Update from Moose, the American Bulldog needing cancer treatment

Some of you might remember Moose, the 7 year old American Bulldog that came into our care needing your support.

Moose was rescued by the RSPCA and bought into our care 4 months ago. He was rushed to an emergency vet as he was clearly in a bad way. Moose was incredibly emaciated, probably the worst we have seen, and had visible masses on his head and body. His coat was dirty and stained brown on his paws.


Moose spent some time with Vale Vets in Dursley for treatment and extensive tests. The results came back as feared, his 3 masses were confirmed mast cell tumours.


We put out an urgent plea to our wonderful supporters to help get Moose back on the road to recovery. The response was fantastic and enabled us to operate on Moose to remove his tumours. We are so thankful to everyone that donated to make this happen.

Moose recovered in a fantastic foster home with lots of love and care surrounding him. He has a real zest for life and loves nothing more than to chase after his tennis ball.


Unfortunately, after further tests following his operation, we found out that Moose will need chemotherapy treatment. He has already started his treatment and we will continue to keep a close eye on his recovery and ensure this treatment is working for him.


When an animal like Moose arrives with us that needs much more medical attention than an average resident, we rely on extra support from our wonderful community.


SPONSOR MOOSE TODAY… it only takes 60 seconds to make a difference.


Can you sponsor Moose whilst he is in our care for as little as £10 a month?


Sponsoring a resident is one of the best ways you can support CDCH. You will receive a welcome pack from Moose as well as regular updates from him to let you know how he is doing.

This was the condition poor Moose arrived in just 4 months ago.


His condition has improved so much as you can see in the photo below!

We can’t thank our wonderful supporters enough to enable us to give Moose his second chance.
