|Very Sad News|
We are very sad to announce the passing of Rebecca Rea or as many of us knew her, as Becky (Becky from Birmingham). Becky was a fosterer, transporter and a loyal supporter of EGLR and joined us shortly after adopting her lurcher called Filch 7 years ago and decided she wanted to help more dogs like him because she always had a soft spot for the long nose variety dogs, owning many of them over the years.
Becky was the type of person that you could always call on in times of an emergency and was always willing to assist anyone, four legged or two, that needed help. She was willing to drive all over the country to fetch a dog in distress and always dragged one of her 3 sons along for the ride.
Over the years Becky fostered many dogs, from young dogs to the elderly (and some of them were very naughty!) but Becky never moaned or complained. All she wanted was to look after them and find them the best home possible.
Her family have very generously and kindly requested that donations to be made to EGLR instead of flowers at her funeral.
Becky leaves behind her husband Dan, her 3 sons Will, Sean and Ed and her 2 EGLR dogs Bear and Filch. Our thoughts are with them at this sad time.
