Rescue is best
Our Ambassadors and Friends play a huge part in supporting our work and have given some of our dogs and cats wonderful new homes.
"There is nothing better than giving a dog a second home."
"It's been a real joy watching him relax into our home."
"It's just been one of the best decisions we ever made."
