2 Days to go!

The beasts are coming and the count down is nearly done…

Today we bring to you the letter W!

Only 2 days to go, we’d like to introduce to you Wolfwood we are fundraising for them and Morecambe Bay Food Bank too!

Wolfwood is a small, busy independent charity and has been in existence since early 2007.

Working in partnership with Lancaster City Council they take stray dogs via the Dog Wardens and unwanted dogs from other local situations, finding them new loving homes. They give medical treatment where needed, love, exercise and training in the belief the dogs will be adopted, loved and given a second chance. The centre is frequently overfull. We rely on public donations and fundraising – our vet bill alone is significant.

The wildlife rescue work covers a wide area receiving casualties from local vets, RSPCA Officers and the public, as well as being on call to retrieve casualties – it does not generate any income, but that does not prevent casualties being given the best treatment and care.

They have ponies and horses in permanent sanctuary and often have ones for adoption as companions.

The charity was set up and is managed by Stephen Wakelin who is dedicated and inspirational; his staff and volunteers hold him in high esteem. During the quieter months October – April he is available to speak at community groups and share his passion for the work.
