29 October 2016
WCQ Whippet Rescue
A huge vote of thanks to our outgoing club Rescue Officer ....

Sadly, our totally amazing Rescue Officer Sue Spencer has made the very difficult decision to give up her position with the Whippet club due to other important life commitments.
In the years that Sue has held the position she has worked tirelessly not only to re-home many many rescue Whippets ... but so to in organising our wonderful Fun Days and fundraising efforts towards the rescue work she has carried out on behalf of the club. Her dedication to the welfare of needy Whippets cannot be measured, with the amount of time, effort, dedication, travel and worry that she has put into such a demanding 24/7 task.
Your tireless efforts will be much missed by all Sue - and from the club and heaps of happily re-homed whippies - thank you again!

Sue will continue until the end of December and the details of replacement Rescue Officer
will be updated as soon as such is available.
