DOG RESCUE

To view a dog you must first make an appointment.

01226 298271

All our dogs are vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered & wormed.
Vouchers are issued if we haven't done these before they go to their new homes.
The adoption fee covers some of these costs- the rest is covered by fund raising.
 
Any dog that comes from the stray kennels will undergo a period of quarantine to make sure that they go to their new homes as fit & healthy as possible.

We are grateful to Pets At Home, the Animal Rescue Foundation & the Kennel Club  
for the sponsorship of one of our kennels
each for 12 months.
 

Merlin

Check out Merlin's snow flake spots, he is sooo handsome!
Merlin having a good stretch at the bottom of the stairs!

 Merlin is currently staying in a foster home. To view him please call or email us.
Merlin is a 4 year old greyhound who has come into our care from the stray kennels.
Merlin is great with kids and is currently living happily with a medium/large dog in his foster home.
He has a lovely temperament and is extremely gentle.
Merlin is naughty with small dogs (wanting to chase).
This is likely due to him been an ex-racing greyhound where he has been trained to chase small animals.
Merlin is fantastic with medium size dogs and above.
Merlin has been to summer gala's with his fosterers and behaved well in the big crowd.
He travels well in the car and behaves well at the vets.
Merlin is black with little flecks of white in his coat - it looks as if he has snowflakes on him!!
(you can just see them on his picture)

POPPY








Poppy is an 18 month old Staffy cross who never stops wagging her tail.
She is very loving and enjoys cuddles and sloppy kisses.
She is house trained and sleeps quietly at night.
Poppy is strong on the lead, but walks very well when using a halti.
She is understandably extremely excited when coming out of her kennel for walks, but is calm in her kennel and in a home.
Poppy would need to be the only pet in her new home.

Please give Poppy a chance- she has been overlooked for so long now & is really ready to give lots of love to her new family

GEMMA



Gemma has just come into our care. She is approx. 2 years old & has been in a foster home for a few months.
Unfortunately the Rescue that had her disbanded & the fosterer couldn't keep her so she ended up in the pound.
Helping Yorkshire Poundies rescued her & brought her to us. 
She is a lovely, friendly Staffy. She is house trained  & has been spayed.
She has been to the vets for her check up & was so good.
She jumped in the car & sat looking out of the back window- she obviously loves going for a drive!
Gemma is only a small staffy -she looks a lot bigger on her photo's.
She will make a marvelous pet for her lucky new owners.-could that be you??

Benny


Please play with my tug toy...

ooohhh. tickle my tummy.......
Please adopt me :-(

Benny has just come from the stray pound where he was due to be PTS.
He is a very loving Staffordshire Bull Terrier of about 12 months of age.
He is very friendly & travelled well in the car. He was friendly with another Raw dog who went to the vets with him.
Benny is adorable and never stops wagging his tail.
He loves to play with tuggers & threw it around the cage in the car!!!
Benny is a typical 'full on' staffy- he is adorable.
We are looking for an active family for Benny - you'll certainly get fit if you adopt Benny!!!

Gizmo



Gizmo is a 3 year old GSD X Labrador who has come into our care because his owner is ill
& can no longer look after him. He is a really friendly boy who knows some basic commands but will need further lead training.
He is so nosey - he just pulls to smell at things & is very strong.
Gizmo likes to play ball- and will chase after other dogs balls too!!!
He was very good in the car- jumped straight in (last photo!).
He hasn't been used to young children so , because of his lively nature, we are looking for a home with older children. 
Gizmo is already to go - can you give him the love he deserves???

BEN



 Ben is a Patterdale of about 5-6 years of age.
He originally was homed by RAW but his owner is ill and unfortunately cannot take care of him.
He was very good in the car & at the vets -he was giving paw to everyone !!
Ben is really good with other dogs - especially big dogs ( his best friend was a collie).
He is house trained & very affectionate. He would enjoy getting back into the routine of long walks.

Can you give Ben the home he deserves - I would  love to be able to tell his previous owner he has a new home!!

Skye




Skye is a 8 months old Blue Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
She is very friendly, enjoys a tummy tickle, gives sloppy kisses and loves a fuss.
Skye has had little to no training in her life and so still displays puppy behaviours which have never been addressed including jumping up and mouthing.
Due to this Skye would need a home where any children are older.
Skye travels well in a car.
Skye is a smashing girl who hasn't had the best start in life.
She will make someone a great pet -can you give her the love she deserves?

CAT RESCUE

All of our cats are in foster homes.
For further details please contact Sharon at 
                                      

 
Daisy & Dotty

 
'ok- this is me having a little snuggle of an evening'
 
'don't tell my sister I'm sleeping with the enemy!!!'
 
'another favourite place, on the stairs -you never know who I might trip up!!-haha '
 
 
'my sister thinks she's gunna be the next Mrs Mills, though I don't know who that is -Kathleen our foster mum knows !'
 
 
'if I roll about on the floor perhaps I'll get some food'
 
 
'oooh-she also sleeps with the enemy!'
 
 
'Kathleen, our foster Mum has bought camouflage blinds, especially for us!!

 Dotty and Daisy are sisters and will be 2 years old this July.  

They were born in the cattery in RAW'S care and mum found a home really quickly leaving the 2 girls still searching!  

We are looking for a very special person/family to take care of Dotty and Daisy as they are very shy and timid and don’t really like human contact.

 They have been at our fosterers a long time now and get on really well with the 2 dogs she has, cleaning their ears and sitting with the dogs too.

 These two girls need to be re-homed together and would be best suited to a quiet household

with no small children where they would be left to their own devises.  

Dotty and Daisy will need an owner with lots of patience and a willingness to let them settle in at their own pace. 

 If you think you could offer all that to our longest serving residents please give us a call.

SUBO









RESERVED


Subo is a  big, beautiful boy of around 5 years old.  He came to us after someone dumped him in Barnsley.  How anyone could not want this guy is beyond us he is extremely friendly and is always the first one to greet Dawn  when she goes in to see him.  He loves to be stoked, fussed over and cuddled and we think he deserves it !!  He is used to living with at least one other cat as Liz was dumped with him, not sure how  he is with dogs but he seems very laid back, calm, confident and sociable, Subo would be fine with children of any age and would make a perfect family pet.  Can you offer endless stokes and cuddles to this big softie !!
Please go to our face book page to see a video of Subo.

For more information please leave a message & phone number on 01226 298271



LIZ








RESERVED

Liz is a gorgeous Tabby girl of around 5 years old.  She was dumped with Subo and again we cant imagine why as she is loving,affectionate and is eager to please whoever is in with her.  She lets Subo go first for cuddles so he thinks hes the boss but soon follows for kisses and snuggles.  She gets on with other cats and again would be fine with children of any age.  Liz would love a home to call her own and a bed to snuggle up in, can you make her day ! Please see Liz on video on our face book page.

For more information please leave a message & phone number on 01226 298271


ROSIE





Rosie is a very pretty, pale ginger and white girl who is 1 year old.  She is quite shy and timid at first and will need time to settle in and get used to her new human best friend.  She has been with us around a month now and is gaining confidence each day.  All this little lady needs is time to adapt. She has been used to living with other cats and would like a quiet home possibly with no dogs.  Can you offer Rosie the chance of happiness she deserves.
