NEAL is going to Jump for @CCDogRescue ! Neal is a vet working for the Roe Valley Veterinary Clinic in Limavady. He has volunteered to take a leap of faith, and jump out of aircraft at the Wild Geese Skydiving centre this month, with the hope of raising funds for the Causeway Coast Dog Rescue. A date will be published soon and we all aim to cheer him on with the jump on the day.  He has already finished his training and just needs to ‘save the date’ for the jump.  If you wish to sponsor Neal, click on the link below as we will be published the date next week, on when he will be doing the jump!

CCDR DOG CHARITY HOLDS CHRISTMAS CAROL SERVICE TO RAISE AWARENESS

Chairman of the Causeway Coast Dog Rescue, Maggie Dimsdale-Bobby, seen here introducing the amazing singers and dancers who appeared to entertain the shoppers in Coleraine as they raised awareness of the many dogs searching for their #furever homes during this time of year.

Causeway Coast Dog Rescue charity held their Christmas carol evening at the Diamond Centre in Coleraine. Raising awareness of so many unwanted dogs at this time of year which need ‘furever’ homes, the charity has been inundated with calls to take in unwanted dogs. The callers are being redirected to the CCDR as all other rescue centres are telling them they are full as the charity believes that ‘every dog deserves a second chance’.

The charity located on the north coast, received support from Millburn Primary School Choir, singer Sara Crockett and Innova Irish Dance company, who all came to sing and dance in front of shoppers outside their charity shop in the Diamond Centre Coleraine.

The Christmas songs and the bright red costumes of the Irish dancers made it an evening to remember for all those attending.

Chairman of the CCDR Maggie Dimsdale-Bobby stated, “I very much wish to thank everyone who came to support us with this year’s Christmas Carol Service. To all the teachers and mums supporting the school choir, to Sara and Hannah who are absolutely amazing singers and of course the infamous Innova who danced to every beat that was played. It was a fantastic evening.

“At this time of year is extremely difficult for dog rescue charities, but not much different from the other 11 months! Calls are never ending with requests to take in unwanted dogs. At the CCDR we also receive many calls looking for advice about witnessing cruelty and what can be done about it. It is heart-breaking and I appeal to everyone, please do not purchase a puppy but come to any rescue centre and rehome a dog. Every dog deserves a second chance and we always aim to find each dog the best home to match both the dog and the potential owner. Dogs can range from a few months old right up to ten years old and each one desperately seeks a new owner and family to be with. We have been working hard to build relationships with various agencies and groups to provide a holistic approach to dog welfare and rehoming. In over twenty years of working with dogs the issues do not seem to be going away or becoming any less of a demand for rehoming centres.”

The charity thanks everyone for their support and to please keep in touch through their social media sites and website to keep updated with information, news and dogs searching for their forever homes.  Have a great Christmas from everyone at the Causeway Coast Dog Rescue. @CCDogRescue.

Although located on the north coast we support families and individuals in every area. We were very kindly supported by our local MLAs to enable this all-inclusive community event to take place in this beautiful building.

“We are currently working on assessing the current position of homeless dogs all over Northern Ireland as we are finding that the demand for support from the charity has not decreased in recent years. If anything, it has increased.

It will be an amazing platform for the choir next to their renowned Christmas Tree.  Mulled wine and mince pies all round for everyone, with tea and coffee for those driving!

Maggie Dimsdale-Bobby, Chairman CCDR said, “the support we have had from individuals and local businesses has been amazing. On behalf of the Trustees and the volunteers, I can’t thank the team at Truva enough for this fundraising event. Every penny counts to give a dog a second chance, and we believe every dog deserves just that.  Since I established the charity, the number of calls received to rehome a dog is as high now as it ever was, so we know how important it is to have the support of the local community and to work in partnership with others. I look forward to the dinner and experiencing this fantastic award-winning restaurant and at £30per person for an evening which includes a three course dinner, drink on arrival and entertainment, our charity will also benefit from the support of those attending.”

Truva Chargrill Restaurant has won an award for the Best Regional Restaurant of the year, continues to do well with their support from local residents as well as interest from tourists coming to the area. Truva Delights Cafe is located on main street promenade Portstewart, while their restaurant provides some of the best possible Mediterranean and eastern dishes available, as well as catering for vegetarians, vegan and those with gluten allergies.

Turan, will be hosting the evening and will be on hand with his team to catering for all guests stating, “it is important that we at Truva work with our local community and the Causeway Coast Dog Rescue is vitally important as one of our local charities. We have so many dog owners who stop off for coffee at our Truva Delights in Portstewart, and many of our four-legged friends are rescue dogs from the charity which have now found their forever home.  We hope that this dinner and evening with entertainment will encourage everyone to come along and book a ticket to the event as we have limited numbers.”  For details of the menu go to www.truvachargrill.co.uk and to purchase a ticket it can reserved on line http://d36.co/12svY, or call into Truva Delights in Portstewart or to Truva Chargrill in Coleraine.
