Buck was Bear


We adopted Buck (formerly known as Bear) in May 2016.
As you can see on the photo by know he has completely settled within our family.
Best regards,
Nicole and Guido

Ashley, now renamed Amelie

Amelie1 Dear Indya
Please find attached photos of Amelie since she arrived home.
Amelie came to us after having a long wait organised by Sophie.
We had seen her on Facebook in early February while we still lived into the UK and fell in love with her. She sounded a feisty, independent cat and we knew we wanted to give her a home. She was reserved for us and once we arrived in France in April we arranged to meet Sophie in St Emilion to collect her. She had been on a train and was now put in a strange car with strange people. She settled really well for the journey.

Amelie2Once we arrived home after a long journey were worried in case she felt nervous being in a new home. Straight away she seemed relaxed and ‘at home’. She put the two dogs in their place with a hiss, growl and a swift box to their ears!! We put her food, water and litter tray in my bedroom so she knew she had a safe dog free zone. Ever since she arrived she has slept on my bed.
We have a walled garden here and she never goes out of the gate unless one of us is with her, she is definitely a home cat and we love her.
Best wishes


MayaWe adopted Maya on the 24th of May this year and we adore her. Everybody does. 

You can see on the photo she gets on fine with our old lab Bimba. And this photo has been taken on the 26th. She is happy and so are we.

Our gorgeous Buddy

IMG_0058This is our lovely puppy Buddy (previously Choccie Chip) We adopted him from Phoenix in December when he was just 2 months old. He’s now 7 months and we wouldn’t be without him.
He’s settled in so well with our 2 other dogs and 6 cats, everyone loves him! He is our 5 year old daughters best friend, they eat, play and sleep together and everywhere she goes, he comes too!
I’ve attached a few photos of him, I have more on my old phone if you would like them! 
Please give Shelagh and Richard our best wishes and tell them we are so thankful for our amazing little buddy. 
Kind regards
Carly, Matthew and Maisie

Smiling STIF!

STIF 1STIF was still smiling, knowing  he had good friends who helped him to find a new life and to adopt a new family.

Stif has sadly died but at ten years old, he was a prime example of an older dog at risk in the SPA.

Phoenix is committed to protecting the “oldies” and promoting their adoption through the Phoenix Pensioners Scheme which offers a 500€ Veterinary Voucher on their adoption from the SPA.

Keep smiling in doggy heaven, STIF!

STIF on his holidays by the poolPhoenix President, Rik writes,

“My partner in old bones, Stif, and I give our thanks for giving Stif a second chance to finish his days with bounce.

If you are thinking of buying a dog please think first of adoption and then of the satisfaction of giving some care and love to an oldie.

Go boy go!”


We adopted Lola just before Christmas and from the moment she arrived it felt like she had been here forever. She has lost a little more weight and now climbs, runs and plays with no problems. She also lives with two rehomed chickens! Who’d have thought a jack Russell, cat and chickens! I think they know where their bread is buttered!
Kindest regards Lynne

Lakota was Sacha

Here is Lakota (was Sacha) – how adorable are they in their little trailer?! She was adopted about 2 months ago, and totally adored!
20160211_141326“Voici quelques photos de la petite Lakota… qui s’est très bien adaptée à la maison ! Elle a tissé un lien profond avec ma chienne Valkyrie et maintenant, elles sont inséparables ! Je la promène dans la remorque accrochée à mon tricycle en attendant qu’elle soit assez grande pour trotter à côté… Je suis très heureux de l’avoir prise et remercie l’association Phoenix pour la confiance qu’elle a placé en moi.
Amicalement, Rodolphe.”

Bowie (was Scott)

Bowie2Hello Indya,
We adopted Bowie (was Scott) from Hazel (his Foster carer) on 26th January 2016. He is now 4 months old and has settled in very well, he is so much a part of our family that we don’t  know why we didn’t get a dog sooner. He lives with our two children Olivia who is 7 and Reuben 2 and our 2 female cats Pixie and Khan. He has a wonderful nature and is very friendly towards people and dogs alike. He gets a lot of attention wherever we go because of his kind temperament and his fabulous markings. Our only regret is that we didn’t take one of his siblings for an extra play mate for him! He has brought us so much joy.
Many thanks,
Stephen and Candice


image6Here is beautiful Pebble, one of Ulysse’s little ones adoted by Julie, about a month ago:

‘She is a real delight, enjoys exploring – particularly climbing the trees. She loves to snuggle up to our labradoodle Lottie who is glad to have a new friend. They are double trouble and play together all day long! Luckily they both love treats and come racing in when called! We are so glad we adopted her!’

zowieHi Indya
We’ve had Zowie now for just over 2 weeks and he’s settled in as a member of the family !  He’s lively, funny and enjoys his walks.  His appetite is strong and now he’s had his stitches out he runs around like the puppy he is.  He’s a real joy and we’re looking forward to many years of fun.

Attached is one of many photos already taken, as he’s so photogenic 😉
All the best !

Eros (re-named Jacques)

ErosDear Indya
I have had Eros (re-named Jacques) for 3 weeks now and am so pleased I gave him a forever home.  He is an absolute sweetheart and has learned to walk to heel, fetch a ball, sit and stay and has no problem with the change of language!!  We are working on his recall as, once he is off the lead, the Jack Russell brain takes over.  We’ll get there.

Thank you for such a superb pet.
