I get a lot of post, but every now and again I get a letter that stops me in my tracks. Do you fancy leaving the rat race behind to go and help Anne save dogs' lives?
"I run a small rehoming centre in a beautiful part of Wales, about a mile from the sea in a quiet position on the edge of a village. I usually rehome about two dogs from Death Row every week. The kennels only occupies about three hours of every day, often less - but I enjoy spending time with "my" dogs - and training them where necessary.
"I have been diagnosed with terminal cancer, probably having between six to 12 months to live, and I desperately want my work saving innocent lives (often only super lost dogs) to continue.
"I can offer an excellent caravan as accommodation - soon to be upgraded to a cabin or chalet. And possibly free grazing or stabling for one horse/pony to someone experienced with all kinds of dogs, who believes in discipline but also love. They would need to be a car driver and computer literate.
"There are dog grooming facilities and room for agility training - with a large exercise area on site.
"The only financial offer would be to retain housing benefit, plus the use of a decent car. But there are plenty of other opportunities for other work. Dog walking other people's dogs, bar work, domestic cleaning, gardening, lawn cutting etc."
I asked Anne for some more background. The sanctuary is in a small Welsh village. There's about 500 people, a delicatessen, two pubs, greengrocer, newsagent, hairdresser, small tool repair shop and a choir.
"My place is five minutes walk from the town centre and is very quiet. Badgers pass by it and it is full of birds and wildlife. A paradise for anyone seeking peace and calm rather than the rat race. It is two miles from the beach."
Please pass this appeal on. Let's try to find the right person to help Anne continue her excellent work. Email me for more details or to be put in touch with Anne. Please cross post - we need to find someone!
