Welfare issues

Enquiries concerned with animal cruelty or animals in distress should be made directly to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) on 0300 1234 999.

Re-homing your dog

If you can no longer care for your dog, our Dog Warden can only normally provide you with advice on how to re-home it. In exceptional circumstances, we may be able to accept it as a gift and try to re-home it through dog charities. No dog will go for animal research and all contacts will be have home checks before a dog is re-homed by our charity contacts.
