August 2021 - Marley's a happy camper!: Marly came to us as sadly her previous owner could no longer look after her. Being such a sweet girl we suspected she wouldn't be with us long and we were right. In weeks she was finding her feet in her forever home and we recently received a lovely update on how well she is settling in, finding new pals and even going on her first camping trip.
July 2021 - Ozzy finds a new chum: Ozzy came to us as his previous owners could not manage his boisterous character. Being young and playful he could sometimes forget his manners but staff at the centre could see he was an intelligent dog who was willing and able to learn new things.
We were so grateful to receive an update that he has settled into his new home and that he has a lovely pal, Bodger, to practice his wrestling with.
He is learning lots of new tricks from Bodger and is already walking well on a lead to heal. It's so lovely to hear that he is doing so well and settling in with his new family.
May 2021 - A warm spot for Bill to call home: Bill touched the hearts of everyone who heard his story. We were all so delighted to share the news that he found his forever home.
Following his rescue back in February and with thanks to your generosity and support Bill received the medical care he needed and has continued to get stronger every day.
Poor Bill was found outside in sub-zero temperatures in an exposed porch, lying on a wet blanket after being left for two days as his owner thought he had already died. The 15-year-old crossbreed dog was rescued by the RSPCA on one of the coldest days in February.
When Inspector Laura Barber attended, the elderly dog was clearly in a bad state but his tail started to wag at her approach. She said: This poor fella had been left out in sub-zero temperatures as sadly his owner thought he had already died! I have no idea how he had survived but I was so grateful to see his tail wag when I arrived. Bill was signed over into our care as he is in need of costly veterinary treatment. The poor fella is thin and has a huge, open sore on his back. The RSPCA Scarborough Branch have been absolutely brilliant and agreed to take him into their care but sadly he needs surgery to remove the lump on his back, as well as neutering and a dental procedure.
Bill is now doing well at the vets following his operation which was done at the earliest opportunity to prevent any further suffering. Altogether, his treatment alone is expected to cost around £900 so the RSPCA Scarborough Branch are appealing to help fund the cost of Bills treatment.
Kath, Dog Coordinator at the RSPCA Scarborough and District Branch, said: I'm really pleased our inspector was able to rescue Bill and hes now getting the care and love he deserves. It really shows that we don't give up on older animals. We all want to see Bill recover and live out the rest of his retirement years in a warm and cosy home.
RSPCA Branches are separately registered charities so we raise money to help care for local animals in our area. The last year has been particularly tough for charities like ourselves due to the impact of the pandemic, so we are appealing to kind members of the public to support Bills recovery and donate to our Just Giving page.
