Paws for Tea

Our charity shop in Pontypridd is doing really well and is now benefiting from our very own in-store dog friendly cafe.

So why not pop in with your dog, browse in store and stop for a drink and a snack? We've got some lovely locally made cakes and a range of delicious treats for your dog too. Our doggie ice-cream is proving to be especially popular! You can find us at 77 Taff Street in the centre of Pontypridd. Our cafe is open Monday to Saturday from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm.

Hope Rescue @The Big Cheese - Saturday 29 & Sunday 30 July

The Big Cheese, an extravaganza of street entertainers, music, dance and a fantastic cheese market, is set in the shadows of one of Europe’s largest castles in Caerphilly. Hope Rescue has a stall over the Big Cheese weekend, so please come along to say hello and support us in raising funds for dogs in need.

The Big Cheese weekend is a FREE event and over 80,000 people are expected this year. There will be something for every member of the family. 

Puppy Newspaper Appeal

Our Cocker Spaniel puppies are growing bigger every day and are now on solid food. The inevitable result of this means that we need donations of old newspapers to line the kennel floors. This not only helps us to keep them all clean, but is a hygienic way of picking up the poop!

If you can help, you can drop the newspapers off at our centre in Llanharan, South Wales from 12 pm to 4 pm every day except Wednesday.

The address is:

Tinned Dog Food Appeal

We are in urgent need of tinned food for our rescue dogs to supplement their dry food. 

There are three ways you can help:

1. You can purchase tinned food from our Amazon wishlist where we have listed some good value multipacks. This will then be delivered directly to the rescue centre.
