NORMA MUNDY & LEXIE MUNDY
Norma passed away 18.04.2015. She was the cherished Mum of Debbie our Founder and Judy our Committee Member, but most of all she was the strength and advise behind Debbie helping with a lot of rescue decisions. She loved and adored every dog that came through the MP doors. They were her family too. Norma was referred to and will be remembered as “NanaMP”. She will be so deeply missed, but now looking after all our furbabies in heaven.
Lexie, Norma’s beloved Jack Russell terrier that became her soul mate and shadow after the passing of her husband in 2000 became an angel on 24.12.2015 after being such a courageous and strong patient of heart disease for 9 years. She lived every moment to the full, she was a little ratbag and had Nana wrapped around her paw. She watched many foster doggies come and go and was a dedicated and loving companion. Now they are both reunited after 8 months apart.
Lokie was rescued by Moving Paws on 28.07.13 and found his loving furever home with Mama, Rita. He passed to the rainbow bridge on 19.02.14 – he was a gorgeous musketeer who was fostered by Debbie and adored by all who met him. He was the first Moving Paws rescue dog to cross over.

Harry came to MP on 12.05.14 from Hawkesbury Pound NSW, he was just a small 3.5kg little boy (he should have been around 6kg), he had a lovely disposition and was such a sweet natured boy, but unfortunately he had so much going on in his small body. He fought hard and with the help of SA Vetinary Referrals we did everything possible to keep Harry alive but it was all too much. He passed to the bridge on 19.05.14
Buddy was 5 years old – he was MP forever doggy that lived at HQ. He was a darling. He loved nothing more than to play with his toys – the more the better! He was a timid, loving soul that was truly adored. He went to the vet for a routine procedure, but due to unforseen circumstances our boy did not pull through, he was needed at a higher level and passed to the rainbow bridge on 22.05.14
Tazzy came into MP care on 22.12.2014. He was surrendered by his owners with his best mate, Snowie. It wasn’t long before we realised Taz had heart failure as was not a candidate for adoption. He and Snowie were to remain MP Furever Doggies. Taz had x-rays, an ECG and was placed on medication to assist him live a comfortable retirement. He adored his new life, constantly wagging his tail. We lost darling Taz to the rainbow bridge on 10.03.2015 when his heart finally failed.
Henry was one of our first interstate rescues. He was rescued from Hawkesbury Pound NSW on 08.03.12. He had been reported missing by his family 12 months earlier, when they receive the call that Henry had been found they no longer wanted him. Moving Paws jumped at the chance to help this delightful boy. He came to HQ and there he was the soothing soul, he calmed each rescue dog that entered through the doors, Nanna MP said he was not to be re-homed, he had found his furever home and his calling. He was the most loving, caring and soft soul we have had the pleasure to help. He was truly loved and adored by all who met him. Henry passed on 03.06.15 with a very quick and rapid onset of renal failure. He is truly missed.
Eddie was one of Moving Paws first rescues. He was rescued from Renbury Farm NSW on 9th December, 2011. He was fostered by our member, Judy where she instantly fell in love and Eddie found his furever home.
Eddie had a lot of ailments, blindness, ear infections from poor ownership, but this never deterred him, he was the softest, quietist little soul and spent his retirement in comfort being loved and adored. Eddie passed to the rainbow bridge on 06.09.2015 surrounded by love. Run free sweet boy.
Dear Diesel – to become known as “Cheesy Diesel” come into MP care on 16.1.14 as a private rehoming.

He was adopted on 8.3.14 and lived a wonderful retirement in the care of Maryann and Harry. Our dear boy passed on 21.10.15 from a heart attack. He will always be remembered as a sweet, loving, caring, patient and adored bubba boy.
Dear Tia came into MP care on 26.7.14 after her dear Dad could no longer care for her. She was a scared, timid girl suffering from fear aggression. She adapted well in foster care but needed added attention so she spent time getting professional training and she had a very dedicate foster mum in Pam who made sure Tia found her reason to blossom. Tia found her furever home with her dear Mum, Roma on 1.4.15 and they shared an exceptionally special bond. Tia began suffering from Addisons disease, but she was such a fighter and with her Mum by her side they fought it together and Tia was doing really well. Late in January 2016 Tia grew complications and her quality of life suffered, her darling Mum made the hard decision to give her one last blessing and give her her wings. Tia crossed the rainbow bridge on 29.1.16. Forever remember, forever in our hearts.
Pippa was rescued from Hawkesbury Pound In January 2013. The moment we saw her rescue photo we named her and booked her flight. She unfortunately was a fear biter and struggled in a busy foster home and we knew she would have trouble being adopted. Nanna MP took Pippa in as a furever dog and gave her the life of a princess. She loved the park, the beach and belly rubs and her smile was a delight. Only her family really knew her and she truly loved her family. Pippa was taken unexpectedly on 30.01.16 at the young age of approximately 11 by an inguinal hernia. We are MP as always were heartbroken. Now reunited with her beloved Nanna.
When Charlie arrived I was so worried as to what his behaviour would be. Worry we need not, he was a polite, adorable and loving boy.
He was re-homed pretty quick to Annie (and her daughter Emma) who had recently lost her husband. He became her shadow. He lived on adorable acreage and had a life every dog deserves. He
crossed to the rainbow bridge on 7th March, 2016 knowing he sincerely mattered and knowing how much he was loved by so many.
It was a pleasure to have fostered you dearest Charlie. Forever loved, forever remembered.
Spikey was rescued from a Mildura pound in July 2014. He was a senior boy with quirky ways but it didn’t take him long in foster care to realise the finer things in life. He found a wonderful retirement with Carmen, Tibor and furbro, Jacko and lived the beachside lifestyle where he was pampered and adored. We were lucky enough to remain in contact with Spike through our holiday care program where he visited when his folks were away. Spikey had dementia and it was being managed well and he always had quality of life. Unfortunately on 16th June 2016, while holidaying at HQ, Spikey passed away peacefully surrounded by the senior pack. You were a special boy Spikey; never to be forgotten.
Darling Molly came to MP on 5.4.16 when her dear Mumma passed away. Molly was with family that could no longer keep her. From the moment we met her, we loved her! She had one eye and after a vet check we found her teeth needed a good clean and she was suffering from a grade 3 heart murmur, but the life this doggy had was unbelievable, a heart of gold! She settled in really well at HQ and had no issues with other doggies. She began heart medication and we monitored her closely before she headed off to her furever home who were patiently waiting in the wings! on 22.5.16 she moved in with her beloved family, The Scorgies. They adored her as did her fursister, Poppy. We got weekly updates and we smiled at everyone. This gal got cuddles, beach walks, fine food, lots of love and tlc. We could not have wished for a better outcome. Unfortunately her heart condition worsened very quickly and on 22.7.16 Molly crossed to the rainbow bridge surrounded by her devoted family and myself (I was blessed the family allowed me to say goodbye). Mols you will be furever remembered sweet one.
Moving Paws Inc rescued dear Bart from the Geelong Animal Shelter on 23.1.13, he was found as a stray on 28.12.12. He was fostered by my sister, Judy and quickly officially adopted. He was a kind, quiet, loving and adorable little munchkin that was loved by all, on the 17th August 2016 it was his time to be re-united with his brother, Eddie at the rainbow bridge. He fought hard to stay with us, but he is now in peace after receiving nothing but a royal retirement where he wanted for nothing. He was adored unconditionally. We are left with another set of paw print on our hearts, but also wonderful memories of a darling boy that bought so much joy to his home and family.
Ellie came into MP care on 4.5.13 when her family downsized and could not take her with them. She was such a well adjusted doggy who just loved life and everyone could see that, hence it only took 1 week for her to find her furever home with Sue. She was loved, adored and cherished and everyone that met her, loved her. She was truly part of the family and lived a wonderful retirement. Life had other plans for our sweet girl as she was diagnosed with a very rare liver/skin disease, but like everything she took it in her stride. Her time came on 29.7.16 and our dearest Ellie grew her wings. You will be forever loved and remembered sweet girl.

He was a quiet, gentle boy who was a pleasure to have in the home. Ollie did get dementia but we worked through that and he enjoyed his potters in the park and lots of snoozing time.

He as never far away, always by your feet wanting to be part of the action, we got his dementia under control, he has some nasal issues that had a few surgeries, but his main ailment was his untreated arthritis. He was on high dose pain killers and lots of natural treatments, but it never really slowed him down, he always tried so hard to keep up. His trips to the park he adored!
