Excel London 20-21 November 2021
Crufts will be returning on 15-18 July 2021 at the NEC Birmingham.
The key activity of the charity to place dogs into loving homes must be suspended during the current crisis to protect our volunteers.
However we can still provide advice and support via telephone and email and through our Twitter,Instagram and Facebook pages.
In an emergency situation please contact your regional coordinator and we will endeavour to help in any way we possibly can.
It is possible as the crisis deepens that animal welfare may become a cause for concern and rest assured we will continue to do whatever we can to help.
As I have said often before I consider the charity to be a family of like-minded people, Labrador people and during these testing times we all need to be more Labrador and think of others and what we can do to support one another.

This year the British Legion will visit us at our virtual cub scout meeting on Zoom which although it has enabled us to continue in some form is not the same as meeting face to face. The children have struggled with the loss of contact with friends and relatives particularly grandparents and they in turn have struggled without hugs and cuddles from their grandchildren. I was waiting to meet a friend for an Autumn walk at Wisley Gardens recently and it was like watching the opening scenes from the film ‘Love Actually’ but with friends meeting and exchanging awkward air kisses and gestures of embrace rather than touching until a toddler noticed his Grandma and Grandpa walking over and rushed for a big hug.
Many of us will know of someone who has been lost to this wretched virus (more…)
