Kasha (NAWT, Berkshire)

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. :(

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.

Super Scamp (Oldies Club, fostered Plymouth)

3/11/09 Sadly poor Scamp has been suffering from dementia recently and has had to be put to sleep. He had a wonderful loving home, as you can see from his rehoming story here on the website. He will be greatly missed by his family. Sleep tight Scamp.

Marley (DAWG Dogs, Dorset)

17/11/2010 We’ve had the sad news from DAWG Dogs today that poor Marley had to be put to sleep. He had started having fits and showed no signs of improvement. He was lucky to have enjoyed two good years with his fosterer. Sleep tight Marley :(

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.
