A Home for Kim and Molly

Posted November 2019

Do you have the special, loving home that Molly and Kim so desperately need?

Molly and Kim are two devoted 10 year old sisters who have spent all of their lives extremely close to one another and are looking for a home where they can live out the rest of their days together.

They came to the centre via an inspector after their needs were not being met, and sadly Molly suffers from asthma, so due to her old age we don’t think she has too long left to live. We are desperate to find a special family who will take these two girls home, so Molly doesn’t have to spend her last days in a kennel and her sister doesn’t end up all alone.

Both Molly and Kim, are very nervous with new people and in new situations, so we are looking for an adult only home with adopters who are gentle, kind and understanding of their past. Once they get to know you they are very loving dogs, who enjoy being fussed and comforted, and just love being with you! Due to their previous circumstances they do not have much experience of the outside world, so their new family will need to give them lots of time and patience to help them overcome their insecurities. 

Molly’s Asthma medication will be covered by our assisted adoption scheme, so please don’t let this put you off. Staff will be happy to talk to you about the care Molly and Kim will need, and to answer any questions you may have. We would love to see these two beautiful, sweet girls in the loving home they deserve, as soon as possible.

Can you find a place in your heart and your home for these wonderful old ladies?
