Title: Animals In Need Summer Newsletter 2009
Date Posted: 22nd November 2009 00:00:00
Description: Dear Friends,

This newsletter is a tribute to our wonderful supporters for all the kindness you have shown to the
animals in our care. Thank you for rising to the challenge each time we appeal to you. Your generosity has allowed us to help the most vulnerable animals like little Cuddles, Roger, Amy the kitten and many more, the list is endless. We have now established the ‘Cuddles Fund’. This fund will be ongoing to continue to pay vet bills for sick and injured animals. Our recent additions are Grace, a gentle grey Staffordshire Terrier and Luther a handsome black greyhound. Grace had a badly dislocated hip and the staff at the PDSA informed us of her plight. The RSPCA were unable to fund her treatment and this lovely little dog was to be put to sleep. But thanks to the ‘Cuddles Funds’ she is on the road to recovery. We also used the fund to help Luther, who had a serious tail injury and Dolly, a stray who needed a urgent eye operation. She was found heavily pregnant & starving in Huyton, but sadly only 2 of her pups survived.
Thanks to your kindness these lovely, worthy animals are alive and well today.
Kanga was one of 4 kittens born 12 weeks ago. The prettiest of the litter (see below), and the sweetest nature. Although she was born disabled, with under developed front paws, she has learnt to adapt to her disability and uses her back legs to ‘bunny hop’ , hence her name Kanga –Roo. She is just like any other kitten and has exactly the same quality of life. She now needs a loving home. Kanga would make an ideal pet, as she would be able to have the freedom of the garden and wouldn’t be able to escape.
We know times are very hard which makes us especially grateful to those that support us. We welcome any new ways to fund the Sanctuary, contact us if you can help.
Rocky Update—Sadly after almost 6mths Rocky is still in police custody. We think of this lovely boy everyday and are desperate to have him returned to his owner. We still assist the police and recently took a dog called Tito who was also seized as a Pit Bull Terrier, but after 9 months they decided he wasn’t one! Tito was about to be destroyed but thankfully this funny, friendly dog is now enjoying life at our
Sanctuary and will soon find a loving home. (Picture of Tito with shades above!)
There is so much to tell you and so little space, but we do like to keep our friends informed.
WE COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU

Kind Regards
Fran Ellis for the Trustees, Caroline Cassidy and all at the Sanctuary
