 Barnsley Building Society on Cheapside has nominated RAW as one of three charities to receive a donation in the near future.

 The amount donated will be determined by public vote, so we are asking for your support if at all possible. This entails calling in to the branch and voting on the paper which will be available at the front of the bank between Monday 9th May and Friday 20th May.

 You do not need to be a member of the Barnsley Building Society to vote, so if you are passing by we would very much appreciate you taking the time to call in and give RAW your support.

    

 

DOGS LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME



Adoption Process
  • Step 1: If you see a dog you like then please make an appointment to meet them.
  • Step 2: Once you have met and decided to adopt a dog a home check will be arranged.
  • Step 3: Once your home check has passed the adoption is then completed and you can pick up your new family member!
Fees & What's Included

Our adoption fees are £130 for dogs and £65 for cats.
All dogs are:
  • Vaccinated
  • Microchipped
  • Neutered
  • Wormed
  • Come with 4 weeks free insurance

If any of the above are not complete upon adoption vouchers covering their full cost will be issued. The adoption fee covers some of these vet costs - the rest is covered by fund raising.

Adoption Requirements
  • A part of your garden must be enclosed and secure. A minimum 4ft fence/wall is required, depending on the size and nature of the dog this may be higher.
  • Dogs can not be left on their own for more than 5 hours on a regular basis.
  • Dogs must not be left to sleep outside at night or during the winter.
  • If we know a dog is friendly with cats this will be specified below. If this is not specified then the dog will not be re-homed with cats.









All our dogs are regularly walked by our band of volunteers!!



FAITH








Faith is a crossbreed of about 3 years of age.
Faith came to us from the stray kennels, she is partially deaf and has been with us for some time.
Faith's hearing does not slow her down in any way, shes just like regular dog who loves walks, cuddles and treats.
She is house trained and seeks attention in the home -which is understandable as she's been in kennels for sooooo long.
(Faith is not destructive when left alone )
 So we are looking for a quiet home with owners who can give Faith the attention & exercise she needs.
She is very loving and playful- can you give Faith the home she deserves?





Ted





Ted has come from the stray pound where his time was up.
He is a Staffy x of about 12 months of age.
He jumped straight into the car to go to the vets & wanted to fuss everyone there!!
Ted could learn a few manners on the lead- he is very strong so will need an owner who can handle him.
( He looks really cute with one ear up & one down..  plus the longest tongue in the world!!!)


This is what Michael, one of our walkers has to say about Ted-
I got to meet Teddy the smiley staffy at the kennels today.
Teddy is a very energetic lad and decided he was talking me for a walk today rather than the other way around.
 Like all good staffys Teddy will cover you in mud whilst offering staffy kisses or try to sit on your lap
 ready for staffy snuggles because that's just how he rolls!
😀

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.

CHESTER




Chester is a crossbreed of approximately 18 months old.
Sadly Chester has not had a good start in life and was recently physically abused by a man with a stick which has resulted in him being nervous of some men until he gets to know them.
Chester is brilliant with females and fabulous with men he knows once they have gained his trust.
Due to this Chester would need a quiet home with no children or other pets.
Please do not be put off by this description Chester genuinely is a fantastic dog who will make the right owners a loving, lifelong companion.

SONNY





(Sonny likes to push his nose through the kennel door)

Sonny is a 3 year old sbt X.
Sonny is a lovely boy and is a big cuddly bundle of energy.
He enjoys long walks with our volunteer Wayne.
Due to his energetic nature we would be looking for a home where any children would need to have reached teenage years.
We are aware that when in a home Sonny was calm, quiet & quick to learn new commands. 
Sonny has been waiting patiently for his new home & will make a loyal & loving pet.

Ruby





Ruby has just arrived from the stray pound where she was handed over by her owner who also 'had no time for her'!
She is a Kelpie  x Collie who is only young and could benefit from some training.
She is very friendly and,once she calms down, walks well on the lead.
She seems ok with children and other dogs.Ruby is smaller than she appears in the photos!
She is a really friendly girl who will make someone a smashing companion.
Can you give Ruby the home she really deserves -you'll be rewarded with plenty of sloppy kisses!!!

BELLE





Belle has been with us for a short time as she is getting used to walking on a lead.
She is only a baby, approximately 8 months old.
She is really friendly and gentle natured.
Belle seems to be ok with other dogs, though she hasn't been far on her walks yet.
She will need an owner with a little patience, to get her walking on her lead with confidence.
She seems a quick learner so this shouldn't take long.

SAM






Sam has also been getting used to walking on the lead and is doing really well.
He is a little shy of strangers at first but with a treat he is soon the best of friends.
( He has barked at a 2 year old so we think he may be better with older children)
Sam is about 12 months of age and will need ongoing training on his lead.
This shouldn't take long as he seems to be a quick learner.

Sadie doesn't look as if she likes her new collar!!

Sadie is a 3 year old Staffy who has come to us from another rescue.
She looks black from the photos but is in fact a very dark brindle.
Sadie is a smaller type staffy, with a very friendly temperament & is a real laid back girl.
She was very friendly with Sonny at the vets and travelled well in the van.
As you can see from the photos, Sadie likes getting in the mud -she'd been out that afternoon with one of the volunteers!!

BLADE



Blade is a JRT of about 7 years of age.
Blade will need a new owner with lots of experience with dogs .....and preferably Jack Russell's!!
Blade wants to be top dog in the home so we would need someone with patience to teach him some manners.
Janice, our trainer will be available to assist any new owners.
But please don't be put off by the description as he can be a very loving , friendly chap but does seem to not like certain dogs.
Blade would probably be best as an only dog as when he lived with 2 other dogs he needed to be the top dog.
Can you provide the stable home life that Blade needs?

Gizmo is nearly 2, he's a border collie cross with boxer and Labrador.  His owners can't cope with him as he's left for long periods of time alone and because of this he's started being destructive.He's fine with other dogs  he chases cats, he has not been neutered, he does live with small children but is clumsy and has knocked them over and occasionally nicked food from there hands so he'd be better round older children. 

He is chipped but not sure if vaccinations are up to date.
