This beautiful black and white, female kitty has been found straying in Springhead. Her finder has take her to Ian McConnell’s veterinary practice today. Sadly, she doesn’t have a microchip or collar and could have traveled a long way. She is in good health and will stay at the vets at least until tomorrow when she will be transferred to the cattery the branch uses if we have room and kept for 7 days before being advertised for adoption.
UPDATE – She has been found to be pregnant and is being taken to one of our brilliant volunteer fosterers where, unless she is claimed in the next week, she will have her kittens and all will be found new homes.
We’ve had an update from one of our Malamute x puppy adopters and they’ve sent some lovely photos.
They say, “He’s an absolute star, although taking him for walks takes ages as we’re always being stopped by other dog walkers, wanting to know everything about him. His big sister Lelia is finally accepting his presence, although it took her a couple of weeks.
Thanks again, for your help, but more importantly, thanks to you and all the other volunteers for all the effort and kindness you showed to our puppy. I know he didn’t have the greatest start in life, but with your help, Kosi is turning into a very handsome and healthy young chap.”
Wonky is a 5 year old Collie who has come into our care through no fault of his own. This young man just loves to be with people and is good with other dogs. He does pull a little on the lead but enjoys a good walk.
He is not particularly ball orientated but he has only just come in so we are hoping his playful side will soon come out.
Davina and Tutsy were adopted recently and their new family sent us an email and photos. They were lucky to find their forever family together and have certainly got their paws on the table.
This is what their family say “Just thought you’d like to know that Diva and Tuts have been as good as gold today and are settling in really well. We are SO happy and so are they. Here’s a couple of photos. If it’s appropriate you could let the previous owners know that they have landed on their feet and will be truly cherished.”
Winston’s owner sent us an update about how well he’s settled in and enjoying the first year of his new happy life.
“I adopted Winston in February 17……………He is an amazing addition to the household….. Loves me and follows me all over the house. He brings endless happiness & the odd scratch. Drops on the floor for morning belly rubs and he likes a chase”.
This little fun loving dog was called Tiny. He’s celebrating 4 years of his new life with his forever family.
“Zabba aka Frank, adopted just over 3 years ago. He’s a member of the family now.”
Here is Buddy sending us news from his holiday home at the New Year. Celebrating 6 months of a happy new life.
We’ve had some lovely photos of the dogs who are enjoying the season with their adoptive families.
Here are a few:
Izzy one of the 9 malamutes at 9 weeks and look how beautiful she is now in her element of the snow
Tsa Tsa another of our 9 Malamute cross puppies sent us some lovely Christmas photos. Well her family did.
This beautiful grey girl was previously called Shadow and she was the second smallest puppy of the litter. She was quite ill when she first arrived and had to spend a couple days in hospital but just look at her now.
As you can see she has found a new family of a rescued husky and a little rescued black and white kitty.
Freja’s adopters recently sent us and email to tell us how well she is doing along with some photos. As you can see see Freja, who was the tiniest of our 9 malamute cross puppies, has grown into a stunningly beautiful girl.
Buddy found his new forever family who have also taken Sandy as a long term foster dog. Their new people emailed a couple of photos to let us know just how well they are getting on.
We wish them all the very best for a future which is looking bright.
We love to hear how our adopted dogs are getting on! Harris’s family sent an email:
A year ago we rehomed Harris so thought we should get in touch with an update.
What a difference a year makes! When we adopted Harris he had been half starved, had little or no training and some clear emotional issues. However with time, patience and a lot of love he has turned into an awesome bundle of joy. He’s not perfect (who is?!?!) but we adore him. He now loves nothing more than heading onto the fells for a run around or playing with his ball, followed by treats and lots of cuddles.
He is a wonderful addition to the family & we’re glad every day that we found him
Buddy, who is 16 weeks old and a lurcher, who probably has Saluki, Greyhound and ??? in his make up. This little boy came to the branch to find a new home due to his previous owner’s ill-health. He is a typical puppy, up to mischief and longing to play with everyone and everything.
He is doing really well with his house training and now his vaccinations are complete he is finding out all about the big wide world and meeting new dogs in his foster home.
Please see pumpkin’s poster. He is a much missed little boy.
