Greyhound Rescue North East

Greyhound Rescue North East

“Greyhound Rescue North East is a very small UK voluntary organisation dedicated to the work of re-homing retired Greyhounds, Whippets and the odd Lurcher. Most of our dogs have been rescued by Steven Duncan and kept in his private kennels in Sunderland until the right home comes along.” LINK

GREYHOUND RESCUE NORTH YORKSHIRE

“Yes! Over 25 years of caring for hundreds of these kind, affectionate, graceful and very appreciative breed (the Greyhound). Appreciative by means of being so thankful for all the help and care you show and give them, quickly building their faith and trust up in people again and showing such readiness to please. No matter whatever fate some of our greyhounds have been through (which some of them have) whether they have been subjected to either physical or mental abuse they seem to have the courage to put this behind them and gain their confidence in people again.” LINK

GREYHOUNDS GALORE

“Our aim is to rescue as many greyhounds and lurchers as we possibly can. They make absolutely wonderful pets. They are loyal, gentle, loving couch potatoes.” LINK

North Yorkshire RGT

North Yorkshire RGT

“The North Yorkshire Branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust does not have any homing kennels. Instead, we are working closely with trainers and racing owners and homing greyhounds directly from their kennels. This means that we know the dogs’ history and their temperaments well. The kennels are (mainly) in 3 locations around the county.” LINK

Tia Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue

Tia Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue

Tia is an independent not-for-profit organisation and does not receive money from the racing industry. We rely solely on the public’s generosity to provide support for dogs who have often been mistreated, traumatised, starved or neglected and to provide them with a new life.” LINK

Northumberland Greyhound Rescue

Northumberland Greyhound Rescue

“Because up to 10,000 Greyhounds* a years retire from racing in the UK and Ireland every single year, and a high percentage of that number disappear, never to be seen again. Many are killed as soon as they stop winning and making money, others are put out in remote areas and left to fend for themselves, some are just left, tied up somewhere to starve to death. We do not think that this is a fit and proper end for these wonderful creatures”. LINK

Animal Care

Animal Care

“Animal Care has existed in various forms for over 30 years but as a registered charity since 1978. A few local animal lovers started to care for animals in their own homes when no-one else would help them and as the need for help increased so did the need for a permanent site to house the dogs, cats, rabbits, sheep, goats, horses and other animals desperately in need of care and attention.” LINK

Saltburn Animal Rescue Association

Saltburn Animal Rescue Association

“Saltburn Animal Rescue Association was formed in 1995 by a small group of animal lovers who sought to help animals in need. The group formulated a constitution and has now achieved Charitable Status. Our aim is to help as many animals as possible by placing them into foster homes and attending to their veterinary care until responsible caring homes can be found.” LINK

Stray Aid

Stray Aid

“Stray-aid is an animal-based organization whose primary aim is to stop homeable stray dogs and cats from being put down. By increasing public awareness to the plight of unwanted animals, providing information on what to do if you lose or find a dog or cat, who to contact and how to get help. We are creating a network to facilitate the exchange of dogs around the country.” LINK

Stray Action for Dogs

Stray Action for Dogs

“Here at STRAY ACTION we are committed to re-homing all stray dogs whenever possible. We have a non-destruction policy so that all dogs have a safe haven until a suitable home can be found. These dogs are mostly homeless through no fault of their own, through family circumstances, owner’s ill health, bereavement, being abandoned or abused, or just that their owners don’t want them anymore.” LINK

Thornberry Animal Sanctuary

Thornberry Animal Sanctuary

“Thornberry is a medium sized animal sanctuary that operates a NO-KILL policy. This means that we do not put any animal to sleep unless it is cruel, due to medical reasons, not to do so.” LINK

Doris Banham Dog Rescue

Doris Banham Dog Rescue

“The charity was set up to help all animals, but as we became increasingly aware of the heart breaking needless destruction of unclaimed dogs in dog pounds, we vowed to help them and the charity has developed to provide an essential life saving rescue service for these forgotten dogs.” LINK

MAYFLOWER SANCTUARY

“As the morning of the 6th of june 2003 dawned bright and clear we, the volunteers from Animals In Need 2000, a charity formed by a small group of like-minded people who just wanted to make a difference, opened their eyes and took a deep breath! After four long years of laughter, tears, heartache and many, many hours of endless fund-raising, our dream had become a reality.” LINK
