A pic of 16 yo Nippa whom we helped this week as his Mum was struggling with life. Nippa is the happiest of boys now - and we have a small network of people checking on Nippa and Merle now - so fingers crossed we will be able to help in the future.

Rescued With Love shared Oscar's Law's photo.
Decades of work by Animal Advocates it has finally happened. The Puppy Farm Bill was passed in the Upper House in Victorian Parliament.
As from July 2018 it will be ILLEGAL to sell puppy and kittens in petshops and the puppy farmers will have serious limiting on their stock.

IT PASSED 😭😭😭 After hours of debate in the Upper House until midnight last night, then a resumption this morning at 9.30, the #PuppyFarmBill has officially JUST PASSED Victorian parliament! This means that as of July next year, it will be illegal to sell puppies & kittens in pet shops and for the first time ever, puppy factories will have a cap on them. It's going to smash their business model and help end cruelty in the state. We won't be stopping here. We need these laws across the whole country. But for now, let's celebrate this enormous win. It's been decades in the making - and it wouldn't have happened without you.

Doing a spot of gardening this morning and found these two sharing a bed - first time ever. Polly was gently washing Kizzy’s face, another first. Kizzy is a few months short of celebrating her 17th birthday - she’s tired. You can see it in her eyes - the way she ever so slowly walks around the house and garden. She struggles to jump on the couch like she used to - a helping hand is often needed. Kizzy still loves cuddles the most - food not so much - her days as a breeding dog, I think from her behaviour with food, would have been food thrown to her. If she was lucky enough to actually get any would have been a different story. Kizzy is so very gentle - she never retaliates if one of the others gets narky with her - she would have stood back in her previous life while the others ate. Polly’s remaining eyesight is failing - she often bumps into things around the house and is sleeping more than ever. She is in congestive heart failure and has fluid in her abdomen ... we are treating both as best we can. I wanted to video them but was transfixed at their gentleness with each other - I wanted to keep this moment and store it for myself as old age and ill health has caught up with them both. Kizzy and Polly are both Rescued With Love Foundation Dogs ~ since coming to Sean and I as fosters ~ their past lives of neglect, physical and mental abuse ~ saw them both stay in our home as permanent sanctuary dogs. Their medical bills are taken care of by generous sponsors and regular donors of RWL. Sean and I as volunteers take care of everything else they need. Kizzy and Polly are loved beyond measure ... they are a treasured part of our family 💕

SPECIAL NEEDS HOME FOR HORATIO.
I remember when I saw Horatio for the first time, matted and filthy and the shelter clipped him off. He was so distressed circling - deaf and almost blind. He had endured and I mean endured a life of abject neglect. So much so - his behaviour reflected it.
Often neglected dogs bounce back just happy to be loved - others are broken in spirit - and that is the hardest to deal with. To watch. To take on. To find a home for.
We have taken on many like Horatio. Some stay with us because once we have taken them - they are never sent back to the pound or where ever they came from. We might not even know they are so damaged - but find out after the fact. The stress is immense juggling dogs like this in care - you need a lot of courage and stamina to foster a dog like that.
But Horatio has survived, and in ways thrived. He goes outside to the toilet. But many times - doesn't come back in. His new parents will need to help him back inside.
He needs gentle pats, and hates being touched around the neck. That's not hard to do, little pats on the head are fine.
He startles easily because he is deaf, only has one eye and that has low vision. No one likes to be startled. For a frail little boy - its terrifying.
Sometimes all you need to do is set up what is best for little ones like Hori - and watch how he goes. If he slips around on his back legs, put some mats down. If he gets stuck outside, bring him inside. If he doesn't like pats - let him sit beside you in his bed.
This isn't rocket science. it is about listening and watching. And making choices. It is about care. Compassion. Selflessness.
I watch and hear and listen to so many of you - yes I do - and I read your comments on what you do with your babies. You get it. So I think yes - we can find a home for Hori - for a day a week a month a year. However long it takes. Whatever it takes.
Meanwhile he will stay with us - and hope his family finds him. Our feelers are out for him. He has us as guardians. We will do what is right. ... See MoreSee Less

Nippa had his surgery yesterday and came through with flying colours.
As we said - his Mum is in her 80's and had lost her brother and sister recently. Both her children have debilitating long term illness - as does Nippa's Mum.
Nippa is her best friend - and so we decided to help out.
Nippa is 16 years old. We had bloods done, and fluids while having a dental, a good clip and bath for his skin (sent home with some treatment) a flea and worm also, as well as a nail clip he so desperately needed.
Nippa's mum is incredibly grateful - having suffered such loss - she really needed help. We will try and keep an eye on Nippa and his Mum as much as we can.
So thank you to those who donated, and thank you to the Mt Eliza Vet Hospital who were outstanding.
Thank you to Netta and Sharon who organized things with Faye a friend who drove Nippa to the clinic.
We will post pics of Nippa after his groom when we get them, but here is the gorgeous boy before hand.

Very Very Special Needs.
Can you help us find a home for Horatio?
Please don't block the thread with I wish, if I was etc - thank you.
Horatio is elderly, and is a darling complicated soul. We know he needs his family or person - they are out there - they just need to find us.
So if you wouldn't mind please share. Lets do this as a team.
Thank you so much.
"Horatio has had it tough real tough. He desperately needs a very special person who would love to spend time comforting him and making him feel safe and loved. No more abuse, fear or starvation just gentle care and love. He’s good with other gentle dogs and is fine with cats too. He likes to wander around the yard and snuggle in his big soft bed. If you would like to learn more about Horatio please submit an application or send an enquiry and his carer will contact you to discuss him.

Behind the scenes.
Last week we were contacted by a lady who attended a funeral. The gentleman who passed away has a sister in her 80's who has a little dog. He is her world.
This lady has lost her brother and her sister in 12 months. Her daughters, both have serious illnesses and indeed this lady with the little dog - also has a life long condition that is debilitating.
With very little in life - she has been unable to keep up with the care of her little buddy. "Nippa" needs a serious dental, his nails trimmed and hasn't had a bath in a very long time.
We have organised for Nippa to go to a local vet we use - and have a dental, bloods, fluids, his very long nails trimmed, a bath if possible and anything else he might need, including a vaccination, flea and worm treatment.
And we are trying to figure out how we can continue to support Nippa and his Mum in a way that is useful and practical. It will be fluid....if that makes sense.
Anyway we know the bill is going to be close to $1000. And I am not going to ask you as supporters to dive into your pockets again. You have done enough.
So what I would like to do is offer you one of my pieces of art (yes in my spare time I am madly getting stuff ready for my first exhibition which is very exciting!)
"The Bridesmaids" is a pencil and spirit wash drawing on Arches paper and fully framed in Tasmanian Oak. The cost is $200. Size is 53.5 x 34 cms.
If you would like to buy the piece of art - I will ask you to donate the $200 into the RWL account. And I will organise for the piece to be available at Balwyn Vet Clinic or Diamond Creek Vet Clinic whichever is more convenient for you. (Melbourne people only, sorry)
I just thought it will help Nippa. And his Mum. And it's the right thing to do.
So if you would like to buy the pears - first one in first serve. Just say "Sold" and I will be in contact.

When you think the world has gone mad with the constant barrage of tragedy, hatred and loss - you have to remember the media loves to scare us, make us afraid and shock us.
But in reality there are more good than bad happenings in the world - you just never hear about them. They don't sell newspapers, or get a headline.
So here is a bit of good news - and I hope it outweighs the bad you will no doubt hear today.
I had a lovely message from a man called Stuart.
I have never met Stuart - he lives on the other side of the world. But he likes Rescued With Love and kindly sent me a message saying so - and that he too, has some special needs bubs.
I asked him to send me a pic of his little family and he did - with an explanation of each.
You see there are millions of people like Stuart, and the carers at RWL doing all sorts of things to care for those who need it. It just isn't news. It's life.
We don't watch the news at night. I never read a newspaper right through. I would rather be uninformed and listen to my heart and my head and lead a life that is more focused - and simpler - without the clutter of horror.
So thank you Stuart - I really love your message and photo. They look like they are in good hands. Bless you for your courage, conviction and compassion. I am humbled you contacted me. I wish you a very happy and safe Christmas period and a wonderful 2018.
NB: Here is what Stuart wrote about his bubs.
"I decided to send you one group picture of my "kids" so I wouldn't plug up messenger. Front row left is Peanut. Beside her is Abby. Back row left is little Honey and AhChu is on the right. AhChu was our 1st small dog rescue (we used to rescue OES but we are getting on in age and thought small would be aesier) He was 3 months old when we found him. Runt of the litter, very shy and 2 cherry eyes. No one would adopt him knowing the would have a Vet bill right off. Little Honey was our 1st "special needs". we found her when she was 10. She was deaf and had no teath. We found out when we got her that she also had CHF She is now 16 and still struggling. About the only thing working right on this old girl now is her appitite. She is still a happy little girl and the love of my life. The 2 Poms in front, we took from a backyard breeder. Took us 2 years to get them shut down. Peanut is now 6 and she was born with all sorts of birth defects. Her mother had distemper when she was carrying her. Abby is now 15. She has CHF and a multitude of other problems. They bred this poor old lady till she was 10." ... See MoreSee Less

Christine St JohnYep, we had to take our Maltese to the vet to get some teeth out. I never forget the look on his face when we picked him up. He just gave us dirty looks and glared at us all the way home.7 days ago
