#GivingTuesday – 1st December 2015

The start of December heralds the annual #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving something back. Many retailers in the UK have taken up the idea of Black Friday sales and Cyber Monday online shopping. But #GivingTuesday is a charitable alternative to the start of the Christmas shopping season, a time for people to kick off the festive period with a day of giving and making a commitment to charity.

Barking Mad 2015

Our annual Barking Mad Fun Dog Show is back - bigger and better than ever before!

There are stalls, raffles, Doggy Deli, displays and demonstrations, as well as a bouncy castle for the kids.

Our fun dog show is always popular and entries are all taken on the day. 

Gates open at 10.30 and dog show entries are from 11am. The first class starts at 12 noon in the main show ring.

You can find out more about the work we do and the dogs looking for their foster or forever homes.

Bolt - "Tails" From Kennels

Bolt is a stunning American Bulldog who has the dubious distinction of being Hope Rescue’s longest resident in boarding kennels. His luck has taken a positive turn with the announcement this week that Budget Vets have decided to sponsor Bolt’s kennel. This means that not only will he have the support of this well-known South Wales veterinary group, but it is hoped that the added publicity will help him realise his dream of getting a foster or forever home.

Barking Mad Fundraising Week

A huge Hope Rescue thank you to everyone who supported our Barking Mad fundraising week. There have been so many great activities involving lots of people, both young and old, that we can't begin to say individual thanks to you all. But please take a bow (wow wow) and be assured that you have all helped us to raise much-needed funds.

Christmas Foster Appeal

Do you have space in front of your fire or on a warm comfy sofa this Christmas? Our kennel dogs should really be in loving foster homes, especially over the festive period, and we would really like to hear from you if you can help.

At holiday times we are often facing a shortage of kennel spaces, so it is doubly important to get our dogs into foster homes. This means that we can help more dogs and give them the Christmas they all deserve.

We're looking for our forever homes
