The Summer rush is here!

Summer holidays are always just as busy for rescues as Christmas. Although it’s not obvious why that is the case, we think part of the reason could be that some owners literally discard their dogs while they go away on holiday. It is something that we need to be ready to respond to every year.

The Big Cheese, Caerphilly - Sat 25th and Sun 26th July

We will be having a stall at The Big Cheese on both Saturday and Sunday, 25th and 26th July. This is a great annual event in the middle of Caerphilly and is really popular with residents and visitors alike. 

Volunteers are needed to help us with our stall as it can get very busy. We also need doggie deli bakers as this is always very popular and we can easily sell out! 

Good News from Jewson

Hope Rescue has been awarded a grant of £1,000 for its Community Shop project from the Jewson Building Better Communities fund. The award also includes a new kitchen from Symphony, one of Jewson’s suppliers.

Hope Rescue was short-listed as a regional finalist and grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 were on offer with 63 worthy projects across the country making it onto the short list.

Summer Fun Dogs Shows

Please support our summer Fun Dog Shows and help us to raise much-needed funds. All of these events are great fun for the family and there will be stalls and other attractions - so something for everyone!

Come rain or shine we need to make these shows a real success and they are an important part of our fundraising. It would be great to see you all there!

If you would like to volunteer to help at any of these shows, please get in touch with us on

Thank You - Support Adoption for Pets

A big  vote of thanks goes to Support Adoption for Pets and Pets At Home Newport for nominating us for their Spring Fundraising Drive.

We were delighted to collect a cheque for an amazing £1,162 which was a lovely surprise.
