Welcome little Ginge.
Ginge has been with me (Netta) for over a week now, and I’m so sorry with lots going on at the moment, I haven’t given her the proper welcome she deserves.
Ginge is a little 14 yr old sweet, and special little darling. My first meeting with her though, I was a little teary, worried I might be dealing with severe anxiety and snappiness. Worried about her future. Worried about worst case scenarios – who could manage her (sorry my mind often goes into worst case scenario mode).
I met her at the vet after the beautiful Irene and Wayne picked her up at the pound for me. They let me know she had a freak out being picked up and stressed out the whole way in the car non stop vocalising.
At the vet, she was friendly, tail wagging and initiating pats, but still so very, very stressed. She was a good girl for the groomer Kelly (who she loved). Kelly tidied her up in anticipation for surgery (once she had surgery she wouldn’t be able to have a bath for 2 weeks and it was fair to say, she was suffering some nasty pound pong).
But back inside the vet for a consult, she had meltdown when picked up squealing and snapping, we did need to pull out the party hat, just while she was checked over, she was very worried about being touched under her tummy and back end, and the entire time there, she barked. In the room with us, being patted it didn’t matter, she just kept barking.
She needed to overnight at the vets and regardless of whether she was in a bed next to someone while they worked, or not, she still barked. Bork, bork, bork, bork….. non-stop. That’s unusual, they will usually settle down at least with someone there and we were worried this behaviour might continue once we got her home. They ordered in meds, in anticipation, they expected she was going to need them.
Normally the dogs go straight off to the carers home after the vet, but I felt in this case I needed to bring her home here, to assess her, rather than place her straight with another carer. If she did have separation anxiety, and was not ok with being picked up, there were things we’d need to put in place and not everyone is set up for that. I wanted to see what she was like at home, see what she needed, to work out a plan for the worst-case scenario and if needed find someone that could deal with anxiety and ensure cases of needing to be picked up were minimal, while we worked on desensitizing her.
Out at the car I wanted to see if she would jump up into the car rather than stressing her with being picked up again and she did. She followed me into the car, jumping up into the stairwell then up onto the seat. OK, so no need to pick her up there, we got home, she jumped out of the car met the gang, she was a little tentative, but no problem, she would scoot off if anyone want near her back end but no reactions. She spent a couple of nervous hours pacing, inside, outside, around the yard, in again, out again but at least not vocal, and finally settling into a bed, where she crashed, sleeping most of the time for two days (this can often happen after a dog comes out of a pound, exhausted).
We spent the week getting to know each other. She doesn’t like home cooked meals much, doesn’t like dry food and prefers cheap and nasty tinned food – yuk, but ok we’ll start off with that, she is a little shy, she ducks her head when you go to pat her, but her eyes go soft as she melts under your pats. She looooves pats. Our plan was no picking up, no putting on harnesses or pushing anything she didn’t like, to let her feel safe and secure first.
Day 3 a calm settled little girl rolled on her back and let me rub her tummy, she scoffed her junky canned food with some of my home cooking mixed in and she was absolutely fine while we left her alone for a couple of hours (being closely monitored by a home camera), no separation anxiety and have left her for a day since then, still fine.
By the end of the week, I’m picking her up, constantly, she is calm, settled and the sweetest, sweetest little ganoush you could ever meet!!!! I haven’t heard a single sound out of her and not a single sign of any snappiness. She doesn’t love her feet being touched, or having a harness put on, but she will let me do it while looking at me with an indignant look and trying to pull them away. It looks like we were just dealing with a case of serious fear, lack of handling and “I hate vets!!!”. Although on her second visit, besides being vocal again, she was a well-behaved little lady in every other way. She’s now ready to go off to foster care with Aunty Robyn.
She is resting after her big surgery, her teeth were so rotten, they were wobbling in her mouth, most of them had to come out. Her poor little mouth must have been so sore. She has been desexed, thank goodness she came to us when she did as she had Cystic endometrial hyperplasia (pre pyometra), leaving things any longer could have been life threatening, and two little mammary nodules, both more common issues for dogs that have never been desexed. The lumps were only small and have been removed and sent off for testing. Fingers crossed results come back ok, because all I wish for her now, is to live the pain free happy life she deserves. She is such a sweet little girl.
Welcome darling Ginge xx ...
Bless you for caring
Ginge is in good care. 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
Hello beautiful girl. Xxxxx
Adorable little girl. Hope she feels so much better now.
You are a wonderful human being, I wish there were so many more like you.
Ginge is now at the very best place she can be, fear is such a horrible thing when you cannot explain to them what is going on, at least she settled quite quickly bless her. Xx
Poor little darling ❤️
Hopefully things go well from here as she deserves a wonderful, comfortable life.
Wonderful to see that she is settling down.xx
Welcome sweet little Ginge. 💋❤️💋
Poor little Ginge. At least she is going to be better than she was from now on.💖🐶
Such a cutie!❤️
A very big and loving welcome to you, Ginge ... it'll be okay ... 💖💖💖💖
Good night sweet Ginger!
Welcome sweet pea.💕💕💕
What a beauty ♥️
Thank goodness for you guys and thanks Netta for the update
And that's how things are done at a "proper" rescue 💖
She is a sweetie, wishing her to find a loving forever home”Thank you Rescued With ❤️ for saving her.
Been through so much. Hopefully things are looking up 🙏

Let's celebrate Australia.
What do you LOVE about Australia?
Post your pictures!
Football, meat pies, Kangaroos and Holden cars? 🙂
Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, Johnny Farnham and Errol Flynn?
Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Brissie, Alice Springs or Darwin?
Who is your football team? who is your favourite sportsman or woman? Ash Barty? Cathy Freeman? Ian Thorpe? Herb Elliot?
Name three kinds of Aussie food you love. Pav, Pav and pav? 🙂
Best beaches? Nature walks? National treasures?
What do you love about our sense of Humour? Dame Edna Everage? Paul Hogan? Kath 'n Kym?
We are all aware of the sensitivities around today. But we can all still celebrate what we love. Our Country.
I am, you are, we are Australian. ...
It’s a beautiful beautiful country ... with awesome awesome beaches 😉.....
Our wildlife is what I love, which is why our lack of action on climate change is particularly distressing.
I was one of the lucky ones who got to migrate here in 1974, have been here for 45 years. I love the kindness of most people.
I love everything about Australia. I love our pride for our nation, the support we give each other, the beautiful wildlife, our amazing beaches, StKilda footy club, the slang, bbq’s! We are a very lucky country, and I thank my grandparents for immigrating from England in the sixties to make this there home. Most of all I love my family big little furry, feathered and scaly, that makes our family complete!
Australia Day at our place. My husband with one of last year’s winners of our Thong Tossing Competition with the trophy.
And all things Aussie. Spotted this little one not far from our place in 2019. ❤️🐨❤️🐨
I love Australians for their ability to laugh at themselves. And mateship. 🐨💖
I love that we're global cousins ... all the best on your special day from your Northern cousin, eh? 😉😊😉
Love the resiliency and optimism! My family is in Brisbane. I miss them dearly. 💕
All of the above!❤️🇦🇺
You just have to take a walk and see beauty especially here in Cairns.
Might get the old girl out for Aussie Day
Never been , unfortunately, but I love the way they talk , "Gud daay maate! " Beaut ..😁
I LOVE KOALAS the most What I dislike the most are Politicians ,That being said Enjoy and Celebrate, Happy Australia Day
The very special and unique animals ❤️
It's uniqueness in the evolutionary scheme of life.
Australia's: people (well some) nature, bushland, coasts: beaches & rivers, deserts, animals, birds, country towns and cities!😊👍
As a migrant to this wonderful Country many years ago I have had a fantastic life here, met my husband in 1965, got married in 1966 and we have two great adult children and 4 beautiful grandsons. We’re still together after almost 54 years and I appreciate every opportunity I have received here, and the freedom.👍💜💜
I just love this country my parents came from England to work hard for us kids here and I was born in Wollongong NSW!..now I live in Qld!
I am a true blue Aussie!..
Everything . Except our politicians.
poor ol' Tazzy ,knocked of the map again .
Love this country, everything we have here is wonderful. I enjoy the little things in life. I love all the animals. One thing I don't like is pollies.
This is a follow on post from the previous one. Please read the other one first if you can - it will make more sense that way. x
I might as well come clean on another little dog I dealt with RSPCA Vic - and I stayed quiet about it. Most of the RWL girls don't even know.
Because I want you to know what happened with this little dog - and I will shut up after that. Cathartic perhaps. I'm not looking at getting back at anyone - just how incredibly sad, and heartbroken I feel, and felt with this happened.
Before Christmas a little dog (a perfect RWL candidate) had her photo pasted on social media. She was being held by RSPCA Epping. Pic below.
I contacted CEO Liz Walker, we have a good rapport and she said she would look into the little dog and I was passed onto her staff. All good there.
I told Liz RWL would like to take her on - surrendered or whatever - we really would love to take her on. I made that absolutely clear.
Later i was told the owner was contacted and was coming in to collect her the following day.
I asked that the dog be seized under POCTA.
Note: often owners of neglected pets will be told they will be charged with cruelty - but if they willingly give up the pet - i.e. surrender him/her then that will be the end of the matter.
This is important to understand. An owner has rights to own the pet. They will be held responsible IF they do not surrender the pet. Or if they do - it is easier for the pet, and the governing body ie RSPCA in this case - to care for the animal - and make sure no other animals are in the care of the neglectful owner.
Back to the story. I was told she wasn't going to be seized but the Inspectorate had been notified.
I asked if the little dog needed our help (RWL) a groom, special meds, anything - and was told the dog was getting a clip off, which did happen, I was told.
The dog was handed back to the owner - and the Inspectorate were alerted to check on the dog to make sure she was being cared for in the coming weeks.
I asked if treatment and medication was provided for the little dog. None was provided.
Liz rang me and she was tired after a long day. I was insistent I wanted the little dog - and at least to help the owner. She asked me not to be too hard on the owner as they had had problems. I said okay. Liz was fair, I was going to try and be as fair as her. It was kind of her to call me, and I really appreciated it.
For days after, I wanted to help this little dog pictured. She had been picked up and was in a hair's breath of being treated and cared for by me. I could not see the issue of seizing this little dog - knowing she would otherwise go back to a home where she had clearly had long term neglect.
I felt the RSPCA had placed more emphasis on the human being - than on the very little at risk dog - their client.
I know the little dog could have been seized. I know the owner probably wouldn't have been able to fight it, and probably would have surrendered the little dog.
And I knew she would have been loved and cared for by one of our girls, if not me.
I felt not only the RSPCA let that little dog down, I did too. I didn't raise a fuss, post anything on social media - but I really did want to help that dog. I asked a friend in a position to maybe find out where the owner was - to offer treatment for the little dog - so I could watch over her. But that came up empty.
And so I wonder a month or so down the track if that little dog is alive. Or if she is living in a yard with not much to go on.
I did contact the Liz again who forwarded me onto the right department in RSPCA and was told the case was now officially 'closed'. Whatever that means.
It makes me wonder - how many other dogs/cats/animals are almost helped. Almost. Because here was a case of a little dog who COULD have so easily been helped. I would have had some of my sadly lacking faith restored. Maybe.
Instead I feel a fool for trying. For begging. For trying again, 15 years of trying again, to help a little dog I could help. I can't help a suffering horse, or a cat with kittens, or a large bouncy mastiff, or indeed a traumatized greyhound like Dash. But i could have helped her.
If I had been told she was going into care with a foster mum in RSPCA I would have said good job.
But this was not a good job. The system failed her. The protocols failed her. The policies failed her. And perhaps I should have held it over the Liz's head that I would post this and make them look bad so they would feel pressure and not give the dog back to the owner - but I hate that kind of thing. And yes I have done it to save a life, but it shouldn't need to be done.
I don't think Liz will work with me again. More heartbreak - and I hope she understands how miserable I am after constantly going through this process when it isn't even necessary. She's a good gal. And I hope I was when I was on my game.
But today - as I said that has passed. I realize nothing I do will ever change anything.
I'm off to light a candle for this little girl. ...
Thank you from heart you I admire so much for all you do
I despise the RSPCA , I would never ever support them or take an animal to them
I despise the RSPCA for their treatment of animals , I will never again support them or take an animal to them 🤬🤬🤬🤬. I have had one too many encounters with this organization
Hard to read. Sorry but bugger the humans - we allow people to use "problems" as the excuse for neglect, cruelty or plain "who cares" way to many times. Poor little dog.
Very very sad 😭
I have been hearing really bad things about the RSPCA why do we contribute to the RSPCA if they don’t Look after animals 😡😡
So so sad 😥
Heart breaking 😪
Rspca RSPCA will not have my support in the future
OMG. That poor little baby. My heart breaks for these fur babies but we know that there are so many more who are living such a sad existence. I just wish we could save them all. 😥
No support for RSPCA
Don't give up! You are doing an amazing job. We need you to keep chipping away to bring awareness to this broken system. A couple of steps forward and one back every now and then but you are getting there.
So sad 😢
Devastating heartbreak just in the picture alone....... praying that maybe just maybe the owners saw light and she is once again being loved. She must have once as she has a lovely little pink name tag. So heartbreaking knowing something could have been done.
Sincerely hope this little one got help. Thanx so much for caring
Absolutely heartbreaking how honesty could you let an animal go back to someone who lets it get into that condition it’s appalling 😡
It’s not good enough. The only good RSPCA are Qld. Forget the rest and don’t get me started on the cat breeder in NSW I mentioned to you a few years back 😡😡😡😡😡
Oooh crying just looking at her💔😢
We need more Kae's, one person cannot change an organisation. We read, we feel upset then we turn away and get on with our lives leaving the problem to one person. That's why RSPCA and Lost Dogs Home continue killing when there is no need. Thank you Kae I remember this little one we all wanted to save xo
How frustrating for you and you only want to help these poor fur babies.Sorry they could have done a lot more !!!!
But you have made a difference you are opening the eyes up of us who don’t fully understand what is happening, so thank you from me and I too will light a candle for the poor darling and for others past and present x
He is just amazing!! 😀

Mork’s vet assessment found the normal old age issues: mature cataracts, low grade heart murmur, bacterial skin infection and a large lump on his ankle.
A fine needle aspiration was taken and sent to the lab, unfortunately this came back with a vague diagnosis. And vague diagnosis are not what we like!
So off to Dr Chris Franklin and Mork was whisked into surgery for a full surgical biopsy - we should have results back in 7 days.
Here’s the lovely little man himself! On a chilly Melbourne morning foster Mum Jo has made sure the Mork man is warm and toasty while he recovers. Note the matching blue bandage! 🤕 💙 ...
Poor Mork. I thought he was wearing socks.
love u little man (& Momma Jo) xx
Rest up, sweetheart 💖 Love your denim vest. xox
Big hugs Mork xxxx
Mork, I hope everything starts to improve soon. Have lots of sleeps until then. Hugs darling
Omg Joe Ishow his name is Mork!! 😍😍😍
He’s so lovely. Just needs to find his Mindy!
All the best Mork!
Praying for Mork!
Poor wee man . At least he will live out his life in a lovely warm home and feel loved at last
Hoping for a great result for this little cutie.
Mork you beautiful little man,wishing you lots of love,and a positive recovery love you darling ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Mike we must think good thoughts . Love and prayers to you little nan

Velvet is having surgery today to remove her eye and a much needed dental. Her blood results showed she was already desexed which is great news, one less procedure for our beautiful girl to go through.
We know from previous experience with eye removal surgeries on our RWL bubs that Velvet will bounce back much happier and pain free.
Everyone who meets this utterly divine little lady is completely smitten, how could you not be 💕 ...
What a sweetie pie!!!
Good Luck Velvet baby girl praying for you.
Best wishes little girl!
Goodluck you little sweet

Hey sweetie ,how nice of you to help mom,hope you have a great day God bless you both!
I have a lovely little dog who does that 🐕🐕
Sorry, this seat's taken!!
Flip and Polo have settled in beautifully. They are just the most delightful little pair ever. They're happy, friendly, easy going little darlings.
They're having a dental on Thursday and then these two beautiful boys will be looking for their forever family.
The boys are both 12 years old, a Poodle x and Maltese x
They’re the sweetest little gents, perfect on their leads, great with other dogs, hardly bark, sleep through the night... a few indoor puddles, so still need a little work there, but they're starting to get the hang of it.
They have lived together all their lives and we will only be looking for a home where they will stay together.

I desperately want these boys, have recently lost my 2 16 year olds, one a poodle cross, other chi/Pom. Can't live without dogs. Have only found out about RWL from a friend and I have no idea how to fill out an adoption request.
I know in my heart you guys will find the best of homes for them they deserve that xx 😘
Love these little chaps
Beautiful fur babies 💕
Happy little chaps 🐾💕
All the best sweethearts xx
I hope that the right family comes along that can take these long time buddies. 💕
You have to kick those pillows off.
Beautiful boys, they deserve a loving forever home in their twilight years, bless them... ❤️❤️
Here at RWL we have a couple of wonderful foundation girls who love to throw their handbags around - namely the ever prickly cactus (aka Smugs/Essie)! followed closely by our little low growler, Polly.
Polly has always loved to take the occasional nibble; not being fussy on who the unlucky recipient is. Prior to her multitude of medical issues, Polly could hear the gate latch open before you had chance to beat her to the front door. Many a time the postie was warned to “please ring the doorbell before entering”! Did he listen? Nah....
Kae has ways of handling her prickly cactus Essie, just as we have ways of keeping our fingers intact with the grumpy Miss Polly Waffle.
It’s all about who is the fastest in both our homes.
Kae vs Essie
Sharon vs Polly
Seriously, you gotta love their feisty
That’s a big growl for a little munchkin.
Loving the one up one down ears, and that low rumble, oooh! ❤️
Miss Waffle that was naughty.
I have a growler: she kept on being returned to Animal Aid because of it. 3rd time lucky here. Never bitten anyone. Bless you lovelies for doing what you do, whilst maintaining a sense of humour!
You have to love them. 😂❤️😂❤️😂
Sharon aren't you doing the housework the right way, is that what pretty Polly is commenting on? 😄😄
She’s such a wag. Love it
Bless their little paws.
Polly Waffle you really shouldn't tell tales on Mummy, lol
So tough 😂😂
Oh sweetheart I would giggle every time I hear your growl x
Gorgeous little fur baby ❤❤❤❤
John Jenkins this is the coloured flooring I love. What do you think?
My first meeting with the beautiful Remi was a hearty little bite hey Michele 🥴
Waffle on Polly 😂😂😂 such a tough girl 💪🥰
Precious little one♡♡♡♡
Bwahaha hilarious 😂 love it! Sassy gurl🐾
Buckley.... Got him from 'owners who don't have time for him'. 'm he hated EVERYONE, but men and children in particular. Now he tolerates most men, his bestie is a huge beast of a man we are friends with. He adores kids, too. Had a few nibbles of us over the first year or so, but never since. And still poops inside, even though he has free access to outside 🤣
Dear little souls
good morning - happy Monday with much <3
Good morning cutie
Hi there beautiful xx

Isn't he the cutest? 😍
Our lovely vet Dylan and his team from Heidelberg Vet Clinic wanted to contribute to the work we are doing sending items to animals in need.
Not only did he source and send the Veterinary load from last week - he also has financed us in getting much needed bird seed to the birds on Kangaroo Island.
The fires are still burning - and have been since 20 December. 48% of Kangaroo Island is burnt - and therefore the birds have nothing to eat.
Along with our gorgeous friends Kym and Necia on the ground - around $800 worth of bird seed will be heading to the birdlife on Kangaroo Island.
We love our RWL Community the willingness to help and work together.
Please let us know if you hear of anyone else who needs help with animals - we will always try to do our best.
Thank you to Dylan and his team, and Necia and Kym and all of the lovely people who are making such a huge difference and caring for our wildlife, our birds, our animals and our country's future. xx ...
Everything needs help in these horrid times. Great to see everyone helping our wildlife.
I am so glad your helping our wildlife, thank you.
You are just fabulous people
Thank you ❤
Thank you Dylan and everybody involved 💖
Well done !!!! 👏
So good! Thank you Shared
Are you still taking donations for the pets & wildlife affected by the bushfires?
Heroic! True special humans.
Your all good heros
Great help good on him!😊
Wonderful people it restores my faith in mankind.
You guys do an amazing job.
United we stand 👏
Thank you for the rescue and everyone involved 😊
Thank you & God bless you all. ❤
What wonderful caring people there are in the world still. Thank you
Well done...thank you
Ex RWL girl Zoe passed away this morning. We always feel it so keenly as we welcome these babies into our lives and homes like they are our own, and we mourn them when they pass.
We know Zoe has had a wonderful life with her family - and we are for that, eternally grateful. But losing a little one has it's own special pain and grief, and so we send Mum Trish and family all our love at this incredibly sad time.
We will light a candle for Zoe today. Vale darling girl. ...
RIP little one 🕯
RIP Zoe ♥️
Sorry for your loss xx
Have fun in heaven
So sorry and a gorgeous lass but so happy her life at the end was surrounded by love xxx
Fly free over the Rainbow Bridge pretty Zoe 💞🐾 Vale
I’m so sorry

RIP little one.x
Go run in that big paddock in the sky forever young. Sympathies to Trish and family and the RWL family.
Sending special thoughts to Mum Trish and thank you for all the oive you gave Zoe so she would know what LOVE really is❤ So sorry for your loss of little Zoe
RIP Beautiful girl Zoe,my sincere condolences to Trish and all RWL families!💐💐💔💔💔💔
Thank you for rescuing this little cutie and to the family who cared for her until the end. RIP dear Zoe 🐶💕
So sorry. RIP Zoe
Sending lots of love 💕
So much has happened in the last 24 hours with Ticket - so here we go.
Her ultrasound showed no liver disease at all. YAY. We are over the moon. However she was quite dehydrated and so it was recommended she head to an emergency clinic overnight for fluids.
I picked her up in the late afternoon and she was pretty well still sedated from the ultrasound and drove her to the clinic - and the meeting with the intake vet and hoped for the best all would be okay......
The upshot of her ultrasound among other things showed no heart murmur and her kidneys looked okay too (no cancer or growths etc) - so the meaning of this was - we take her off her heart medication including the Frusemide which we thought might have something to do with her being so dehydrated......
I rang in the evening about 9 pm and Tix wasn't coming round. She was struggling to come out of the sedation and had been placed on oxygen in the tent.
I rang at 1.45 am and she was marginal - they were worrying about her - and so was I at this stage.
I rang again at 7 am and she had turned the corner as was brighter - so I waited for the day Vet to call me. Tix had eaten and was much brighter - and I could pick her up and bring her home. She is currently on her bed, watching me incase I leave (the first time we haven't had a night together in 3 years and 4 months) and I am going to let her rest.
The upshot is - we don't know if the Frusemide has affected her diagnosis of kidney disease - but it seems she could be in early stages. So in a week or so we will go and check her again. Thinking I was going to lose her soon, it's been a bit of a ride after Wix, so I am grateful she is still here with me.
Go Tix. Mama and Dad love you. x ...
Bless you beautiful Ticket ❤️🐶
Thinking of you all
So glad to hear she doing a bit better
Hopefully all goes well
Amazing. Certainly a roller coaster ride with dear Tix.
Ohhh wow the worry about her must be terrible for you. She’s such a cutie. X
Feel better soon, Ticket!! You're a sweetheart and you deserve to be well, again!!
Feel better soon sweetie
Bless this little girl. She is an absolute doll. So happy she is still with you. Sweet Tix Cx ❤🙏💔
Stay strong little one. 🐾🙏🐾
Oh poor baby I am praying for her speedy recovery,and hugs for you as I know how worried you are for your sweet baby Hope both of you have a great weekend ,hugs and kisses
Scary just reading that. Come on Tix. Feel better soon
Prayers for all of you.
May the lord guide u abd heal u Ticket in jesus name amen.
We all love you Tix, keep fighting 💖💖💖
Tixy prayers answered hope for better news later in week.
Tongue out, like my Cappy. So precious.
Sweet little Ticket, sending you and mummy and daddy love and hugs
So happy she's still here & so far things are good. go Ticket.
The utterly divine Flip and Polo joined us this week. Two little boys that have spent their lives together and will be rehomed together.
They are not quite ready for adoption yet, but will be soon, so watch this space - (please, no applications yet, we'll let you know what they need when we're ready).
They are sublime divine boys and so glad we could be there for them xx ...

Too cute !!
Yesterday it was confirmed Ticket has kidney failure. She is also having an ultrasound today on her liver as we suspect there is something nasty going on there also due to her blood results.
Cricket sent Ticket to me three years and four months ago and I have healed and loved in that time.
We will update you when we know more. ...
Ticket, you dear little mite. Stay close to Mumma and give her lots of love. xo
Poor Ticket. I have loved that little face from the first time I saw RWL. I do so hope something can be done to help her and make her feel better.
Sweet Ticket Cx 🙏❤
Good Luck baby girl praying for you.
So sad😢sending lots of hugs
Dear little soul
Prayers for your baby

Prayers for this beautiful little fur baby ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
Welcome little Velvet. All groomed and ready for her surgery on Monday thanks to lovely Foster Mum Ruth who has done a great job.
Velvet is in need of a dental and an eye removal - so this will be attended to on Monday - and we are awaiting bloods to see if she is entire (no tattoo, but we can't tell without bloods) If it comes back she is undesexed we will have to book her in again, when she has recovered from her dental and eye surgery.
She has Flea Allergy which we are treating, and infected ears, also treating - and mild luxating patellas which need to be monitored but are not causing any issues at all. She is the most sublime divine little girl - and age 9 years has the happiness of a three year old.
Velvet is only tiny around 4 kgs - and the sweetest soul - we are so glad she is with us. Go Velvet. x ...
