We have issued our second annual Calendar - we hope you enjoy it
Back in the summer of '2016' we ran a fund raising raffle for the chance for someone to name a dog in the rather wonderful authors Clare Mackintosh's next book! Marie Davies won and she chose 'Rita' the name of her very own beautiful LCDR dog!!! The book is now out and 'Rita' the dog is the main character's dog and features throughout the book which is amazing not only that she is a Cyprus rescue dog but she's a 'Love Cyprus Rescue Dog'😃😃😃 Clare has also very kindly included... a lovely acknowledgement to LCDR at the back of the book - see pic below. 'Let Me Lie' is the no 1 bestselling book in the Sunday Times list this week!! This is amazing publicity for us at LCDR and we are very grateful to Clare Mackintosh for her generosity and support. Louise Brown who we cannot thank enough for arranging the competition, liaised with Clare and who adopted Jessica (her very own LCDR dog) from us has already read it and says "I've read the book it is simply brilliant, I could not put it down and obviously I fell in love with Rita ❤️ I thoroughly recommend it!" So if you all like a good read get this! This will keep you guessing until the very last minute!

Billy...don't let his life have been in vain...
December 2015. Last year a small friendly stray dog called Billy made the headlines in Cyprus and news of his plight reached around the world. He was dumped, alive, in a cardboard crushing bin at the Anastasia Hotel, part of the Tsokkos chain, by hotel employees. He survived for a short time rescued by tourists but later sadly died through his injuries. Read the story here. In the UK you might hope for some legal justice for this kind of animal cruelty. Unfortunately that's not the case in Cyprus where those accused have just been aquitted. But there are many thousands of people who are calling for this to change. If you are moved by this story please take the time to sign and share this petition or write to the President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades.
