broken today.

Carol  ·  Jun. 21, 2017

Kassablanca passed peacefully away this morning. we had to stretcher her into the vets because she could no longer stand. i hope her mom is there to greet her on the other side. rest in peace kassa, we loved you.

Daisy passed gently from this world late this afternoon. she was afraid but she tried to be brave. i am so very sorry darling girl.
rest in peace daisy, you were deeply loved too.



I'm sorry this is late but wanted to send my heartfelt sorry for the loss of both Cassa and Daisy. Still remember when I first walked into the room and saw giant Cassa on the couch. I immediately fell in love with how you care for these precious animals. Just like family :)
Hugs to u all ❤️

I am so sorry Carol to hear of the losses of both Daisy and Kassa. I know how much you loved them both. Daisy was a beautiful dog and I feel privileged to have got to know her, albeit on her terms, but that was okay considering her past.

Kassa was a favourite of everyone - staff, volunteers and visitors to Saints. She had a certain grace about her and a loving heart. I can still hear Brenda saying on Sundays “You better walk Kassa, she heard your voice and has been “woofing” ever since” - She was always up for her walks, prancing along like the princess she was and although she was getting weak in her back legs, she was still willing to try. I will miss you on Sundays dear girl but feel so honoured to have known you…..

Oh my god I have no words just tears carol u gave daisy everything you could have she at least got to know love at saints my heart breaks for u and her and kassa was just the sweetest dog ever such tough decisions I don't know where u find the strength my thoughts r with you


Daisy was a good dog who sadly was messed up by a human.
Carol you are so amazing for stepping up for her and many others like her.
Unfortunately not all can come back from the horror they've experienced.
You gave her love and a large circle of people who cared deeply for her.
So thank you for giving her a 2nd chance and for being strong enough to
make the very hard decisions.
RIP dear Daisy


Well this made me cry this morning. So incredibly sorry these decisions had to be made, both lovely dogs but Daisy had such a difficult life. At least she finally felt love at SAINTS and was given a chance for a new life. So difficult living with so many dogs, they must coexist in order for it to work.

RIP Daisy and Kassa, you were loved and have left behind broken hearts.


So sorry to hear this, Carol. You've been through so much in the last couple of weeks. Kassa was a gorgeous, gentle giant of a dog and will be missed by so many. I didn't know Daisy well, but you gave her a loving home and a chance to trust again. Rest peacefully, beautiful girls.


Carol you have a very unique gift, you give where others would turn their back and you stay when others would leave, thank you for being you...............sweet dreams Kassa and Daisy.

Oh my, what a sad day.....sweet Kassa, I just can't imagine the computer room without your gentle, exquisite presence. Such a rare beauty of a dog...inside and out.
....and Daisy....such beauty and turmoil meshed together. Thank you Carol...for giving Daisy every chance to be free and unmeshed.....she knew she was loved ...and that's all that matters.


Carol, i know you loved these two dearly. Im very sorry for your loss.

Seeet dreams Cassa! You were so sweet!

Daisy, I will cherish those beautiful little kisses you finally entrusted me with! I will miss seeing your beautiful happy face helping us in the barn!! You were loved!


Rip Kassa - you were such a lovely girl, rest easy.

Daisy... you were very much loved. I looked forward to my weekends sitting on the barn floor with you litterly wrapped around me craving attention. There is something very special when a dog finally gives you their trust.. and it meant the world to me to be able to show you love. Love you Daisy Duke ❤️❤️


What an awful day. Sweet Kassa 💞
Carol I'm so thankful you gave Daisy a chance to overcome the injustice the world handed her. It was truly beautiful to watch her change over the last several months. Rest in peace pretty girl


This made me weep so instead of crying I am sending prayers up for you Carol that both your heart and your mind are at peace after a couple of the worst days you've had in recent memory.
And prayers too for Daisy that she is now free of the fears that controlled her life here on earth.
