Milburns Supports Local Fundraiser
Posted: 20th July 2017
Milburns Solicitors are proud to support a Zumba fundraising class that is being held on Saturday 22nd July 9-10am at Gilcrux Village Hall! A raffle is also being organised with some amazing prizes!
The Zumba event is being held to raise money for Bear, a 3 year old Double Blue Merle Collie Cross. Kate and Rob adopted Bear in August 2016 from the RSPCA. She was removed from her previous owner with 10 other dogs as a result of neglect. Bear was born as a result of 2 merles being bred together. This is highly irresponsible as breeding two merles together will result in a 25% chance that each pup in the litter will be deaf, blind or deaf and blind.
Thankfully Bear still has her eye sight for the most part, however she is deaf. Bear can't see very well on bright, sunny days as her pupils are starburst in shape and therefore her pupils don't contract the way they should in response to bright light. Kate and Rob have bought her some dog sunglasses to protect her eyes in the sunshine and she enjoys wearing them on her walks! Other than her eyes and ears, she had a clean bill of health from the vet at the RSPCA, however Kate and Rob were not able to get pet insurance due to these issues.
Kate and Rob have spent hours teaching Bear hand signals and training her and giving her an amazing life! They have now discovered that Bear needs a hip replacement. This will cost £5500 and is essential for Bear to live a pain free life.
Milburns have donated a voucher for the Raffle for Standard Mirror Wills. There are other amazing prizes available including a Back, Neck and Shoulder Massage Five Senses Hideaway, a voucher for Amethyst Health and Beauty, a meal at Bar'n Bistro, Gilcrux and much more!
