It’s official, then. I must be an official fan of The Mayhew Animal Home.
I follow them on Facebook, including Mayhew International, and I can’t wait to know when one of their cats or dogs, particularly one who has been with them a long time, has been reserved.
And, I can see from Facebook, that The Mayhew has lots of fans. I’m not surprised. Considering the size
of their organisation, the work they do for animal welfare, both in this country and abroad, is phenomenal.
Already this year, as well as the massive amount of education, rescue and rehoming, veterinary and welfare
work they have done for animals in this country, they have also given training in animal shelter medicine to
people in Afghanistan and collaborated with organisations in India to spread the word about the importance
of neutering street animals and the prevention of rabies.
If you’re on Facebook and want to become a fan too, go to “The Mayhew Animal Home” and “Mayhew
International” and click “Like”. You will see both sides of life there. The sadness of how some people treat
animals and the happiness when these animals find a new home.
It’s not just humans who are fans of The Mayhew. I’m sure that Maisy is a fan too. Maisy is eighteen months old and has been in the care of The Mayhew for over a year. She is a beautiful American bull dog mix who
is friendly and affectionate with people she knows but can be timid with strangers. Maisy is intelligent and
eager to please. She knows basic commands and travels well in the car.
She has been known to be destructive in the past but she is now crate-trained and can be left alone for a few
hours in her crate without any problems. Maisy’s life is slipping by with no permanent home to call her own.
If you would like to share your life with Maisy, phone The Mayhew on 020 8969 0178. Alternatively, you can
see more details including wonderful videos of her behaving beautifully at www.mayhewanimalhome.org/
dogs You will also see Maisy with her Jubilee party outfit on.
