Our dear friends that have passed away in their homes.
He put the Great in Great Dane. We always looked after Monty when his owners went away. He was a big gentle giant - wouldn't hurt a fly.
RIP big guy
Our dear friends who we have passed away at the Sanctuary
TAMMY the Yorkie
This little girl became our Christmas Belle in 2009 but sadly passed away before the year ended.
Our beautiful GSD. Loved by all the staff at the sanctuary.
BETTY - Dec 2010
We only knew you from such a short time, but you ment the world to us. You will be dearly missed by the Griffiths family and all at the Sanctuary.
CINDY - A Beautiful GSD Died 2006
She came to us with her puppies and was a very loving mother. Cindy found a home on the Wirral, but escaped a few hours after she had been delivered to her new owners. Tragically she died on the motorway alone after being hit. We still can't believe she's gone.
She was Cathy's baby at the Sanctuary.
We have kept this photograph as our screensaver ever since. She is forever in our thoughts.
AMBER Died 9.3.2010
BRAMBLE THE TURKEY
Found wandering, Bramble thankfully found her way onto our grounds and decided to make the Sanctuary her home. She lived many more years than she was expected to and it was a joy to give her the Christmas trimmings to eat. She even made it onto our Christmas cards one year, promoting Nut Roast.
We miss our Bramble - our only turkey we have had.
Chan was loved by everyone at the Sanctuary, but even more so by Derek, our Animal Welfare Officer.
It was heartbreaking to lose him. Gone but never forgotten.
Forever in Derek's heart.
MAX - THE WATER BABE
A lovable Fox Terrier. He enjoyed life to the full and the staff made sure he had fun.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigour; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
