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  
for the sponsorship of one of our kennels
each for 12 months.


We have 3 new arrivals who will be going to the vets tomorrow so I will have photos then.
Summer, a staffy, Toffee & Daisy terriers.

Check out Merlin's snow flake spots, he is sooo handsome!

 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!!

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 consider a Staffy or Staffy cross when looking to adopt a dog, They are always overlooked due to negative portrayal

and due to this sad fact many are left behind in rescues and the stray kennels.

 Despite misconceptions the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a loyal, loving and reliable breed.

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

ROCKY




Rocky is a 4 year old Jack Russell cross (he has the head of a jack russell but the body size of a beagle)
Rocky is calm in the home and fully housetrained. He is a very loving lad, loves to fuss people.
He travels well in the car & was really good in the vets.

Rocky does not like other dogs or cats and can be protective of his owners when out on walks.
Can you give the security that Rocky needs? We will help with training Rocky with his new family.

He can sit and give paw too and knows all his commands . Jarvis is very loving as most staffies are and would make someone a lovely dog.

 He is looking for a forever home where he will have some lovely walks and the love he deserves. 

He is handsome with a wonderful temperament and has been fine around other dogs at the kennels.

Pedro




Pedro is a young crossbreed ( about 18 months)who was due to be PTS last Friday at the stray pound- instead he came to us.
He is a friendly boy, pulls a bit on the lead at first - he's very nosey!
He is really great in the car & was ever so good in the vets.
He is a little underweight at the moment -he's wolfing down everything they give him at the kennels!!
He is very food orientated so we think he will be easily trainable.
(though when he has his main meal he is a bit food aggressive so think he needs a home with no or older children)
He howls a bit ,when he gets bored- so think he may have some husky in the mix.
Pedro has had his full course of vaccinations so can now be walked!!

Chaplin


RESERVED - SUBJECT TO HOMECHECK
Chaplin is the dinkiest dog we've ever had in!!!
He has come from the stray pound where he was due to be PTS this morning -instead he came to us.
He is lovely -very friendly & was very good in the vets.
Chaplin is a little anxious in the car- possibly never been in one.
He also likes his treats so should be easily trained.
Chaplin has only one descended testicle so will need a little operation to sort that out -which RAW will fund.
Chaplin cannot be walked until he's had his full course of vaccinations but can be viewed.

Summer



 Summer is a very friendly Staffordshire Bull Terrier of about 12 months of age.
She came in to us from the stray pound so we don't know any of her history.
(though it is obvious she has had pups in the past!)
She travelled well in the car along with Daisy & Toffee, to us from the pound & to the vets today.
She is only a small girl & will make someone a smashing companion..
Summer can be viewed but cannot be walked until she has had her full course of vaccinations.

to negative portrayal and due to this sad fact many are left behind in rescues and the stray kennels.

Toffee is a small terrier of about 2 years of age.

Toffee is a little shy at first but is very loving when she gets used to you.
She travelled well in the car along with Summer & Daisy, to us from the pound & to the vets today.
She will make someone a lovely pet - could it be your family????

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 fosterer's 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.

PAUL








Paul is a five year old ginger and white moggie who keeps getting overlooked for some reason !. He is a lovable rouge and can be a little unpredictable at times.  He loves to snooze and will take his time to get to know you but once he does he would like a lap to nap on please !!.  He has lived with another cat but doesn't seem too keen on doing it again and definitely does not like the company of dogs.  He is looking for an owner who will accept him on his terms and for the character he is.  He has a strong personality and would thrive in a home environment where he could just be PAUL. He likes company but will let you know when hes had enough.  Could you be the special person to offer Paul a home of his own !!

MAY




May is a gorgeous all black female who is 2 years old.  She had a really bad start in life after being attacked by dogs and not receiving the correct medical attention,  this has not however affected Mays love for life, she is extremely friendly and loving an adores cuddles and snuggles.  She is used to living with other cats and would be perfect for a family with children of any age.  She loves the outdoors but is equally happy to curl up on an available lap for a snooze and a stroke. May wouldn't like a home with dogs but apart from that she will make the perfect companion for someone looking to share their life with her.  Can you give May the home she is searching for , you wont regret it !

PETE








Pete is RAW's ginger and white senior citizen.  We estimate his age to be around 10 to 12 years old but as he came to us as a stray we cant be sure.  Since he has been at our foster home he has grown a little in confidence each day but is a shy lad and is looking for a quiet home where he can spend his "retirement" in peace an comfort with the occasional fuss once he knows you and 2 good meals a day.  He still likes to knock his toy mouse around when no ones looking just to prove theres a kitten in there somewhere !!  Pete needs a home with no young children or dogs he may be ok with other cats.  Please don't dismiss this chap just because of his age he needs a home just as much as his younger feline friends where he can feel safe, loved and settled.

NATASHA





Natasha is an all black, small, short haired female of about 5 years.  She loves catnip toys.  She is very loving, she likes to sit on your knee, by the side of you or lay on your chest when you are watching TV.  She will have a chat to you - especially when she's being fed! she loves her food and will eat just about any wet and dry cat food, she isn't fussy.  She doesn't seem too keen on other cats though so I think she is probably best in a home without other cats, or will probably tolerate another non-dominant cat - but I'm not sure.  She likes to go outside so a garden away from busy roads would be ideal.  She has been spayed and microchip.   She really is a sweet, easy to care for cat and deserves a lovely home.

OSCAR







Oscar is a friendly male brown and white moggie looking for a loving home.  He is 10 years old but still in great health and full of life.  He is very friendly to anyone and every one and he loves attention and cuddles.  He could go with other cats and pets quite happily although he has never lived with a dog before.  Oscar likes to be both inside and outside and is of course fully litterbox trained, although he prefers to go outside.  He is flead and wormed, and as an added bonus Oscar will go to his new home with a " vaccination for life" certificate from his previous owner which means his new owner won't have to pay for his annual boosters for the rest of his life.. He has been neutered and has a microchip so details would just need changing on it.
