Gentle Giant Amos Needs Your Help

Amos' Story

Amos is a 13 year old Mastiff Cross and had lived outside for the whole of his life before coming in to the care of Hope Rescue. He led a sheltered existence and his only glimpse of the outside world was through a gap in the fence. Despite this, he has settled into a foster home very well and is now finally enjoying some home comforts.

In the Dog House for Charity

Hope Rescue volunteers decided to spend time ‘in the dog house’ to raise money as part of a fundraising appeal. The appeal aims to raise £10,000 to tile the floors of 60 kennels which will improve the health and welfare of the dogs in its care.

A local property management company, Rhondda Development Co Ltd, has come forward to do the work for free, so we just need to raise the money to pay for materials.

Third Sector Cymru Awards 2017

We feel very proud and honoured to share the good news that we have received both the Good Governance and Most Admired Organisation awards at the prestigious Third Sector Cymru Awards announced recently.

Receiving any award is always good, but to know that the work of Team Hope has been recognised in this way is extremely humbling.

Our philosophy is always to recognise the achievements of the team, rather than singling out individuals, so a huge 'Hope Thank You' goes to everyone who has supported us over the years.
