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

Zabba (aka Frank the Beagle)

Posted in Success Stories | Comments Off
creature-comforts-2 I just wanted to send you an update on “Frank the Beagle”, seeing as it’s a year today that we adopted him and gave him his forever home.

He’s happy and extremely well looked after and we wouldn’t be without him now, even though he is so mischievous.

I compose Bespoke Poetry so as today is ”Zabba’s” “Forever Home Day”, I have written this for him and I would like to share it with you all along with a couple of photos…..

“Happy Forever Home Day”

You are our fur baby and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
It’s been a year today, since you came to stay.
We’re overjoyed you’ve found, your forever home.
Now we know, you’ll never feel alone.
When we adopted you, you were slim and your name was Frank,
Now you’re called Zabba and you’re built like a tank.
During your first few months here, you really put us to the test,
You were highly strung and we didn’t get much rest.
Now you’re completely different, it’s wonderful to see,
But you’re still as Bonkers as a Beagle could ever be.
You love to go for walkies, it does Mummy good too,
She’s much fitter now and that’s all thanks to you.
You love your rough and tough with Daddy, at the end of the day,
You bark and whinge at him, when you want him to play.
Your favourite toy’s your rope and you don’t like to share,
You hold onto it with your mouth as Daddy swings you through the air.
You love your creature comforts but you love ours more,
You steal Daddy’s place on the bed in a morning, as soon as he walks out the door.
Lie ins at weekend, have become a thing of the past,
Because you take up all the bed and we feel we’ve been outcast.
You really don’t like it, when the Postman calls,
We’re certain given half the chance, you’d have him by the b***s.
We always know, when the big Rottweilers are out,
You tear a**e round the house and have a right good shout.
You’re still a little destructive, especially with underwear,
If you carry on destroying Mum’s knickers, her a**e is gonna be bare.
You’re a little unsure of kids and tall men but with Alec and Daniel you’re okay,
You give them lots of doggy kisses every single day.
Even though you can be a pest, you make us laugh so much,
You bring joy to our lives, with your mischievous touch.
So because we don’t know when your Birthday is, we just want to say,
As it’s been a year, Happy Forever Home Day.

Hero (previously Wonky)

Posted in Branch News and Updates, Success Stories | Comments Off

Hero 2 Hero’s new family sent us a pm on facebook a few days ago and here is their news.

We just wanted to share an update with you on ‘Wonky’ who we rehomed. He is now called Hero, renamed by my son because he thinks he is a hero for what he’s been through.  My son also has a disability, so having a cat with a disability too is something he can relate to.

Hero is happy and well and settling into his forever home. He has a bit of separation anxiety which is to be expected. He just loves people so much! His favourite thing to do is to sit on our laps for cuddles.

He’s a beautiful cat with a really sweet temperament and gets on great with all the family.

We’re over the moon with him so we just wanted to write to say thank you for all your help in rehoming him with us and for all the vital work the RSPCA are doing.

Jemima (aka Dotty)

Posted in Success Stories | Comments Off

dottycatrehomed3 Jemima’s adopter sent an email to let us know how well this little cat who was called Dotty has settled into her new home.  She had been so badly beaten by youths that her leg had to be amputated.

“I wanted to let you know how chuffed I am with the progress that Dotty (now Jemima) has made since adopting her just last Saturday.  Given the terrible ordeals that she has been through recently, I was expecting her to find it extremely challenging to settle in to a new home but I was doing her a disservice. Wow! What a brilllant little cat she is .. so resilient and positive and good natured :0)

 Jemima had already adjusted to life as a tripod (tripawd) cat by the time I met her .. just over 3 weeks after her operation. She sees everything as an opportunity to be explored rather than an obstacle – the only thing she struggled with was cat litter – she’s definitely a Catsan lady!   She still needs to rest, and recuperate, but I am beyond happy to provide her with the stable and loving home that she needs.

leiarehomedwithmax8 A year on and Leia’s new family recently updated us on her progress along with news of her brother Max, who was also adopted from the branch.

“Hi. Just letting you know how LEiA is doing now we have had her a year. LEiA had no training from her previous owner and didn’t know how to play with a ball or toys. Max who we also adopted from you over two years ago has been great teaching LEiA and they love each other very much. We are so glad we adopted them both and wish I had more room to adopt more but unfortunately we don’t. I am sending you a couple of photos. Keep up the great work you all do.”
