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.

Strays like Marge need your support

Marge the Terrier, picked up as a stray with her 6-month-old puppy, came into the care of Hope Rescue and it soon became apparent that she was already pregnant again, another tragic victim of irresponsible breeding. Hope’s welfare team wasn’t surprised when no-one came forward to claim her as dogs like Marge are often abandoned just when they need their owners the most. Thanks to Hope Rescue’s team of volunteers, Marge was able move into the comfort of a foster home, where she gave birth to three healthy pups that are now seven weeks old.
