Dogs of
Meet Ozzy! JAKE

Meet the adorable Jake who came into rescue as a stray and unfortunately his owner did not want him back.

He would benefit from a little more work on the lead but is coming on in leaps and bounds. 

Loves people and seems good with other dogs when walking around the fields.

Jake's recall is coming along well and he is walked by all our volunteers. 

Not cat tested and no children under 5 years
If you think you can offer Jake the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on

No end of people show their kindness and support in so many different ways.
The latest is the kindness shown once again by
Tamara and Chris
who fostered our lovely boy
, they held an
Wedding Anniversary Dance
to celebrate years of happiness together and so kindly donated
which was raised on their special day plus Chris's mom has sent us
too, words fail me... there will never be words to express just how humbled we are at your kindness,
Tamara and Chris and Chris's mom, we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts xxx

the Month!
Meet Rex!
APPROX 12-18 Months

Barney is an energetic boy who is a typical young dog! 

He is quite boisterous so will need someone who will be firm and consistent, as he can be a handful. 

Barney loves to play and has bundles of energy, so will need an active family, he would need to be the only dog in the home and has been around children.
Barney sometimes forgets his manners when on the lead, so lead training will be advisable, however, he has so much potential and all he needs is someone to help him along the way. 

If you think you can offer Barney the home he so deserves, please contact the kennels on
01299 269 181
Thank you!
