Chunk has been in police kennels for over 12 months after a incident occurred between Chunk and a intruder in the family home. Chunks case has been a long process, firstly through the magistrates court with numerous appearances and then through appeal proceedings at the crown court with over 5 hearings before a decision was made by a crown court judge to save Chunk and place him into the care of Carla Lane Animals In Need subject to a control order. Many people on social media have asked why Chunk cannot be returned to his original owner unfortunately due to a court order we cannot discuss this further.

Chunks original owner would like to thank everyone who supported him and Chunk through proceedings and  thank everyone who donated to help him fund Chunks expert assessment.  

Although this case is very bitter sweet we wish Chunk all the best with his new life. 

   

Tinkerbell is a very special dog and has a place in all of our hearts here at Parry and Welch Solicitors. Tinkerbell was a pup when she was seized by Merseyside police after her and another dog managed to escape out of their owners bank garden. The other dog was involved in a altercation with a much smaller dog so the police were called. The police gave the owner the option of rehoming both dogs, the elder dog was rehomed and Tinkerbell was signed over to Carla Lane Animals In Need. However before Carla Lane Animals In Need came to collect Tinkerbell she was seized by police as evidence. Tinkerbell was in kennels for approximately 2 years when our expert attended to carry out a assessment she was shocked and saddened by Tinkerbell's mental and physical state, she had no fight left in her she presented herself to the expert as a much older dog. She had knees which had fused together from being kept in a kennel sleeping on a cold hard floor while her bones were still forming. It is likely she had little to no exercise whilst there, she did not know how to interact, how to play with toys it was a very upsetting sight.

Luckily Tinkerbell was released to Carla Lane Animals In Need around 6 weeks ago now she has came on fantastic. After having a full veterinary exam it was confirmed that 3 year old Tinkerbell needs both knees replacing at a cost of £900 per leg. Her teeth have been checked by the vet who believed Tinkerbell to be around 8 years old from the condition of her teeth, many of these will be removed at some stage. However something very special happened to Tinkerbell on Friday she was rehomed to a very loving family who can provide her with all the love and care she needs. This girl deserves the biggest second chance there is she has a heart of gold. All at the office have met her and she is a gentle giant even around Casper (the office monster/pup) We fought so hard for Tinkerbell to be released and we can honestly say this is why we do we do to help save dogs like Tinkerbell to give them a second chance. 

Carla Lane Animals In Need are raising funds to pay for Tinkerbell's knee replacement they need as much help as possible donation details can be found below.
