Hi,I am totaly new to discussion groups and apologise in advance if this is a previously covered topic.We will be spending a month or two in Mid France early 2018 and hopefully moving there permanently later in the year.We have three Alaskan Malamutes who have been on the BARF diet for over ten years now and they thrive on it.The BARF diet is gaining quite a big following here in the UK in recent years and there are now several good suppliers of the raw meat and bones.But to bring up to two months supply with us is not very practical and if we move there permanently I would need to find a proper supplier or a good butcher or abattoir.We would need reasonable quantities and regular supplies of:Chicken Carcasses, Necks & WingsTurkey Necks & WingsLamb RibsMinced raw meats and offalHearts, Livers, Kidneys, Tripe.Any other, otherwise waste cuts and bits.Any suggestions, would be most appreciated.BRIAN.

We need to put our 2 dogs into kennels for a weekend in December and would be really grateful if anyone has any personal recommendations.  We're going to look at one near La Chapelle Bâton and it would be good to know if anyone has used them?  Thanks in advance.

Hiyataking our cats to England for the first time via Tunnel. Can someone please tell me the procedure once we get to the Animal reception bit. Are the cats removed from their carriers or is the chip read through the grill. Have just receive their passports and all it shows is dob ,vaccination names,  type of cat European male but no details of colour etc Should this be on there. Sorry to ask all these questions but would hate to get there and find we do not have all the required paperwork. After pet reception do we then have to go through the normal check in for us?Thank you in advance

Having recently lost our dog we decided to opt for a private cremation to ensure we had his own ashes back (the vet told us that otherwise it would be a mass burning with other animals).We used a really professional company who were extremely caring and made the whole process bearable.Basically my post is to say that if anyone wants information on this and advice as how to organise it, then please contact me. It was very confusing for me to arrange at first as it doesn't seem a common request in rural France and I was also very upset. Now I have the knowledge I am more than happy to pass it on.

Is there a law in France regarding the minimum amount of space required for dogs?  Two (one medium, one large) hunting dogs are shut all day in a small metal car trailer.  The Mairie says that as the owner walks them twice daily no problem.  The walks are very short and very early morning ( still dark) and late evening ( dark) left therefore all day hardly able to turn around.

Hello, does anyone know of micro-chipping being done reasonably cheap (by a charity etc) which we could have done on our cat please? We need it done soon so to enable us to get a passport and then return to England with us next month. Thanks in advance.

Hello,I'm looking for someone who would be willing to feed my three barn-cats when I have to leave for a period of about 7-10 days (500 meters from Champagne Mouton center). It will happen about once every two months.  500 Meters from Champagne Mouton center. In exchange, I would provide the same help for your pets when you have to leave. Driving a small distance is no problem.Thanks,Peter

I have an 8 month old pup who could stand to learn some manners, as I'm not so sure he will "grow out of it." Can anyone recommend a trainer in the Aulnay/Saint Jean d'Angely area?

It is possible that we will be spending some time in England and need to take our cats with us. I have read the Government site but am a little confused. I understand all that needs to be done but am unsure as to how long the treatments last and do they have to be renewed before returning to France? Hopefully someone can help me. We will be travelling  via the Tunnel is it simple?. Thanks in advance

HiI shall be moving back to the UK shortly and I'm looking for a home for Freddy, my ginger cat.  I've looked after him ever since I arrived here in 2009 when we found him and his brother (who disappeared last year) as tiny stray kittens in one of the barns on the day we movedin.  Alfie, his sibling, was always leader of the pack and as he grew up became used to the dogs and visitors but Freddy was always the nervous, frightened one, who hated noise and people turning up, and never reconciled himself with the dogs.  The point of this is to ask if there is someone out there who could offer Freddy a home where it is quiet and peaceful, no children or dogs.  He lives in a very quiet rural spot here and would willingly respond to plenty of TLC.  Taking him back to the UK would be a very traumatic experience for him and it would be difficult anyway as I shall be staying with friends while I house-hunt.  I live between Ruffec and Civray, not far from Taize-Aizie, and you can reach me on 0535323354, 0602380653, or email [email protected]  Yvonne

Hi, Looking for a young Working Cocker Spaniel or Working Springer to adopt as a house dog. (For those that don't know, 'working' is the breed, we don't go hunting with our dogs). We live in the country with our two Spaniel bitches, 11 and 5, and would like to offer a good home to one more. Surrounded by good farm track walks and our own field to play in. Any info regarding adoption places gratefully received.

Hello, my daughter has gone off to Germany to live and it was such short notice that she had no one to take in her adorable male cat. Can anyone help! He has been castrated and really need to find a good loving home. He is excellent with other animals and children.

We have just rescued two lovely kittens from certain death at the hands of a neighbour and must find homes for them as soon as possible. We would love to keep them but one of our dogs absolutely hates cats.One is a long-haired ginger and the other a short-haired tabby. They were beginning to become affectionate and would soon settle in.We are about 10 minutes to the east of St Jean d'Angély (17) and could deliver them a short distance.
