Little laid-back Lucy (Oldies Club, fostered Tyne & Wear)

8/10/12 We are very sad to update with the news that little Lucy became very unwell at the weekend. She saw the emergency vet, and scans revealed that she had tumours on her kidneys, liver and windpipe. There was no hope for Lucy and the kindest thing was to let her go. Our thoughts are with Lucy’s dedicated foster carer who has cared for Lucy so very well.

Scampie (Bath Cats & Dogs Home)

30/5/2012 Sad news about long-stay boy Scampie – he was put to sleep on Monday. He had been struggling to breathe and had collapsed over the weekend. It was considered it was kindest to put him to sleep. He will be missed very much.

Pepsi (Ark, Lincolnshire coast)


13/11/10
Sad news about Pepsi — She had to be put to sleep, on the vet’s advice. Following tests and several different treatments, all to no avail, her digestive problems have got the better of her. She had chronic diarrhoea and was passing blood, losing weight and was anaemic. The vet had run out of options for her.
Rest in peace Pepsi.

Wag (Oldies Club, fostered Hertfordshire)

18/9/10 We are very sad to report that Wag suddenly became very ill and after having tests and a scan was found to have an enlarged liver, a mass in his stomach, and a problem with one of his kidneys. The vet advised that there was no hope of improvement and as Wag was not at all well, he sadly had to be put to sleep. Rest in peace little Wag.

Alfie (Lizzie’s Barn Animal Sanctuary, South Wales)

20/6/10 – After the good news of Alfie finding a new home, we have some very sad news. Yesterday afternoon, Alfie was out pottering in the sunshine in the sanctuary garden when he suddenly collapsed and died. Fionna was with him and couldn’t do anything to save him. They suspect the poor little man had a massive heart attack.

The Sanctuary people are absolutely devastated, as are the wonderful family who were due to be homechecked for him today and hoping to bring him home next weekend.

Sleep well, little one.

Sally (NAWT, Berkshire)

30/7/09 Sally was taken seriously ill yesterday and sadly had to be put to sleep. She had been with NAWT a long time and will be sadly missed.

Bruno, Bath Cats & Dogs Home

03/01/2009 We have heard the sad news today that Bruno has passed away. Here is what his walker at Bath Cats & Dogs Home had to say:

Just to inform you about Bruno, the Corgi cross from Bath Cats and Dogs Home. I was his walker for the last 5 years. Bruno was taken ill very suddenly and passed away on the last day of 2009.

It was a great shock to myself and his only other walker. Bruno has been buried inthe home’s cemetery and his grave will be cared for by me.

Sleep tight old boy.
