William (Chancepixies Animal Welfare, Kent)

Little William’s dad passed away and he’s now looking for an experienced and understanding adult-only home. He’s led an insular life and arrived in rescue very underweight so food is an issue with him. He loves his walks and deserves a happy, forever home. 5/9/19 – William is still waiting

Asha (Rescue Remedies, Surrey)

27/6/13 – Sad news from Rescue Remedies: ‘So sorry to have to tell you that Asha went to Rainbow Bridge today. Sadly he had a mass on his upper front leg and he was struggling to walk.
