Upcoming Events

Fun Dog Show at the Machen Show - Sat 2nd Jul

Our annual Fun Dog Show at the Machen Show is always a popular event. There are classes for all dogs, with displays and other attractions. It really is a great day out for all the family, whether on two legs or four.

We always need volunteers to help with our shows, both in the preparation and on the day itself. If you can help, whether you've volunteered for us before or not, please get in touch. Contact our Community Fundraising and Events Manager Linda on

Street Collection - Pontypridd - Sat 18th June

We will be having a street collection on Taff Street, Pontypridd. 

Our Street Collections are a great way to both raise much needed funds, raise awareness of Hope Rescue and our dogs needing forever or foster homes.

We would like as many well socialised foster/adopted dogs as possible to attend, as they really do attract the public to stop to talk, donate and find out more about our work. 

Hope Dog Show @ the Bedwellty Show - 27 August

This year we will be running the Hope Fun Dog Show again at the Bedwellty Agricultural Show. We will also be there with Hope Rescue stalls selling our delicious doggy deli as well as crafts from our Handmade by Hope collection and other doggy items.

Please come along to see us, the dog show is great fun and the show is always a good day out.

If you are able to help us either set up the day before or on the day itself, please get in touch on

Urgent appeal for information


We are appealing for information to help locate the owner of a family of four Yorkshire Terrier dogs that were left at a stables in Abercwmboi, Rhondda Cynon Taf.

Alongside the little dogs there was a handwritten note asking that they be taken care of and giving their names.

Jessie, Sweep, Sooty and Ben were all taken to the local authority pound where they will be kept for seven days before moving into our care.

Big appeal for little Darcy

Darcy is a cute little 6 month old Yorkie pup that has come into our care from our vets. Sadly she had been involved in a road traffic accident with significant injuries to both of her back legs. We were extremely concerned that her legs could not be saved and she would have to be euthanised. But we never give up on a dog without at least trying to help, so we referred her to a specialist orthopaedic vet at Alphavets. Her X-ray results and assessment show that her one leg can be mended with a plate and pins.

We're looking for our forever homes
