An RSPCA rescue dog who was diagnosed with cancer has finally be rehomed after months of being left on the shelf.
Eight-year-old Cleo was taken into the RSPCA Derby and District Branch, where a routine vet check discovered she had a number of mammory tumours which were likely to be cancerous, and would need an operation in future.
Volunteer Leanne Manchester said rehoming animals is tough enough in the current climate, without new owners having to worry about medical bills on top of the cost of keeping a pet.
Staff launched an appeal for a new family willing to take her on - and, after a Facebook appeal was shared dozens of times, it reached a woman living on the Isle of Man.
Anita Williams has taken in several terminally ill animals in the past and offered Cleo the chance to join them.
Ms Manchester said everyone at the branch was overjoyed they had managed to find her a home.
We are just delighted that Cleo has found a loving new home after all the stress she has had.
We don’t know how long she has left – months or hopefully years – but we do know they are going to be filled with happiness and love.
We just hope that Cleo’s story will encourage more people to adopt dogs from the RSPCA as we have so many with sad background stories like Cleo.
