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!

Please phone CARE Dog Rescue on  01493 653955 to discuss the type of dog you want, so that  we can do our best  to match the right dog to you and your family.
