Waggy Tails Rescue Needs Your Help!
An animal rescue charity is appealing for funds as building work on its new animal rescue centre (ARC) in Dorset nears completion.
Waggy Tails Rescue needs cash to help it fit out the dog cabins and clinic area of the ARC at the charity's site.
Visitors to the charity's website can donate online or download a Buy a Brick form that they can print out and complete if they would like to pay by cheque.
Waggy Tails Rescue rehomes dogs within East Dorset and West Hampshire and runs an advice service which deals with pet problems.
