What a year it has been, who would have thought back in January 2020 that a terrible virus was imminent and our lives would be changed completely.
The impact of this has of course effected daily life at Dunrunnin kennels, in lockdown, not in lockdown, in Tier 2, no now you are in Tier 4, you can re-home dogs, no you can’t rehome dogs. Sadly at the moment we ‘can’t re-home’.
But the kennels haven’t been idle, back in the late spring/early summer, the mammoth job of painting the fencing began, those fence panels seemed endless!
Kennel doors painted, all external walls were painted white with a fresh blue trim.
David Todd did an outstanding job ‘dog proofing’ the kennels.
Wall re-plastered, obsolete wiring removed and a lovely painting by Ian Barclay was put up in the indoor kennel area,
While all this was going on our valuable core group of dog walkers made sure the hounds got exercised each day.
The Christmas Fundraiser was different this year as it was done online, well done to all involved for all your hard work, good news is that it raised a fantastic sum, bad news was there was no getting together, which was a shame as there is such a wonderful community at Dunrunnin, fingers crossed that this year we will be able to.
Dunrunnin Hounds attained its own charity status which means in time, is a work in progress, that it can be registered on Amazon Smile so any purchase made by you will benefit the kennels directly. Also Gift Aid now can be applied to any donations from your good selves
There will be a new web site…again a work in progress, with options to view our lovely hounds that need homes, purchase merchandise, view our Amazon wish list and make donations.
We thank each and every one of you for supporting Dunrunnin Hounds.
