GrA­CIE’s nEw stArt

Pride Life Magazine - - SPONSORED FEATURE -

Gra­cie, the gen­tle Lurcher, was brought into Wood Green, The An­i­mals Char­ity God­manch­ester Cen­tre, on a cold day ear­lier in the year. She’d been found half-starved and shiv­er­ing. As one of the worst cases of ne­glect the team had ever seen, it was vi­tal that she re­ceived the ded­i­cated care and at­ten­tion she so des­per­ately needed to get her back on her feet, and off to a new for­ever home to ex­pe­ri­ence the love and kind­ness she so des­per­ately de­served.

Fol­low­ing posts on so­cial me­dia and the web­site about her con­di­tion, her story touched the hearts of so many that it re­sulted in the char­ity be­ing in­un­dated with of­fers to re­home her. So, af­ter weeks of search­ing for the right home, Wood Green were thrilled to re­port that not only had Gra­cie gone from strength to strength, she had at last found a won­der­ful and lov­ing new home with Mrs Barker.

It was a big day for Mrs Barker, Gra­cie and the Wood Green team when it was time for her to leave the God­manch­ester Cen­tre, to leave be­hind the fa­mil­iar faces that had cared for her through­out her re­cov­ery. Gra­cie, al­beit shy and re­served, greeted her new owner with a wag of the tail and with that, their new friend­ship was sealed. Com­plete with a lovely new coat and col­lar, Gra­cie ex­cit­edly headed off to her new home much to the re­lief and de­light of ev­ery­one con­cerned.

In a fol­low-up visit to see how they were get­ting on, Mrs Barker was de­lighted to re­port that Gra­cie has set­tled really well and takes great en­joy­ment from bask­ing in the sunny spots in the lounge and has even un­leashed her fun-lov­ing side! She loves her walks and re­cently sur­prised Mrs Barker when a few par­tridges flew out of a bush whilst on their daily walk: Gra­cie quickly stood up onto her hind legs to get a bet­ter look at the com­mo­tion!

It’s won­der­ful to see a pet like Gra­cie so set­tled and en­joy­ing her new life, one which is filled with love and kind­ness. Gra­cie’s happy ever af­ter story was only made pos­si­ble thanks to the ded­i­cated care from the Wood Green team and also, most im­por­tantly, the gen­eros­ity of the supporters who are the life blood to the char­ity.
