OUR HISTORY & MEMORIAL
Springer Spaniel Rescue was created by Glynn & Wendy Griffiths in 1998 on the 17th July with the very first Springer boy called Tag! Wendy ran the website and Glynn dealt with the re-homing of the Springer’s and this way they have successfully homed over a thousand dogs .The team has now grown allowing more Springer’s to be rescued.
We are sad to announce that Wendy Griffiths died on Thursday 28th March 2013
Wendy was a great support to Glynn in all aspects of their life together. Many of you will have spoken to her on the telephone even if you never met face to face. Her love, enthusiasm and strength shone through all she did. She championed the cause of dogs and most especially the Springer’s which were close to her heart. Glyn and Wendy founded Springer Rescue 15 years ago after working with other Springer rescue groups. Their commitment to the dogs they have re-homed has enabled many hundreds of dogs to find new loving homes. Wendy managed our Website which is often the first contact many owners have had with the rescue and she continued to be involved with this even when her health was not very good.Unfortunately in the last year her health deteriorated and she was no longer able to walk her beloved dogs and recurrent chest infections meant spending increasing spells in hospital. She was unable to attend Crufts this year which was an annual event she looked forward to.Our thoughts are with Glyn at this sad time.
A collection at Wendy's funeral has enabled the Rescue to install a bench in her memory.
It is at Beacon Country Park ,Dalton,WN8 7RU.
