"Beautiful" Bailey finds forever foster home after urgent RSPCA appeal
"We were humbled by the response and reach of people who took the time to read Bailey's story"
A Staffordshire Bull Terrier with multiple cancerous tumours that could not be operated on has found a forever foster home after an urgent appeal by RSPCA Northamptonshire.
The appeal was put out at the start of March to find Bailey a "fun" and "loving" home. The RSPCA said they have now found that home in record time.
An RSPCA spokeswoman said: "In early 2021 we appealed for a long term, end of life, foster home, for the beautiful Bailey.
"We were humbled by the response and reach of people who took the time to read Bailey's story and share - it even made it to ITV news!
"Bailey found his lovely foster home in record time."
The eight-year-old dog's tumours are not affecting his quality of life, according to the RSPCA, and it is in Bailey's best interests to help him continue living, be loved, and looked after in a foster home.
The RSPCA spokeswoman previously said about putting Bailey up for adoption: "This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we want the best future for Bailey, however long that is for him, where he will be showered with lots of love with a foster family."
The spokeswoman added that Bailey's future was secured thanks to donations from local people.
She said: "Our small, independent branch are responsible for raising our own funds to help animals like Bailey. We rely on donations from local people around Northamptonshire.
"If you would like to help animals like Bailey it's as simple as texting. RSPCA to 70560 which will donate £3 per month. This donation will go directly to animals in need in Northamptonshire."
