Welcome to Twilight ~ the retirement home for dogs

La maison de retraite pour les chiens

The Twilight Puddings with Mum and Dad, Leeanne and Mike, thank you for visiting our website. Established over nine years ago, Twilight is a family home where on average thirty old, sick and disabled dogs are cared for with love for the rest of their days.

Please explore the website – you can read more about the Twilight story on the 'about Twilight' page, meet all the current Twilight Puddings on their own page, or read the moving stories of Twilighters passed over the Rainbow Bridge. The latest Twilight news appears below, but you can also check out the Dates for your Diary, Fundraising Reports, Twilight Thankyous, or find out how you can help the Twilight Puddings by clicking the links or the tabs above.

The Puddings send special thanks to ...

Team Puivert who made a massive €1900 at their Christmas Fayre on November 25, all the volunteers who helped at the Team Workday Chez Twilight on November 30, including folks from SWAT, Rainbow, Limoges SpA and Hope, and special Twilight friends , too. You’ve also been collecting the ‘brown stuff’ which we cashed in at the supermarket for another €100 worth of cleaning products. Paul has been busy with the chainsaw, cutting up some felled trees, such hard work – thank you. The Puddings thank you from the bottom of their paws.
