Sunday 3rd March

Volunteer Coffee Morning. 10am to Noon

All are welcome to our first coffee morning for volunteers and those interested in becoming involved in the Society. This is your chance to meet like-minded dog lovers and find out the many ways in which you can help support the Society either by giving up some of your spare time, becoming a member or even running your own event to raise funds for us.

We would also love to hear your ideas and suggestions so please come and join us.



As the Society continues to move forward, we are updating our email addresses to meet the needs of our Rescue and Rehoming work.

This will help ensure your email gets to the right person and a response issued promptly. The new email addresses are effective from 1st December 2018.

Please update your contact details you have for the Society as follows:

The old email addresses will continue to receive emails for a while as people change over to our new email addresses but there may be a delay before they are forwarded to the new email addresses.

We have been monitoring the weather forecast for Sunday and have taken the decision to change the focus of the day from a dog show to a fete. There will be NO DOG CLASSES on Sunday due to the predicted heat. While this may be disappointing news for some, as a Rescue Centre we must live by our motto of Putting Dogs First. It will be a fun afternoon and we plan to have the following stalls available for people to enjoy:
