Death of our much-loved patron

Published on Apr 15, 2017

It is with great sadness that we report that on 7th April 2017 our patron and dear friend Mary, Lady Herries of Terregles, passed away at her Sussex home.

The world of dog welfare is a poorer place without her.

A memorial service is expected to be held in Dumfries later in the summer and we will update this post when we have the details.
