A merry time to you all. This has been a good year for me personally. We have really managed to get HOVAR going well. We have some good helpers, good fosterers, good supporters and good financial backers.. I have met some lovely people who I hope to continue meeting and working with etc through 2011. Plenty to get my teeth into after Xmas. The shop is now a very real possibility early in the new year. I have plans to improve the finances of the group to be announced shortly. When we open the shop we will need as many volunteers as possible to form a rota so if you can spare a few hours a week on a regular basis please let me know. Special mentions to Salvador and Conchi our vets who I have visited about 60 times since we started. Without Salvadors very generous prices we would be bankrupt. Also to Dave and Jean at the kennels who work tirelessly for very small financial gains to love and care for so many of our dogs. The day I met them has made all the difference to our ability to help the dogs.
