Currently being rebuilt with the first phase completed. Dogs Trust are hoping the state of the art facility will help them provide quality care for their canine guests awaiting their special someone.
There are many reasons over 100,000 dogs are resident in dog rescue centres UK from the death of owners, behavioural problems, to cruelty and neglect these poor pooches are desperate to find their forever home. Being a nation of dog lovers it is only natural we have many volunteers and organisations that try their best to help.
There is also increasing numbers of stray and street dogs coming into the UK from European countries like Spain, Romania and other countries where they lead terrible lives and in some cases are killed in their hundreds.
Charities such as Dogs Trust are actively encouraging potential owners to consider adoption instead of purchasing puppies and it can be extremely fulfilling to know you have provided a loving home to a rescue dog.
Whether you are looking for a dog rehoming centre because you are unsure what to do with unwanted dogs or are looking to rehome a dog there are plenty of options. You could check out one of 164 branches of the RSPCA there are throughout the UK or a Dogs Trust rehoming centre, alternatively there are many independent charities that have both adult dogs and puppies for rehoming.
All dog rehoming centres in the UK are either charities or voluntary and have no funding other than donations, therefore even if you are not in a position to offer a home a small donation will be gratefully received.
You could be mistaken for thinking that most dog drop-off centres are full of mongrels, in fact, 25% of residents in any dog rescue centre are pedigrees and you will find the Staffordshire bull terrier being the most common breed found if looking at "dog rescue centres near me."
There is also a common misconception that dogs from shelters suffer from behaviour problems this is not necessarily the case and many of these animals are there through no fault of their own. As with any dog time, patience and consistent training are needed to ensure a well-behaved companion.
So, you have made the difficult decision "I want to rehome my dog" perhaps your circumstances have changed or you are not able to provide the proper care. How do you go about it? Never abandon or dump your pet as it is extremely traumatic for the animal and if you search online for "dog shelters near me" You will find someone who can help.
Private dog rehoming through advertisements online or in the local paper is not advisable unless you can thoroughly check the potential owner and never offer your four-legged friend free of charge, many "free to good home" pets have been obtained as breeding stock for puppy farms, abused, even used as bait for dog-fighting and although most people who reply to these adverts are genuine you cannot be sure and it is not worth taking the risk. If someone can't afford to pay for a dog how can they afford the costs of keeping one?
You can browse through the list below for dog shelters near me or find information on a breed specific charity in your area. Whichever option you choose it is important they are given your pet's history in order for them to provide a suitable home. The dog will also be assessed by a vet and if not done so already, neutered before being put up for rehoming. Most rescue centres for animals will perform a home-check prior to rehoming so you can be assured your canine companion is going to a good home.
If you consult the list below to find "rescue dogs in my area" you won't be disappointed as there are many to choose from and you will know you are providing a much-needed loving home for a dog. You will be able to visit with the family and get to know your chosen pet before taking them home.
The rehoming centre will more than likely carry out a home-check to ensure your home/garden is a safe secure environment for your new four-legged friend and it is important to introduce your new family member to any existing pets to make sure they get along. You will know they have all the necessary vaccinations and are neutered and the cost will be cheaper than buying a pedigree puppy.
Adopting a rescue dog usually costs between £100-£250. You will find both large and small dogs for adoption near me and the rehoming centre will offer advice on which pooch is the most suitable for your family and circumstances for example some dogs can't be rehomed with young children, some need more exercise than others and some may need extra training.
So, there you have it. A comprehensive list if you are looking for animal "rescue centres near me" whether you need to rehome your dog due to unforeseen circumstances or are looking to add a canine companion to your family, wherever you live from Lands End to John O' Groats you will find a dog rehoming centre nearby.
