A message from our Chairman

A message from our Chairman

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, to think of others and consider what we can do to support one another.

As what we think of as ‘ourself’ is just a mass of synapses, electrical cables with multiple junctions these neurotransmitter chemicals are responsible for all our emotions and in particular the emotion we term love.
