Since then, our team of volunteers and fosterers have worked tirelessly to find all our animals a family of their own. To date we have rescued and rehomed over 1000 dogs and cats, but there are many more that still need our help.
Our work is never done. Unfortunately, there are always animals that need our help, both locally and abroad.
We support the local community in and around Basingstoke and wider area by rehoming and rehabilitating dogs, cats, and other small animals . Our work includes arranging shelter, transport, veterinary care, microchipping, spaying, and neutering.
In addition to our work in the UK, we also help dogs and cats in Romania. The shelters in Romania are often filthy and riddled with disease. We support individual rescuers in Romania, working alone with little support or financial backing, who are making a real difference to the lives of the dogs they save. We help promote the animals they have available to rehome and support them with spay and neuter campaigns.
One of our biggest challenges aside from fundraising, is finding foster homes. As fast as we can rehome, there are more animals waiting to come in.
Fostering is hugely rewarding and gives an animal the opportunity of finding their forever home in a safe, loving, and secure environment. When you foster a dog or cat with us you play a key part in the rehoming process, and help us to help more animals. If you’d like to know more about fostering, you can read more on our fostering page.
Our small team is staffed by volunteers, who are true animal lovers and passionate about animal welfare. We receive no government funding and depend entirely on the generosity of our supporters.
Every penny we receive goes directly to helping dogs and cats. If you would like to make a donation or are interested in volunteering, we would love to hear from you.
The team works hard to ensure that our dogs go into the right homes and vice versa that you are happy with the adoption. We understand that sometimes things do not work out, people’s circumstances change, or you may feel that you are not coping or having issues with the puppy or dog etc. and, in these rare instances, we provide full rescue back up.
Each of our rescue dogs/cats are microchipped and we arrange for the microchip to be updated with your address and contact details on adoption.
We have two options available:
1. Foster with a view to adoption. The animal will come directly to your home.
2. Adoption. Our dogs or cats will already be in foster in the UK, and you will get the opportunity to meet with them before making your decision.
We try and ensure that our website and Facebook pages are kept as up to date as possible. At any given time, we also have dogs and cats who have not yet been listed, so feel free to make a general enquiry rather than specific to a particular animal.
With dogs/puppies coming over from Romania, sometimes the information we receive is limited. In each case we will do our best to provide you with as much information as possible, so that you can make an informed decision. As our dogs all go into foster homes it gives the rescue the opportunity to fully assess them first.
Our cats/kittens are usually UK rescues, and we normally have more information on them.
Our adoption fee includes:
* Pet Passport (if applicable)
* All vaccinations
* De worming and flea treatments
* Five weeks free insurance with Agria
* Where the dog or cat is old enough, it will also be spayed
Having a dog or cat is expensive, especially if medical treatment is required. Here are few expenses that you need to consider:
* Pet Insurance: This will vary depending on the age, size and breed of your dog. Some people prefer to put money aside each money to cover any unexpected medical costs.
* Monthly treatments: De-flea and de-worming
* Food: Wet, Dry or Raw
* Dog Walker or Pet Sitter: If you are out at work or go away on holiday
