As a not for profit UK animal rescue, we support the local community in and around Basingstoke and wider area by rehoming and rehabilitating dog, cats, and other small animal’s by 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 not like those in the UK, they are filthy and riddled with disease, the dog’s don’t receive enough food, puppies, old dogs and young adult dogs are all kenneled together. 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 by promoting the animals they have available to rehome, and support with spay and neuter campaigns which is ultimately going to be the best long-term solution to this problem. Our small team is staffed by volunteers, who are true animal lovers and passionate about animal welfare, freely giving up their time. This means every penny we receive goes directly to helping dogs and cats. Since being established in 2018, to date we have rescued and rehomed over 1000 dogs and cats into loving forever homes.
Many of our rescues have been abandoned or come from traumatic situations, which is why all our rescues enter into foster homes first for assessment.
For dogs coming from Romania, many will have most likely never seen the inside of a house, had a warm bed, a collar round their neck or been walked on a lead. They may have to fight for food and attention, so lots of time and patience is needed to help them settle in. Rescue dogs and cats have so much love to give and to see a nervous or frightened animal turn into a confident one is truly amazing.
In the UK, we spend our time helping with welfare cases. Sometimes, we receive calls from the public that a dog or cat has been abandoned, maybe in danger, or they come via other rescues. We work hard to give them the chance of finding a forever home. The rescue is also involved in spay/neuter and release campaigns for cats and kittens.
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 from Romania 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 Pet Plan
* 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
