Blind pup rescued by Kent animal shelter

12-week-old blind puppy Belle was abandoned in a Kent park. A member of the public brought her to Happy Endings animal centre in Faversham.

The animal centre says that this time of year is especially busy but it is crucial the pup gets the medical attention she needs. David Johns speaks to Kate Arrowsmith, Vet; Chris Johns, Animal Sanctuary Founder; and Liz Vallance, Animal Fosterer.

Happy Ending for rescued animals

Animal charity "Happy Endings" in Faversham has been given a welcome £200 cheque donation on behalf of ASDA's 'Chosen By You' community fund.

The money was donated after staff and shoppers of the supermarket's store in Sittingbourne voted Happy Endings their winning community cause in September.

The charity says the donation is much needed as the site is full to capacity now, with more than 100 cats in its rehoming shelter and more expected as winter sets in. See
