02/10/15. was a heart breaking day for the sanctuary residents. My dear dog Suki suddenly had a seizure and after rushing immediately to a specialist vets unfortunately did not make the journey.I would like to share her story and show just how much these wonderful animals give us.
Suki came into the sanctuary at the age of two after being used and abused by a hare courser. No one could get near to her as she was so terrified and would cower at the ...back of her kennel. She would slip her lead and run the two miles back to her previous owner, I guess she didn't know what else to do.A week or so later she escaped yet again but this time found me and went straight onto her back in submission. We bonded immediately and she would be at my ankle every second of the day, even for toilet breaks!
This was eight years ago and she hasn't left my side since. She would come everywhere with me and would love to come on car journeys, do stalls with me and faithfully wait for my return if I had to leave her.
She has been my faithful friend through good and bad times always there for me. She was my best friend and will never ever be forgotten.
Thank you to everyone that attended our open day. We raised an amazing £1850 thanks to all of our supporters. The weather was fantastic and the yard was very, very busy with people eating cakes, visiting the stalls and fussing our many animals. A huge thanks to all volunteers that put time into helping get ready for the open day. Thank you to all that donated items towards the day and a huge thanks to all that set up standing orders and dropped off much needed cat food. We could not continue without all of your support. Thank you.
We have recently rescued 42 guinea pigs that were left to breed out of control. Most were malnourished and most females are pregnant. All are looking for loving homes.
Leo's future was uncertain as he has one eye and is 22 years old. This sweet little chap has now found a loving home. We rescued him from the same place that the guinea pigs came from along with three cockerels and a rabbit.
