Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre cares for and rehomes over 300 stray and unwanted dogs each year.
A small number of them have conditions that make it difficult for them to find permanent homes, either because they are very elderly and infirm or because their need for ongoing and expensive medication proves a deterrent for many adopters.
We do not believe it serves the best interests of these dogs by keeping them permanently in kennels.
Your sponsorship means these dogs can be offered Supported Adoption Dog placements (SAD) and live out their lives in the comfort of a home.
From as little as £1 a week you could help these dogs have the chance of a normal life.
It costs us over £500 to rehome a dog on average, but include the old age pensioners and medically challenged dogs for whom we have ongoing financial responsibility and the figure is much, much higher. With no government funding we rely heavily on the generosity of people. By becoming a sponsor you will help ensure they receive the best possible care.
When you sponsor our SAD dogs you will receive our quarterly members’ newsletter, and regular updates on the dogs you are helping. You can also sponsor them as a gift for a friend!
