Nala has just passed away in Mum Ruth's arms. The last few days she had deteriorated and it was her time. As always it is a joint decision, and Nala is now at peace.
Nala was found matted and filthy, staggering in a paddock, blind and deaf, emaciated and had been in the paddock for four days. Taken to a shelter - she came to us and has been with Mum Ruth who has given her absolutely everything she had been denied in her previous life.
There are days when saving a life is hard. Today is one of them, and Mum Ruth is hurting at the loss of this little soul. Please know the RWL girls will gather for Ruth and be there for her, it is what we do.
I think Nala waited a lifetime to come to Ruth - to be there for her when she needed her most. Light a candle for Nala, and for those like Ruth who take these babies in, and care for them, for they need our love and kindness as well.
Vale beautiful Nala. You had a name, a home, a mama. You were not alone when it mattered most. Rest easy honey. ... See MoreSee Less

1. We will always need Pounds for stray and lost animals to go into.
2. How they are treated while in those Pounds/Shelters is going to always be of great concern.
3. We will never stop people breeding pets. It is profitable.
4. We will never stop the massive population of stray cats breeding.
Awareness can assist point 3 and 4. and proactive legislation.
According to the figures from the Getting to Zero Conference we have a big problem.
"Australian research shows that 86% of dog intake is through strays, with a 46% reclaim rate."
" Stray cats made up 81% of the total cat intake with a dismal less than 1% being reclaimed. "
"This category of animals far outweighs those that are surrendered by owners and yet it is an area that has not been in the spotlight for discussion, research and development. It is imperative that we implement strategies targeting both stray and surrendered cats and dogs if we are to make any progress in this field."
I cannot believe in this day and age we are still discussing that can be done to assist these problems such as reclaiming, identifying and returning animals to owners.
While i know a huge percentage (it would be interesting to know how many) of animals will never be collected - we still must concentrate on those who CAN be reclaimed.
I am of course still waiting for the large organisations to put up their strays online to assist identification and reclaiming.
And still I wait.

Melinda McGrathEvery week in the small town i live in there are multiple dogs and cats being advertised and the most common reason is they are moving and cant take their family pet to their new rental home! It's horrible how many people do this and think its ok. We have lived all over Australia with our two dogs. We've not been able to rent some homes because of no dog policy, which is their right, but we've just found other homes that are pet friendly. Ive reached the point now where i feel that if you keep rehoming your family pet with no just cause, or fail to provide adequate care then you shouldnt be allowed to own a pet ever again. What dreadful unstable lives these poor little things are forced to endure. Makes my blood boil :-/3 days ago · 6

I want to tell you all about Eve. She is timid and doing it tough.
Eve is an Old English Sheepdog size girl. Big. Very Big. She is 4 years old, has dental disease and a slight mild heart murmur.
She loves children. She is terrified of doorways. She can chew on cords and stuff if she is distressed (so she can be - I hate this word - destructive). :(
Eve has been with RSPCA Qld since January. She has a lovely nature - but hasn't had a good start. The term gentle giant is coming to mind, also a stressed soul in a stressed environment. She is needing OUT as soon as possible and has been on the Rescue list for ages, but no one has been able to take her on.
I can picture Eve with a couple who know their calm home and constant guidelines will ease her fear. With another easy going bub who will help her relax. She is the kind of girl who will I bet in the right home flourish.
I would love to help Eve, sadly RWL is unable to at this stage. So would you mind sharing? All inquiries to go to RSPCA Qld.
Thank you lovely people. x ... See MoreSee Less
We all need something that relieves stress in our lives - mine is my small art business. It is supposed to be dog/rescue free. It has now become apparent that boundaries need to be drawn! I'm not sure how I am to do that because when I go to work in my studio - I have to drag in as many dog beds that will fit and land lock myself into position so I am left in peace to work. But I had to share today's break through.
Today was a first again for Ticket.
She put her front (and only) leg up on my chair and stared at me. I pushed my chair back and she turned around so I could lift her. She has sat on my lap (while the others stared in jealous/horror/shock/stinkeye) and surveyed my work (which I think is sold BTW - yippee)
So now you can see that dear little head bobbing around checking out my work up close. I hope it measured up Tick Too. :) ... See MoreSee Less

I wonder if there is a special Mummy or family who would care for a little old dog like a baby.
You see Superman is 14 years old. He is vision and hearing impaired, and has fistulas in his mouth from having rotten teeth removed. He sleeps most of the day - he LOVES his big soft bed.
He likes his food, and cuddles, but he is a very quiet reserved little boy who has never had much in life and so isn't overly demonstrative.
Adopters usually prefer a look, a tail wag, some kind of connection, with Superman, there isn't much. Personally due to the state he was in when he was collected as a stray, he probably was given very very little attention. For us - that is the worst kind of neglect. :(
Now as an older boy, he is like a little baby. Yes he has quality of life. He does not need to 'pass to the rainbow bridge'. We do not kill elderly reserved humans in aged care - why would you do it to a little boy who deserves compassion?
Superman doesn't need a walk. He doesn't need to go out and visit places or people. He needs his soft bed, good food, someone who knows when he needs a trit trot outside, and someone who would love a baby to care for.
It would be a gift - for him.
If we don't find anyone - he is safe and will stay with RWL as a Foundation dog. Please don't stress about that. But sometimes I feel the universe is telling me that if I tell Superman's story - the person who would like to care for him will come.
If you think Superman might be your man - fill out an adoption form at www.rescuedwithlove.org
Let's see where this takes us. You never know. :) ... See MoreSee Less

Meet Pearl. 2.2.kg, lots of fleas and matts, only a couple of rotten teeth left, and the dearest little patootie ever. I don't think Mum Megan is ever letting her out of her sight again!
Pearl is about 11 years old and hadn't had the best of times, but now she will be super loved and cared for!
We did her health check and booked her in for today for her dental and desexing and then started to shave her off and clean her up. It took a while to get the matts off her legs, they were pretty spectacular, but we did and her little legs are now free.
She had a trit trot around and then into the bath which she absolutely hated - by that stage she had probably just had enough. Wrapped in a towel there was no fur to dry off, she was put in her soft little t-shirt and taken home for some loving.
It is only onwards and upwards for little Pearl now - a RWL special for sure. Here are some of her pics from yesterday - and yes we are in love! ... See MoreSee Less

In 2008, another rescuer and I drove to Sydney. We stayed with a Sydney Rescuer at her home overnight because she had 5 little souls who need safety - and at 4 am the next morning we drove back with the little five, curled up happy and asleep. We stopped on the way at various places, ate junk food and coffee in the car and took turns driving. It was a long rewarding two days. When we got home, we had carers waiting - and they all picked up their new bubbies - and so started the lives of the Sydney Five.
Over the years they have had great lives, and we have heard of their passings, and yesterday I received an email from Foster Mum Bridie who worked with RWL for many years. That day, long ago, she picked up a tiny little Malt boy whose name was Jack Happy. He had a really terrible and very serious heart murmur. We thought, he won't have long, and Bridie fell in love and the rest as they say is history.
Over the years I got gorgeous updates of the Jack Happy, but yesterday Bridie let me know he had passed away, very gently after kidney and heart issues. He had survived and surpassed all expectations. He was her special soul, and her family are deeply saddened at his passing.
I had a picture many years ago of the five looking over the back seat, Sophie, Birdie, Jack Happy and two others i cannot for the life of me remember. Many computers later, I can't find the pic, other than in my mind.
These babies all came from Sydney Pounds. Blacktown was one I remember. It was a long time ago and things were grass roots and not as organised or open as they are now. I am glad to know these five, and many others made it out due to those people who worked hard to improve conditions that many rescuers now enjoy.
Dear little Jack Happy, I am so glad you came, you had a wonderful life, and I am so sorry it was your time. My love to your family, you were so utterly special. I will light a candle for you later today, and remember the part you played for others who came after you - and were saved.

Rescued With Love shared Balanced Animal Spiritual Therapy's post.
"Watchman" is a 2 yo Maremma. He has had three homes and is currently in RSPCA Lonsdale Sth. Australia.
Maremmas are working dogs. They are not pets for inside. They guard livestock and are happy to live with them. They require a special home that understands their needs and often aloof around humans, or if bonded with one, look for instructions.
Denying these beauties their basic instincts and trying to keep them as companion animals like so many are suited to is extremely difficult for them. Some other breeds adapt, these lovelies - not so much.
So you know the kind of home he will need. Acreage. Livestock to protect. A working farm. Understanding owner. Good fencing and willingness to train him.
Can you please share and help Watchman? Thank you. All inquiries to RSPCA Lonsdale. ... See MoreSee Less
Animal~Lovers ... Meet 'Watchman' <3 >> UPDATE: WATCHMAN HAS BEEN ADOPTED <3 Do you know someone familiar with Maremma breed of dogs? I have found an unexpected guest at the RSPCA Lonsdale SA today and am extremely keen to share his photo in hope of finding a breed knowledgeable foster home or a property-owning new family for him. RSPCA are on the search too but I have one of these beautiful souls at home and know just how much work, love and time this boy needs to grow and learn.. he has already had 3 homes and is under 2 years of age. Maremma are quite remarkable companions and working dogs in need of understanding and patience. A residential home situation isn't ideal, this boy needs space to keep watch and roam. Can you help share Watchman??

A couple of months ago I was pretty upset when a family surrendered their little dog called Sade. I subsequently gave the family a social media lashing. Not my finest moment - and I regret it (and own it yes)
The reason? Well perhaps I didn't understand the whole story but it came as a surprise that Sade was in Kidney Failure when I arrived at the vets. Still the RWL carers stepped up and more than once cooked this little soul food that would have tempted most - I can assure you. :)
Happily Sade was with us for a few weeks and she gained a little weight and around 6 weeks ago she went to live with a gorgeous family, who knew she would be there not for a long time, but a good time. She was with Ava - another little one of ours who has kidney failure and the family took these babies into their homes and heart - no matter the odds.
Sadly Sade passed on Good Friday of kidney failure.
Our thoughts are with her family and we say thank you for giving her a gift of being there when she needed someone the most. From the moment we took Sade in, no one was about to let her down - and I am proud to say she was support and cared for beautifully.
RWL in cases like this find we have 'an extended family' when we take and adopt dogs like Sade. We stay in contact. We don't charge an adoption fee knowing what the new family face - even if we have spent thousands. It is one of the truly remarkable parts of RWL - that the people who come into our world do the most incredible and amazing things. Good things.
So we will light a candle for little Sade today, and for her family who were there until the end. She went on her own time, and for that I am so eternally grateful. Vale little Sade - you were a very special little sparkle. My love to her RWL family carers, Kate, Luke and Jane. x ... See MoreSee Less

I thought it was about time I have you an update on little Essie. Aka Smuglet. or Smugs. :)
Smugs came to us from RSPCA NSW with another little dog Belle who got adopted. Essie had a torn cruciate and dislocated patella. Ex-rays showed she had had a dislocated hip and untreated, had grown another hip socket I just can't imagine her pain and suffering.
Not only has she had a bit of a physical challenge - Essie has suffered from lack of kindness - which lends us to the name of 'the snapper'. We wear a spectacular mask in the bath and while being groomed - only around her back legs :) Fair enough.
And when a pair of male shoes walk past, or get a little close, Smugs gives them a hearty smile, swears profusely, and nails them with her 6 teeth she has left. Believe me, she is extremely accurate - just as the 6 out of 9 guests at our dinner table on Christmas Day. :)
Having said that - I have seen her grow and trust me and I absolutely adore her. She follows me everywhere. She loves rolls on the bed. I can pick her up and cuddle her and pop her on the floor - all the time getting her growl on. :) She is obedient and sweet with me (husband well - not so much - he is scared of her, and she likes to get up his nose) but most of all she is incredibly happy.
Recently when she had the spine issue and heart issue and I thought I might lose her - I was deeply upset. She needs more time I felt to make up for previous treatment. Someone was listening. Even though she has had faints at night, i will pick her up and cuddle her, change her bedding and stay with her until she growls at Clementine (head Queen and Smug's nemesis) then I know she is okay. :)
She doesn't like to share her bed, and she likes to play with Baby Girl (Whimsy) and boss her out of her bed. Baby Girl growls like a tiger and stalks, all 1.8 kgs of her over to her mama who picks her up and Smugs hops straight into her vacated bed. It's hilarious. A game between the two has been going on for a while now. They play their parts parts to perfection.
Today Smuglet (dressed as Miss Hawaii) tried the 'get out of bed game with Romy Bom Star) who was having none of it. She danced, shimmied, scuffed, barked and did the two step - Romy sat firm. She was staying in that bed thank you.
Smuglet still has her eye on the bed - but I will let you know Smugs - NOT TODAY! ... See MoreSee Less

Sereena DaysOver my many years of being a dog groomer, when it comes to infected ears of any kind, one of the most helpful things you can do is clip the hair very short on the ears to enable better air flow. Helps in healing and also helps to keep ear gremlins at bay.2 weeks ago · 2

Nala has gained weight and is up to 5 kgs. A super effort by Mum Ruth. She hasn't wagged her tail yet, and there is a way to go - just time will help her - and you know we will do our best. ... See MoreSee Less

Nala is progressing very slowly. She is now able to feed herself with her bowl on legs helping her. No more syringe feeding for now. :) She is eating chicken mince and enjoying that - so we are doing tiny steps as always - and she will have a weigh in on Satruday - here is hoping she has gained some weight. ...

Celeste is looking for her forever family! A word from Celeste’s Foster Home: Sweet Celeste has been wonderful from the moment we brought her home. We have never known such a happy dog - her tail has not stopped wagging, and it wiggles her whole body! Straight away she bonded with our dogs. She gives our big Rottweiler kisses every morning and he adores her in return, and she plays with our Labrador when she's not snoozing with them. They are all fed together and never had any issues. She is a really affectionate girl who loves human company and cuddles. She's been great with guests coming over too, so calm and friendly. She is very eager to please and will sit, drop and heel on walks with the right pack leader. Celeste enjoys watching the word go by through the fence, and is quite content to be outside by herself as long as she has visual stimulation. She's a good watchdog. She really has a heart of gold and we hope she can find the happy forever home she deserves." A word from SADS: Save-A-Dog Scheme is delighted with the successful integration of 'Celeste' into her foster home. We are now looking for permanent adoption where she will have equally experienced pack leadership and probably a large male companion so she can feel secure knowing her place in the pack. If you think Celeste may just be the one for you, please call Margie on 0418 389 810 between 9-5 any day (please don’t text).
