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.

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.
The Gang of Four have arrived……..
Newt, Moss, Fly and Moth are four and a half month old Collies.
They descended on Helen here at the Rescue in a flurry of boundless energy.
Lots of jumping up, tug of war games with toys and a massive scramble for the bowls of food put down for breakfast.
They are a gorgeous bunch of rascals and of course it goes without saying as they are collies that they will need homes with people that are active, patient and prepared for the chewing and training they will need.
Lady was a stray whose owner didn’t want her back.
She is a lovely dog.
Lady is 6 years old and good with other dogs.
She is off to Yvonne’s tomorrow to foster with her and Gino an ex-Dawgdog that lives permanently with Yvonne.
More to follow as she settles in to her foster home.

Rossi is a two year old chocolate brown and white Lurcher
( he looks black in the photos but is a deep brown )
Rossi is fostering with Geoff and his four dogs and getting on well with them.
He is a gentle sort of character but we would say not with cats or small animals
Rossi is just above knee height
Bracken arrived into the Rescue in a horrendous state of neglect.
His skin was sore with scabs under matted hair to the point that the hair on his throat as the scabs fell off had worked its way down to a line of matted hair.
He had an eye infection and his claws were long, all of which meant it was painful for him to walk.
He was kept in a storeroom.
These are the before photos of him:
Thanks to Stella of Always There Pet Care groomers who fitted in grooming him on her weekend.
He is now much more comfortable and enjoying his walks.
Bracken is no trouble at all, a quiet dog who gets on very well with the other dogs.
He had his first off lead walk yesterday at the beach which he loved.
Bracken is three years old.
Leo is a 20 month old Cocker Spaniel who gets on with other dogs.
He is lively and needs some training.
We are looking after him for a rescue friend while she is away.
Any enquiries about him please phone the Rescue and we will pass on your details
