Animal Success Stories

GEORGE

GEORGE

George was rescued by an RSPCA Inspector as he had an injured leg after a suspected collision with a car.  He was taken straight to a vet where he underwent X-rays followed by an operation to put pins into his broken leg.  George then needed at least four weeks of cage rest to let the leg heal, so was transferred into our care where we could provide this.  Unfortunately after a total of six weeks cage rest it was found that the pins were not taking and therefore causing a lot of discomfort for George.  The vet decided that it was in Georges best interest to have the leg amputated, so he underwent another operation. He was then a lot happier as he was no longer in pain, and recovered from his operation well.  George was adopted a month later and is now very much loved by his forever family.


TABITHA & WILFRED

TABITHA & WILFRED

Poor Tabitha and Wilfred were found at the bottom of somebodies garden in a tiny, dirty hutch with no food, water or bedding.  They were living in their own excrement and were very underweight.  Tabitha and Wilfred came into our care where they were given a full health check and then fed up to a suitable weight.  As favourites amongst staff members, Tabitha and Wilfred stayed in one of our rabbit lodges at the centre for over six months until we found that special home they had been waiting for.  They now live a very happy, fulfilled life with plenty of space to hop, skip and jump!


RICO

RICO

Inspectors witness some distressing scenes on a day to day basis, but nothing could prepare the Inspector that found Rico for what he saw.  It was touch and go for Rico when he had to spend two weeks on a drip at the vets because his organs had begun to fail through emaciation.  He then had to spend a further four weeks recovering and gaining weight and strength.  Remarkably he made a full recovery and was re-homed by ourselves.  He now leads a wonderful life with his new family and couldn't be happier.


EVIE

EVIE

Evie, a one year old Lurcher was sadly abandoned at the shelter in November 2012.  She was literally thrown over the shelter gates causing superficial wounds and a lot of stress.  Evie was very timid and nervous at first but soon started to trust the Animal Care Assistants who provided her with all of the care and veterinary treatment she needed.  Despite having been treated in the way she was; Evie had such a kind, gentle nature and was soon re-homed.  She is now living a life of luxury with all of the care and love she deserves.
