Its a sad fact that there are to many strays in the UK and that some do not make it out of the Council pounds alive. Dogs are picked up by the Dog warden and they are taken to Pounds where they have legally 7 days to be claimed. If they are not claimed then some pounds allow people to help the dogs to find Rescue Spaces for them. Though with over Breeding especially the poor Staffordshire Bull Terrier it is becoming harder to find the spaces. So with heavy hearts we have lost some of the dogs to be pts (put to sleep).
If only the back Street Breeders, Puppy Farms, Irresponsible Owners could see the look of fear that goes on in those dogs eyes as they take their last breath!!
Please make sure your Dog is Micro Chipped, and details are always kept up to date!! Also wearing the legal Dog ID Tag....... Did you know there was a fine of up to £2,000 if your dog is not wearing an ID Tag. These small things could make the difference between Life and Death!!
Below are some poems and photos of babies who did not make it out, our hearts break and we shed so many tears....... We just wish the Owners/Breeders cared as much as we did!!
Rainbow Bridge Poem
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our pets are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; Her eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your dog, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
IN LOVING MEMORY R.I.P.BABIES
Our darling boy words fail me every time i look at your photo, you were such a sweet young boy who just wanted to run free and play in the snow!! You were with someone did they love you Jacob I do so hope that they did at some point, you deserved to be loved. You were alone and helpless and walking the streets. You were picked up and taken to a dark cold place, no one to give you love and affection like you deserved. you spent 7 lonely days and 7 so cold nights on your own wondering what you did wrong.
Every time someone walked past you would run to them and wag your tail and give your staffy smile. In the hope that your master came........ He never Did!!
You would return to your bed cold and hard and tuck your head under your paws and silently cry why me!! What have i done wrong? you would think!!
Jacob you did nothing wrong my darling boy you were loved by your mummy but a year before and were taken from her warmth and protection, you then committed the crime of growing up an inconvenience!!
That final day you saw 2 people approach and you thought your time was here at last......... The sad fact was Jacob it was but not in the way it should of been, you see Jacob you died alone that day in a cold dark dirty place with no one to show you love and affection....... If only you knew baby boy there was people out there trying to fight for your life...... When they told me you was gone i was broken hearted When you Died Jacob a piece of me died as well. But in your name we carry on fighting even stronger so that one day the babies before and after you will not have died in Vain!!
Good night sweet dreams Angel i am so so sorry. xxx R.I.P xxxxxx
I wondered round for many days before I was brought here.
Now I wait with heavy heart, trepidation and with fear.
Seven days is all I have you see, seven days for you to claim
the little dog that you threw out, for which you have no shame.
This is my last goodbye now my seven days are up
If only more thought had gone into the future of that pup
as the needle empties to my veins I lay down with one last sigh
I'm sorry I was born a Staff, because it means that I must die.
I am trying to find the words to write but there are indeed nothing i could say to tell you how i am feeling right this minute. It is was a very heavy heart that i have to inform you that today Honey will be PTS. Along with another poor baby.
This was because during a dog test although seem fine together there was an incident where the other dog fell on top of Honey and a fight broke out. Now both dogs have been deemed not suitable for re homing.
Words fail me at the moment
Sleep tight sweet baby girl you do not deserve this and sleep tight other baby so so so sorry, you will never be forgotten xxxxxx sorry xxxxxxx
Darling boy we are so so sorry you never deserved to feel so much pain and heartache, but we hope that you understood that you were loved and i just wish you could know that there are so many people who have never met you or been involved who have cried for you today. sleep well baby boy may you forgive us as we can not forgive ourselves xxx
forever in our hearts and thoughts a piece of me died with you last night take it with you and one day we will meet and i will tell you that we so so tried xxxxx

IF ONLY THERE WAS A WAY
BUT THERE IS ONLY EVIL THAT LURk
IF ONLY THERE WAS NO MORE SUFFERING
OF THESE DOGS THEY CALL BAIT
FOR YOU MY DARLING BOY
IF ONLY IT WAS NOT TO LATE
IF ONLY THE LAW WAS ON YOUR SIDE
AND THE EVIL WERE MADE TO PAY
IF ONLY THERE WAS NO MORE SUFFERING
BION... IT WILL HAPPEN ONE DAY!!
IF ONLY WE HAD A LITTLE MORE TIME
THEN YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN
IF ONLY WE COULD OF SAVED YOU
YOU WOULD OF SEEN HOW IT WAS MEANT TO OF BEEN

IF ONLY WE COULD TELL THEM

3 YEARS AGO TODAY
3 Years ago today a very special little boy sat in his kennel. Like he had done for the past week. Wagging his tail when someone came by in the hope it was his turn as he had seen others come and go. Then when they never he would return into his bed with his head down wondering why!!
3 Years ago today, at around 1pm someone did come by to say hello. His little head lifted and his sadness turned to a smile on his face. His little tail wagged so hard and there was joy in his heart "Its Me Its Me" finally its my turn to leave
3 Years ago today. A little boy left his kennels for a journey of what he hoped to be happiness and a new life, he jumped happily around and into the car and left for his "Freedom Ride" He was placed in a crate on his own in the back of a van. But this little boy was happy he was out!! no more kennels!!
3 Years ago today. A little boy walked into a room and what happened in that room we can only hope a moment of kindness was shown.......
3 years ago today A little boy never left that room on a lead but his happiness and waggy tail stopped when he laid so still on that table. No happy freedom ride, sadly for this little boy.
3 Years ago today our heart broke and we shed so many tears
3 Years ago today Jacobs died!!
Jacob never got his chance, he was a young boy who had done nothing wrong. Except he became just a percentage of unwanted strays in the uk during 2012. Sadly for this little boy we were just to late, Since that day we have honored his Name and we have fought for so many lives, Sadly we can not bring Jacob back but we can fight to Educate people to try and make them understand that breeding and irresponsible owners are killing the lives of innocent dogs each and ever day. Here we are in 2015 and the fight still goes on, if only we could say that things had got better, if only we could see a light at the end of the tunnel. But no matter how long it takes we will never stop fighting their Corner.
Jacob you were a very special boy to us, sadly there are just to many Jacobs all over the uk. But together your memory lives on, and we will fight for those who sadly follow in your footsteps. Good night baby boy sweet dreams and in our hearts you will live on forever xxxxxx
