Volunteer Vacancy - Adoption Manager

Last year was very busy for us, in which we rescued a record breaking 753 dogs, compared with just over 600 in the previous year. Out of this total, we rehomed 120 ourselves, with 39 dogs in foster homes and 32 in kennels at the end of the year. With totals set to rise even more over the coming year, we have decided to introduce some new volunteer roles, the first of which is the Adoption Manager who will help us increase the number of dogs we rehome directly.

Upcoming Events

Caerphilly Medieval Market, Caerphilly - 13th/14th December 2014 (TBC)

We will be having a stall at the Medieval Chrismas Market in Caerphilly this year. This is a great way to both raise much needed funds AND raise awareness of Hope Rescue and our dogs needing forever or foster homes.

We would be grateful for as many volunteers as possible to help out as this type of event really does depend on a good number of volunteers. We will be selling a selection of our items plus doggy deli if anyone can help with baking.

The stall needs to be set up and running for the following times:

Saturday 13 December 9am - 5pm

Meet and Greet, Pets at Home in Cardiff - 29th November 2014

We are looking for volunteers please to help with a collection outside the store (or inside, if the weather is bad). The staff here are very pro Hope Rescue, and are looking forward to our visit, they love seeing the dogs we bring.

Hope Rescue's foster dogs are preferred, or even those that have already been rehomed. Meet and Greets are a wonderful way of getting homeless dogs noticed, and we have lost count of the number of dogs we have re-homed as a direct result of their appearance at an M&G.

#GivingTuesday for Hope Rescue

Hope Rescue will be celebrating #GivingTuesday, on 2nd December, a global day of giving something back. #GivingTuesday is a charitable alternative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, a time for people to kick off the festive period with a day of giving and making a commitment to charity. We are aiming to raise £1,000 on the day and recruit new volunteers who want to make a difference.

Puppy Farm Survivor Roly - Daily Mirror and RSPCA Animal Hero Award Finalist!

Roly, a Hope Rescue Assisted Adoption dog, has been selected as a finalist in the Rescue Animal of the Year category. Roly was nominated because he survived an appalling start to his life, being born in the squalor of a puppy farm in West Wales - if it wasn’t for Hope Rescue, Roly’s life would have ended there before it had barely begun. Since then he has been living with a number of life-limiting conditions but despite everything, he embraces life with spirit and courage.
