Success Story: Medical Treatment at Cheshire Dogs’ Home Gives Ex-Stray Delilah a New Start

A dog found stray in a very poor state has been re-homed by our Cheshire Home after she spent time at the home receiving vital medical treatment.

Delilah, a black and white saluki cross, was found sadly emaciated and with a serious open wound on her neck, meaning that she needed vital medical treatment before she could be considered for adoption.

After successful treatment and rehabilitation at the Dogs’ Home, Delilah, now re-named Kira, was adopted by Jane and Paul Davies from the Ormskirk area.

“She’s an absolutely wonderful dog, so loving and sweet natured,” says Jane. “She was pretty nervous at first, but she’s been growing in confidence all the time and we’re now getting to see her cheeky side! She’s got a wonderful personality.”

Anna Stansfield, manager at Cheshire Dogs’ Home, says: “This happy ending is a fantastic example of the many dogs who come through our doors needing expensive medical treatment before they can be considered for re-homing.



The medical care, whether it’s tests, operations or a course of treatment, is part of the behind-the-scenes attention that the public don’t necessarily get to see, but it’s a crucial part of our work and it costs a lot of money.

Donations and legacies often go towards medical treatment for dogs like Delilah to get them to the stage where they can be found a forever home, and in so many instances it’s thanks to the kindness of our supporters that neglected, poorly or injured dogs can be brought to the point where they’re ready for adoption.”
