Blue (Stray Dogs Sanctuary, Devon)

3/4/18 – Blue went to a new home a few days ago. Stray Dogs Sanctuary have been told that Blue is settling in well, and the other elderly staffy in the home loves him and keeps licking him! Happy days now Blue.

Mozzie (RSPCA Cornwall Branch)

2/2/18 – We are delighted to hear that Mozzie has been rehomed today! RSPCA Cornwall told us: “Some great news Mozzie the lab x has been rehomed today! We wish him every success in his new home. Thank you for all your help in the rehoming of Mozzie.”

Simon (RSPCA Cornwall Branch)

27/11/17 – We are delighted to hear that, just as the weather is about to turn wintery, smiling Simon has left kennels and moved to his fabulous new home! He has a very large garden to enjoy, and his new owners are retired and will have lots of time to spend with him. Wonderful news!

Ruff (Pound Puppy Rescue, Dorset)

19/9/2017 Lovely Ruff has been rehomed thanks to an enquiry that came through the Oldies Club. He has gone to a lovely family in Wales where he has joined another Oldies Club veteran, a 13yr old Lurcher. What a perfect ending.

Nero (Bath Cats and Dogs Home)

7/3/19 – Absolutely brilliant news for Nero – he has found a new home at last! He gave a thank-you card to the people at Bath Cats & Dogs Home, and he left some treats and toys for the other dogs there. How lovely!

Kasha (NAWT, Berkshire)

1/9/16 – Sad news, Kasha had to be put to sleep as she was losing the battle against cancer which had spread quickly into her back legs and hip.

Shaun (Bath Cats and Dogs Home)

25/11/2014 Sad news, little Shaun has passed away – his arthritis had deteriorated over the past 8 weeks. It was hoped it would ease but it just kept getting worse and he was in a lot of pain.

Elvis, the King, not a Hound Dog (Oldies Club, fostered Somerset)

8/3/14 We are so sad to have to update with the news that Elvis’s pain from his back could no longer be controlled and he has had to be put to sleep to prevent him suffering. He had proved himself to be a very special old chap and his foster carers are so upset to have lost him. Our thoughts are with them.

Ben (Stray Dogs Sanctuary, kenneled Devon)

16/5/13 – We just had this sad news about Ben: ‘I’m afraid I have sad news about Ben. He has been on two courses of antibiotics for an infection, but they have not worked ,so the vet has carried out further tests and found that he has bone cancer, so has decided that the kindest thing to do is to put Ben to sleep.’

Curly Blue – Rapunzel Rottie (Oldies Club, fostered Plymouth)

18/2/12 We are extremely sad to report that after a short period of serious illness, Blue has sadly passed away. He had tests and scans that were inconclusive but the vet was certain that Blue had a hard to detect form of cancer. This news is especially devastating as Blue had recently had a wonderful home offer and we were all looking forward to him finally going to a permanent home. Our thoughts are with his adopter-to-be and, of course, with his wonderful foster family who loved Blue so very much and would have kept him if only their garden had been easier for Blue to manage.

Sleep tight Curly Blue – we will never forget you, special boy. :(
