Big Charity Shop Sort Out

The good news is that the Hope Rescue Charity Shop in Pontypridd is full to bursting with lovely donations. Unfortunately due to a lack of regular volunteers, it has become necessary to do a big sort out to ensure that the shop has new stock and a well-organised shop floor.

So there will be a big "Charity Shop Sort Out" on  Sunday 24th, Monday 25th and Tuesday 26th April, with the shop closed for business on all of these days.

Great News from Petplan Charitable Trust

A huge "Hope Rescue Thank You" goes to the Petplan Charitable Trust for the award of a £5,000 grant towards the cost of vet fees for our dogs.

Hope Rescue will not turn its back on a dog in need, irrespective of age, breed or medical condition. The cost of veterinary care is the second largest expense we have after kennel fees, so this grant will help significantly with the care we give to our dogs.

Stunning Madge Needs A Home

Please meet Madge, an elegant beauty who is still looking for a home. After a very unsettled start in life, she needs a calm and experienced home preferably as the only dog but could possibly live with another relaxed and friendly dog. She cannot live with cats or other small animals.

Annual Petplan and ADCH Awards

The finalists at this year’s Petplan and Association of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH) Awards include none other than Hope Rescue’s very own Rescue Manager, Alison Ling.

Ali has been shortlisted as one of three finalists in the Animal Charity Employee of the Year category.

As one of a very small staff team, and the only paid member of operational rescue staff, Ali’s role is incredibly difficult. Having an open intake policy for the pounds means that the number of dogs coming into Hope’s care varies each week, and some of them present challenges that are hard to anticipate.  

Inner Child Day

Simba, a nine month old blind Toy Poodle, became the centre of attention at an event organised by the Students Union at Cardiff University. Part of their “Student Minds” programme, this is the second year that Hope Rescue has supported them by taking along dogs to meet some of their students.

Hannah's Story

A very sad story to tell - sometimes the positive outcomes are just out of reach!

Recently as gentle soul came into the care of Hope Rescue but it was too late to help her. She was given the name Hannah and her plight touched the hearts of everyone. As a result, our Chair of Trustees penned an open letter to her owner on Facebook, which was subsequently picked up by some sections of the media, from the Daily Express to the Examiner in the USA.
