FOBCK

I volunteer with Friends of Birkenhead Council Kennels and this week I was at the fundraising from New Ferry CO-OP. It was a lovely experience and I had the pleasure to meet a few very nice ladies. The council wants to close the kennels and the dog warden and move it very far, in Liverpool. […]
