Stray rehomed after vet operates free of charge

Ruffles with Head Vet Antony Bada and Vet Kim BarrowA stray puppy that required major orthopaedic surgery has been rehomed.

Haven Veterinary Group waived their fees to treat the stray after the 18 month old dog was picked up by Hull City Council’s Dog Warden in the Orchard Park area. The dog, a Jack Russell type puppy that Haven staff named Ruffles, was taken to Holderness Road surgery by staff at Carr House Rescue Centre, from where she was rehomed.

Of the Femoral Head Excision procedure, Haven Veterinary Group owner and principal vet, Jim Morris said: “We had no alternative to surgery in order to free the dog from pain. We were pleased with the surgery and are delighted that he has a new home and is recovering well.”

Norma Anderson from Carr House Rescue Centre said: “Thanks to the generosity of the team at Haven, Ruffles is doing well. He was rehomed by Sue Grantham who lives in Withernsea and it is hoped that walks on the beach will help his leg become stronger.”

Senior Practice Administrator, Evie Beattie said: “We work closely with Carr House Rescue Centre and we couldn’t let the puppy suffer.”

Staff from Carr House Rescue Centre with HavenA charity campaign by one of Hull’s leading Veterinary Practices has raised over £350 for one of Hull’s longest established dog rescue centres.

Staff at Haven Veterinary Group in Holderness Road and Ketwell Lane in Hedon organised an imaginative series of fund raising events for Carr House Rescue Centre that included a raffle, home-made pet treat goody bags, Guess the Teddy’s Birthday and Festive Pet photo competitions.

Evie Beattie, Senior Practice Administrator at Haven Veterinary Group, masterminded the campaign and was overwhelmed by the level of support that they received: “We’re proud to support Norma Anderson and her team at Carr House who work tirelessly to provide a safe haven, medical care and love for rescue dogs of all ages.  It’s particularly appropriate at this time of year as they experienced an unprecedented number of abandoned Staffordshire Bull Terriers, including one left tied to the centre’s gate overnight, in the week before Christmas.”

East Hull based Carr House Rescue Centre has been caring for rescue dogs for over 20 years and currently has 26 dogs to rehome.  Of Haven’s generosity, Norma Anderson said: “We are very grateful to Evie and the team for this much needed donation.  It costs over £100,000 a year to keep the centre going, so acts of generosity like this are most welcome.”

The winners of the festive pet photos were Miss Pyle in the under 12 months category for Ronnie and Reggie her Yorkshire Terriers and Mrs Shaw in the over 12 months for Martha the Tortoise.  Mrs Whittles won the guess the teddy’s birthday competition and the raffle winners at Hedon were Mrs Creswell, Ms Simpson and Mr Armstrong.

Haven Veterinary Group’s two practices specialise in the treatment and care of small and large animals and its Holderness Road practice is also one of only a few nurse training centres in East Yorkshire.

Hull Vet Group launches Christmas campaign for Carr House Rescue Centre

haven vet group in hull christmas campaign for carr house rescue centreThe team at one of Hull’s leading Veterinary Practices has launched a Christmas charity campaign in aid of one of Hull’s longest established dog rescue centres.

Staff at Haven Veterinary Group in Holderness Road kicked off the campaign for Carr House Rescue Centre with a “guess how many dog treats are in the jar” sweepstake that raised over £400 and was won by Ilona Park of East Hull, who guessed that there were 205 treats in the jar.

Evie Beattie, Senior Practice Administrator, is managing the campaign and is delighted that it got off to such a good start; “We’re proud to support Norma Anderson and her team at Carr House.  They work tirelessly to provide a safe haven, medical care, attention and love for rescue dogs of all ages.

“We have lots of events planned, including a Christmas raffle, home-made pet treat goody bags and Guess the Teddy’s Birthday and Festive Pet photo competitions.  Entries for the photo competition are being invited now in two age brackets – under 12months and over 12 months. Photos and the £1 entry fee can be dropped in at 34 Ketwell Lane, Hedon or 684 Holderness Road, Hull and the winners will receive Haven Gift vouchers and a Festive Hamper.

Evie concluded; “The closing date for the competitions is December 20th so that we can notify the winners and deliver the donations before Christmas. We hope to raise at least £500 for this great charity.”

Staff will also be asking pet owners for donations of food, treats, toys and blankets in the run up to Christmas and practice owner and principal veterinary surgeon Jim Morris has agreed to dress up as Santa to deliver them.
