CARE Dog Rescue have new dogs coming in daily.  There are all types, shapes and looks.  We do not get many small dogs, but from time to time small dogs do come along.  So you never know,  your ideal companion may be with us now and looking for a home.

We rehome most of the unclaimed stray dogs  in this area.  We only have a limited time to find a home for these dogs or they may be euthanized by the local authorities.  Therefore if you are even slightly interested in one of these dogs please call us as soon as possible, it just might save a life!

Our Dog Pics

Buda - Podenco X, Male (Neutered), 4 years old, Chipped, Vaccinated, Has Pet Passport, Medium size and around 20kg in weight. Has been blood tested for all diseases and is negative,  Never know a home of his own, He was born in kennels and was put on the kill list due to illness, he was rescued by a lady about a year ago and still has a sensitive stomach so needs hypoallergenic food,  He has always been overlooked for rehoming but is Friendly with both male and female dogs, . He is ok with cats also!!


He is a very affectionate dog, although, understandably, somewhat nervous,  He is friendly towards  other dogs but a little cautious of bigger dogs who have clearly given him a difficult time in kennels.   He is currently lucky enough to live in a foster home where he is learning to walk well on the lead etc.  He does still like to have free access to a crate, which provides him with the security when he needs it,  Buda would definitely be best to share a home with another friendly dog of similar or smaller size.   Given a little time to settle in, he will reward a patient and understanding new adopter with unconditional love and loyalty.


Arriving  26th February

Goldie – Shih Tzu type, Female (Neutered),  2 and a bit  years old, Chipped, Vaccinated, Has Pet Passport,  Has been blood tested for all diseases and is negative,  She found herself abandoned and taken to a Spanish kill station at only 2 years old. So far she hasn’t experienced a lot love from humans and has been bullied by a lot of bigger dogs in the kill shelter too.  She would so love to have a secure and loving forever home of her own, where she is truly loved and respected.  She will return that love tenfold.

Chico - Podenco x, Male (Neutered), About 5 to 6 years old, Vaccinated, Chipped, Has Pet Passport, Very gentle, affectionate and loving dog, will make a super pet.  Chico is about 18 inches (40cm) at the shoulder, He is not Doberman, so don't ask! lol

Chico was brought into the UK and homed by someone else but the new home has several dogs that did not accept Chico and kept attacking him, the owner gave Chico to us to rehome which was the right thing to do, he is a super pet and a lovely gentle dog.

Chico has a deformed right front leg from an injury (who knows what or how painful) which was never seen by a vet, It has healed crooked but he still uses it to a limited degree. He is an affectionate and lovely boy, gentle and faithful, will make a great family pet.

Laurie - Podenca, Female (Neutered), 3 years old,  Vaccinated, Chipped, Has Pet Passport,


 I have already been through quite a lot in my short life and wish I hadn’t.  I was in a place where they starved me and  I got pregnant and had lots of puppies but I never saw them as they were taken away!  I don’t know where they are.  I got quite ill then, but kind people got me out of there and have nursed me back to health,  Now I am REALLY hoping that I will find someone who will give me a home of my very own, where I am loved just for myself.  I am very friendly and, as you can imagine, I have had to live with many dogs at very close quarters.  Will you love me
