Pontefract Dog Rescue, was established 14 years ago and we rehome family dogs and guarantee to find your precious dog a new caring home.
We keep our dogs as happy as possible whilst they await their forever home and so they are fostered in the homes of kind volunteers. We assess their behaviour in a family situation and tell potential owners what they are like to live with. This enables us to provide a special service and differentiates us from many larger rescues.
We make the dogs as healthy as we can prior to adoption. To ensure the best nutrition they are fed good quality gluten-free, hypoallergenic complete biscuit. We follow the advice of our vets and ensure they are given necessary treatment such as dental work and antibiotics for kennel cough. Wherever possible dogs are neutered and vaccinated but if the vet advises against this then dogs must be neutered and vaccinated in their new home at owners' expense. All dogs are treated for fleas and worms and microchipped.
We take a lot of care to check that the dog and it's needs and personality match the owner, the home, the family and lifestyle. We do post adoption follow-up checks.
We continue to support our owners with help and advice, including working with specialist vets, dog behaviourists and trainers.
WE DO NOT SELL DOGS. We ask for a donation to the Charity when a dog is adopted. These adoption donations do not fully cover the costs of transport, feed, vet bills, microchips, collars, leads, name tags, harnesses, dog training and equipment. This is why we rely so heavily on additional fundraising and public generosity to make ends meet.
