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.

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


2 1/2 year old

Shar Pei


Scout is a beautiful Shar Pei boy who will soon be looking for a new home.

Scout gets on great with other dogs, and has lived with children 12 years +

Scout does suffer from separation anxiety as he loves his humans so much so we are looking for a home for Scout with another female dog.

Scout travels well, he knows most of his basic commands and seems to love every one he meets. 

Scout is clean in the house and loves to play with his toys however he is no retriever!

We are looking for a sensible home for Scout with someone who has researched the breed.


5 year old

Ex racing Greyhound

Lovely boy Barney will soon be looking for his new home.

Barney being an ex racer will take time to get used to other dogs, and is muzzle trained and easy to walk.

He has a lovely fun an playful personality which is now starting to come out.

Barney has lived  with children in his previous home.

He is a big friendly giant and has been used to kennels and recently living in the house.


5 year old


Heading 4

Shadow is a smaller petite ex racing girl who will soon be looking for her new forever home.

Shadow has lived with children recently in her previous home

Shadow will take time to get used to other dogs and she is muzzle trained.

Shadow has been used to living both in the house and in a kennel.

She is lovely to walk and her playful nature has started to show


Bella and Ava

4 year old Chihuahua sisters

Bella and Ava came into us because their owner felt that she could no longer afford to take care of them and provided them with the home they deserve

They are two sisters who will soon be looking for a new home together

They are well socialized girls who adore human company and are typical lap dogs!

They haven't lived with small children so we would prefer home with slightly older children as both girls are dinky and delicate!

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.


8 year old

American bulldog

pepper 1.jpeg

Peppa is a big beautiful girlie who is looking for her new forever home.

Peppa loves to romp around the garden, and she walks nicely on the lead.

She used to live with an older lady before coming to us.

She would like a new home with a single lady who will love her but give her firm boundaries.

Peppa is fine meeting dogs out and about but she does need a home as an only dog.

No small furry animals or children.

Peppa loves to play and she loves water!!

She is happy to be left home alone she will just snooze the time away.

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 : (, Both the boys below where handed into us by their owners for being abit 'grumpy.'
They now have a perminant home with us to live out their days : )


We also have Benson the Beauceron Cross


Zephy is another boy who we care for
