****** LOCKDOWN UPDATE ******


Hello everyone

All the information below still stands for now so please read so we are all aware.

We are slowly getting closer to the time when we can hopefully welcome people back to the kennels for viewing etc but we're not quite there yet.

We're still asking people who would like to register their interest in any of the dogs in our care to contact the kennels directly to book an appointment first by either calling 01299 269181 (please leave a message if they are busy when you call and they will get back to you) or email at [email protected]

Please note: the kennels will continue to be closed on Wednesdays) 🙂

If you have any donations you may kindly like to offer, our shops are now accepting donations!!

Ludlow is accepting donations any day & Kidderminster is accepting donations on Mondays, Wednesdays & Saturdays (2 bags per drop off at Kidderminster please).

You can still drop them off by the reception area at the kennels (2 bags per drop off) between 10-12 & 2-4 if you're happy to do so.

We appreciate this can be frustrating and we really are grateful for all your support but it's a time where patience is needed.

Thanks again everyone, you've been absolutely amazing!

We're so looking forward to seeing you all again! 

If you know anyone who isn't internet connected, please be so kind as to pass this information on to them, thank you in advance.

Dog of the Month







THANK YOU to all who have kindly donated to help us along during this extremely trying time for everyone.

We have received such kindness even when we know so many are going through such a difficult and testing time themselves.

A simple Thank you never seems enough to express how humbled we all feel.

We hope you know us well enough to know just how grateful we are and our deepest concern is to continue to keep dogs safe and well. Our work goes on and we'll do all in our power to keep it going.

Thanks again everyone, we hope the updates, photos and videos which go on to our facebook is also another way of showing our appreciation of your kindness.

Please take care and stay safe, we miss you and we're so looking forward to seeing you again as soon as the restrictions allow us to do so
