What We Do

It is an unpleasant fact that South Yorkshire does not have a good reputation with regard to caring for its animals. At Rotherham Dog Rescue, we aim to give all our dogs the life they deserve, no matter how long it takes.

What Rotherham Dog Rescue Do

  • Our aim is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome abandoned, abused and unwanted dogs.
  • We work closely with the Rotherham dog wardens and take in dogs from the pound.
  • We give a dog a kennel space until it is rehomed no matter how long it takes.
  • We provide short term foster homes for dogs that have difficulty adapting to life in kennels.
  • We provide long term foster homes for elderly dogs where we assist with veterinary care to give these oldies a chance to live out their remaining years in the comfort of a loving home.
  • We help educate owners on how best to care for their dogs.
  • We find caring and responsible owners for our dogs by conducting thorough home checks and matching the right dog to the right owner.
  • We have experienced volunteers on board to run our kennels and deal with members of the public.
  • We have our own dog psychologist who assesses all our dogs, addresses any behavioural issues that the dog may have and who also gives free advice to any prospective owner both before and after adoption.

Our Facilities

We currently have 12 rescue kennels at our premises which are large and all heated. At the front of the kennels we have 2 fenced off enclosures for the dogs to play in. One of these enclosures contains a portacabin which serves as our office, storage area and somewhere for the dogs to interact with our volunteer staff and have lots of fuss and cuddles on our newly donated sofas. At the back of our kennels, there are two large fenced off areas with one containing agility equipment for keeping our dogs occupied and stimulated.

Due to work commitments, we do not have volunteers on site all the time. The owner of the kennels looks after our dogs when we are not there. Therefore it is important that anyone wishing to visit us must contact us first to make sure there will be someone there from the rescue.

PLEASE NOTE: we now have a new website which can be found by typing in into your search engine. Make sure you click onto the address without hyphens. All contact details and kennels address remain the same.
