We discovered a little disabled doggy, chained to a cage and unable to use her back legs and knew we had to help. It was decided: Rosie simply had to come and live at Playing with the Wind! We raised the money for her wheel chair and showed her that life would be very different from now on. From here on in she would only know love, fun & friendship!
Rosie inspired us to begin a project. We've called it Rosie & Friends' Special New House, and it will be specialist housing for dogs, cats and large animals who are older or who have special needs, and will be purpose built for peace and healing. The building we want to use is currently a crumbing outhouse on our land! Basic clearing and dismantling work has been started but the work can’t continue until a builder is paid. For those animals waiting in the shelter who have lost limbs or are paralysed, this building is urgent. We need simple things such as a low level sink for washing them, and appropriate flooring for those who have difficulty moving around. Rosie's House will also be a place of peace & quiet for those recovering from surgery; the overrun city shelter is not an ideal place for an animal to heal.
If you'd like to help us build Rosie & Friends' Special New House, why not buy a brick? By donating £5 your or your pet's name (whichever you would prefer!) will be engraved on a plaque and cemented on a brick on Rosie's House forever! We will also send you a certificate of thanks to show your friends that you have helped to build a very special house!
