A little stray dog called Rosemary

Tuesday 21 October


A little stray dog called Rosemary, who came into Raystede’s care, having been found as a stray, has given birth to an amazing 11 healthy puppies.

Incredibly nervous and underweight when she first arrived we have given her all the love, warmth and food she has needed to help her give birth without any problems.

We are so glad that all the puppies have made it through the first difficult days. Although Rosemary is very tired, she is also doing well.

The costs of caring for Rosemary and her 11 puppies will be considerable. If you are able to help with just one of the items listed below, it would be a huge help.
