****UPDATE ***** APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE COCKER SPANIEL PUPPIES
We have been lucky to receive a good review from local blog 'Welsh Cakes and Wellies' – you can read what they said about the café and store here.
Our charity shop in Pontypridd is doing really well and is now benefiting from our very own in-store dog friendly cafe.
Our Cocker Spaniel puppies are growing bigger every day, moving around and eating lots. The inevitable result of this means that we need donations of old newspapers to line the kennel floors. This not only helps us to keep them all clean, but is a hygienic way of picking up the poop!
If you can help, you can drop the newspapers off at our centre in Llanharan, South Wales from 12 pm to 4 pm every day except Wednesday.
The address is:
Hope Rescue Centre
We are thrilled to be able to share some incredible news with you all that will make such a huge difference to the lives of the dogs that come into our rescue centre.
We are delighted to announce a new sponsorship programme with Burns Pet Nutrition.
Burns have supported us with food for our foster dogs for many years and they have now committed to feed all of our rescue dogs at the new centre, and provide rehoming packs for every adopter.
A big Hope thank you to Technical Marketing and PR who recently donated £500. We've used their donation to buy an information portal for our newly refurbished charity shop in Pontypridd so that shoppers can browse our website and have a look at the lovely Hope dogs available for adoption.
Rocky says "thank you" to everyone who has donated to help with the vet fees for his surgery to repair his broken kneecap. He also sends an extra "woof" to the anonymous donor who kindly donated £500.
The surgery went well and Rocky is still a lively, fun-loving pup and is a real happy, smiley boy. He needs to go back to the vets in two weeks to have his staples out, then again to have the pins removed.
** GREAT NEWS - MADDIE NOW HAS A LOVELY FOSTER HOME **
Maddie is about 9 or 10 years old and is a Chihuahua cross who was surrendered into our care via Social Services due to her owner being ill. As well as helping strays, ensuring we are there to help pet owners in crisis is a key aspect of our work.
She is a lovely wee thing, enjoys a short walk but doesn't need much exercise, loves a fuss and is very affectionate.
Our Amazon Wishlist is now more important than ever in our new rescue centre.
The list of items needed keeps growing and so we have updated our Amazon Wishlist and would be really grateful for any donations.
Our priority items at the moment are tinned food, Halti training leads, fleece harnesses and long lasting treats but any donations would be greatly appreciated.
We are now able to offer licensed boarding in 20 kennels at our new Rescue Centre in Llanharan, South Wales.
All boarding dogs receive a daily walk in our own private 18 acre woodland, and are cared for by our professional animal welfare team.
The cost is £14 per day, which includes arrival and departure days. We also offer a bathing service from £10 per dog on the day of collection.
