This year has been the start of an incredible journey for Hope Rescue. We started looking at the possibility of purchasing our own rescue centre in the Spring and in December we received the wonderful news that we had secured all the funding we needed. In addition to that, we were successful with our grant applications to refurbish our charity shop and the work is well underway. We also welcomed new members to our Board of Trustees who are already proving to be invaluable team members.
Nominations are now open for the Petplan & ADCH Animal Charity Awards 2017! The awards celebrate outstanding animal charities and not-for-profit organisations across the UK who go that extra mile to help rescue and rehome animals in need. These awards provide an opportunity to recognise the dedication and commitment of charities and give pet owners a chance to say thank you.
If you think Hope Rescue, our staff and volunteers have gone the extra mile then this is a great way to show your appreciation by nominating them. The categories are:
This is another chance to recognise the hard work of animal charities, their staff and volunteers. The Ceva Animal Welfare Awards celebrate those truly dedicated to the cause of animal welfare who go beyond what is required of them and show true passion for what they do.
We wanted to take this opportunity to share the most amazing news. The team has been working tirelessly behind the scenes on the Rescue Centre project and we can at last tell you that we have done it - Hope Rescue is buying its very own rescue centre!
Did you forget to send a card to someone and think it’s now too late? Don't worry, you still have time to send an “e-card” instead.
Please take a look at the cards you could send electronically and donate the cost of greetings cards to the Hope Rescue dogs. The money will go to our fabulous Rescue Centre project and is a wonderful paperless green solution!
We really do have some wonderful supporters - photographer Edyta Rice has produced a stunning calendar of Welsh landscapes and is donating her profits to us. The calendar would make a lovely gift for someone - or a present for yourself!
Please visit her Facebook page to see the incredible photographs that she has taken for the calendar and place your orders - it will make a great Christmas gift and at the same time will help our dogs.
At this time of year we're all busy writing and posting off lots of Christmas cards so why not try something different and donate the cost of cards and stamps to help Hope Rescue dogs? You can see the cards available here: www.dontsendmeacard.com/ecard/r8DV
As a new feature this year, you can also post e-cards to Facebook and donate the cost of greeting cards to us!
Christmas is fast approaching and at this time of year our wish is to get our kennel dogs into foster to enjoy some of the festive season in a home environment.
If you would like to find out about becoming a Christmas foster home, we would love to hear from you.

We need your help with a big day on Tuesday 29th November - #GivingTuesday.
We’ll be joining thousands of people across the UK who are committing to doing good stuff all on the same day, including some of the UK’s biggest brands, charities and celebrities.
Our temporary charity shop is now open! You can find it in Market Street, Caerphilly (no. 4a) next to Brinsons, opposite the Twyn Community Centre. We will be operating from there while our shop in Pontypridd is being totally refurbished. You can see how our shop in Pontypridd is taking shape here.
