Beauty, of Farplace Animal Rescue

Over on Twitter, I follow a rescue called Farplace Animal Rescue. (here)

Recently they found a dog abandoned on the moor, the poor girl was starving and trying to eat roadkill.
Farplace took her in and gave her food, medical treatment and love.

They named her Beauty.
She only stayed with them for three weeks, because she was found to be suffering from advanced cancer.
When the time was right, they let her go.

The rescue are fundraising to complete a barn they will name in her memory and this drawing will go in there.

Beauty.

  3. It's stories like this that show that even though there are cruel people out there who would abandon a dog, there are also wonderful people who will do everything they can to help that same dog, that gives me hope. I love this drawing Pat, and what a wonderful cause too.

  8. It's true what Crystal says, thankfully there are those that care and will help as best they can under the circumstances. It is beyond me why there are so many cruel people in this world but I like to think they are in the minority and that the majority of us humans are decent caring people - we just seem to hear more about the badness in our world rather than the good, beautiful drawing and a beautiful tribute

  9. What a lovely painting. It's so sad to hear stories about animals that are abused, neglected or abandoned but it's always heartwarming to hear about them being rescued. Thankfully Beauty was able to cross the bridge in the company of friends and feeling loved

  19. This is a fabulous drawing Pat. Both of my previous dogs have come from rescue shelters after being ill-treated so this heartwarming story is close to my heart.

  21. Hello Pat:) What kind of people get rid of a sick dog? I always get angry reading this kind of things. I'm glad there are such people as you are Pat. At least her last time was better. I can't express myself as I would in Dutck but I hope you know what I mean! Your painting is so beautiful it makes me sad and happy at once. You are a very good person!

  23. Hello dear Pat,
    Every dog lover wishes they could take in every abandoned dog they see but sadly they are too many. Thank God for such wonderful places. I know your painting will look just wonderful in Beauty's Barn.
    Algie is getting quite wilful! He can be a very naughty boy but I adore him and really was quite upset last night.
    Hugs xxx
