A New Year's Message

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.

Need Last-Minute Christmas Cards?

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!

A Special Gift

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.

Don't Send Cards This Christmas - Help Us Raise Money Instead

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: 

As a new feature this year, you can also post e-cards to Facebook and donate the cost of greeting cards to us!
