Four Paws Dog Rescue 

   Helping dogs in need everywhere
We are a group of dedicated dog lovers  that have worked in dog rescue for many years, we have worked with other rescues in the past,  but recently (2017) we got the opportunity to start our own dog rescue, our mission is to  help and re-home any unwanted dog in our area and surrounding areas that comes into our care, we also offer a lifetime  of support  to  help and  advise should it ever be needed.

Our rescue will also be in memory of a very dedicated, passionate lady that helped us help thousands of dogs get a second chance in life, this lady is Bernie Leigh.

 'Four paws  dog rescue'
in loving memory of this Doggy guardian angel. 
Help us to help our rescue dogs. Every penny counts, whether you can donate just a few pence, or setup a regular monthly donation, our dogs will be grateful!

We use PayPal to securely process donations and all funds raised go diretly towards helping our rescue dogs.
