Not nutty, Nutty (Oldies Club, fostered Northants)

We are so sorry to have to update with the sad news that, after a short illness, Nutty deteriorated dramatically, to the point where she had to be put to sleep to save her any suffering. Our thoughts are with Nutty’s lovely foster carer who had taken such good care of our special girl since she came into the Oldies Club rescue. Sleep tight little Nutty.

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.

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.

Ben (Furry Friends Animal Rescue, Surrey)

25/4/12 – Sad news from Furry Friends today – ‘Sadly we had to have Ben put to sleep this morning. A home had been offered but they are on holiday at the moment. Unfortunately it just wasn’t meant to be. :(‘ Sleep tight little Ben.

Arthur (Foal Farm, Biggin Hill, Kent)

19/4/2012 A very sad update from Foal Farm .. Arthur’s health has been deteriorating recently and after suffering two fits Foal Farm decided it was time to let him go. He was put to sleep at the kennels, surrounded by everyone he knew and loved, and eating his favourite food, roast chicken. Sleep tight Arthur :(

Joey (Animal Care, Lancaster)

18/12/11 We’ve heard the very sad news that Joey’s seizures increased to the point that they were happening constantly and so the sad decision was made to let him go. Sleep tight Joey. :(

Jakey (Animals in Need, Northamptonshire)

4/1/14 – Sad news from Animals in Need: I’m sorry to inform you, sadly Jakey passed away about 3 weeks ago. Unfortunately he developed a tumor on his heart and we had to have him put to sleep. Thankfully he spent his last months living in our on site mobile home with a member of staff so at least had some home comforts and companionship before he left us. Run free, Jakey.

Nelson (RSPCA Lincoln)

19/9/11 – We have just had the sad news that Nelson had a massive stroke this week and, under vet advice, he was PTS. Nelson had just been reserved by someone interested in rehoming him but sadly he didn’t make it:( Sleep tight, Nelson.

Gypsy (Dogs Trust, West Calder)

28/7/2011 A sad update from Dogs Trust … Our poor wee Gypsy passed away in her sleep last week and the vet explained that it was natural causes and old age. She is very sadly missed by staff and volunteers alike, but was a happy, cheeky little girl right to the end and had adapted well to living here and being waited on by her carers. Sleep tight little one :(

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.

Matthew (Maxicare Dog Rehoming, Northamptonshire)

3/5/12 Very sad news today from a Maxicare volunteer: “Handsome Matthew passed away today in the arms of Maxicare Staff who were his family and his friends. He was fighting cancer but unexpectedly took a turn for the worse. So devastating as he spent almost his whole life with them. Run Free” :(

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.
