  6. Dégustation du Printemps - gourmet Dutch cheese combined with a chance to meet "Phoenix"! – 20th April, 2013 Why not combine your passion for animals with your passion for food?! Phoenix Association is delighted to have been asked to represent itself at the annual gourmet food event of the Dordogne, the Dégustation du Printemps, on Saturday 20th April in Hautefort. Every year since 2006, “Fromagère Jolanda” opens its doors to visitors in order that they can taste the new season’s Gouda cheese. People flock from miles around as Jolanda is one of the few sellers of genuine Gouda (AOP) in France, in varying maturities and flavours. Not only that, there are also many other temptations, such as local wines, champagne, fish and chips, salted herring, olives, honey and much more. Phoenix will be there and will be very happy to meet and talk to you about its work and about the many animals available for adoption. The event is being held on Saturday 20th April from 4pm to 7pm at: Camping La Grenouille, Brégérac / La Besse, 24390 Hautefort For details of the event please telephone 05 53 50 11 71 We look forward to seeing you there.

  8. First Success of Phoenix's 'One Cat or Two' Campaign Annabel became Phoenix's latest cat Foster Carer after seeing our “One Cat or Two” campaign. She says she thought it was a great idea to get cats into homes while they're waiting for that special person to love them. Annabel already has 10 cats so when she took Lester she thought one or two more wouldn't make much difference! She says “it's like having another lovely cat with more fun and cuddles but without the potential vets bills”. If, like Annabel, you can make space for “One Cat or Two” please contact Lynda Atkins on 05 53 81 30 44 or email [email protected] To see Annabel and Lester go to www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance
  9.  HADDOCK (11 months old) My name is Haddock. There is a reason for me looking so sad….. At 2 months old I was found abandoned one night and turned up at someone’s door. A family adopted me... but they say they can’t keep me any more! I am only 11 months old but they say I have grown too bulky and cumbersome for them….. I long to go outside and play but nobody has any time or inclination to walk me. I adore being with people and children. Other dogs and cats are my friends. Please adopt me! I want to bounce and play and be happy again! For the meantime, I am living in Gers near Valence-sur-Baîse. My microchip number is 250269802097679 Please contact : Isabelle 0611896365 or Sabine 0677380507 To see Haddock go to www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance

  11. Phoenix– Special Appeal for Injured Shepherd Boy This adorable, 3 year old young male shepherd was rescued after spending nearly 3 days tangled in wire, without food or water. The vet who saved him was forced to amputate a piece of his hind leg, but otherwise, he's fine and is gaining strength. He weighs about 18KG, and is rather sad at the moment, but is going ‘home’ to recuperate with the vet and his wife on 29th December, where they will see how he gets on with their own 7 cats and 2 dogs! We are seeking an emergency foster or permanent family for him. If you are interested in helping out this lovely boy, please email Phoenix’s Richard & Sheelagh on [email protected], or please enquire directly to the vet, M. José Banquart on 06 61 44 32 68 or [email protected] To see a picture of this lovely boy go to our facebook page below. Thank you www.phoenixasso.com www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance
  12. PHOENIX Appeal for LILY Sweet Lily is an affectionate little 1 year old tabby girl, who was sadly found abandoned. She loves people and a cuddle and really wants to be sitting with you by the fire this winter! She is currently in Phoenix foster care, and now all she needs is her own family to love her. If you are interested in adopting Lily, please telephone Sharon 05 53 60 73 11 or email [email protected]. To see Lily and other Phoenix animals seeking homes, please see: www.phoenixasso.com www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance
  13. PHOENIX Appeal for RASTARasta is our ‘oldie but goldie’ girl 12 year old setter girl! She is just gorgeous – gentle, affectionate, good with cats, dogs and children. She’s even been taken to a restaurant by her foster mum, who says she settled down and snored through lunch! Apparently she knows how to make good use of her ‘sad eyes’ for a treat! If you are interested in adopting Rasta, please contact Margaret & Gary: [email protected] or 05 45 30 10 39 See Rasta and more Phoenix animals awaiting homes on: www.phoenixasso.com www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance
  14. PHOENIX Needs Cat & Kitten Foster Carers Phoenix Association deals with several calls every week from people who have found abandoned cats and kittens, or who need to re-home their cats. It's heartbreaking to have to turn so many away. To counteract this, Phoenix is recruiting cat / kitten Foster Carers. Are you interested? If so, please email [email protected] for further information. Thank You www.phoenixasso.com www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance
  15. Bergerac SPA now has a Facebook page Bergerac SPA, who partner with Phoenix Association, now have their own Facebook page. They have a bilingual staff member who is happy to help - please have a look at the animals awaiting adoption, as well as good news updates of those who have found homes. Please 'Like' their page to show them your support.http://www.facebook.com/spa24bergeracBilingual Staff Member - Aurélie Letellier - 06 88 94 40 25 or [email protected] Thank you The Phoenix Team
  16. Phoenix Appeal for Lizzie Just a puppy still, Lizzie has been waiting for a home of her own for a while. She turned up eariier this year as a stray in the garden of Rita Hoener, who kindly took her in and contacted Phoenix. Rita decided to keep Lizzie, but due to family circumstances, Rita now has to travel frequently to Germany, and it’s just not fair on Lizzie, so we’ve put her up for adoption. Lizzie is a little star - very affectionate, listens well, intelligent, good recall and very lively and fun – she loves to spring and run around. She is great with other dogs although a little vocal when she first meets one and she is getting accustomed to Rita’s cat, after being boisterous initially. Lizzie would suit an active person or family, and as she’s a curious and bouncy little tinker, a secure, fenced garden is a must. She’d love another dog for company too. We’re not sure why she hasn’t been adopted yet, as she’s also beautiful, so please, if you are thinking about it, contact Rita on 05 55 78 13 93 or email on [email protected] See photos of Lizzie on the Phoenix Facebook pagewww.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance and www.phoenixasso.com
  17. Phoenix Appeal for HONEY and PEACE    Dear All   No, Phoenix is not actually asking you to send us honey and peace, (although that would be very nice!!) - we're asking you to help us find a home for these two lovely creatures.   On the enquiries front, these two have scored 'nul points'. Sometimes this happens, and frustratingly, we don't really know why, but what we can say is that they are both adorable, so please, please help us find them the loving homes they deserve:   HONEY – beautiful, 1 year old Whippet X Terrier   Honey is highly intelligent and full of life. She loves to run and jump and so she would do well with an active person/family, happy to engage her energies – perhaps a good candidate for agility or flyball?!   Honey thinks it’s great fun to play with other dogs and she is very sociable. She is brilliant out on walks and is very obedient; her recall is second to none. She is so loyal and willing to please and will do just about anything for a treat or a cuddle. She loves children.   Now all she needs is her own family to love her.  She is currently with Foster Carer Sharon. Please telephone 05 53 60 73 11 or email [email protected].    PEACE – 7 Month Old Calico Girl Young Cat Poor Peace was dumped in a carrier bag, but luckily was found and is safely in Phoenix foster care.  Peace is confident, typically inquisitive, playful and mischievous. She gets on well with all the other cats and likes humans too, a lovely girl with very pretty markings. She wants you to be her purrfect friend! She is currently with Foster Carer, Lynda Atkins. Please telephone 05 53 81 30 44 or email [email protected] Photos are on the Phoenix website and Facebook pages – see:www.phoenixasso.com                                                               http://www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance
  18. 17th November, 10:00am near Bergerac Hello All In just 7 days' time, the annual Phoenix Sponsored Dogwalk will take place in Mouleydier, near Bergerac. This year, it's in memory of Yuppi, who completely stole our hearts, even though he was only with Phoenix for a couple of weeks.  Thankfully, we were able to provide him with a more happy life experience before he passed away peacefully and loved at last.  Sadly, there are so many more like Yuppi, and we can only save as many animals as our funds allow. Therefore, we are appealing to you to please sponsor the walk, or even to come along for fun and moral support! All details, including meeting times and how to sponsor, are on www.Phoenixasso.com/dogwalk We look forward to seeing you there, and as usual, huge thanks from us for all of your support.  http://www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance    
  19. Hi, it’s me, Hannah, again! Since my last appeal to you, nobody has called for me, and my Carers really don’t understand why!! Every day they tell me how sweet I am, how well behaved I am, and how I am never too jumpy or loud. I never mess in the house, and when I’m in the car, I just say, “wake me up when we arrive!” I really want to please my Carers and therefore I am never far away if I walk off-lead and I do my best to do (or not do!) whatever you ask of me. My wishes are modest and are the same as for any dog: a nice warm bed, a garden to amuse myself in and to accompany you whenever I can. But most of all I want your cuddles and affection! - I haven’t been given much affection so far in my life so I am making up for it now! I must say though that I don’t like to share all of this with other dogs! If you or anyone you know think I could be your forever friend, please call my Carer, Patricia, on 05 53 50 40 76. Thank you. Hannah xx You can see pictures of Hannah on www.phoenixasso.com and http://www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance
  20. Hi Everyone, As many of you know, each Autumn Phoenix holds a Sponsored Dogwalk as a memorial to one of our "gone but not forgotten" Phoenix dogs.  This is the ninth time we have held the event and on 17th November we will be walking in memory of dear little Yuppi.  Please visit  http://www.phoenixasso.com/dogwalk.html to read about Yuppi and for details of sponsorship.  We're currently low on funds and badly need your aid so that we can continue to help dogs like Yuppi.   Thankyou The Phoenix Team www.phoenixasso.com www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance  
  21. Christine Endres from Phoenix completed her sponsored 1800km challenge on Sunday 14th October. Christine has cycled 900km AND walked 900km, all to raise money for the animals in need. Christine is still in Spain, and despite being exhausted, has been badly bitten by the adventure bug, and doesn't want it to end! We are really in awe of her spirit and her fitness - this second phase of her challenge has taken her SIX weeks to complete, that's an average 20km walk every day for six weeks. So far, she has raised just over €1,500, which is fantastic. If you still want to sponsor Christine, please note, the closing date for sponsorships is Saturday 20th October. You can either send a cheque, payable to Association Phoenix, to Roger Farrow, Les Jabauds, 24380 Vergt, or you can use your credit / debit card to sponsor online at http://www.phoenixasso.com/challenge.html Thank you to all who have generously sponsored Christine, and huge congratulations to Christine herself and to her friends and family who have supported her. The Phoenix Team www.phoenixasso.com www.facebook.com/PhoenixAssociationFrance
