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.

7 to 8 year old
Labrador Cross

Eddie is looking for a new home through no fault of his own.

Eddie will take time to accept a new person into his life, so a potential adopter will need to visit a few times for walkies and then we do a trial home period where he becomes mush!, and be local to IP13

He would like a quite home, with someone who has a good home to work weekly routine for Eddie to settle into.

He is cautious of other dogs when out.

He could be rehomed with a quiet female.

Adult home only.

Eddie travels well in the car.

He walks lovely on the lead, he loves to run and knows many commands.

Once you are his best friend he becomes the most loyal dog anyone could ask for.

Eddie is a sofa dweller and this is where he will chose to sleep!

Eddie is a fun loving goofball who would love a new forever home of his own.

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
