This is Yogi. I've been training him for 3 weeks now. He's 2 years old and he belongs to a 54 year old man with Down Syndrome and oncoming alzhimers. His name is Raymond. Raymond has 121 support daily and lives with his sister and her partner they are in their 70s and 80s. I'm quite a guarded person and I don't like to be touched. Today was the first time I met Raymond. He flew into the living room and he hugged me so hard he almost broke my ribs. He couldn't stop thanking me for training his Dog. The first trainer they had they threw out as they was told by said Trainer they shouldn't have Yogi. Raymond and Yogi are the reason I want to start Muttsnmischief. The people with disabilities, the people who are elderly. The Dogs are why I want to start Muttsnmischief. Not to be in competition with anyone as we will be a not for profit. But to create a safe place for people. For their Dogs and to create a Communtiy and jobs. I'm mad I spend hours on Mutts for no pay. Searching and applying for grants. Making posts and researching. And the committee also giving their time and volunteering to make this happen because we care about the Raymonds of this world. But please the next time you see me post about Mutts remember every bit of support goes a long way. Raymond spends his days in a snooker hall. He has little friends and Yogi is his life. Yogi currently goes to kennels at weekends to give Raymond sister respite. Imagine if the daycare centre was open. Not only would Yogi get stimulation but Raymond and his sister could also spend time there and make new friends. So please bear this in mind that these people do exist. Under the radar. And it takes a lot to take my walls down. But Raymond did all because I train his Dog. Now imagine the gratitude when Mutts is open. So please support us however you can. You never know when you may meet a Raymond and Yogi and I promise you if you have empathy you will care 🐶 please visit MuttsnMischief Doggy Daycare Social Enterprise to find out more

Do you love Dogs? Do you care about the people of Skegness especially the Elderly and Disabled? Would you like to help make a difference?
Are you 16 or over? Maybe your looking to boost your CV too?
Are you a strong communicator? Innovative? Bursting with fresh ideas and dont know how to use them? If yes, then read on...
We are searching for a dynamic team to put together to help us to Fundraise, to bring fresh ideas to the table and help us to bring much needed funds to the table for Muttsnmischief Doggy Daycare. Do you think you could help us to gather Raffle Prizes, to hold Fetes and Coffee Mornings? Could you help put Posters out and about?
What are we, what is our purpose?
We want to offer somewhere where people can enjoy Dogs if they can not have them through age and ailments. I want to offer work experience to youngsters. I want to help other Community projects in Skegness.
Charity's only normally help their own project. As a Social Enterprise I can help whoever I want. The money is not limited to the Doggy Daycare. So we will not be sat on a pile of money dead in the water which when we are up and running we may not need to use. So we can help community projects. This is why we are not are not a Charity and won't be. I want the freedom and approval from the Government to help others as we see fit. I have a Committee in place which help me run things and we are required to have one by law. So this is why I am doing it and this is what we are all about 🐶
5 year plan; to let the Daycare be run and managed by students and the Committee and set up my own Animal Rescue this time as a Charity specifically a Charitable Company which will specifically be helping difficult and misunderstood Dogs 🐕
If this sounds goof to you please email firstname.lastname@example.org in form of a CV or with a CV as well as letting us know why you would like to apply for a Voluntary position and what attributes you could share with us :)
A elegant evening for adults only. A 3 course menu (with 2 choices per course), entertainment which will not be revealed until the night. Booking in advance is essential as a deposit is required for the Suncastle for your preferred meal choice.
MuttsnMischief Doggy Daycare is a Social Enterprise much like the Cooperative. Instead of taking on Charitable status we wish to put our profits back into the Community by helping others projects. Hopefully we will be open Summer 2017 and we are totally reliant on fundraising to do this. We wish to offer exclusive places to the Elder community and the disabled for their Dogs to go. To socialise and be well cared for whilst their owners have a chance to do their own activities without worrying about the Dog. Headed by a fully qualified, certified and insured Dog supported by the Princes Trust. As well as trained Staff to care for beloved Dogs of our community.

Thankyou so much to Maddy Howarth who normally donates so much of her pocket money every Christmas to oxfam. Well this Christmas she wanted to donate to MuttsnMischief and gave me a whopping £67.80 (she even did extra chores bless her) how awesome is that. Also a massive thanks to John Naylor who emptied his change jar and gave us £206 so at his request £100 is going to Coningsby RESCUE Kennels 😎
Why not do a change challenge for us too? Save your change and put it in a little jar or even a smarties tube and let us know, finally get rid of your shrapnel and donate it. It would be most gratefully recieved 🐶

MuttsnMischief Social Enterprise is to offer 4 places exclusively at a discounted rate to the Elderly and Disabled of Skegness. Then we will have places for everyone else. The bigger the premises the more Dogs and people we can help. A Social Enterprise is like a Charity but instead we can plough our profits back into skegness community projects. Like your local Co Op but at a higher rate and to the Town of Skegness. Such as helping with a kids new play area. Improving the Day Centre for the Elderly, Skegness Carnival. Any worthy cause in skegness we will be able to support. But first we need the support of Skegness to get set up. Please if you would like to join the lotto add yourself to the group and then pick a number. Thankyou the MuttsnMischief team.https://www.facebook.com/groups/137848993372657/
