We are recruiting for a retail trustee
** Apply by 5 November **
Could you support a well- established local charity by becoming a Trustee? This is a fantastic opportunity to really make a difference to the welfare and lives of dogs in need in the South Wales area.
Join Hope Rescue and the South Wales Dog Walking Club for the Waggy Welsh Walk 2017.
Starting out from Whitmore Bay on Barry Island at 5.30pm, we will be walking a picturesque three mile circular walk. Take in the breathtaking views from the clifftops as we head out to Jacksons Bay just as the sun sets. The walk will continue on solid paths and sand for three miles, finishing up where we started under the Eastern Shelter on Whitmore Bay (Barry Island main beach).
We are in urgent need of tinned food for the dogs at our rescue centre in Llanharan. We would be very grateful if you could help us by donating a few tins to our appeal.
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 our rescue centre. You can find the wishlist here.
You can now enjoy private use of Hope Rescue's training paddock. The paddock is surrounded by specialised dog-proof fencing to give you a secure space for some off-lead or long-lead training with your dog.
Each booking will last for 30 minutes, which will give you plenty of time to exercise your dog with a 15 minute change-over time between sessions so that you and your dog can enjoy the space in private. This is especially valuable for dogs who are nervous or uncomfortable around other dogs.
The cost is £5 per half hour session.
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.

We are pleased to announce the appointment of two new Hope Rescue Trustees, Zena de Torres and Ellie Hetenyi.
