‘Tilly’ came into safe Beds through the saddest of circumstances.
We received a call from Tas Police to say an elderly person had passed away at home and that there was a generously sized labrador dog left behind.
Our Safe Beds transporter in the north of the state leapt into action and was at the East Devonport property within an hour.
We were met by a distraught accommodation manager who informed us that there were no next of kin to call on for help, they were understandably shaken from the loss and worried for Tilly’s future.
Tilly was quite overweight, with arthritis. She was an old girl at 14 years of age.
We knew we could not rehome her as she needed ongoing vet care.
We found her a forever-foster home and continue to raise money to ensure that her care is ongoing.
She has lost some weight and even walks daily with her human and animal friends.
She is in the best possible place to enjoy the rest of her life.
From her foster carer-
“Tilly has a tragic story - but it does not define her. Her foster carers fall asleep to her gentle snoring of a night, and are awoken to her enthusiastic tail wagging in the morning. She has revealed her loyal and sassy personality to them over time, choosing when she does and does not respond to them calling her name to come in from morning sniffs.
Her foster carers feel a responsibility to making sure her last years are filled with love and treats, and feel so lucky to be a part of her life.”
If this program is of value to you- please donate. Even $10 makes a difference to the lives of the animals in our care.

'Benji' and his humans were reunited for Christmas.
Benji's Safe Beds story.
A Safe Beds application was received from a family violence case manager for Benji on behalf of his human (Sally) who had been sleeping rough with her children after fleeing domestic abuse.
Sally did not know that there was a program specially set up just for her circumstances.
We had done our research and understood that there were too many people like Sally, staying in dangerous and violent homes because they did not see a pathway to safety for themselves, their children and their companion animals.
Sally moved into a women's shelter with her children, and we took care of Benji. We have all read the news items about the lack of social housing and the increase in housing insecurity. These factors affected the family because Benji was in our care for many months, whilst they waited for housing. Their caseworker informed us that the people who suffered the most were the children, whose mental health deteriorated without their treasured pet.
But on a joyful day in December 2023, the family were reunited with Benji in their new home.
That's why we do what we do, and we thank you all for your support for this program.

Casper is characterized by his outgoing and confident nature. He is always eager to explore new surroundings and meet new people. With his friendly disposition, Casper would be the perfect companion for an active and social household.
One of Casper's favorite activities is indulging in a good sprint. Despite his usual laid-back demeanor, when given the opportunity, this athletic pup can go from couch potato to speed racer in no time.
He would greatly benefit from a home with a well fenced backyard or a safe place where he can stretch his long legs and enjoy regular exercise.
However, Casper does have one small requirement when it comes to his new home: no cats or small animals. Due to his instinctual prey drive.
On the bright side, Casper would thrive in a home with another dog of similar size. Having a companion to share his love for playtime and relaxation would greatly enrich his life. Whether it's going for long walks or enjoying a cozy nap together, Casper would love to have a best friend by his side.
In terms of daily routine, Casper is a low-maintenance dog. He adapts well to a laid-back lifestyle and is content spending most of his time relaxing. Casper will most likely occupy his favorite spot on the couch while you watch TV or read a book, providing you with unwavering companionship.
If you are looking for a loyal and affectionate companion who will appreciate the simple joys of life, Casper is the perfect match for you. With his outgoing personality and love for a good sprint, he will bring joy and laughter to your home. Get ready to embark on exciting adventures and create lasting memories with this remarkable ex-racing Greyhound.
f you're an experienced and understanding individual or family searching for an active and affectionate Greyhound like me, I could be the perfect match for you. Please complete the form below to meet me!
We ask for a one-month "foster to adopt" period, giving us all time to ensure that this greyhound can adapt to your home. When adopting a greyhound from RSPCA Tasmania, you will receive a special orange collar, which has your dog's unique number on it. Please make sure your grey wears that collar when visiting a special greyhound off-leash area, located in Kingsborough and Launceston, or just out and about for a walk. ... See MoreSee Less
Lolly is still with us!
She is a super sweet cat who was brought to the RSPCA as a stray and who is now ready to find her forever home.
You might notice Lolly is missing her tail - she's a Manx cat and was born with only half a tail. She can still zip around her bedroom just fine, and she is just as beautiful without it.
Lolly just loves people, especially when they give her chin rubs. As soon as she spots someone she thinks might give her attention she starts laying on the charm, rubbing on everything, slow blinking and acting as cute as possible.
She can be a bit nervous in a new place, but with lots of encouragement and some yummy food, she quickly adjusts and goes back to her usual happy self in no time.
Lolly would suit any household who can give her all the time and affection she so desperately wants.
If you think your family could be the perfect fit for miss Lolly, drop in to our Launceston ARC to meet her.
We estimate Lolly to be around 8 months old 💚💙❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
