Summer holidays are always just as busy for rescues as Christmas. Although it’s not obvious why that is the case, we think part of the reason could be that some owners literally discard their dogs while they go away on holiday. It is something that we need to be ready to respond to every year.
We will be having a stall at The Big Cheese on both Saturday and Sunday, 25th and 26th July. This is a great annual event in the middle of Caerphilly and is really popular with residents and visitors alike.
Volunteers are needed to help us with our stall as it can get very busy. We also need doggie deli bakers as this is always very popular and we can easily sell out!
Hope Rescue has been awarded a grant of £1,000 for its Community Shop project from the Jewson Building Better Communities fund. The award also includes a new kitchen from Symphony, one of Jewson’s suppliers.
Hope Rescue was short-listed as a regional finalist and grants of between £1,000 and £5,000 were on offer with 63 worthy projects across the country making it onto the short list.
Once again Rudry Riding Club are very kindly holding a Fun Dog Show in aid of Hope Rescue on Sunday 19th July from 1 to 5pm.
Bring your dogs and take part in our fun dog show - it's indoors so will be on come rain or shine!
We will be needing lots of volunteers to help - so if you can spare some time, we'd love to hear from you.
Please support our summer Fun Dog Shows and help us to raise much-needed funds. All of these events are great fun for the family and there will be stalls and other attractions - so something for everyone!
Come rain or shine we need to make these shows a real success and they are an important part of our fundraising. It would be great to see you all there!
If you would like to volunteer to help at any of these shows, please get in touch with us on email@example.com

We are always very grateful for volunteers - if you would like to help on the day, please get in touch - firstname.lastname@example.org

We were delighted to collect a cheque for an amazing £1,162 which was a lovely surprise.
Our Rescue Manager Ali and volunteer Gina are pictured with Manager of PAH Newport, Rich, along with Hope dog Barnaby who recently had a tumour removed. Rich and the team are always so welcoming and we love doing our Meets and Greets at the store.
We are recruiting a Manager for our first charity shop, in South Wales. This is a pivotal role in the delivery of our fundraising strategy, reporting direct to the Board of Trustees.
Due to unforeseen circumstances we are re-advertising this position. Please do not apply if you have previously expressed an interest in this role.
Please help us with one big push to win as many votes as possible. Voting must close at the end of this month, so there is only a couple of weeks left.
We will be having a stall at this great day out and we would be grateful for any volunteer help on the day even if you can only spare an hour or two.
We will also need some doggy deli bakers too.
Please email email@example.com if you can help.
