We are so pleased to add Flori’s Friends Rescue to our collection of charity seed packet wedding favours!
Flori’s Friends are a 100% non-profit charity, dedicated to helping and rehoming abused and unwanted animals in Britain and across Europe. They specialise in dog trauma and neglect cases, with 70% of their dogs having been subjected to excruciating pain and injury/torture. 50% of them come from killing stations in Europe. Dogs that end up in these places are either severely abused and mishandled or cruelly and inhumanely destroyed.
Although Flori’s Friends rescues all sorts of able-bodied animals, they specialise in rehabilitating and rehoming disabled dogs, assessing their needs, operating on them and providing them with wheelchairs so they can start to enjoy life. This often means taking the dogs other charities won’t touch and working with them – no matter how long it takes. The charity has a strict “no-kill” policy. (photos above courtesy of Floris Friends)
We are so pleased, here at Wildflower Favours, to be helping this charity. We visited some of the little darlings as this charity is not far from us and we were totally smitten by the few adorable special dogs we met! Flori’s Friends do an amazing job but their specialist work is expensive and they need all the help they can get to carry on their fantastic work for these poor abused animals.
They also provide emergency accommodation and treatment for dogs at local homeless shelters until their owners can get back on their feet. Their street team also provide blankets and dog coats throughout the winter months for the homeless and their dogs.
Natalia, founder, runs small after-school dog training sessions for secondary school pupils in the Kent area that are on behavioural report. These sessions help provide these kids with a sense of responsibility and a hands-on approach to learning. Many sessions result in a huge improvement in behaviour at school.
Their team give educational talks at schools, colleges and universities across the UK. No matter the level of education, Flori’s provides students with knowledge on topics from general pet husbandry to street dog behaviour as well as spreading the word on supporting animal rescues.
