I am not a great statistics girlie, but I think there are times when they sum it all up! And this is one such time, an end of year, a celebration of life, and a look ahead at those with whom we are privileged to share our lives.
Remembering our puddings who passed over the bridge this year …
Puddings who were rehomed or are part of our current outreach programme … Mia, Melodie, Norman, Sam, Bella, Scooby, Vanae, Bobby, Memere, Ted, Vicky, Leah, Mozart, Domingo.
And who is with us here at home, as we start the new Twilight year …

You have helped make this happen. Yes you. Mike and I might live here at Twilight home, but whether you are a volunteer – in so many ways, a supporter with funds or goodies, a moral supporter of caring words, a professional who gives us discounts, a fellow rescue colleague, mighty fundraiser alone or in a team, or the very person who hugs us at just the right moment, 2017 has seen 70 Puds lives touched. Thank you … so very very much.
Leeanne and Michael xxxx
