Meecha, the Mastiff, who is looking for a new home after 18 MONTHs at a shelter in Clymping SUS-161104-142454001

Eight-year-old Meecha was originally brought into the sanctuary in October 2014 because her owners could no longer look after her.

She has now been waiting a year and a half in the charity’s care, with a forever home continuing to elude her.

There is no time limit on how long a rescue dog can spend waiting for a new home at the sanctuary, but the staff and volunteers are all now hoping that this deserving animal can finally find a loving home to call her own.

Meecha is friendly and house trained

Clymping Dog Sanctuary trustee David Wilkins said: “It’s heart-breaking that after a year and a half with us Meecha still hasn’t found her forever home because she’s a wonderful dog with a lot to give.

“She loves a nice walk but is equally happy just having a tummy rub and a cuddle.

“Finding Meecha a new home would be the perfect way to celebrate National Pet Month.

“There is no doubt that she needs someone with experience but with the right new owner she’ll make a loyal and loving pet.”

The sanctuary say Meecha is house trained, enjoys the sunshine and travels well in a car.

Quiet and loving, Meecha can live with older children but is looking for a home without other dogs or cats.

National Pet Month runs from April 1 to May 2 and offers the nation a chance to celebrate the wonderful impact pets have on our lives and reminds us of how important it is for us to provide the very best levels of care for our pets.

If you think you could give Meecha the forever home she deserves, contact Clymping Dog Sanctuary on 01903 883116 or email [email protected] for more information.

Clymping Dog Sanctuary aims to find new homes for stray or unwanted dogs, making sure they are properly cared for in the meantime.

The sanctuary, located on Ford Road, close to Ford railway station, was started in 1950s by Mrs Kathleen Grellier.

The sanctuary’s policy is never to put a clinically healthy dog down, which means it sometimes has long term stayers until the right owner comes along.
