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!!



VANILLA










Vanilla will be one in April.She was re-homed by RAW last year but unfortunately her owner became ill so she has returned to our care.
She is currently in a foster home.
Vanilla loves long walks with her doggie friends. She is getting better with her recall but sometimes is so engrossed with her friends she takes a little while to come back!!
We are looking for a fit family, with a friend for Vanilla( she loves the company of other dogs) who can carry on her training and give her the exercise she needs.
Michael, Vanilla's foster Dad, regularly takes photos and videos and posts them on our face book page.

Please fill in a form and then Jenny will ring you to arrange a viewing as Vanilla is NOT at the kennels!!
Olive





Due to unforeseen circumstances Olive's prospective owners can't have her now so she is back up for adoption

Olive came into our care from the stray kennels in January.
 Unfortunately she had a bad bout of kennel cough and had to stay in the vets a while.
She is now with fosterer Wayne and he reports that she's a little sweetie pie.
She is about 5-6 years old and is a very dark brindle. She is house trained and very friendly.
She likes nothing better than to curl up beside you on the settee. And she likes to sneak upstairs on the bed!!
She obviously likes her home comforts.
She is very good in the house and hardly ever barks!!

Please fill in a form , then Jenny will contact you to arrange where and when you can visit Olive.
Olive has waited so long , through no fault of her own, for her new home. We desperately want to see her settled.

Olive is the best natured, small staffy girl and will make someone a lovely companion....could it be you???

BLU







Blu is around about 6 years of age and has come from the stray kennels.
She is a very fussy, friendly staffy girl, typical of the breed.
She had been at the stray kennels quite a while so was in danger of PTS.
As you can see from the top pictures, she was a bit excited to be out when we went to the vets.
Blu will need a home with lots of exercise to keep her happy...will that be with you??

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 really enjoyed his muddy walk with Phillip this morning!!

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. He doesn't always like other dogs.
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.

Casper












Casper is only 12 months old and found himself in the stray kennels.
He is a very fussy, friendly boy who doesn't like being left so we are looking for a home with someone around most of the time.
Casper really needs to learn some manners around other dogs- we don't think he has had any training.
He tends to lunge towards other dogs at the moment and some don't really like this.
The services of a trainer will be provided if needed.
Can you give this energetic young boy a chance....he really shouldn't be in rescue!!

Update- Casper ignores other dogs when out walking, walks straight past them and is walking well on the lead.
As you can see from the photo he loves walking out with Natalie and always has a chill out 10 minutes with her!

Nico hasn't had a good start but is eager to learn-could this be with your family???

Polly is about 12 months of age and was saved from being PTS at the pound.

She will make the most loving of companions.
Polly has just started her vaccinations so can be viewed but not walked just yet.
