In our dog rehoming work we think we’ve seen it all – then something new comes along. Imagine, for instance, what it must be like to be callously neglected and to have diesel fuel poured over you? That was the fate for one darling dog before we rescued her. Sadly, dog abuse like this isn’t unusual among North Devon’s canine population…
Fortunately for that two-year-old collie-cross, we got her to safety and cared for her during months of recovery. The mental wounds took much longer to heal, but the process was made easier by the local couple who saw her on our website. Now Lottie enjoys boundless love, freedom, walks and cuddles with her new family. She’s yet another NDAA dog rehoming success story.
Dog rehoming is so rewarding
While most dog owners look after their animals and treat them well, we often see where changed circumstances, accidents or human cruelty make dogs’ lives miserable. That’s when we need you to call us on 07817 995751. That call could be the vital first stage of the long journey as we prepare a dog for rehoming. And when we do, the obvious love between the dog and its new owners makes all our work worthwhile.
Finding good homes takes time and money
Not surprisingly, dog rehoming takes time and money. When we rescue local dogs and puppies, they often need veterinary treatment and time at one of our local dog rehoming centres. And like our cats, all our dogs are vet-checked, neutered and microchipped before they are rehomed. Only when they’re deemed ready can we let them go. And then there are all those home checks to do…
