Clymping Dog Sanctuary is hoping National Pet Month will mark an end to Meecha's 18-month wait for a home.

Eight-year-old Meecha was originally brought into the Sanctuary in October, 2014, because its owners could no longer look after the dog. It has now been waiting a year and a half in the charity’s care.

There is no time limit on how long a rescue dog can spend waiting for a new home at the sanctuary, but the staff and volunteers are hoping the canine can find a loving home. Meecha is housetrained, enjoys the sunshine and travels well in a car. Quiet and loving, Meecha can live with older children but is looking for a home without other dogs or cats.

National Pet Month runs from April 1, to May 2, and offers the nation a chance to celebrate the wonderful impact pets have on our lives and reminds us of how important it is for us to provide the very best levels of care for our pets.

Clymping Dog Sanctuary trustee David Wilkins said: “It’s heartbreaking that after a year and a half with us Meecha still hasn’t found her forever home because she’s a wonderful dog with a lot to give. She loves a nice walk but is equally happy just having a tummy rub and a cuddle. Finding Meecha a new home would be the perfect way to celebrate National Pet Month. There is no doubt that she needs someone with experience but with the right new owner she’ll make a loyal and loving pet.”

To offer Meecha a home, call the sanctuary on 01903 883116 or email [email protected] for more information.
