  1. Before 1 or after 6 Andrina
  2. Can anyone pick up a wee lurcher for us on Sunday from Gorebridge and bring her to Dunfermline please
  3. Thanks so much Maureen, I was chuffed to bits when Suz told me the good news, Peachy is a lucky girl to have found you
  4. I just thought I'd post this up on the off chance that anyone was going to Oban over that weekend, its not for SGS but for a wee disabled dog who is trying to find her way to Mull, so she needs to get to the Oban Ferry terminal, the problem is its a transport that is bringing her to Hamilton services and Jean can't pin them down for a time, all fuel will be paid, Jean says she'll buy dinner as well if anyone is going up that way on the 24th June or fancies a wee scenic run, let me know and I'll put you in touch with Jean.
  5. We just had a bit of a mad weekend, a couple of things happened that highlighted to us that we need to keep our volunteers safe, one thing was one of our volunteers turning up in a pretty run down area to collect a dog and the person not being there, it meant she had to hang around in that area to see if we could find the person, during that time she was alone and vulnerable, so in future if we have any concerns at all we will ask for two volunteers or for the person giving up the dog to bring the dog to a place of our choosing. The other thing that happened was one of our volunteers was assaulted doing a meet up between dogs, this was just the result of a crazy person and really couldn't have been foreseen, there was also one of our fosters and two of our adopters there, it was very traumatic for everyone involved, thankfully everyone is okay but it again highlighted to us that we are sometimes vulnerable, so the team will do a quick risk assessment for any activities our team and volunteers are going to do. We are also thinking of how to protect people doing home checks, I think it will be a case of asking if two folk can do it or asking folk to drop a message to us to say they are going and again when they come out, generally we weed out the crazy folk at the initial call but that can't be guaranteed, happy to take suggestions on board on how best to do this. SGS couldn't exist without our amazing team of volunteers so its paramount that we keep you all safe, thanks for all you do everyone
  6. All sorted thank to the wonderful Jaclyn 👍
  7. I'll need to clear out my messages again, sorry! Either next Saturday or Sunday would be best! I'll pm you tomorrow xx
  8. We have a very special boy who is scared of everything 😪 He is currently in kennels, he is doing okay and coming round a wee bit, but he really needs to get into foster to bring him on more and show him how good life can be. We have a foster home in Perthshire so we just need to get him there, we can't really have a relay to get him up as that would totally freak him out and shut him down even more so we are looking for a kind individual who will pick him up one Sunday morning in Newcastle and bring him all the way to Perthshire or if that's just a bit too far, then if he could get to Dunfermline then that would be ideal. All fuel costs will be paid. PM me if you can help

  12. So happy for this lovely wee girl, she really deserves this Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible
  13. I had a dog who used to get that running through dunes as the blades on the leaves can be quite strong and sharp
  14. Has he been running through long grass?
