Please help Milly

This is such a beautiful dog, and so many ways to help her.

On the 11th October, I published a story, a story with a very happy ending, about George, a lovely dog who was rescued from the Dog Pound the day before he was due to be killed.  The underlying request was to help, in any way that you could, raise funds in conjunction with the Dog Pound Ball being held in Yorkshire.

As I wrote, and as we all know full too well, there are many other dogs that require our help.  This is the story of Milly, 9 years old and sadly has spent almost 3 years in rescue.
Little Milly

Milly was handed in from a local home when her owners felt they could no longer keep her.  She is an affectionate dog once she learns to trusts, but does growl at strangers and doesn’t present well in kennels.  As a result of these issues Milly has been at the rescue kennels for almost three years now, which is a long time for any dog to have to tolerate.

As time goes on it becomes increasingly unlikely that we will succeed in finding her a home.  Barnsley Animal Rescue Centre (BARC) does not give up on its rescue animals and has been working with this lovely dog to overcome her problems.  Sadly we feel we have done all we can here.

It would be heartbreaking to think she would live out the rest of her life here with us instead of being loved and surrounded by her own family.  So we have decided on a way of helping Milly, but it comes at a cost.

Specialist rehabilitation has been arranged but it is going to cost BARC about £50 per week.  It’s unclear how long the treatment will take and how effective it will be, but we feel Milly deserves this chance, and know that you will agree with us.

So let’s all do something to help these special creatures, the Georges and the Millys of this world, who offer us humans such unconditionally love and loyalty.
