Rick Wakeman visited

Our lovely friend and patron Rick Wakeman recently visited our Newport office on the Isle of Wight, where he spent over three hours speaking to and being photographed with some of our supporters and their lovely, rescued dogs.

Friends of the Animals Rick Wakeman

Dogs included: Bella who – prior to coming into our care – had spent several years in temporary homes including a long stint in kennels. She is a lovely quiet dog who just accepts her lot and she was simply never chosen as she is large. Happily, we have found Bella the perfect coastal home, where she is living very happily with another dog of a similar size and a cat. The ages of the dogs who came to meet Rick, ranged from puppies Duke and Duchess who are still only a few months old, to dear Rosie the Spaniel, who is over fourteen years old. For some of the dogs present, Friends of the Animals had been their very last chance of life. When Spirit the Retriever came into the Charity’s care, she was so ill, we didn’t know if she would survive. The poor dog had Pyometra, which is a fatal condition if left untreated. It only occurs in un-spayed animals, so the clear message here is GET YOUR BITCH SPAYED.

Contact us on 01983-522-511 if you need help with the cost and – provided you can reach one of the thirty plus Vets the Charity uses – we will help you.

We are pleased, and very honoured to be able to announce that with the support of RICK WAKEMAN, the superb Opera Singer ALFIE BOE has kindly agreed to become a Patron of the Charity. Support of this calibre directly translates into us being able to help more animals and people, so WELCOME ALFIE.
