Hope Rescue

RCN 1129629, Pontyclun

Since 2005 Hope Rescue has been saving the lives of stray, abandoned and unwanted dogs that, through no fault of their own, need a second chance. We commit to take all the stray dogs from six Local Authorities in South Wales - Merthyr Tydfil, Torfaen, Blaenau Gwent, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Bridgend and the western half of the Vale of Glamorgan - irrespective of their age, breed or medical condition. We also help owners in crisis who need to surrender their dogs, giving them peace of mind that their dogs will be rehomed responsibly.

Hope Rescue

Like so many other rescues, we reached a new crisis point here at Hope Rescue last year.  With 160 dogs in our care across our rescue centre and foster homes. The demographic of dogs coming in post-pandemic has changed and the issue seems to be getting worse. Many of the dogs we have in entering our care either have health or behavioural issues, or often both. These are not the type of dogs that can be quickly rehomed, they need the time and space for us to support them and set them up for success. Due to the huge number of dogs purchased during the pandemic we know this won't be a short-term issue. This is our world for the foreseeable future and it's a huge concern to us all.

We are working hard to continue to provide essential support to the most vulnerable dogs and owners in our local communities, providing them with urgent veterinary care, secure and cosy kennels, nutritious food, treats, toys and the training and behavioural support they will need to get them ready for their perfect forever homes. 

We genuinely couldn’t keep the doors open without the love and support of our volunteers and supporters.
