New volunteer; Candice :)
« on: August 04, 2014, 10:56:09 AM »
Hello everyone!

My name is Candice Longstaff and I will be starting to volunteer on Saturday!
I live in Caerphilly, Cefn Hengoed but I am originally from Bath, England.

I own 2 Jack Russells who are 4 & 5. Dottie (spayed) girl and Charlie a (neutered) boy. I love all animals and can't wait to help out you guys!

I spoke to Alison on the phone last week who was lovely and will be contacting her again Thursday in regards to Saturday. I have also spoken to Maggie, one of your lovely team about a dog in her foster care, Granny. Me and my fiance were (hoping) to adopt her but as you know she sadly had a stroke the day before she was due to come over :(

As long as Granny is happy and recovering, thats all we care about!

I am looking to adopt a golden oldie (female) and have a soft spot for Jacks & Staffies! So will have a hidden (or not so well hidden!) agenda when helping you guys out!

I am so excited to start volunteering!

Can't wait to meet you all!

Kind regards,

Candice xxx

Welcome Candice ;D
I'm sure you will fit right in with our mad bunch - sounds like you are dotty on dogs so you must be OK ;)
I'm LyndaG, married to AliG - we are doting Mam and Dad to the gorjuss AlvinG (FourPaws baby Alvin the basset hound).
I'm sure we'll meet up at various events - we usually help man a stall at the Paws4Tea events and I send out  Thank You cards to all our lovely, generous supporters, so you know where I am if you need anything like that.
Look forward to meeting you.
Lynda

Hi Candice and a big welcome to 4Paws :)  I'm Elaine and live in Caldicot and have been a fundraising for about 17months (recruited by Alison) and love it.  It's hard work but well worth it - looking forward to meeting you soon. xxx

Hello everyone!

Thank you all for your warm welcomes!  :laugh:

Apologies for the late replies, I'm always here there and everywhere (as to be expected with 2 JR Terrors!)

Aaaaaw so glad little Granny is doing well!  :laugh: she truly is a star!

Hey Rena! Aaaah another Somerset girl! I always used to go to Keynsham, in fact my first dog Dottie was from there! I often drove past en route to Brislington collecting goodies for the dogs at Pets at home!

Haha Lynda G! I am mad...its what 2 Terriers do to you! Thank you very much :)

I cant wait to meet all of you and know I will soon! I am meeting Alison tomorrow and get to meet the dogs, I am so excited. SHOW ME THE STAFFIES! I cant resist a Terrier!

See you all soon!

Kind regards,

Candice xxx

Thanks also for the lovely toys which the kennel dogs will love ;D and the collars, leads and harnesses etc which will be put to good use.
See you soon.

Thank you Alison, it was my pleasure  :)
I will text you tomorrow about how/when I can help out next!
Fantastic! So glad they can help out other doggies! I will continue to buy bits and bobs when I do my shopping to donate too.
