Microchip laws have changed and all dogs have to be registered with the keeper as from 6th April.
It will help us tremendously if anyone that has adopted a dog from us changes the details themselves so we are asking that you contact us so we can explain the procedure to you.
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.
You can securely make an online donation using the Paypal button below.
To donate in other ways,
please ring Helen on 01202 380467 or email

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.
Mollie has been the perfect house guest at Lisa’s and is a lovely affectionate dog
Molly was an unclaimed stray.
She is about 2 years old and good with the Labrador that she lives with but not good at all with smaller animals.
Irish Terriers are lively and bossy dogs because they are so intelligent.
If you are not experienced with Terriers then she is probably not the dog for you

Dirk aka Milo enjoying walkies.
We adopted Dirk a few months ago.
He made himself at home immediately and we’ve never looked back…even Roxy loves him (and she hates any other living animal).
We are so lucky to have him in our lives
Bhuna is a golden retriever and has a cream coloured coat.
He is very loving and loves other dogs.
When he is out for a walk he has to say hello to all dogs and really enjoys his walks.
He loves muddy puddles!
You only have to put your arms out and Bhuna will come and give you a cuddle.
He is 3 years old.
Once he had had his walk he will settle and sleep very easily (a bit lazy I think).
He is my best friend and I will miss him so much but due to work commitments I have to rehome him.
Bella is a black Labrador and is 4 years old.
She is very obedient and loves people and other dogs (although she prefers a tennis ball).
Bella will fetch a ball all day long and will come back to you as soon as you call her.
She is very loving and will always want to be the centre of attention.
She settles well after a walk and enjoys being around all human beings!.
Due to work commitments I have to say goodbye to Bella and I will miss her very much.

message from his owner:
Imagine what it would feel like if every single time someone looked at you they smiled and imagine if they held you so close and looked into your eyes and kissed you, even people you’ve never met before.
How would it feel to never have someone dissapointed with you or hurt by you and no one ever raised their voice at you.
If you never had to regret anything or need to say sorry because you never did anything wrong. EVER.
Imagine if every time someone spoke to you they did it in a kind and gentle voice.
If every time someone saw you they looked so happy just by your existence.
Just by your being.
Imagine if you had the power to make even the saddest person happy again, just like that?
How would it feel to be loved like that by everyone all of the time?
That’s how my DOG must feel
Happy 5th birthday to my beautiful friend Ziggy Stardust and thank you Helen and Dawg for finding him.
I am eternally grateful.

Gilly has settled in really well and is coming up to me wanting to be stroked.
It won’t be long before she is completely confident and comfortable.
Gilly pronounced the Irish way with a hard G is very sweet and still very timid.
She let me sit with her and stroke her yesterday and is beginning to come up to me to nose touch my hand.
Very good with the other dogs, quiet and clean in the house.
More to follow as she settles in.

Zak is a fantastic dog.
Great off the lead , wants to play with all the dogs he meets, his tail is constantly wagging with enthusiasm when he meets new people, is clean in the house but a little too keen on meeting cats and rabbits etc so best a home without them.
He has gone to stay with Geoff because Sal and Gilly have come into season and even though he was the perfect Gentleman most of the time sometimes he couldn’t help wanting to show his love a little too much.
He had been with me at the Rescue for three weeks so I was sorry to see him go but a litter of puppies is not what we want!
