During the month of October we are running a Fundraiser called ‘Miles for Milo’, which will be raising money for our veterinary services.
His loving adoptive mum Lena and her children, Freya and Louie, were really touched by the care and support given by Megan, our vet, and her team at the RSPCA Clinic in Colchester. They decided they’d like to do something fantastic to help other local animals in our clinic and preserve the memory of Milo.
For most of Milo’s 10-year life, he was fit and well, but sadly a few months ago, his health deteriorated and he eventually lost his battle against liver disease and cancer in September.
His loving owner Lena and her children, Freya and Louie were really touched by the care and support given by Megan, our vet, and her team at the RSPCA Clinic in Colchester. They decided they’d like to do something fantastic to help other local animals in our clinic and preserve the memory of Milo.
During the month of October, Lena and her family, along with Lena’s sister, Trina, will embark on a walking challenge where they hope to clock up 200 miles and raise £500 for RSPCA Essex Mid & North Branch. They’ll be taking pictures of their walks, some of which will feature their other dog, a little French Bulldog called Lola, and sending these in to us. Please follow our Facebook page to see updates on this and other news.
Megan, the vet said, “Milo was a mild-mannered gentleman, whose kind soul shone
through, and made him an absolute pleasure to treat.” Megan also
spoke about the family’s idea and said “They’re such a lovely bunch. It’s very
warming. The fundraiser, ‘Miles For Milo’, couldn’t be more apt. It expresses the
depth that his owner, Lena, was prepared to go, to offer Milo the best possible care
during his illness. She was ready to go ‘The extra mile’ and made every step count.”
