The meeting was opened by the new chairwoman Nicola Drake who introduced the speaker for the evening, Barbara Emons, who is the supporter relations officer for the Dogs Trust at Snetterton.
Formally known as the National Canine Defence League, which was founded in 1891, it is the largest dog welfare charity. There are 17 reforming centres with another to be opened shortly in Dublin.
Barbara described the work carried out at Snetterton. No healthy dogs are ever destroyed, most dogs come as handover from owners unable to keep the dog and from strays from local authorities. The vast majority are found new homes. The building at Snetterton was rebuilt in 2001 and can accommodate 75 to 80 dogs. Barbara showed a selection of photographs of dogs in the home and some that have been rehomed.
