Bella and Rosie's Journey

While we were all desperate to get back out of our homes, Rosie and Bella were ready to find theirs.

This Spring, we highlight the journeys of a young tabby called Rosie and a young Terrier cross named Bella who arrived at the Home during 2020. From the point of being surrendered or abandoned right up to when they are rehomed to a loving forever family, every dog and cat’s path is unique and it is important to share their journey throughout the pandemic.

Bella's Story

Hi, excuse me, sorry to interrupt. My name is Bella and I’m lost.

I have been wandering the streets for so long now I can’t even tell you what day it is. I’m scared, confused and exhausted. I really don’t know where to go, nobody sees me and when they do, they tell me to “shoo”. Lockdown means there’s not many people around to help. I don’t know how long I can keep doing this, I am absolutely terrified and desperately need some peace.

Rosie's Story

I was in a deep sleep and comfortable in my bed. But I sprang awake when I heard my human shouting “Rosie, it’s time for dinner!”

“How strange”… I thought to myself. It seemed too early for dinner. When I hurried into the kitchen, there was no food… just an empty box. I took an instant dislike to that box. I tried to run back out of the room, but before I could make it out, my human had picked me up.

We need your support to keep going

As the pandemic continues, our vital work does not stop. We continue to rescue and rehabilitate animals like Rosie and Bella. Their stories are not uncommon, and we are already seeing an increase in the number of unwanted pets being brought to the Home.

We cannot carry out our service to the community alone. Your kind support will save more animals from a life of uncertainty, or worse. They need warm hearted people like you. Please help us to help them.
