A retired police dog handler named Steve Norman now drives a dog ambulance across the country of Ireland to help abused and unwanted animals. For the past six years, he has helped nurse these animals back to health and find happy new homes. Inside the air-conditioned ambulance, there are stacked mobile kennels with beds and the dogs listen to classical music on their way to rehoming centres. Norman is rescuing these dogs from being put to sleep and giving them a chance to make someone else’s life better as well.
- Dogs Trust has driven dogs from pounds and taken them in to nurse them back to full health to hopefully find a new home.
- Norman is a retired police dog handler and he drives one of the dog ambulances that Dog’s Trust uses.
- Demand for dogs has been increased due to the pandemic as people are stuck inside and want a new companion.
“The yellow van weaves its way out of the Penrith transfer centre, a large, extended cottage, with space for the dogs to stretch between journeys and surrounded by the north Lakes’ green hills and winding roads.”
