Meet one of our resident studs, Spud. He's been at the Refuge around 6 months now and we seriously can't work out why he hasn't found a home yet. He is such a cuddly and friendly boy who will make a very loyal companion for someone who will commit to his training.

Seppy's Story

Seppy is a Maltese X Jack Russell and is about four-years-old. He is a very special little man who, like so many others, arrived at the Home in a very thin neglected state and had just about given up on the human race. On top of all that he was also in a great deal of pain with two complicated hernias that needed specialist surgery to repair at a cost of over $2,000.

Snug is desperate for love!

Posted by Karen Rhodes on 19 July 2009 | 0 Comments

Tags: ,

Snug was brought to the Home by rangers over a week ago. She is about 12-years-old and her back legs are very stiff and sore so she isn't very agile. Snug was underweight and very timid when she arrived. Our staff have shown her much love and with gentle encouragement she is slowly gaining confidence and a little weight each day.

Seniors deserve our respect

Posted by Karen Rhodes on 21 June 2009 | 3 Comments

It's so sad to see so many older dogs ending up at the home. Recently we've taken in a record number of mature dogs that are clearly bewildered as to why they are with us - and to be honest so are we. Surely they deserve to be spoilt at this time of their life and whilst we do our best to make them feel as comfortable as possible in their new surrounds they really do deserve to be in a loving home.
