Primrose is safe. It has been a long and difficult time and more happened behind the scenes. We will explain more as we go along – but Primmie has had surgery and is in recovery. She is now at home in foster care and is doing well.

The only thing we can say is “it should not be this hard to save a life.” Ever.

Updates will come over the next few days.

Rescued With Love

Lack of respect for Saving a life.
Lack of respect, cooperation, understanding, blocking and difficulty to do our job, that’s what we faced.

On the 1st of January a little dog was impounded from Frankston Council to the Lost Dogs Home. It was noted she has a massive inguinal hernia. The LDH ran more tests and found she also had multiple bladder stones and it was thought she also had life threatening pyometra, an infected uterus.

She was not microchipped – and so by law belonged to Frankston Council. A call was made from the LDH to FCC – and it was a choice by FCC of euthanasia or treatment for the dog. Specialist treatment. Later that day I received a call from Frankston Council asking if I would be able to help the dog. The Specialist Centre needed a deposit of $2000 from Council – because they had dealt with other councils before and had been burned.

Speaking to two Frankston Council Staff members I was told they would not pay for the dog. It was “rate payers money”. Rescued With Love immediately rang the Hospital, paid the $2,000 and the dog was delivered by the LDH for treatment. FCC also made us provide a written statement to them, that we would pay the entire bill for this dog.

The following morning, I rang the specialist to see how the little dog was doing. I was told I was to be given no information. I rang the woman I was dealing with at Council, and she said if I needed to know anything she would let me know. I was deeply concerned by this. I did not know the status of the dog, nor how ill it was, if it needed emergency surgery and if RWL was expected to pay for this. I explained the situation to FCC who we had sent a written statement to accept the cost of this dog but was flatly told I was not going to be given any information.

Rescued With Love was built to help help animals. And often people. We are invested in the care. I asked if it could have a photo of the dog. No. I then asked if I could go in and visit the dog. No. After two days of information being held back from RWL – I lost my temper when I was put on speaker phone by the woman at Frankston Council, where she had a number of other staff including a legal representative present. I asked what was the “legal” reason I was not able to visit the dog. I was told I would upset her. Tired, miserable, and sick of bureaucratic nonsense, I laughed in their faces. It was a low point for me, and sarcasm flew from my mouth.

What really upset me was here was Frankston City Council staff – who had happily accepted $2000 of your donated money with an expectation of possibly thousands more, because they wouldn’t pay with ‘rate payers’ money stopping the very Charity Organisation from doing its job.

I kept thinking – how would anyone who lived in Frankston Council area feel – if they knew their rates were not being used to save lives. That Frankston Council does not value companion animals. That Frankston Council would rather euthanise than pay to save a life. Have we not fought for this kind of attitude to change? Societal exceptions say we should be humane, and compassionate. Frankston City Council was having none of it.

The weekend rolled by. Nothing. Monday morning came with an update from Council that the dog was stable. No pyometra. Whether by accident or by change of mind, the woman at Council sent me an email with all of the medical information she told me I could not have, that I had asked for three days previous. The hernia was severe. Her bowel, uterus, intestine and spleen had all fallen through the inguinal canal.

The woman at Council told me “the dog is in good health”. That was when I stopped railing against such stupidity and let Council do what they wanted. They couldn’t tell me if she was on pain relief (I’m not a vet she said) whether she was on antibiotics, or what would happen if the dog went into decline.

As her due date approached – the LDH and RWL didn’t know what was going to happen. The dog was held at the Hospital until her impound time and ownership by Council finished. No owner came forward.

Still I was not allowed to call and ask how she was at the hospital, staff had been given strict instructions not to speak to me. These are people we have dealt with for almost a decade and you can imagine how they felt having to say to me, we can’t tell you anything Kae. Knowing we have always had such a great relationship with them – it was hard. The focus had to be on the long game. For the dog.

I wrote a letter to the Mayor of Frankston, who passed it on to the CEO. He wrote a nice letter to me, but stated he supported his staff. No surprises there.

On the day her impound finished, “Primrose” was transferred back to the Lost Dogs Home. We had paid $2000 for a dog we had not seen, not sure what bills may follow and been banned from any medical information, banned from any contact with hospital staff, banned from visiting.

Thanks to Frankston City Council.

I guess you want to know what happened next…………

My God Kae, this is outrageous 😡 What can we do to assist.. Is this baby safe yet? Xxx

I can feel my blood pressure rising. I don't know how you deal with these people.

OMG this is outrageous hope that poor baby is ok

Report em to the rspca

Oh my! Cx

Where is this little girl now? I hope she is in your care. Cx

Absolutely appalling behaviour Frankston council😡😡🤬🤬🤬🤬

Beyond outrageous... this is criminal. Can we help?

Disgusting behavior when you are just trying to save her life.

Keep at them

Typical of councils. Hope all goes well

I am appalled. Anything we can do as supporters/the public? This little one needs a good chance of life. No more bs.

How close is LDH involved? Are they working with you or are they part of the brick wall?

Omgosh. That poor baby.

Oh please tell us.......

Fuck that just made me so angry reading that, absolutely disrespect from FCC, what is more degrading is the fact that FCC would waste money on staff on any given day of the week totalling thousands of dollars wasting ratepayers money even showing up to work, yet they say no to this and then give you the run around, its a very weak and low down act by Frankston City Council, thank goodness for RWL, your help and love of what you do deserves to be recognised,

What a terrible situation for you when your only trying to help a distressed little dog...absolutely madness and bureaucratic nonsense...councils these days have lost the plot and have become dictators instead of being there for the community..Gosh I hope she’s doing ok now?

What a disgrace. How do they sleep at night? Poor sweet angel 😘

What kind of people are they?

How awful. The poor little dog. 😢

Can we do anything en mass to Frankston council? Write to media etc? Why has this not been picked up by News TV?

what happened next? i live in frankston council area, and am happy to write off my stern complaints. it's disgusting how councils behave, on almost every issue, but it's more frustrating and dangerous when lives are involved. is the dog OK - with RWL?

Gary Petersen

Poor little mite ....hope hes OK and you can get through the red tape

This is appalling , but not surprising . Councils are full of dim-witted , non-thinking, rule following robots that find it hard to look beyond their little insignificant lots in life . You guys do such a great job , time and time again and make such a difference in so many dogs lives . I’m glad you have told this story & made us aware of how terribly you have been treated by FCC. Please let us know how this poor little soul is when you have an update xx

Our lovely new boy Potter, is having his vet work today. After his intake vet assessment and blood results, all looks good for things to go ahead now, so he'll have a dental and be desexed. He does have one large testicle, which we'll have checked out to make sure it's nothing of concern.
In the meantime our lovely boy was welcomed very excitedly by his fur foster sisters, who loooove having such a handsome boy in the house 😍

It's six months since MacIntosh came into our lives. The difference in him is a joy to see! He is a good boy, that wants to be close to you. He loves being taught and especially likes the treats that come with that. He knows some words and pops his ears up when anyone is talking about him.

Gosh I hope those jackets don't make them overheat, I know they need the coats because of their skin.

It’s so wonderful to hear the story of these pups living a brilliant life, after you rescued them from such suffering. 😍💛🙏🏼

Aw. Are these guys from the Longwood Raid? I have a little boy from there and helped rehome about 5 others from there. I have one coming to board with me for a week. I'm wondering if they'll recognise each other.

Shhhhh MacIntosh is resting.

Our darling miracle boy, is still searching for just the right home.

Are you home most of the time, can you imagine a happy loving boy, excitedly bringing you a toy, following you around the yard, watching with such interest everything single thing you do. Learning new things that you teach him, and knowing you have done the most amazing thing for a dear soul who's life has been turned around.

We've had some beautiful people contact us, but the circumstances just haven't been quite right for our special boy.

Mac is active, busy (remember he's border collie x - so working dog active) and so, so happy in the comfort of his home, with his people. He loves/needs his brisk walks and to be kept physically and mentally stimulated.

He is still wary of strangers, new people and new dogs but when he is with his people, those he knows, he is the happiest, boy ever!

He has amazed everyone, considering his condition, and his baseline before his surgery that he is such a clever boy and loves to show off new things he is learning.

Mac is still looking for that special, special home with someone who is home most of the time as a very spoilt only child, where he will be your shadow, your best friend and love to be a part of everything you do.

Mac needs time to build trust, and gentle understanding person who will go slow with him. Touch was something he either seemed to have never experienced or if he had it wasn't a positive thing. Prior to coming to us he was, in a terrible state with fluid on his brain, constantly circling, unable to stop, relax focus or see very well. The surgery we had performed on him to drain the fluid from his brain to his tummy has made such and incredible difference for Maccy.

Mac, medically, is an open book. We can't predict his future or the length of his life. His hydrocephalus means he can never play rough with another dog and not wear a collar or anything that can jerk at his neck. His condition could deteriorate or he may stay stable for a long time. But one thing we do know is our special boy deserves to find the best of best of homes whether for a short time or a long time. Someone who will work with his special little quirks and needs and just love him through it.

We're happy to provide support to anyone that can provide for Mac the special home he's looking for, whether through adoption or long term foster. It has to cover all his needs:

Home most of the time
Adult home with no other dogs or cats
Able to work with a physical/active dog
Patient and willing to go slowly to build trust
Close to specialists in case of emergency (melboune and suburbs)
Understanding of some little special needs and quirks

We know this is a long list but we're not giving up because we know you're out there somewhere!

If you think you may just be the one MacIntosh has been waiting and waiting for, please email us at rwl@rescuedwithlove.org.au

Hi there precious boy! Hope you enjoyed your little siesta. Really wish someone would come along and give you a wonderful forever home, and then my heart can stop breaking because I cannot have you. But until they do, you carry on being a wonderfully good boy for your special foster mummy and daddy. Love you very very much MacIntosh xoxo

I pray someone will give a home to this beautiful spirit .. 😎💙

Oh! Dear

Let me in Mum.

Great invention! I use one all the time when I go out, it keeps Lily out of the bedroom and remaking the bed to her liking.

Oh,oh, trouble brewing there.

Mean mummy 🤣

Not fair! 😂😂🐾💕🐾💕

Beautiful

Yes ... I have had to do same 😁

Partners in crime UH?

Oh my

Cute

"Well how rude" lol

When my Granddogs visit I block of my bedroom using a child gate. Only my dog allowed in ‘our’ bedroom. Also have one near front door, so no escaping when door open.

😄😄

They’ll get used to it !😁

Just too cute🐾❤️

You need one for Panda Jo Gleeson

She’s in the kitchen as we speak! Wanita Motley

Lovely Lollie is booked in for her dental tomorrow, and, pending her blood test results desexing.
She's such a happy little girl, full of beans and fun. She loves her foster mums grandkids and was fine with meeting a cat, but she's a little hot and cold with other dogs. She's like "pfft, go away, I get all the attention around here, don't you know who I am".
So when we have her vet work done and she's ready to find her own family she will be looking for a special family that involve her in their lives as an only (dog) child, where she'll get all the love and attention she craves.

Merry little Merri is ready to start looking for her own home.
She the sweetest little thing who loves people. She'll walk right up and greet you with a kiss on the nose! "Slurp".

She would love someone who is home most of the time, and she will follow you everywhere. You will be her world. She will sleep on your bed, sit with you on the couch and help you eat your breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Merri has a heart condition that requires medication daily, as well as dry eye that will need drops and ointment to keep her eyes sparkling and healthy.

Read more about her, and if you have a very very special home for our delightful girl send us an application. You'll find her info and application form on our website.

I've just had a groom, now I'm "handsome, happy Chappy".
Chappy loves sleeps, cuddles, little walks and food!
He is a lovely boy, 13 years old with a mild heart murmur, that does not require medication at this stage. He has some spinal disc degeneration and is on anti-inflammatories, but the right home, who just gets that this kind of stuff happens as we age, won't blink an eyelid, because they will be the one who just wants to make happy Chappy happy for the rest of his life.
If you think that may be you, send us an application, you'll find it on our website www.rescuedwithlove.org/adopt/

Lovely Lolly, who came it us a couple of days ago, is such a character. She's a little wind up bunny, such a happy little girl, on the go, zooming here and there.
We estimate she's around 5-6ish.
Her vet assessment showed, she's a healthy, lovely little girl. She has luxating patellas that we need to monitor, to see how she's managing, before we decide if surgery is required. It's certainly not slowing her down at all!
In the meantime, this gorgeous little ganoush is the life of the party.

Polly (one of our foundation dogs) hasn’t been feeling the best of late. A recurring eye problem again saw her at the eye specialists. The lovely Dr Kelly found a corneal ulcer, no wonder Polly has been so out of sorts.
Another course of antibiotics and eye drops, a contact lens to help protect the eye, with a return visit in 14 days.

Polly’s medicine tray is now busting at the seams! Vetmedin and frusemide for her heart murmur. Oroxine for her Hypothyroidism. Pain relief for her arthritis - All taken twice daily with ease, thankfully!

Not sure she’s looking too happy with all the interference yesterday! but how scrumptious does our Polly Waffle look after her morning at the beauty spa 💕

Hoping Polly’s ulcer heals well. My little furry fella had to have surgery for one in November and fortunately it healed very well. Apparently they are very painful. I hope Polly’s eye is feeling better soon.

Pretty little girl 💜
