A COUPLE have clocked up 25 years of rehoming animals.

Deerness Boarding Kennels and Cattery, in Langley Moor, is run by Kevin and Linda Forsythe.

As well as looking after pets while owners are on holiday, they also find homes for stray dogs.

Deerness has a separate block of kennels for rescue dogs called Stray Action Dogs and the couple have helped thousands of dogs find new homes over years.

Mr Forsythe said: “These dogs are mostly homeless through no fault of their own, through family circumstances, owner's ill health, bereavement, being abandoned or abused, or just that their owners don't want them anymore.

“We have a non-destruction policy so that all dogs have a safe haven until a suitable home can be found.”
