DEFRA have approved the Canine and Feline Sector Group (CFSG)  guidelines for rehoming during the COVID-19 lockdown, which we will adhere to. Please contact the rescue in the normal way, but please bear with us as we work through this new process for rehoming.

  Our stocks of blankets, duvets and towels quickly dwindle. We are in need of these soft comforts to put in the dogs’ beds and to help dry them after walks. If you have any to donate (no feathers please!), we would be so grateful if you could drop them off during our opening hours.


Thank you! xxx









 We urgently need newspapers for the dogs. If you have any spare please pop down during our opening hours.

*** Special appeal for hansome Rico *** 

rehoming guidelines



Rico came into our rescue on his first birthday. He had been passed from pillar to post prior to that and has been desperately let down by people.

Rico knows his basic commands and enjoys human company.

He does walk out with calm dogs at the rescue and is not too strong on the lead.

We are looking for an experienced home for Rico as he can mouth when he becomes excited. An adult only home with people who could offer consistent guidance and boundaries would be a great home for him. Rico would be best homed as an only dog at the moment.

Rico is now ready for us to find him the right home. If you think you could offer Rico the chance he needs and provide him with on going life skills then please ringus on 07709 036103.


Please see below videos of this handsome young boy.
