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.

Upcoming Events

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.

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.

Barking Mad Week Is Off To A Great Start!

We have some great events and activities over the next week to help us reach our £10,000 target in this, our 10th anniversary year.

Our friends at Bonny Graphics have designed hoodies, sweatshirts and t shirts that are bound to appeal to everyone. They have very generously offered to donate 30% of the profits to our Barking Mad Week 10th anniversary fund!

So why not treat yourself or buy something as a present for someone special - they would be great Christmas gifts and you can help the Hope Rescue dogs as well. What could be better? 

We're looking for our forever homes
