Our wonderful friends at Scampers of Soham have been cooking up a frightfully good seminar with popular holistic vet, Dr. Nick Thompson, BSc (Vet Sci) Hons, BVM&S, VetMFHom, MRCVS. Dr Nick is a fully trained vet with over 20 years experience. He blends a conventional medical approach with complementary methods including homeopathy, acupuncture and herbal medicine. Dr Nick has a special interest in immunology, and so this seminar is not to be missed – not only will you get the benefit of his vast experience and knowledge, but we all know how infectious (pun intended!) a passion for a subject can be. The seminar will cover:Read More →

And so Autumn is upon us. The last few events of the season always tend to be a little more unpredictable with the weather and a little muddier under foot, but the indoor ones start to creep in now, and are always much appreciated. Phoenix FBR has enjoyed a very successful year of events and has enjoyed spreading the Orange around the UK. It has been a delight to meet so many of our followers, supporters, volunteers and their own dogs too. October sees a much larger-scale partnership with Barklife Events who are fully supporting Phoenix FBR and helping to raise funds and awareness, andRead More →

As a serving police officer with 10 years’ experience, 7.5 years of it as a front line response officer, I’ve had my fair share of run-ins with the animals, be it adorable kittens, ponies wandering the high street at 3am, or dogs. The majority of my run-ins have either been with woofers that belong to the public or police dogs. Dogs belonging to the public have varied from friendly Frenchies to the slightly bitey (as experienced by my shin – see further down for the full story). The remainder of my experiences have been with police dogs, although I wouldn’t describe these as cute andRead More →

Well, August was an absolute whirlwind for Phoenix… Thousands of miles on the cars, lots of pennies in the pot, and many new members offering their much needed help and support. Here’s where we were this month, and a breakdown of how it all went… 5th/6th August This was a very popular weekend indeed – Phoenix appeared in FOUR (yes, I typed that right, FOUR) events over the course of the weekend. We painted the country orange at Woodstock in Dartmouth, The Great Bully BBQ, The Tatton Park VW Show, and Barklife in Lowton. The weekend was full of fun and, as usual, the GreatRead More →

This month has been full of events all over the country. The summer is our busiest time of year, and the Orange Army has been out in force! Jumble Rumble – 1st July We kicked off the month with a huge haul of donations going to the jumble sale. Who knew that bags of clothes could be SO heavy? This event took place in Bedford and so was attended by Founder, Teresa Cargill, and Regional Manager, Sam Bone. We were even assisted by one of our wonderful trustees, Patricia Butler. It was quite the showing from Phoenix and well over £100 was raised on theRead More →
