Current Status: Homed Tessa & Lexi's Story :
Owner being made homeless could not find anywhere for her 2 Staffies, so they were booked to be put to sleep. Rescue Remedies were approached & offered a Rescue place saving their lives. Tessa & Lexi are now neutered; are chipped and fully vaccinated. They came into our care on the 7th Dec 16 and was in Guildford boarding kennels sharing a kennel.Click here to learn how to add YouTube Videos to your phpBB forum
PLEASE NOTE: Dog laws have changed with zero public tolerance and prejudice against bull breeds and terriers. Our Rescue asks new owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters for at least 4 months until sure of their dogs instincts & skills, some need to be retained always on a lead, so as not to place dog's lives at risk, (Destruction or Control Orders are common place nowadays).
***PLEASE HELP OUR LONG STAY DOGS: Our min. adoption donation £175, which supports our work and Is non returnable. We will offer an alternative dog should our dog not settle given adequate time and reassurance. Rescue Remedies offers their dogs back up for life and exist on the goodwill of our supporters and volunteers.

2.12.16: Hiya Lynne, I'm a veterinary nurse at CXXXXXXXXXXX Vets in Essex. I have a client of ours who has her dogs booked in to be euthanized on Monday (5th December) at 1pm as she is being made homeless on Tuesday. She has tried multiple other rescue centres, but sadly she keeps being rejected as they are all full at this time of year. I have been asked If I could help, so I am wondering if you could possibly take them into rescue and find a foster or forever home (ideally together, but understand it's not always possible) as this is URGENT.
They are 2 entire female Staffies (mum and daughter), Tessa who is 10 and Lexi who is 8. Up-to-date with vaccinations. Good with other dogs on walks, but hasn't previously lived with any others.
Not good with cats as they usually try to chase them on walks. Both microchipped.
The owner has agreed to have them both spayed instead of being euthanized if a rescue space can be found. The lady's mother-in-law will be paying for either both neuters/euthanasia. The owner also has no way of transporting her dogs. Would you be able to help with this also? Would you be able to contact me as soon as possible please and I can let the owner know. If you have any other questions, or find that is easier to speak over the phone Thank you! Rosey SVN
Tessa & Lexi are being spayed on Monday and being held until Wednesday then coming into Gatwick Kenns
