Emily was safe and very happy and we cannot ask for more than that. Run free dear Emily.” πŸ™

The tragedy of Toby (Oldies Club, fostered Lancashire)

Toby arrived in foster care and it quickly became clear that he had very serious health problems. After examination by the vet, who confirmed that Toby was in a lot of pain and couldn’t be saved, he was put to sleep in his poor foster carer’s arms. Our thoughts are with Toby and his lovely foster carer. πŸ™

1/7/16 We are so sad to hear that poor Tiggy was nearer the end of her life than was thought and she has now passed away. The saddest thing is that some lovely people had offered Tiggy a home and were due to pick her up today. πŸ™ Sleep tight, Tiggy.

21/02/2016 – Casper found his home 6 weeks ago but he started having fits last week. He had a fit last night and was taken to the vet.

Not nutty, Nutty (Oldies Club, fostered Northants)

Amy (Halfway Home Dog Rescue, Notts)

3/12/15 – Sad news today from Dogs Trust: ‘Sorry to bring you the sad news that Max our 11 year old Kelpie crossbreed has passed away. He was with his favourite carer, our Assistant Manager Kerrie.

Megan, an angel (Oldies Club, fostered Wales)

Mysterious Millie (Oldies Club Sponsor Dog)

10/02/2016 – Millie has sadly passed away πŸ™
Little Millie is something of an enigma and likes to be a lady of mystery, until she forgets herself for a moment and has a mad burst of playfulness or affection! Millie is a joy to get to know, but don’t rush her or expect her to want cuddles. Millie likes calm dogs and can live with older children. Oh, and her tail is said to resemble that of a platypus!

Lovely Leo (Oldies Club Sponsor Dog)

Lovely Leo is an adorable 16-year-old American Cocker Spaniel boy, who came into the care of Oldies Club in 2015.

1/11/15 Sad news from Animal Care Lancaster – Bob has had to be put to sleep as his health had deteriorated in the past few weeks, and especially the past few days.

Tilly (RSPCA Danaher, Essex)

Pretty boy Pete! (Oldies Club Sponsor dog)

Here’s a treat for the collie lovers amongst us. Pete is a very pretty, gentle boy who came into rescue after the death of his owner. He is fine to be left for a few hours but would love a quiet, retired home where he will have company and can go for a few walks a day. He is good with dogs and cats and is simply a little star!

Boris (Cats Protection, Sussex)

5/2/15 – Sad news from Cats Protection: ‘This is to inform you that, very tragically, we lost dear old Boris yesterday unexpectedly to kidney failure. He started to go downhill very quickly and the inevitable decision had to be made to send him on his last journey to Rainbow Bridge. It is so sad to think that he was not fortunate enough to experience all the comforts a caring home environment can bring but at least he had many friends at the Adoption Centre and always used to look forward to mealtimes. May our dear old boy rest in peace. Thank you for featuring him on your website.’
