A BEQUEST by a mysterious benefactor is helping a charity rehome sheepdogs on farms in Pembrokeshire.
Rosemary Vaughan established a border collie rescue service in 1974, matching the dogs with farmers in need of a working dog.
There are currently 40 dogs that need homes but, because it is a voluntary body, it can be a financial challenge to raise public awareness among farmers of what the service can offer them.
That has now changed because the charity has been named in the will of a benefactor who had been living in Pembrokeshire.
A stipulation of the legacy was that the money should be used specifically to pay for adverts in local newspapers to spread the word about the charity’s work.
