'Spotted' Community club together to get Suzi home

Suzi is able to return home thanks to kind donations made by community
(Last Updated On: January 2, 2015)

Suzi the dog is back with her owner tonight thanks to kind hearted people on the community Facebook page Spotted Torquay.

Suzi went missing on New Years Eve in Chelston, Torquay. Her owner, Guy Thorn asked Spotted Torquay to post asking for information on her whereabouts. The page has been very successful in reuniting dogs with their owners in a short time.



Someone commented on the post that they had found Suzi near the beach and the dog was then taken to local Kennels. Unfortunately there was not to be a happy reunion just yet.

The release fee was £170 plus VAT says Guy, something he was unable to pay. Suzi was stuck at the kennels.

Guy updated the Community on Spotted, saying:

“Update on Suzi. She was found and taken to kennel, Suzi has a micro chip however now I’m told she needed to have collar tag as well. Could all dog owners be sure their pets have collar tags.
I have just lost my dog now as do not have£170+vat release fee. Kind of harsh as vet assured me the micro-chip meant she would be returnd before going to kennel. Thanks for helping find her the other day,”

But it didn’t end there, people were quick to offer to donate to help Suzi return home.

Keith Byron, a local business man offered £50 and invited people to drop money in to his shop on Union Street, Torquay or send it to him by Paypal. Within minutes, £80 was raised and the donations kept coming.

Keith posted:
“I will donate £50 come on people of Torquay , between us let’s get Suzy back .
