The Canine Welfare Rescue Centre


As well as our pet hotel for dogs who are already loved, we also rescue and re home dogs who need a lucky break and a loving home.   We will keep all the dogs until a new forever home is found, and therefore we have a non-destruction policy, which means that we have successfully re homed hundreds of dogs in over 30 years of running.

Most of our dogs come in from their previous homes and are given up by their owners for lots of different reasons.

We are self funded, meaning that we continuously  raise money throughout the year to cover the expenses.

We do ask for an adoption fee. This is so that we can continue to help the dogs that are in our care.  As nearly all the dogs that come to us have not been spayed or castrated this is generally done before the dog is re homed  However, if this has not been done at the time of the adoption (this may be for varying reasons) then the new adopter is asked to do this at the earliest time possible.


If you see a dog you like and want to come and meet them, please contact us by phone or email  We would also like you to email us some pictures of your house and garden, so have an idea of the type of home that you could offer to one of our dogs.

We do carry out home checks before and after an adoption takes place, and ask that new adopters keep in contact with us either via email or our facebook page ' Canine  welfare rescue centre'

We are happy to give advice and help with any training issues once the dog has been adopted from us.


We are open every day for viewing's between 11 am and 2pm.  Please call in advance to make an appointment.

Here are some of our current dogs who are in need of a new home:

Looking for a foster home
6/7 years old





Nutmeg is now looking for a very special foster home after the devastating news that she has a suspected spinal tumor.

She is a very loving and affectionate girl, and she is looking for a someone who will give her the love care and support that she needs with our continued support.

Nutmeg requires a home without other dogs or small furry animals

She is looking for an adult home so she can be a main focus.

She travels well in the car and loves meeting new people out and about.


Age 5

French Bulldog



4 year old

Jack Russell

Destiny is a beautiful little lady who is very affectionate with humans.  She has lived with small children in the past.

Destiny is a typical small French Bulldog with a lot of love to offer

We are currently fundraising for Destiny who is in need of 2 operations expecting to cost at least £3000. Destiny is booked in to have nasal/BOAS surgery on 28th January and will then go for knee surgery once she has recovered.

If you would like to donate our paypal is:

Spike needs an adult only home with someone experienced in terrier breeds who is willing to work with his behavior.


Spike needs both physical and mental stimulation and would excel at agility training or something similar. 


Spike has snapped in the past when cornered or over stimulated.  He hates animals on the TV and this is an issue that will need to be worked on in his new home.  He is crate trained and will redirect his frustrations with a tennis ball, this is something that we have been working on with him here at Canine Welfare.


Spike is a friendly boy who likes to play, he loves other dogs and can happily live with  them.


Coming Soon..


Collie X

Barney will be coming into rescue 29th January.  Unfortunately his owners are working long hours with the NHS.
He will be available for adoption following assessment.
Barney likes other dogs and is a sociable chap.  

Please email us at


to be added to our potential home list.

Because we have a non destruction policy it means we do also have dogs staying with us who are not available for re homing
They now have a permanent home with us to live out their days : )

We also have Benson the Beauceron Cross


Zephy is another boy who we care for
