We will be asking people to donate to fill an empty tummy for another week at Branksome Pets at Home.

Please do come down to meet the dogs and support the Rescue.

We are also very much in need of volunteers to hand out flyers and chat to the customers about the Rescue.

Geri has now found a home !!

progress update: 26/05/2019

Geri helping Pat and Frankie raise money at Pets at Home.
Here she is with Ben getting up and close to the treats on the counter.

Teri or Geri as we have been calling her is about two years old.
She loves other dogs and today was at Pets at Home helping us fundraising.
Enjoyed her few hours there meeting people, dogs and children and especially the treats she was given.
Quite surprised she is not twice the size she was!!
She puts up with Rose and Chase jumping on her to play and is a really nice girl.

Lurchy the lurcher (a.k.a Ed)

Lurchy needs a home!!

progress update from Kelly: 26/05/2019

Ed the lurcher has a whole new image! He has been with my gang for a while and is now ready for his forever home.
Unfortunately he is very fearful of other dogs when out and about, and shows this by barking and pulling on the lead.
He has been to a 2 day dog reactivity workshop, and we are attending updates to continue his training.
He has improved immensely, but is not completely ‘fixed’. Therefore he needs an experienced patient owner that will continue with this.
Part of his make over is a new name, which has become Lurch, or Lurchy, which he loves and is very responsive to.
Despite his fearfulness he has many good points that totally outweigh the negative.
He is an absolute gentleman in the house, 100% clean, crate trained, well mannered and generally a very polite, calm, cheerful boy.
He loves playing with my dogs or happily amuses himself with toys.
He is a typical sighthound that will happily snooze the day away on the sofa after a short burst of exercise or play.
Lurch is approximately 3 yers old, vaccinated, neutered and in good health!
He seems to get a lot of confidence from my own dogs, so would probably like dog company in his new home, but absolutely no small furries.
He enjoys rural walks where he has space from other dogs, but would not enjoy busy residential areas at this time.

If you think you can offer Lurchy a 5 star forever sofa

please call Helen on 01202 380467

Phone calls & messages are usually only taken during office hours Mon – Sat.

Emails and Facebook messages can usually only be responded to within 3 days,

so please be patient if you don’t get an answer straight away:

Helen is often too busy to explain how busy she is!

We usually only rehome within approx. 50 miles of the Bournemouth / Poole area
so that we can ensure the continued well-being of the dogs in our care.
We will only rehome further afield if the homes are exceptional.
We are NOT looking for just ANY home that is offered.
All potential homes will be assessed to try and ensure the best possible home
to cater for the differing needs of each individual dog that we rescue

Foxy has now found a home !!

Foxy has come from same home as Picnic, Oakley and Pippa.

He is a little nervous, yaps a little, loves to walk and you can stroke him all day.
Loves to lick you too.
He will bark near the door to let you know he wants to go to the toilet.
Foxy has settled in well at the Rescue and gets on well with the other dogs.
He is intelligent and you can see him thinking things out.

Five fox cubs!

Updated April 13, 2019 Categories: foxes and fox cubs.

I am sorry that we have a been a bit tardy in answering messages by phone or email but it is that time of the year again and have been hand rearing these lovelies.
They have been on 24 hour 1 and 2 hour feeds and now up to 3 hour feeds during the day and will go longer at night.

Normal service will be resumed once they are weaned.
