Domestic violence meant that this lady has lost her job, her home, her family. She's had a breakdown and took an overdose and needs to be close to the hospital and the domestic violence support team. She can't drive so she gets the bus. She's on a very limited budget. The council have put her in a b&b until her name comes up for somewhere to live where she can be reunited with her pets.
Her pets are all she has left. Her pets are in foster care and the funding for that ends on Friday and then she's into the unknown. Her 8 year old GSD was a rescue and he's not coping well with being apart. And that is further stressing her, obviously. She's afraid that if he was assessed now he'd fail as he's been so stressed out of late and she's scared he'll get PTS. Her other young dog is a Dobermann and she has a male cat she hand reared.
She has to be in St Austell and she'd prefer to be with her pets as she's worried about them and they're all she's got - quite literally.
RSPCA have a pet retreat in Cornwall but as the dogs are what they called, "traditionally dangerous breeds" they'd be unlikely to be able to help. And she's worried that they'd be separated if they could and that the GSD would end up getting so stressed he'd be put down.
Dogs Trust Freedom and Hope projects couldn't help.
So, we're looking for a miracle!
Anyone got a holiday cottage she can borrow? She will get granted somewhere to live eventually, but people fleeing domestic violence with kids take priority.
She'd even accept somewhere to pitch a tent, but I'd worry about her freezing to death - but that's how desperate she is to stay together with her family.
I've forwarded her the phone number for the tourist board so she can approach holiday lets.

Pets really do mean such a lot and I'm thinking this woman could really do with a bit of good fortune so she can start putting her life back together. Just knowing we all care is a start.
