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 £14 per day, or £25 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.
** REWARD NOW £700 **
We are appealing for information about a stray dog found on Rhigos Mountain near Aberdare, on Tuesday afternoon at approximately 1pm. The dog, thought to be a young Mastiff-type breed, was in such an appalling condition that on vet advice, he was put to sleep to end his misery. A reward is being offered of up to £700 for information leading to the identification of the person responsible.
We have three new volunteering opportunities working in our fundraising team.
These roles will report in to our Fundraising Manager and are all based in South Wales. We are looking for the following:
Lead Fundraiser - responsible for generating income through arranging, coordinating and participating in fundraising events and shows.
Static Collections Coordinator - responsible for the income generation through placement, management and promotion of static collection boxes in various locations across the local community.
We are in urgent need of toys, treats and tinned food for our rescue dogs.
There are three ways you can help:
1. You can purchase tinned food from our Amazon wishlist where we have listed some good value items. This will then be delivered directly to the rescue centre.
Are you a dog lover interested in becoming one of our volunteer foster carers? Do you live in the South Wales area?
We are looking for more foster homes in South Wales for some of our rescue dogs that would benefit from being in a home environment.
What we are looking for:
We are pleased to announce the appointment of two new Hope Rescue Trustees, Zena de Torres and Ellie Hetenyi.
Yes, we have some great news to share. The lovely Fudge, who appeared on Animal Rescue Live this week, had a visit from potential adopters Ryan and Alice. This is brilliant news and subject to a successful home check, we can confirm that Fudge has now found her forever home.
Ryan and Alice from Cardiff saw Fudge on #AnimalRescueLive and applied straight away. It’s the perfect match and we are so happy for them all.
Don’t forget to tune in tonight for the final show – Channel 4 at 8pm.
One of our lovely Cocker Spaniel mums tastes the limelight as she appears on Channel 4’s Animal Rescue Live this evening, Tuesday 8th August.
Sat alongside none other than the Supervet himself, Professor Noel Fitzpatrick, she features on the show that aims to draw attention to the benefits of adopting a rescue pet.
Hope Rescue is delighted to be taking part in Animal Rescue Live: Supervet Special next week! The show, presented by Professor Noel Fitzpatrick, Kate Quilton and Steve Jones,will be broadcast on Channel 4 at 8 pm each weekday night next week. The show aims to highlight the increase in pets coming in to rescue centres and help to find homes for some of them. It will seek to address the stigma sometimes associated with rescue animals and encourage potential owners to consider a rescue pet.
We have now been in our rescue centre in Llanharan for four months and it has certainly been a steep learning curve for us all. After some teething issues we have reviewed our adoption process and public opening times. Taking into account visitor, staff and volunteer feedback we have some concerns that we are not offering our visitors and potential adopters the best customer experience possible.
