Cumnock’s Islay Dog Rescue Center is hosting a race night next month, after a successful draw provided much-needed support to the rescue centre.
Race night will take place on Saturday October 8 at the Craigie Bowling Club in Ayr.
“We held a raffle in September which offered great prizes and sold 607 tickets for around £1,200,” said Katy Edwards-Wood, assistant manager of the Islay kennel.
“We’re having a race night on October 8th at the Ayr Craigie Bowling Club where you can sponsor a runner for £5, the winner gets a prize or you can sponsor a race for £20 and get guaranteed fame.”
“For more information, please see the Islay Dog Rescue Facebook page.”
The center also presents its “dog of the week” which must be adopted.
Rudi is a cross from Romania. He suffered an injury while there, resulting in a painful limp. Once in Scotland, he had an operation to remove his front leg, but it doesn’t bother him at all.
Katy added: “He recently came back to the rescue after being adopted but due to his owner’s deteriorating health he came back to the rescue.
“Although he is well cared for in the kennel, he struggles with all the commotion of the other dogs. He is afraid that they will pick on him, so he is always alert.
“Rudi’s ideal home would be with a single person or a couple, he is more nervous around men and therefore would need more patience to become friends.
“He loves children, but he just feels that living with them might be a little too much for him. He doesn’t seem to mind cats so could live happily with a feline companion.
“He is fully vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and treated for parasites and assessed.
“If you would like to meet Rudi, please call Lorraine on 07876561545.”
