the Sanctuary at some point to carry out another charity day and help with lots of jobs that the volunteers never seem to have time to do. Volunteers will be outside the Wheatley Hall Road store every weekend in March with some of the sanctuary’s resident dogs, weather permitting. It has been really super getting to know the wonderful staff and having their support. A huge thank you for all you have done for the sanctuary over the last two years, you have all been stars.

The sanctuary’s next sponsored dog walk in Bawtry Forest on 13th May promises to be a fantastic morning to walk with your beloved pet and raise money too. Mayflower will be selling cakes and hot drinks after your walk to keep those energy levels up. It’s great to see all the dogs interacting and it’s super to see them all with their new owners. Please come and support the sanctuary.

Ball tickets are going fantastically well; there are about three tables of eight or 10 left so call Mags on 07969 203206 or Janice on 07590 455340 if you would like tickets, it is at the Crown Hotel on Friday 18th May and includes a three course meal with drink on arrival, disco and an auction with amazing prizes. Tickets cost £45.00 and it promises to be a fantastic evening; so gents, get those dinner jackets out and ladies cocktail/evening wear out, tiara optional.
Mayflower is desperate for help with collections outside Pets at Home in Doncaster, so if you have a little time and would like to help please call.

Now, on a serious note. The sanctuary has a lovely little dog with some rather serious issues. At first, it was thought she was self-harming however, after further investigations, now, the vets don’t think this is the case. She is spinning her body to try and get to her tail (which she doesn’t have). She needs a special foster carer to live with in a home whilst she is still undergoing investigation. She is visiting the Lincoln University behaviourist to try and establish her problem; however it would be lovely for someone to take her home whilst this is ongoing. She is a lovely girl and loves everyone. If you feel you are able to help, please leave a message on the sanctuary’s answer phone on 01302 711330 and someone will call you back. Many thanks

Please come along to check out the sanctuary’s shop in reception, have coffee or just look around. If you are looking for that special pet, all of the kennel assistants will be able to discuss which dog or cat will fit in with your family.
