Please remember that most rescue dogs can be stressed by the changes in their life and the kennel environment, as a result they may behave out of character not only here at the centre but for some time after leaving.
We will do our best to ensure nothing untoward happens during the introductions if any dog. In the interests of your safety and the dogs welfare, please observe all the instructions and advice given by staff during your time at the rescue centre.
Please read the advice on Kennel Cough, especially if you are bringing your own dog with you

We will contact those who we wish to discuss adoption with further when we have sufficient applications. The website will be updated once we have found a new home. Please note that due to the current situation, the rehoming process we are having to follow together with reduced staffing levels makes contacting everyone who is unsuccessful difficult, however, if you wish us to email you should you not be successful then please tick the box below.
Yes please let me know if I'm not successful
