Re-homing centres

For those considering getting a dog there are many waggy tails out there looking for loving homes to curl up and rest their paws, and offering a home to a rescue dog can be an extremely fulfilling thing to do; we would love new owners to consider adopting a rescue dog as an option.

Please remember however that animal rehoming centres perform a very challenging and difficult job. They are often staffed by volunteers and rely heavily on donations to feed and care for the animals.

Please consider this when contacting them.
