A Terrible Tragedy | Manchester Dogs Home Fire

We wanted to share a moment to give our thoughts to everyone, and every dog affected by the suspected arson attack that took place at the Manchester Dogs Home in Harpurhey on the at 7pm on 11/09/2014.  The shelter has been providing safety, and protection to dogs for over a century providing shelter to over 1million dos in its history.

As I sat to write this post at 11 o'clock last night 43 dogs had been killed as a result of the blaze, and many more have been seriously, or critically injured, and we hope and pray that this number does not increase. The death of any dog is a heartbreak and a tragedy to see so many lost to such a cruel and disgraceful act is harrowing.

As dog owners and dog lovers we are astounded that anybody could, or would ever commit such an act. 150 dogs were rescued from the blaze, and a 14 year old boy has been arrested in connections with the attack but at this time we strongly donate everybody to donate to the Just Giving page set up to fund the repairs and medical treatment of the dogs. Anything no matter how big or small will make a huge difference in this time of crisis and we urge anybody in the Manchester area to donate any blankets, leads, crates or other pet supplies to the Manchester and Cheshire homes.
