Tusker has come home!

He's back in his rightful place and has been missed by everyone.

Tusker has come home!

‪He has been sorely missed by staff and visitors alike but now Tusker has returned home, back to the Centre, after having his make-over. He is back in his rightful place, greeting everyone that walks through our doors. Thank you to Merry Thought for supplying the original material and to Catherine Crowther for working her magic on him. We think he looks very smart now, here’s to another 15 years of fluffy greetings and cuddles!

From all of the team here, Tusker, “It’s wonderful to you have you back! x”
