Helping a less fortunate dog.
At Fiveway Apartments we have two dog welcoming apartments . We recognise not all dogs are lucky enough to be taken on holiday with their owners . We are really excited to announce we are supporting Animals in Distress, a South Devon charity. Animals in Distress has been finding new , forever homes for tens of thousands of homeless dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs from across South Devon since 1981. They care for up to 25 dogs at any one time with an average waiting list of 20 in need of their help. A dog stays on average for 3 months. They have a very high success rate in rehoming dogs. It is great to be helping them to realise their plans to build a new kennel This will allow them to home and rehome 30% more dogs.
Many of the dogs that go to Animals in Distress have health and behavioural problems. They haven’t had the best start in life or have received the best care so can be nervous or scared. The new kennels with help to minimise the stress which will enable the dogs to settle quickly and recover while they find homes for them.
How we are helping.
When your dog stays with you we make a small charge to you , our guest ,, to cover our additional cleaning costs. We will be passing on some of that charge to Animals in Distress.
This will help them to take a few steps closer to their goal of the new kennels and being able to help even more dogs.
