Dogs and puppies seized in drugs raid urgently need your help

On 25th July 2018 a total of 180 police officers from South Wales Police, the National Crime Agency, Home Office Immigration, British Transport Police, DWP, trading standards and animal welfare officers were involved in simultaneous raids in Cardiff. More than £100k, knives, adult dogs, puppies, and a number of high-value vehicles were seized. 10 men and one woman have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to supply drugs and money laundering.

Urgent Appeal for Wispa

We were called out to Pyle to pick up a little stray dog found in a distressing condition. We were horrified when we reached her. She was the sweetest little chocolate Patterdale, but was very shut down and shaking with shock and fear. She was covered in weeping and bleeding sores which looked horribly infected. Her coat was a mass of sticky and tangled fur, and her eyes were also infected. This didn't happen overnight and it is clear she has been suffering for a while.

Boarding Kennels at the Hope Rescue Centre

At Hope Rescue we are licensed to board dogs and have a dedicated block of 20 kennels for boarding customers at our centre in Llanharan. The boarding income supports the day to day running costs of our busy rescue centre. After a busy summer we now have vacancies. The boarding charge is £16 per day, or £27 for two dogs sharing (up to Staffie size). The dogs are cared for by our experienced welfare team and are walked daily in our private 18 acre woodland, or can have off-lead exercise in our secure paddock.
