Meet Lady. Lady is a beautiful and very much loved Cocker Spaniel. Lady swallowed a sock while playing, this caused a catastrophic obstruction which without surgery would have been fatal. Lady's owners had insurance, but it did not come close to covering the cost of her surgery.

Her loving owners were facing an unimaginable choice, surrender their precious pet to rescue to save her life, or have her put to sleep. They contacted our East Yorkshire Community Support Manager for help, it was apparent that Lady was in a wonderful home where she was very much loved, and up until this freak accident was living a wonderful life. Coming into rescue to be rehomed clearly would not be in her best interests. We were delighted to be able to make a contribution towards her surgery, to allow her to remain with her family, and she has since fully recovered.

Lady's family love their dog so very much, they just needed a little extra help. We want to be there for families like Lady's, keeping precious pets out of kennels and where they belong, with their loving families. We work hard to do that wherever possible, but we cannot do it alone.

Show families who need just a little extra help, that they are not alone this Christmas.
