Dogs in need of good homes...

Things to consider before adopting a dog:- Am I able to give the exercise and mental stimulation a dog requires on a daily basis? Will the dog have someone with him/her for most of the day?  We insist that the dog is not left alone for more than 4 hours in the day.  Am I prepared for the costs associated with keeping a dog (i.e. vets bills and food)? All animals are micro-chipped, adults are spayed/neutered and flea/worming treatment is kept up to date.

We will ask that you visit any dog you are interested in at least twice. Dog introductions may take up to 3 visits.
A home visit is required before any dog is adopted. This is to ensure that the environment is suitable (i.e. garden has lockable gate and fences are secure). Please call to book a viewing appointment.

Minimum charge for our dogs is £125.00
Please note all payments are cash only.

We are seeking volunteers to help with the cleaning and walking the dogs on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. If you are over 18,love animals and are able to get to the shelter please call us.

Please take a look at our new "Dog Of The Month" Eva

She loves a fuss from people and cannot be rehomed with cats

TIA STAFF Female 2 Years Available

Tia is a sweetie! She has such a big personality for such a tiny dog. She walks well on a lead, does seem interested in the other dogs when she passes them.

He is shy on first meeting but once he is your friend he will love you forever. He came to us as his owner went into hospital and could no longer care for him


Scruff is wonderful here, he loves everyone and often goes out with volunteer Tracy and her two dogs. They walk in the parks in Melton and he visits her home. Scruff should be an only pet although he does have a few doggy friends. He has visited the vet and behaved well with both people and dogs he met as we walked in. Scruff is looking for a home where everyone is used to large breed dogs and can be firm but fair, if there are children they should be older. He is very friendly and loves the interaction with people and playing ball. Scruff came back to us due to his owners finding him too much to cope with. Check out Scruff's new video with best pal Sam. Most recently Scruff went to Melton country park and joined a pack walk with our new trainer Sophie from The K9 Concept.

BENNY BEAGLE CROSS Male 11 Months Reserved

Benny is a young lively dog with bundles of energy. He is good with other dogs we're not sure what he is like with cats. He came to us because he can be possessive of his food so should be rehomed with sensible older children. He is very friendly towards everyone he meets and would do well with someone to take him on plenty of walks

CHARLIE STAFF Male Approx 8 Years Available

Charlie is a spritely boy with a charming personality. We do not know too much about him, he was found as a stray in Stratford and came to us through the dog warden.

JAVIER STAFFI Male Approx 4 Years Available

Javier was found wandering on London road in Leicester. He was very quiet and submissive when he came to us but he loves the company of people and loves nothing more than a cuddle, his walks and a game of fetch. Javier has put on some weight, since joining us and seems a happy boy. He is hit and miss with other dogs and we would advise that he be re-homed as an only dog, only because as he was a stray we know nothing of his history with them. That said he does walk very nicely past and along side the other dogs here at walking time, so would not be a problem when out and about with his new family. He is a joy to have around when out and about in the kennels. Take a look at Javier paddling in the pool!

COOKIE GREAT DANE CROSS Male 6 years Available

Cookie is a wonderful boy who just needs the right owner. Cookie is very well behaved in every way except when food is around with other dogs. He needs to be an only pet with no contact with other dogs in his home or theirs. He walks well and his last owner had no problem with him out and bout on his walks, but he had a partner with another dog and Cookie would have to stay at that house and problems arose. He has been home with a staff member for the day, met other dogs and behaved very well. We have taken him on our sponsored walk. We do stop and food comes out, but no problems when he's with us. Cookie will do well if he can just find the right owner. He has been with us for a while now and he is such a gentle giant, he would be happy with a rug to sleep on surrounded by his new owners.
