Health & Safety are of priority and we do not wish to be compromised under any circumstances.

Building Confidence
and Improving Health

Miss Bounce a lovely young shy & timid Bischon girl came into our care whilst her family had to find her a new home as her elderly owner was hospitalised and unable to care for her. In the six weeks this wee girl gained confidence and her health improved too with the assistance of VetCare Grey Lynn.
