This poor dog was seen by members of the public being beaten in a street in what was described as a viscous assault. He was then tied to a lamp post and his owner ran off. The RSPCA were contacted the poor dog was rescued by an RSPCA Inspector. She described the dog as a loving and friendly elderly Staffordshire Bull Terrier and he is now in our care.
It is hoped that his owner can be traced and dealt with but in the meantime we are not looking for him a new home just yet. The RSPCA Inspector called him Frank as he is not microchipped. This is a very upsetting incident but he is safe with us now and being given lot’s of TLC.
Charlie is still waiting…
Despite many appeals Charlie is still with us after 6 months. He is such a cute, friendly boy with a cheeky playful nature and he is only 4 and a half years old so his age should not be a problem. Sadly, in many instances black cats get overlooked but Charlie is finding life in the cattery quite stressful now and needs to be in a new home.
He spends a lot of time outside his pen with the staff following them around but we really hope that someone will come along and give him a new home soon. For more information about Charlie or any of the other cats and kittens in our care, please ring Julie on 07712459857.
Update on the kittens found in a skip.
These little beauties are now 6 weeks old and they will be looking for new homes around the end of October. We have had a few scary times with them when they have had to be taken to the vets but they are now a bunch of healthy, playful, cheeky kittens. Our thanks must go to Julie Mac, our fosterer, who looked after them so well and got up in the night to feed them when they were very young. Her dedication has really paid off.
We have now taken in over 140 kittens this year so far, all of which have been looked after by our team of very dedicated fosterers. The RSPCA Inspectors always contact us about young kittens first because we have people to care for them in their own homes.
