TAXI

TAXI griffon X collie

Sometimes it takes the prospect of finding a forever home for the fosterer to realise that they do not want their protégé to go anywhere.  Such was the case for Taxi.  His Mum had found him, coaxed him, fed him, protected him, promoted him . . . and finally decided that he was staying, and so adopted him.  And so she wears her "Failed Fosterer" badge with pride and Taxi has the only home he has ever known . . and life is good!

MOOGLI

Adoptez-moi

After looking after Moogli for  8 months his foster mum decided he wasn't going aywhere and decided to adopted. him.  He now continues to live a happy life in the country side with his 2 golden retriever sisters

Diego

Big boy needing a tender home

When Bobby left my fosterer's I thought I would be next . . . then they told me that I was staying, that I would live with them for the rest of my life.  I can't tell you how happy I am.  I know I have grown in confidence since being with them - they make me feel good - and now I can continue to grow and become the dog I know I can be.  Life is just wonderful!

Bobby

Bobby seeking a new home

Well I thought I was "at home" with my fosterer and all the other dogs.  Then one day a lady came along with a dog that looked amazingly like me, only smaller.  We got on really well from word go and had a good play.  He was obedient too and so off we went in a car together.  They keep telling me I have my passport and will be going to the UK.  Stan, my new mate, says it's OK and he'll be there too.  So I'm really looking forward to this new adventure.  

Plume

Cat ready for adoption

It is thanks to our refuge volunteers that Plume, formerly a feral cat, has become an adopted cat.  He left the refuge 18 months after having arrived - what a transformation!  A magnificent boy - have a magnificent life.

LOU (ex LUCKY)

Lucky Lou

Lucky Lou, this beautiful lemon English Setter pup, has found his forever home up in the mountains with a family who know setters through and through.  He is growing into a wonderful dog and is thoroughly loved . . . though not spoiled!!!  Hard luck, original owner, you really really missed out on this one!

CHARLES

Charles

I am one of the lucky ones!  The dreadful leishmaniosis had got me and I was taking a time to recover.  My fosterer took great care of me and then decided she couldn't let me go!  The better I got, the more lively and full of joy I became.  I just love living among so many other lucky dogs, cats, birds, and far too many other animals to mention.  My life is wonderful.

TANSY, MIO AND MAX

3 kittens

After fostering these three kittens were returned to the refuge where they represented a great "bargain".  Unlike many refuge cats they were fully vaccinated, house-trained and used to being handled in a home environment.  Fostering made a huge difference to these three beauties.

JAEGER

English Setter

Sometimes things happen for a reason.  Jaeger's original fosterer injured her knee and was laid up.  He was getting bored . . . and consequently naughty so it was thought best to find a new home for him.

Just onto our books had come a new fostering family who knew setters - a gift from the universe!  And so he went to stay with them - and it was a match made in heaven.  He even looked like their other two setters!  It was not long before fostering became adoption and there is no-one more delighted than us for this boy.
