For our April Club night, we had Allen Parton give us a talk on the charity ‘Hounds For Heroes’ which is the main charity we are supporting at this years, Overlord Show.
Allen spoke of his life and how having his dogs had brought him back a life after his terrible brain damage and how they had completely transformed his life, from not speaking and being completely shut down, to the present
day and giving talks and helping others.
Although he moved some of us to tears, his talk was also full of humour. The difference with this charity is that the dog’s needs are fully funded by the charity, as most people with these injuries have little money and all food and veterinary expenses are paid for.
