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.
Harry was rescued from a dog pound in the nick of time.
Harry is a two year old Beagle, and quite large for a Beagle.
He has shared a kennel with Hans when he was in Ireland and is sharing bed space with Hans at the Rescue.
At the moment he is settling in and we will write more up about him in a few days.
Ed has come back to the Rescue through sad family circumstances.
Ed is seven years old and is used to living as an only dog.
He is very well trained and gets on very well with people.
He will better in a home without children as he has lived in a quieter home with no children.
At the moment Ed is in kennels and we would love for him to find a home as soon as possible.
This little sausage turned up very early this morning her name is Jessie and she’s the sweetest JRT I have seen
so cuddly and happy will make someone a great best friend.
Little Jessie has scars on her nose as she was kept in a shed and we believe the scars are from putting her head through small holes in the shed
Jessie was rescued from the shed when the owner had said he was going to do away with her.
Hans is a young Terrier somewhere around two years old.
He likes all the people he has met so far and seems to be settling down well.
Tomorrow both he and Harry are off to have their pockets picked at the vets – not so sure what either of them will think of English vets after this.
We will post more about him when he has been with us a few days more.
Max is a three year old German Shepherd who arrived to Ann’s place just skin and bones.
As you can see from this photo Max is now in prime health and looking for a home.
He gets on well with other dogs and as he has been living on a smallholding used to horses, turkeys, chickens and anything else needing a home that finds its way to Ann’s place.

There has been development in Minnie The Minx’s story and that is that she is pregnant so obviously not quite the well behaved girl that she has portrayed herself to be since arriving at the Rescue.
The Minx part of her name is well deserved we think to ourselves !!
Last week she moved into her private Mums to be Home at Linda’s house where she is being waited on hand and foot with her feet up on a stool to help her swollen ankles ( how many busy working Mums to be would love that sort of treatment – sometimes in can be quite a cushy life as a dog )
She was glad to get away from Toyah who seemed to think it was ok to stand on Minnie’s stomach to try and reach that forbidden item put up out of the way !
We keep telling Minnie that in some parts of the world women have their babies in the field and continue working but she says she has done all that before and now plans to take full advantage of the more pleasant surroundings and the servants that adore her.
In a few months she will be ready for a new home and by this time we are sure she will be glad to be off and away from her demanding children after two months of lack of sleep from nightime feeds!

Toyah is better after several weeks at the Rescue and now her hair is growing back thick and fast
She has gone to foster with Angela and her family.
Angela has sent this update :-
My new foster pup, she is about 6 months old and a live wire, this pup will keep you entertained she is so, so, so happy.
She has the floor covered in toys and loves life
more to follow as I get to know her better
Toyah arrived to us a few weeks ago and in a terrible state.
As you can see she is looking a lot better now her hair has grown back and she continues to improve daily.
Toyah is a typical Terrier mix full of life and go get it spirit.
She is just five months old and a tiny tot.
