More than 200 dogs still need a new home 

We have more than 200 dogs in our care that are desperately seeking
loving new homes. Eighty of those dogs are Canarian Podencos whose
hunting days were over so they were just abandoned or that had serious injuries and left to die. We also have more than 60 dogs who are classed as dangerous dogs predominately pit bulls and staffies. 

When will people realise the crisis that is around us and realise that castration and sterilisation is so important to aid this horrendous situation. It is almost impossible to rehome these dogs with only one or two occasionally finding a home. The rules are very strict here now and you have to have a dangerous dog licence and insurance to be able to adopt these dogs but it is relatively easy to do and we can help and advise you on how to comply with the legislation. Their lives are spent in a kennel with a small run , yes they have the best care possible but no love no freedom to run and play. Please can we all help to ensure we do not let our pets breed and please adopt not buy a dog. 
We are open during the summer with our normal hours. If you have any spare time the dogs would love a walk and some cuddles so please do come and make a dogs day.
