Never Forgotten (Page 1/3)

Pets are like family, and saying goodbye can be one of the hardest things we do. Our pets live on through our memories, and because of this, will never be forgotten.

If you would like to share a photograph and a few words about a pet you’ve lost – whether it’s recent, or many years ago – please consider using our Never Forgotten page. It’s a special way to share memories of a never forgotten pet with like-minded people, and it’s also a lovely way to celebrate their life.

We hope our supporters will feel comforted by it, whether you decide to share a memory or not.
To leave a memory, please complete our Never Forgotten guestbook below.


CeriOwned by Jim & Hannah Norris

Beautiful Ceri was such a loving girl, and came to us from a local rescue centre at 5 months old, when we lived in Wales. Though nervous in her early years, she was always full of energy, and after learning to retrieve, became easy to exercise. I am a wheelchair user and she quickly understood how to trot next to me, and that sticks, balls etc had to be placed on my lap. We lived by the sea for most of her life, which she loved to throw herself into, on walks with daddy! But I will always be full of gratitude for the way she would comfort me when our youngest daughter died, unexpectedly. She would put her front paws either side of my lap and when I leaned forward to cuddle her, sobbing; she pressed her head into my neck until I quietened again, licked my tears away and lay down beside me, with an ear up. She made those agonising early weeks a bit less awful. She will always be my heroine! RIP Ceri, and thank you from every fibre of my heart for being the finest loyal friend, companion and comforter, for 15 glorious years.


SassyOwned by Brian & Cathy johnston

We adopted sassy 10 years ago, she was 3/4, we’ve have had 10 years of wonderful holidays and adventures with her, she was loved by many , and popularly called’ the diva’ because she was so beautiful . She regularly visited Oak Tree and used to send post cards from her holidays, we lost her on 27th October and miss her so much.


MillieOwned by Lucy

This morning we had to make the difficult decision to have our beautiful Millie put to sleep. At 21 years old she had a fabulous life but over the past two days she showed signs that she wasnt well and this morning her back legs gave out and she was struggling. She brought us many years of beautiful, happy memories and will always have a place in our hearts. She had the best life and was loved by us all. She will live on in our hearts and memories and will never be forgotten. I am just thankful that I was there with her in her last moments. Sleep tight.

Edith KerrOwned by Edith Kerr

Milligan came to us from Oak Tree on 17th November 2006. We have enjoyed and been privileged to share his life these past 13 years. Unfortunately his health has been declining over the past 12 months and at the weekend on the advise of the vet we had to part with him.


FinbarOwned by Tony Lucy and Caitlin

Fin came to live with us from OakTree at 6 months of age and we had 14 years with him. What a super happy joyful dog he has been. We miss him lots.


MinnieOwned by Sue & Charlie Hodgson

We lost our Minnie just 2 months ago to melanoma. She was the perfect little staffy, so loving and affectionate. We're totally lost without her. We had her from a pup from a local rescue and were so lucky to have had her for 12 wonderful years. Beautiful girl. Miss you.


PetraOwned by Doreen raphael

My beloved Petra. I adopted her from you three and a half years ago when she was 16. She was a house cat and my best friend. She was a mummy’s girl who liked to cuddle on the couch or sleep in my arms in bed at night. Totally ruined. My heart is breaking. If anybody is thinking about adopting please think about an older cat. I said when I adopted Petra I would make what ever time she had left happy and loved and I did. If Petra wanted it Petra got it! ,.And she was only 4 months away from being a grand old age of 20 yrs.. Miss her so much.


MollyOwned by Rachel & Rob

We had to say goodbye to our beautiful Molly at the end of August. Molly was no ordinary dog, she was loved by all who met her. Gentle, kind, funny and unique. We so loved her and miss her terribly. We are very grateful that she lived 15 long and happy years with us and she made us smile each day of her life with us. Thanks Moll, for teaching us all so much about compassion and what really matters in life. We love and miss you always xxx


BayleyOwned by Fran Pearson

Bayley, my handsome little man. Passed away very suddenly in my arms on Thursday 19th July 2018 from a pulmonary embolism, aged 10 years 8 months. Thank-you for being you and for teaching me how to love unconditionally. For being my best friend and reminding me of the joy of simple walks and pleasures when times were tough...never forgotten...never replaced, love from mam. xxx


AlfieOwned by Bob and Diane Redhead

Alfie made our life complete and we are lost without him. He was full of collie character, fun and mischief. We had a 'talking' collie, a loyal friend and companion. He soon had us trained and would take us on long country walks filled with lots of fun, throwing sticks and laughter. What a character he was. He made lots of doggy friends and would often be admired by their owners. We loved him dearly and were repaid a hundred fold. If only we could have had him longer, that's the sadness that his life was cut short by illness. But we will be forever grateful that he came into our lives, turned them upside down with his cheeky ways. He can never be replaced and will be forever missed and loved, but we hope one day to have another doggy friend, not a replacement, but another little character who we can love and be loved by. So Alfie, many many thanks from the bottom of our hearts for all your love and loyalty and for teaching us so much about dogs that we didn't know before. You were truly one in a million and we will love and miss you forever.
