Dear Osborne - so nearly went home

Osborne and Fabienne - they thought he was going home.

In her diary, Fabienne tells us the story of poor sweet Osborne, who so nearly had his golden basket. She fetched him from Isabelleke's because at last, this lovely boy was going to live with a forever family. He had a nice wash and was got ready for his big trip. Everyone, including Osborne, was so excited - he'd been waiting so long. And then, at the last moment, a phone call. His reservation had been cancelled. So sad, such a disappointment. 

Why does something like this happen to such a good dog? He's a lovely character, a dependent dog who is social with the other dogs. A young Bodeguero, he was dumped like trash and thrown over Isabelleke's gate. She is one of our splendid foster mummies and has lavished love and care on this little one, as she does with all the dogs in her care.

Osborne is a real cuddle bunny, he loves being petted and is always cheerful. We so want him to find a loving family, especially after this cruel setback. Please, who can help? Who can make sure that this darling soon gets another chance for a happy life with his forever family? All his details, and how to adopt him, can be found on his very own page.

Osborne - champion cuddler!

Please will you be my family?

A happy, cheerful, thoroughly sweet character.

Indiana's story

Sweet innocent Indiana - joy wrapped up in fur.

I'm only four months old but my life so far has been sad. My mama was an ordinary cat who should have been able to expect a home, a pillow, a bowl of food, a garden and a boss who loved her. Unfortunately her boss didn't love her and abandoned her. After that mama became pregnant and it was difficult, so difficult that she died shortly after giving birth to her kittens. 

All my brothers and sisters, died too. Only me and my brother survived, thanks to the hard work of some kind and devoted people who bottle fed us until we were old enough to manage on our own. I was given the pretty name of Indiana and, just like my mama, it takes very little to make me happy. I dream of coming home with you. 

I'm not a pedigree cat, not a Persian or a Siamese cat. I am just an ordinary black and white cat but I'm a first class hugger. Really first class. I am house trained and very devoted. When you get to know me you'll find me more beautiful every day and when we grow up together I will not be an ordinary cat any more but the favourite of the house, that's for sure.

A modest, black and white cat but a first class hugger!

More beautiful every day!

Please fly me home ...

Gidion is yet another victim of the economic crisis in Spain. He was a little puppy when he first went to live with his family. He had a lovely life and there seemed to be no problems. But the economic crisis descended on Spain and his owners lost their jobs and their house with all terrible consequences  that entails.

Gidion is four years old now, a super sweet character, a darling who doesn't understand what has happened. Suddenly he finds himself in a shelter that is overflowing with dogs. That's realy hard for a former family dog. Nevertheless this dear fellow is very good and social with the other dogs and he adores people. He's a sweet guy who deserves to be appreciated and loved so much. Who will rescue him?

Gidion loves people

Social and playful and longing for a family of his own again.

Osvaldo - saved from the motorway ...


Poor little Osvaldo was found on the motorway and fortunately someone grabbed him and saved him. Nevertheless he ended up in the killing station, which was where we found him. What happened to this fellow, what is his story?  He had infected, puss filled bites all over his body. He also limps because of a damaged back leg. His body is just a heap of bones and his eyes tearful because they are infected and he is severely malnourished. He feels bad and just doesn't care any more.

He is with us now but because of his sick body he is listless and indifferent. He doesn't see the point in carrying on any more. His sad eyes go right through you. What happened to this dog? Who knows?  Poor soul! We so much want to give you a chance and so we hope against hope that you will survive. That you will make it.
Osvaldo is quite young but already so old because of everything that has happened to him.

So sad and fearful

His beautiful eyes are full of sadness

Just a bag of bones

His skinny body covered in sores

We hope this darling will recover and that we will find him a loving forever home.
