Chatter box Hearing Dogs for Deaf People is calling on the community to help raise funds for a new pup-mobile. The charity's crowdfunding appeal aims to achieve a £15,000 target in just five weeks for a vehicle to transport puppies and hearing dogs across the UK.

The charity urgently needs the vehicle to transport people, puppies, equipment and dogs-in-training. This includes delivering hearing dogs to their new recipients, moving puppies between training centres and taking dogs to receive health checks.

The charity say that anyone who donates to the pup-mobile will have the opportunity to receive an exclusive reward in return. However, they will only receive the vehicle if the target is achieved within the time frame.

Professor Tim Gruffydd-Jones to receive Feline Foundation Award

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) will this week recognise University of Bristol feline medical specialist, Professor Tim Gruffydd-Jones, BVetMed, PhD, with the 2014 AVMF/Winn Feline Foundation Award.

The AVMA will honour some of the nation's top veterinary surgeons, individuals and organisations during several events and ceremonies. The recipients of the awards are dedicated professionals who have made a difference in the lives of both animals and people across the country and the globe.

The AVMF/Winn Feline Foundation Award is given annually to a distinguished member of the association. It honours the recipient's long-term commitment to advancing feline research.

Professor Gruffydd-Jones has devoted much of his career to feline medicine and has won several other awards for his work, including the BSAVA Woodrow Award. He is interested in all aspects of feline medicine, but particularly infectious diseases, gastroenterology, endocrine disorders and breeding problems.

He was chairman of the Feline Advisory Bureau, now known as International Cat Care, from 1980-2002 and is currently deputy chairman of Cats Protection, the UK's largest cat rescue charity.
