"If you have received love from an animal in your life then you are very lucky. Give back a little to this fantastic charity and see what YOU can do to make a huge difference. Love, shelter, healthcare and food. What an amazing gift you can give. Do it today. Thank you so much."

Gus is a Spanish Mastin, he was found at the side of a road. He had been severely beaten and his head was a mass of deep wounds which were crawling with maggots.

He was given vet treatment and although his external wounds continued to heal he was so scared and left with so many internal scars that affected his behaviour that the vet recommended that he be put to sleep.

The people who saved him have worked with us before and knew that we could help so we were asked to take him here at the Sanctuary and of course we agreed.

Welcome home lovely lad, we look forward to seeing you become the happy, confident boy you were meant to be before evil touched you. No more suffering, fear or pain.

Thanks to Angie and the many angels who stood up for you, you are now tucked tightly into the heart of the sanctuary and have already stolen ours x
