If you’re thinking about getting a dog, why not consider a rescue dog? Every year, thousands of dogs are waiting in our kennels to be given a second chance in a loving home.
The council’s kennels have many different breeds, sizes and ages of dogs looking for permanent homes. Available dogs can be viewed on the kennel’s website but we would recommend visiting the kennels to meet the dogs in person.
If you see a dog you like, you will be asked a number of questions to assess if the dog would be suitable for your lifestyle. For example, you will be asked if you own any other pets, have children, exercise levels you could give a dog and any training experience.
If the dog is a suitable match, Carr House Rescue Centre will carry out a home visit to answer any questions you may have and to offer any advice that is required to help the dog settle into its new home. Once the home visit is completed and passed, you can then arrange a time to collect your new dog. A donation of £60 is all that is required to get a new family member. The dog will be micro-chipped and updated with your families details. You will receive a stray dog care pack which will include a vaccination voucher and a voucher towards the cost of neutering. The money that is donated will go towards the running cost of the kennels and care for the stray dogs.
