When her owner passed away suddenly, Little Suzie was left bereaved and home alone.. It’s difficult for any pet when their companion and carer is no longer there…. and then moving home, new people …. and moving on again …. and everything and everyone who is familiar has suddenly gone.
We were alerted to Little Suzie’s plight by Social Services. There were no relatives in the area but a kind neighbour took Suzie in although this was a temporary arrangement only. We get calls every day asking us to take unwanted pets in and wish we had room to take more. Priority is given to pets who are left on their own because of sudden illness, hospitalisation and bereavement and Little Suzie arrived yesterday.
You can register your pet with us for Lifetime Care. We have an Emergency Pet Care Card and it’s free so get in touch, we’ll send one out to you and be able to help in time of need.
As you can see from Little Suzie’s face, she was sad and in need of comfort. She is a sweet girl, around six or seven years old we think and very loving. She was just in time for lunch which she enjoyed and then lots of cuddles and a nice walk, she’s met everyone and had a big fuss made, she’s settling down well already.
None of us can know what the future holds, if we have pets the best we can do for them is to make provision fir them being left alone. We offer lifetime care and dogs and cats love it here with us. Sometimes younger pets can be found new homes but often the older ones or those that are shy and timid like to stay here with us – they love it here and don’t want to be re-homed!
They have a good life with freedom when they have become accustomed to life here. We never put any healthy pet to sleep and we’ve had many go on in to their twenties. Lillie and Frankie are two late teenage Llhasos, who are doing well in spite of their advanced age. Cristo, the Chinese Crested dog is a darling, he will stay here for the rest of his days – he freaks out at the merest suggestion of re-homing.
Hopefully, Little Suzie will soon get her confidence and tail wagging back. She is quite young still and is a very loving dog who will make a perfect companion. She’ll be going for a vet check and update on her vaccinations next week and hopefully there’ll be a good home waiting for her soon after.
