Quote.....Well could you put me onto some places that don't charge for dogs please. As most of the ones i have looked up on the internet say they have a small fee for dogs or a deposit.
I would be more than happy to share this information with you. You will see that I have also put comments in against some and this is just some of the places about. Cheers....
