DAWGdogs Rescue is a non-profit organisation staffed by volunteers.
Every penny raised goes towards the high costs improving the lives of as many dogs as we are able to save.
Our veterinary bills alone run into many thousands of pounds each year, and the costs of feeding, microchipping, sheltering and transporting those in our care are ever rising.
Please make the DAWGdogs a donation if you can.

Rescuers, rescue supporters, and volunteers do not walk on water.
We don't wear capes and tights or leap tall buildings.
We aren't better than anyone else, but we do pursue a cause that we believe makes us better than we were before we started.
We make mistakes; we feel we can't do enough; we go broke; we have too many dogs at home; we rant out of frustration; we lose our tempers and get snappy; we have to reject people sometimes for the good of a dog.
We are not always likeable.
What we do is draining, emotionally, financially, and physically.
Please bear with us and forgive us our flaws, because we are doing work that's bigger than we are.
Thank you to everyone who attended, thank you also to Vanessa the Vicar of Wimborne Minster and to Diann who organised it again this year for the rescue.
An album of photos from the day is here:

Just thought I would share some photos of Harry and Toyah as they settle into their new home!!
As you can see they have quickly settled in and already very part of the family !!
Harry has really come out of himself and is now very relaxed and happy with people and dogs !!
He actually has become quite a Daddies boy !!
Toyah keeps us and Harry entertained all day but really does not like the rain !!
“The princess ” has decided she will NOT go for a walk in the rain and unless desperate is not keen to go out in the garden if it’s wet !!
Harry likes a sleep…. And prefers the sofa or bed if he can get away with it !!
Oh and he has also learned to be a real beagle …. And loves to howl when he gets a scent !!
This is fine except at 5 o’clock one morning when we went for an early stroll !!
Ooooopppps .. Sorry neighbours but it was time to get up anyway !!
All well in the new home !!

Minnie and her puppies have moved back to the Rescue.
Here they all are just arriving.
There are five boys and four girls and their eyes have just opened.
Minnie is the perfect Mum and they are all well fed and kept scrupiously clean by her.
Soon they will be tottering about and one of the girls is already sitting up.

Lilo has settled down since arriving to us after a bad start due to having a nasty tummy bug.
On his final check up with the vet it was discovered that his abdomen is covered in bruises so God only knows what was done to him before he turned up in the dog pound.
He is all up and raring to get off to a new home and new life now.
We think Lilo would quite like being the only big cheese in the house so that he can loll about upside down with his feet in the air getting all the attention.
He gets on very well with other dogs but secretly we know he would like all the best titbits and treats to himself!
Freddie is a three year old Jack Russel Cross who is good with older children and most dogs.
He needs a home where someone is at home most of the time as he doesn’t like to be left for long.
He loves a lot of exercise and being in the garden but also loves nothing more than to snuggle on the sofa for a cuddle.
Freddie is staying in is present home while a home is found for him.
