URGENT!!!! Rosie needs a place to stay from Tuesday...

URGENT If you are here for news of the "Don't Cook Your Dog Campaign" click here ... but, please read on before you click as we do so much more than this campaign and regular readers will know all about the two dogs in London we have been helping. Their OAP owner ended up homeless and sleeping in a car, Tailwaggers Club Trust stepped in to help find both dogs foster homes so their owner could get back on her feet!

HELP!!!! 
  
Rosie now needs a place to stay again from Tuesday afternoon or even before that if you can manage it to make sure she settles.

We need someone to take her from Tuesday afternoon or earlier and keep her until Dee gets rehoused - have asked for an ETA for that, but it can't be much longer as the halfway house costs the council a small fortune. The foster home doesn't have to be in central London, but they do need to ideally not have any dogs or cats.

Rosie is 11 years old and very sweet with people.

We have some funds as yet unallocated from the appeal but we have already eaten into much of the money already donated for dog sitting cover on other days when Rosie needed a sitter.THe possible bill for an animal aunt to cover the period current foster mum is working is just too enormous to contemplate and we just don't have the money donated to anywhere near cover it.

Hence we are now officially desperate! To add to to equation - I am so busy with the Don"t Cook Your Dog Campaign and school holidays having broken up plus being about to go away myself, I really can't spend as much time trying to make this happen as I would normally and have already for this case - so I am begging you to please help me find somewhere for Rosie to stay!
 
Click here for their JustGiving link - we are really in need of topping this up now as we've lost all margin of error. Tailwaggers is a tiny little charity and we really do need your help!

My email address is beverley@dogstodaymagazine.co.uk if you can help in any way at all!!!



Rosie's owner Dee is an OAP with mobility problems. Due to misfortune she's ended up homeless in London and the council halfway house wasn't dog friendly so rather than give up her two dogs - which are the most important things in her life - she chose to sleep in the car with them instead. As soon as we heard about this we tried to find foster home for Rosie and Milo - and Tailwaggers Club Trust set up a Just Giving page to mean we could pay for dog sitters etc to keep the dogs safe.  We've already used some of that money for cover days when Rosie's foster mums had to go out to work and leave Rosie.

Milo is happily settled, but Rosie needs someone who has no other dogs or cats as Rosie is not greatly socialised. She can be left for a couple of hours but gets distressed if any longer. She is a very affectionate and loving dog and all her foster mums have adored her.

Hopefully Dee will soon reach to the top of the emergency housing  list and will get her own place and she can have her best friends back.  But until then, we need a plan B. If you think you could offer Rosie a temporary foster home can you email me beverley@dogstodaymagazine.co.uk with more details. Many thanks! 

Here's Dee's other dog Milo in his Foster home.
I've just received this email about Dee's other dog Milo's who is with foster mum Kia. 

Dear Beverley

We have just found out from Dee that Milo has cancer in his lump on his leg. Fortunately it won't spread to his organs but the worse case scenario might be losing the leg.
I will let you know what is happening after we have seen the vet next Tuesday. I will be giving him LOADS of healing in the mean time.


Anyway ... A lovely lady called Lisa Gozling sent Milo of a box of cookies from Daisy's Dog Deli. Please see the  link underneath as I have filmed him eating them and out its on Youtube so hopefully you can add it to your next blog.



I have also enclosed some more pics. The third one is of Dee holding Milo outside the vet... she said she doesn't mind you putting it in your magazine or internet if you write another blog.



Milo has officially become one of my closest and best friends. Tim is very busy with Cleo so Milo has adopted me as his temporary Mum and he follows me everywhere. He causes me to laugh out loud at least five times a day as he such a strong character. I love him sitting next to me on the sofa and his special Zebra-print, fluffy basket that I bought him is right next to my bed at night.
He seems to love eating lettuce, broad beans and all sorts of vegetables etc that he constantly begs from my plate. He can be a grumpy growler at times but I think that's because his little leg hurts him where a Rottweiller sat on him recently.
In short I love him profoundly and it will break my heart into a hundred pieces to let him go back to Dee. But I will never forget the happiness he has given me and how healing his company is on so many levels.

Kind prayers for his healing would be very much appreciated if your wonderful readers could possibly spare the time.
My love and gratitude
Kia xxx

Hi Milo,
I just wanted to send you some love and support from one cancer sufferer to another. I have 2 kinds (lymphoma and a melanoma), so I know it's not the best, but you know these vets can do some amazing things, and if you've got a lovely person doing some healing or you ( my mum sends in the commandos to fight mine!!) you'll be alright.
lots of love amd woofs
