Can anyone offer a lovely elderly boy a retirenent home to live out the remainder of his life, so he doesnt live and die being in rescue?
Meet Rupert. Rupert is 18 yrs old and came into rescue in a bad state, very thin and a very bad mouth. His teeth were so bad he couldnt and hadnt been eating for a while, he had become very thin and miserable, literaly starving because his moth hurt to much to eat. Ruperts owners werent aware of this, they had gone to work abroad and left him in the care of a neighbour. When his family got offered the job full time away, he called the neighbours and they refused to care for him anymore (not that they had been due to the state he is in) Ruperts owners seeked a rescue for him. We took him and when he got into foster he was in the above state. I contacted the owners who were distraught there beloved pet had got this way, they paid for Ruperts vets care needed at the time. Rupert has a heart murmer bless him and needs medication for life now.. FORTEKOR TABS 56x2.5mg once a day.. His mouth has been sorted and he has dental done and came through good from GA, vet worked fast as age and heart murmer were against him. he is now eating soft wet foods and has gained strength well now.
Rupert needs a quite home, just to laze about in. he is used to cats and dogs but they must respect his space and leave him be, not to stress him out. he likes to sit on your lap on his own choice and grounds and have a stroke and cuddle. He isnt to keen on going out but will have a little ponder in the back garden to soak up the warm sun.. All he wants is feeding, peace and quite and someone to give him his meds dailey..
It would be so sad for him to come into rescue and die into rescue with out a home to call his own in his final years. his medication only costs £16.07 for 24 tablets, that last him 24 days.. Not much really to help him.
Rupert is in Boarder line of Wrexham and shropshire area and needs to be homed with in that area, as due to age and health traveling would be to much for him.. A long shot I know, but it would be nice to see him go to a home of his own.
