We are having one of our low days today when we are wondering whether we will ever find homes for our 3 longest stay dogs. So I’m, seeing if national RSPCA will put an alert out on Facebook as they are doing for our cat clinic, which is having surprisingly few takers.
Roma has been with us since November 2008, her owners were proseucted for neglecting her and she was very underweight when taken into our care. Roma has had two successful placements in foster care but is still waiting for that forever home because she has a condition called hip dysplasia which means she is on permament pain relief, needs to be kept on a strict diet to keep her weight controlled and only have short periods of exercise. Roma is approx 8 years old and the most loving, friendly dog you could wish to meet. She is fantastic with other dogs and a great all rounder. The branch is able to contribute to her ongoing veterinary care to see her placed in the best home to live out teh rest of her life.
Ben has been with us since March 2009. His owner was terminally ill and so could no longer care for his beloved dog. Ben is a lovely lad, approx 7-8 years old and is desperate for a home for life. He is medium sized cross breed and great with other animals and all people and is so playful and loving. He adores his toys and bounces around with them like a puppy. Ben would suit a home where someone is around a lot as he can be quite vocal.
Harley is our longest stay dog, having been with us exactly one year. Not one person has ever shown any interest in the handsome guy despite extensive efforts by the branch to find him a home. He is a tall staffie cross, a loveable, confident dog that is deseprate for a home. Although he was an unwanted pet following the birth of a child we have found him to be great with children. He is strong on the lead but that is just as much excitement too to be out of the kennels. We really love Harley and home someone else will very soon.
