Do you recognise this sweet lady?

She was found in the Tibshelf area last night in a heartbreaking condition.
We believe her to be an eldery lady that has been someones pet as she is very sweet and extremely talkative. She is not microchipped.
She looks to have severe dental conditions due to the way she is eating and has some infection around her bottom lip. Her left eye is ulcerated with awful wounds above the eye. She has lost the fur on her back legs we assume due her being very unsteady on them and has a very dirty bottom. She is also worryingly underweight. The full scale of her injuries and medical conditions have not yet been fully assessed but once we know more we will update.๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™

If you have any information please give us a call on 01246 455777 or 07872 421878. If you can't get through please leave us a voice mail or send a text.
Poppy, Lucy and Lady has a trip to Staveley Vets this week for vaccinations and health checks. This was actually Lady's third attempt to start vaccinations as at the previous appointments there was question mark if she might be pregnant. Lady was putting weight on at an astronomical rate. The conclusion is that Lady just likes her food!
Unfortunately, Lucy's health check revealed one of our worst nightmares.....BAD TEETH! Lucy needs some extreme dental treatment, possibly resulting in removing most of her teeth. The worst case scenario quote is ยฃ579.88. Poor Lucy's elderly owner passed away not so long ago and she was left in the house while it was being emptied around her. She's such a gentle soul. Lucy is believed to only be around 5yrs and it's unusual to have such bad teeth at this age.

Cases like Lucy's put a huge financial strain on the sanctuary.
Can you spare a few ยฃ's towards Lucy's care? Donations can be made securely through the link below. Add reference: Lucy's Dental treatment in the comments box so we know your donation is towards her care.
Shiver with his two new friends, Stanley who had got stuck alone near some steps in Sheffield and Andy from North Yorkshire whose rescuer witnessed his mum and siblings being run over by a large truck. The gentleman tried to get the truck to stop but was ignored with unforgivable fatal consequences for the mother and the rest of her brood.
Eddie (renamed Odi) has found his new family and we're so very excited for him. We can't wait to receive updates!๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก
