Latest News Cosy Kennels Shoebox Appeal 2019 Christmas is our busiest time of the year and throughout the winter months we expect to see more than 150 stray dogs come into our rescue centre. Sadly, less than half of these dogs will be claimed by their owners. Hope Rescue commits to care for all unclaimed strays from RCT, Bridgend, Vale (west), Merthyr, Torfaen and Blaenau Gwent. We don't pick and choose, we take every dog so that no-one gets left behind, even if they are old, sick or an 'unfashionable' breed. So why not start collecting some much-needed treats for a Christmas Shoebox and drop it into our rescue centre or charity shop over the next few weeks? You could include Fleecy blankets and towels - to keep the kennels cosy. No duvets or pillows please.Tinned dog food – to make mealtimes more exciting. No dry dog food please.Tinned hot dog sausages - great for hiding medication or for fussy eaters. You could also add sardines or tuna in oil.Meaty or long-lasting treats - as a special treat or delicious training reward. Schmackos or dried sausages are the dogs' favourites.Tough dog toys and balls – to keep the dogs occupied in kennels or for a game of fetch in our exercise paddock. Or if you'd prefer to make a donation you can buy a Virtual Shoebox on our Rescue Dog Wishlist For more information about our Shoebox Appeal or to get your school, office or club involved, please contact us on 01443 226659 or email.
