Snoopy (4)

Snoopy

Snoopy is 11 years old but you wouldn’t know it. He is is lovely condition. He loves to interact with his humans and being called a “Bonnie boy” which he will also say to you if he’s in the mood, is one of his favourites. He loves to be sung to, You are my sunshine…

Alfie will play with just about anything that he thinks is fun

16/1/21 Alfie is on hold at the moment, no more applications please

Alfie is a golden oldie whose owner died recently. He was clearly very much loved and saw a vet regularly. Alfie has some heart issues and was due an operation on a growth on his foot that was causing some issues. Due to its size it had become ulcerated and the only option was for…

Dude-Lacey

Dude and Lacey

Please note we have a VERY restricted rehoming area currently and can only rehome in very specific cases. Please check https://b-a-r-k.co.uk/things-to-consider-before-adoption/ before applying.

Banjo is a friendly boy

15/1/21 Banjo – we are not taking any more applications on Banjo

Banjo is around 4 years old. Although he originally came in as stray because he was microchipped we were able to contact the owners. Banjo had become a bit of a wanderer and the owners decided not to take him back. He is a nice boy, a bit of a softy who loves to be…

Suzie is never happier than when she is lounging

Suzie #2

Suzie came in as a stray apparently having recently had kittens. It transpire, however, that Suzie is already spayed. We think she is probably 3 – 5 years old. Suzie behaviour has improved since coming in but she still likes to make sure she keeps your ankles in check when the mood takes her. Otherwise…

Suzie 2

Susie #1

Susie is a cat we describe as having an interesting character. I supposed at 15 she probably has a right to want things her own way. She could not go with other animals and would need a very understanding owner who would give her loads of time to settle and it may well be Susie…

Theo loves to sleep but also loves to be outside exploring.

15/1/21 Theo – we are not taking any more applications on Theo

Theo or Theobald to give him his Sunday name, originally came in as a stray but has remained unclaimed. We think he is between 4 an 7 years old. He is a very loving lad who is always ready for a fuss. Theo has recently been neutered so we are now ready to look for…

Ollie will accept gentle strokes

09/01/21 Ollie is reserved and will be of to his new home with some bunny friends soon

Ollie is just 7 months old and said to be a Mini Lop although isn’t particularly small. He is due to be neutered towards the end of January and will then be ready to go to a new home. Ollie had turned a bit grumpy recently which is why he came in. Hormones will play…

Poppy and Sybil

Poppy and Sybil are two 16 month old female rats. It’s fair to say that they could be described as little and large. They will need their confidence built but are a nosey inquisitive pair and clearly food will certainly be the way to one of their hearts. Rats need a good sized, multi level…

Peep (Small)

Peep

Peep is a Cockatiel probably around 8 years old though this is very much a guess. He has a wonderful personality and knows exactly what he likes and isn’t prepared to compromise. We are looking for a very specific home for Peep so please only apply if you can fit the criteria. Please also see…

Oddie

Oddie

Please note we are working within government restrictions placed on us. We can not currently consider rehoming to Scotland. Any enquiries must be be within 7 miles of the kennels in England. It is as annoying to us as it is you. Oddie is just a youngster having been born in February 2020. He appears…

Bell

19/1/21 Snowbell and Bella will be off to their new home shortly.

Snowbell and Bella are two sisters at just 1 year old. They came in back in July both pregnant. Snowbell went on to have two kittens followed 3 weeks later by Bella who had 3 kittens. They have now recovered from being spayed and had a home lined up but unfortunately the elderly resident dog…

Biscuit has a happy face, but don't be fooled

Biscuit

Biscuit is a medium sized cross who is under two. Please note he is not a border terrier type and has staffie in him. When he came in it is fair to say he was a grumpy boy when he came in he did have a reasonable excuse as his skin was very sore. Once…

Home handsome is he?

Flare

Please consider Flare’s needs carefully before applying to rehoming him. He is not “just” a pet, he needs a lot of effort, time and understanding. Flare is just a year old and has had a really bad start to life being moved from one home to another (at least 4) which has likely included a…

Zeus (1)

Zeus

Zeus is a lovely boy who will be 8 in January. He suffers from separation anxiety but with time and patience this can become more manageable. He has some good basics, loves a bottom scratch and is healthy. He does suffer from an eye issue which requires regular eye drops. B.A.R.K. will, if necessary, continue…

Bruce (3)

Bruce

Please note we are working within government restrictions placed on us. We can not currently consider rehoming to Scotland. Any enquiries must be be within 7 miles of the kennels in England. It is as annoying to us as it is you. Sadly Bruce had come back into us. He did so well in his…

Enzo is back but at least he is happy.

Enzo

Sadly Enzo is back with us Enzo is just over three and a half and has had a really rough start to life. You may recall he came in came in from what we believe was the same house as Tiggy. He was thin and his skin was in terrible condition. (see picture at the…

It is lovely to see Foggy so relaxed

Foggy

Foggy has come on so well. Someone lives locally and is prepared to spend a bit of time getting to know Foggy, has a secure garden, quiet home and prepared to spend time gaining Foggy’s trust what a lovely lad you’ll have. Foggy has some issues with other dogs although we have found it manageable…

Tiggy – A new beginning

Wednesday 15th January: Weight 20.1 Kilos And 42 days after we first saw our beautiful Tiggy she left without a backward glance. We all know she’s come a long way. She is now retiring from public life to enjoy what she deserves, the rest of her life. So many were touched by Tiggy, her strength,…

CatStray

When is a stray cat not a stray cat?

Cats are naturally wanderers as far as 10 miles, especially if unneutered.  Cats, when they visit other houses, are always ‘starving’ and are never fussy eaters (I once knew a cat that would only eat turkey at home but went and raided the neighbours cat food bowl every day). So what can you do if…

Archie loved his playtime

Day 648 and Christmas came early

I think I speak for all the staff and volunteers at the kennels that if we had one wish for Christmas, much as we love him, it would be for Archie to not spend it with us at kennels but with a new family.  Well yesterday 648 days after coming into kennels our Archie finally…

Stanley is going to be a great cat

Sometimes all that is needed is a little bit of tlc

Stanley has clearly been living rough for sometime, although he is a little bit fuffy as you can see in the video below if a dreamie is involved he’s happy to have a bit of a stroke.  It looks like our Stanley will be looking for a cosy indoor home once he is fully recovered…

Peter and Simon are very scared at the moment, but we hope to soon win them round

And still they keep coming in

There appears to be a never ending stream of kittens being found.  This morning two more came in from the Duns area.  Very pretty with sharp claws and teeth.  We’re sure they’ll come round as soon as they realise we’re a source of food.  These two are probably around the 12 weeks mark so still…

Pet Plan

Another busy Saturday

We’ve another busy Saturday ahead with 14 animals off to their new homes.  Fortunately a lot of them are cats as we have a huge waiting list of cats to come in. We often get asked if we are sad when the animals leave us.  That’s a difficult question, it is after all what we’re…

Lucille learning to be a great surrogate mum

The wonder of mother nature

Yesterday we took in three kittens about 3 or 4 weeks old that were found by the road side.  Apparently healthy, and certainly with healthy appetites. Lucille had just finished feeding her 5 so we though we’d see if she would help us out.  She wasn’t a natural mother when her kittens were born, she…

? the first of many perhaps ?

Plant Sale preparations

Our plant sale is always very popular and Karen has been planting seeds since before the last one.  Her long suffering husband has decided the only way forward is a poly tunnel as they have no more window sills, or space for that matter in their house and garden.  So today a massive 25 x…

Vet visit day – It’s going to be a long one!

So today one of the vets from Galedin will be down pulling their hair out.  We have 15 cat vaccinations, 8 dog vaccinations and an additional 6 check ups.  Of course to help matters nearly all the cats are black or black and white just to complicate matters.  They are all microchipped and it will…

“I could never put my animal into rescue……..”

Rescue animals come in for all sorts of reasons, the minority is your stereotypical dumped, abandoned, unwanted.  For many bringing animals in to us it is a heart wrenching decision which causes upset past the initial bringing in.    Many owners have brought animals in because for one reason or another finance, or lack of…

Catching up

Catching up after the open day this last weekend is taking it’s time.  With the applications for the puppies to go through (and there’s a lot of them), home checks for lots of the dogs, microchipping of all the kittens so we know who is who and having a full kennels, cattery, Hop Inn and…

Open Day

We had our open day on Saturday (28th October). To say it was busy was an understatement. Lots of people in looking at our animals. Of course the kittens and puppies attracted the most visitors. Poor Archie once again getting overlooked for the younger or prettier dogs. (I know beauty is in the eye of…

Vet visit day

We are lucky to have our vets, Galedin, so close.  It’s vet visit today.  Nothing particularly exciting.  14 vaccinations and check ups plus we’re a bit concerned about one of our rabbits so a check over by the vet will hopefully sort that out.  Fortunately today is not the day for all the kittens to…

Chillie. . . . Chilling

BARK News 11th August 2016

Even though we haven’t chosen the name for the dogs in the kennels at the moment there is a bit of a theme, we have Billy, Chillie and Milly and Charlie, Marley and Charlie.  It can be a bit of a tongue twister, especial as the ‘groups’ tend to be out on their walks together. …
