Four Paws Committee
Jane joined Four Paws with her puppy Ellie, a Labrador Retriever, in January 2011, with the aim of socialising her young dog. Ellie progressed to adult classes and subsequently passed her Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards in the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme. In 2013 Jane adopted Lottie, a Labrador Retriever cross puppy, and she has now also achieved the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. Lottie and Jane “found each other” as Jane is a volunteer for Labrador Rescue. In October 2015 Jane adopted Dolly, a rescue dog from Yappy Ever After. Dolly was a “street girl” in Romania, who was abandoned after giving birth to a litter of puppies. Since moving to Oxfordshire, Dolly has passed her assessment to be a Pets As Therapy (PAT) Dog, and makes weekly visits to a primary school in Oxford and a Care Home in Bicester. Dolly has passed her Bronze, Silver and Gold KCGC Awards.
Jane is a trainer with Four Paws as well as our Chair.
