Little Piglet urgently needs our help!

Teckels is asking for help with funding a lifesaving operation for Piglet the French bulldog.

Piglet arrived at Teckels two weeks ago with a breathing problem, and it quickly became apparent she needed veterinary help. She has just had an operation to widen her nostrils and some minor surgery to her throat, but she sadly has stage 2 Laryngeal collapse. This will require her to be referred to a specialist centre and could cost up to £3000.

I'd like to help

A great doggy day out at The Valley
On Sunday 8th July Teckels will be attending the summer dog show at The Valley, Evesham.

It will be our very first time at this event so please come along and join us for a great doggy day out! As well watching the show or entering your four-legged family member into the fun dog classes you can also spend time exploring The Valley.

Set in 125 acres of picturesque countryside, The Valley has a great range of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities, making it a  fantastic location for families and dog walkers. So save the date and support Teckels at this fabulous event. We hope to see you there!
Our annual summer fun dog show is back!
Our annual summer fun dog show is fast approaching and raffle tickets are now on sale in the reception at Teckels. Tickets cost just £1 and there are some fantastic prizes including days out, tasty hampers, and meals out for families and couples.

The show takes place between 11am and 4pm on 12th August at Saul Junction Marina, Church Lane, Frampton, GL2 7JY, and we can’t wait to see everyone there! Our fun dog show and ‘doggy dash’ will be running all day, and there will be a variety of stalls and refreshments.

Volunteers needed!
Our annual summer fun dog show is a fantastic event enjoyed by all and also one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. The day would not be possible without the support of our amazing volunteers and this year we are looking for 40 people to help on the day. Volunteers are needed from 10.15am to 4.15pm, so please let us know if you can spare a few hours during the day or even help for the whole event!

Please email Clare at for more information. Thank you.
On your bike for Teckels!
Don’t forget our sponsored static cycle event which takes place on 1st September at Gloucester Quays. We are looking for cyclists of all types and abilities!

The aim is to complete a tour around the UK but all in one location on a static gym bike. There will be shorter and longer legs of the journey but all are on static bikes. We have three bikes available all day so we are looking for a number of riders to share the job. 

Please email Hannah if you would like to take part. Thank you! 
Spring fair is a spectacular success
Our first ever spring fair and fun dog show raised a brilliant £1650! This money will be a great help towards the refurbishment of our kennels and cattery which we are hoping to carry out later this year.
Thank you to everyone who attended and to all the volunteers who supported Teckels on the day by giving up their free time. Photos can be found at

Rehoming update

Happy tails!

Thanks to your support we have found forever homes for 13 dogs and 20 cats since our last newsletter. Below are Buddy the beagle and Petal the cat who recently went to their new homes. 

We have had a number of collies at the centre during the past few months who have happily now found loving homes. Max the collie, Buddy the collie pup, and two merle collies called Heidi and Patch can all be seen here settling in with their new families.

Help us to support our older residents

Recently we have been caring for quite a few dogs who are older and/or unwell. Our charity does not discriminate against dogs who are in their twilight years and we are committed to helping them as much as possible. During the past few weeks have welcomed the following dogs to the centre:

Rad and Lucy: our lovely older Labradors
Rad hasn't had the best time and has lived outside most of his life. He arrived with a massive lump on his side and waddling very slowly. After x-rays and investigations we found that Rad has chronic arthritis and will remain on pain relief for the rest of his life. His lump also turned out to be cancerous and we have removed it. We hope that this should be enough but will be monitoring him closely. 

Lucy arrived at the centre with her friend Rad. They were both grossly obese and needed to diet immediately to make sure their health did not deteriorate. The Teckels teams, along with our vets, decided that a specific vet-advised food would be best to make this happen. As you can imagine these specific foods are expensive, even with our vets’ amazing support. 
Albert: our gorgeous Jack Russel terrier
Albert is 14 years old and has heart failure so we have made ongoing investigations into how we can best support him. The poor little chap also had a detached retina which, although stable at the moment, was costly to diagnose. 
Nellie: our marvellous mastiff
Nellie is nine years old and is currently being fostered by a Teckels foster family. She is undergoing investigation with the vets for urinary issues and is likely to require long-term medication. 
Norbert: our lovely lurcher
Norbert is not an older resident but one who arrived in a very poorly condition. He was extremely skinny and had an injured tail. After treatment and attempts to help him with his tail it was decided that our vets would have to amputate. After his recovery time he felt much better and it was lovely to see him wagging his stump! 
As you can imagine these dogs are loved by all the team here at Teckels however they do come with medical issues and these are costly to the charity. We have spent around £3000 in the past few months alone on dogs needing extra care. We can only help these dogs with support from the public and other fundraising activities so if you are able to make a small donation please visit

Every donation we receive will make a real difference. If you aren't able to donate please share this message with your friends and family and help us to spread the word. Thank you.
