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.

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.
Our annual DAWG show is not far away!
Can you help?
We need bottles, raffle prizes and auction lots.
Ideas for auction lots – maybe weekends away, restaurant vouchers, garage services, pamper days etc.
If you can help with any of the above, please contact Helen at the Rescue 01202 380467 or Kate 07990 614091

Update on Cyber.
He has come on in leaps and bounds, he is excellent in the car and will not get out until told to.
His coat is in lovely condition and tail has healed well (having been caught in house door accidentally) his recall is good and is improving when playing with another dog (as he never wants to stop playing)
He is very keen to please and understands sit,wait and down.
He is still sometimes nervous in traffic and fireworks frighten him.
He loves to play with any dogs, and indoors plays happily with my Shitsu but if Shitsu thinks he has gone too far will tell Cyber who immediately backs off with tail down.
He is clean in the house and never barks he just wants to please, loves his walks and has just discovered to his great joy, jumping in water.
He does get anxious when left but is only approx 7 months old so is doing extremely well.
Would happily live with another dog.
Ideally a large garden or country home would be perfect for him and of course a very loving family
This is Cyber, a lovely, friendly 5 month old Collie.
He is very thin and is on extra rations for the next couple of weeks.
He gets on fabulously with the other dogs.
He is full of energy and needs some training which he will be getting in his foster home.
More to follow as he settles in
Toby is a Setter mix about 3-4 years old who has not been treated well and as you can see is still very skinny.
He is gobbling up three meals a day at top speed.
Toby is a quick learner and once he knows you is all tail wagging and kisses, it takes a very short time for him to realise that new people are friends.
Lucy is approx a five year old Collie.
She for a short time lived with Toby before coming to the Rescue and helped to build his confidence up.
Lucy is very good with other dogs and likes the attention and fuss.
Lovely girl and now that she has been washed and groomed she looks beautiful and feels a lot better for it.
Thank you to Jackie of Shampoo and Setters who on Saturday picked her and groomed her for the Rescue.
It took five baths to wash the black dirt out of her coat!!
