In May 2019, 21 Happy Paws supporters abseiled for our charity from the i360 in Brighton!
Lisa joined them and says it was an amazing morning and simply incredible watching them one by one taking their life in their hands and abseiling down.
We know just how hard this was for some but the courage that was shown was simply breathtaking!
We can’t thank them all enough - especially Sarah Padget who organised the event.
Thanks to their kindness and fundraising efforts we are able to offer another 7 lucky kids the chance of a happy life.
At the end of July, on a lovely Summer's day, we had a little gathering at Freedom Field Bluebells of some the beautiful Goldens we have rescued and rehomed.
It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and the field was full of over 25 of our gorgeous kids and their wonderful families.
It was so special to see how happy, healthy and loved all our goldens are and they are all simply thriving .
You would never know what a vile start they all had.
We also raised £400
which was fantastic.

Our wonderful friends at Golden Get Together Midlands held a virtual coffee morning for us in April 2020.
We all took time out to enjoy a coffee and cake!
And shared our pictures.
This incredible group of golden lovers raised an amazing £600.
We are so grateful - in these uncertain times the funds are very much appreciated.
Special thanks to Kathryn, Andy and Chrissie for organising it.
On behalf of the goldens who need us more than ever
We at Happy Paws HQ are simply overwhelmed!
In April 2020 Happy Paws rescue Murphy was just about to celebrate his 1st Gotcha Day.
To mark the occasion and the love and joy that Murphy has brought to their lives, his Dad decided to raise much needed funds for one of our recent rescues, sweet Netty, who needed a major operation.
Together with Murphy's Dad, the wonderful people at Golden Retriever GB, Get Together in The Midlands Golden Retriever sites and our own Happy Paws supporters, they raised £1,000.
Netty has now had her operation and is currently in foster care waiting for transport to the UK very soon.
Thank you again to everyone, especially Murphy and his Dad.
We have been alerted to this poor lad, tied up on a chain with only an empty bowl for company!
He is alone and only fed every other day if he's lucky with bread!
It’s so soul destroying - we work so hard for these kids and the cruelty and neglect just seems to get worse.
We are at full capacity but we will not look away. We will never turn our backs as these golden's who need us so badly.
We have called him Oliver as when our rescuer went up to him he picked up his bowl as if he was asking for more!
He was immediately given a bowl of fresh water and some food and he really appreciated that.
If you could please find it in your heart to help dear Oliver - we need to raise funds for his vet care and transport to foster.
His Happy Paws journey starts today.

Thank you ALL so much. Your kind and continued support is very much appreciated xxx.
Not much makes Lisa cry with frustration and disbelief any more as she has heard and seen it all, but today has been an incredibly upsetting day.
These two beautiful souls have endured the horror of being beaten and raped by some vile excuse for a human being!
Her anger resulted in breaking down and crying for these dear precious goldens - how people think this is acceptable is so beyond our comprehension.
Lisa's anger soon kicked in to doing what she does best - saving their lives and getting them to safety.
They are now both in a place of safety and have seen the vets who confirmed what had been happening.
Lisa has made them the Happy Paws promise today - to look after them for forever!
We have called the boy Milton and the girl Purdy.
Yet again we are having to ask for your help.
We need to raise urgent funds to keep them safe and cover all their vets bills.
Please if you can help click on the link below.
Thank you all so much for your kind support. We truly appreciate all your kind and continued support xxxxx
Life on the street is so hard - although the dogs learn to survive, what they have to face on a daily basis is simply horrendous.
Life is hard!
There is simply no help for them so they endure skin conditions (such as Image 1), broken bones (such as Image 2 and 3) and starvation, to name but a few.
We really need your help to keep the vet scheme going and show these poor souls we care.
The pictures are upsetting, but they are just a few of the dogs who have our required help. They have received vet care now and have been treated for their injuries.
No amount is too small - every penny is appreciated and we are so grateful.
Even in these awful times Happy Paws is still rescuing and the sad fact is our help is needed more than ever.
The emotional toll of running a rescue is very stressful but we can not look away - we are these dear souls voice and we will keep standing up for them in their hour of need.
Dear Penny, the retriever, is under our care and was found in a desperate state - she is now receiving the right treatment but I have to ask for your help in continuing her care.
The little Spaniel is Bo and he has been attacked by street dogs and needs to have an operation to remove his eye!
It just goes on and on.
We appreciate times are tough for everyone but if you could find it in your heart to help us keep these two sweet souls safe we would be so grateful.
Any amount no matter how small will help keep them safe and give them the care they need.
Thank you so much. Together we are making a difference xxx.
