Fire At Manchester Dogs' Home
Last night, someone set fire to a dogs' home in Manchester, which has been caring for strays and unwanted pets since 1893. 150 dogs were rescued, and so far 60 have died.
I can't believe anyone could be so callous.
These poor little things can't have had the easiest of lives considering they've ended up in a dogs home and now someone decides to burn them alive. It's utterly sickening. As a dog mummy I can't bear the thought of how frightened they must have been.
Manchester Evening News set up a Just Giving page for donations to help the survivors. They set a target of £5000 when the page opened twelve hours ago. When I donated about ten minutes ago the donations had already reached £365,000. Aren't the public brilliant?
The surviving dogs are being cared for all round the city and members of the public have been bringing blankets and food for them.
Here's the link to the Just Giving Page if you want to help:
