Rescue dogs to be stars of 2024 charity calendar 

A charity calendar, featuring dogs rescued in Northumberland is now for sale with all the proceeds going directly to three local animal charities. 
The calendar features twelve dogs that have been rescued by Northumberland County Council’s animal welfare team and partner charities. Each dog has their back story printed alongside their photograph. 
The calendars are available for a minimum donation of £4.49 and can be ordered online  or by contacting the animal welfare team on 0345 600 6400.  
All the proceeds from the sales of the calendar will go to three local animal charities: Berwick Animal Rescue Kennels, Northumberland Greyhound Rescue and Northumberland Dog Rescue. 
One of the rescued dogs featured in the calendar is Larry who was found wandering the streets. He wasn’t microchipped and was never claimed. Larry ended up with a happy ending as he was rehomed with the person who found him. 
Another featured dog is Ruby. She was found abandoned at Druridge Bay Country Park. She was taken to safety but was incredibly shut down. She has been rehomed and after five months she eventually started wagging her tail. 
Northumberland County Councillor Gordon Stewart, cabinet member for Looking after our Communities said:  "The rescue kennels are very busy caring for mistreated, unwanted or neglected dogs before they are carefully rehomed. They are costly to run and depend on the generosity of donations. 
If you are able to, please purchase a calendar - it’s a great way for you to support three local animal charities who we work closely with and help them continue their fantastic work.
