Calm Kelly (Oldies Club Sponsor Dog)

12 September 2014: We very sadly had to say goodbye to sponsor dog Kelly :-( Her health has been deteriorating over the last few months and it was time to let her go. Our thoughts are with her foster family who are very upset and miss her dreadfully. They left a fitting tribute for Kelly saying they think Kelly did more for them than they did for her. Sleep tight lovely girl.

Beautiful Kelly is a 9 year old Lurcher girl who came into Oldies Club care back in December 2012, when her owner moved to rented accommodation and couldn’t take Kelly along.  She quickly stole the hearts of her foster family in Berkshire, with her loving, calm nature.  Initially it was hoped that a forever home would be found for Kelly, but as her health has deteriorated it has been decided that the best thing would be for her to stay with her foster family and become an Oldies Club sponsor dog.

Kelly will be looked after and loved in her foster home and will have a nice comfy bed to lounge on which will suit her very well as her arthritis has worsened latterly.

Kelly’s foster carer sums her up perfectly:-

“Kelly is a calm and loyal creature. She has stacks of personality although not the most energetic of dogs her expressions say more than a thousand words.  She has a heart of gold and has stolen ours.”

Many thanks to talented photographer, John, for volunteering his time to take these wonderful photos of Kelly for us


If you would love to offer a home to an oldie but your circumstances aren’t suitable, perhaps you would be kind enough to sponsor Kelly or one of the other special oldies we are caring for in our sponsor dog scheme.
