Success Stories

From time to time we received updates about animals that have been adopted from the branch. We share those here. See details on the right for how to send us updates.

Pirate – (was Wilbur) one year on

Posted in Branch News and Updates, Success Stories | Comments Off
btrhdr Pirate’s family recently sent a first “adoptiversary” update and this is what they said: “We absolutely adore him and we are so grateful that we have him. He has brought us a lot of happiness and fun over the past year.”

We have included a photograph of him when he first came to the RSPCA and had a bath to rid him of the fleas.  The red water is in fact the blood from the flea dirt on his skin.

We can’t thank his family enough for giving this boy such a wonderful life.

mia-in-her-new-home Mia’s new family recently sent us an update : Hi just a quick update on Mia who I adopted a couple of weeks ago.  She has settled in very well and enjoys snuggling up with me every night.

Bert – and his amazing recovery

Posted in Branch News and Updates, Success Stories, The dark side of the work of the RSPCA | Comments Off

One of the RSPCA’s Inspectors brought Bert, who is about 12 years of age, to the branch to find the urgent care he desperately needed.    One of our brilliant, volunteer foster families agreed to take him into their home to try their very best to help him recover from his appalling neglect.

This lovely boy was quite literally a walking skeleton when he arrived, with pressure sores from lying on concrete, and was in a collapsed state finding it very difficult to even stand up to eat and drink………..but just look at him now!

He is still under the care of one of our local veterinary practices and, now he has put on enough weight, he will have a much needed dental operation.   Until the huge build up of  plaque is removed we won’t know just how many teeth will have to be extracted.

Handsome Bert will be staying with his foster carers forever as they have asked to adopt him officially once he has recovered from operation.

If you could foster for the branch and help animals like Bert to recover from their previous neglect please contact us.   You should live in the branch area so that you will have full support.

Orso and Lupo

Orso and Lupo Orso and Lupo’s family recently sent the branch a lovely update on their two kitties who were called Joe and Jake when they were seeking their own special family back in 2014.

These two lovely boys are really lucky black cats who have found themselves their forever home.

A huge thank you to their adopters and to all those lovely people who take in our rescued cats.

Here’s their original post

Jack – 6 years on

Posted in Success Stories | Comments Off

Jack at home Great news from Jack’s family.

In 2012 my husband and I adopted Jack a crossbreed, from Manchester. Our contact was Gail. We used to live in near the boarding kennels the branch used and would regularly see volunteers in the area and they were always interested in how Jack was getting on.

We have now moved to the seaside and I wanted to tell you that Jack is still enjoying his comfortable life with us but now he is enjoying runs on the beach and paddling in the sea. He has lovely walks in the local park mixing with other dogs.

So thanks to you all for carrying on looking out for and taking care of animals in need.

Kosi update

Posted in Branch News and Updates, Success Stories | Comments Off
kosi-compare 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.”

Harris

harris-1

harris-2 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

Marvin
