Oldies Club is a dog rescue and registered charity in the UK that is run by volunteers and helps dogs aged 7+. It often takes in dogs that have been neglected, resulting in large vet bills. Oldies Club places dogs in foster homes, where they are assessed and receive any veterinary treatment required before being rehomed. The charity also has a sponsor dog programme, for times when it is considered in a dog's best interest to remain in their foster homes on a permanent basis, most often for health reasons, with Oldies Club covering vet bills for the rest of the dog's life.

In addition to Oldies Club's direct rescue and rehoming work, it also features older dogs on its website for many other UK rescues, free of charge, helping to promote the general adoption of older dogs.

Dogs On The
Streets London

Headed up by Michelle Clark who prior to the launch of DOTS back in 2016 had already been running a street outreach programme for 6 years, tending to the needs of the homeless with dogs, she steadily built up a strong rapport and in depth knowledge of their true needs.

Via Michelle’s extensive work in this area, the true inspiration for DOTS came in the waggy tailed shape of a very special street dog called Poppy who changed Michelle’s life forever. Poppy’s homeless dad was taken very ill and having heard about Michelle’s work made contact to see if she could help with Poppy’s welfare while he moved into accommodation to try and better his health. Michelle took Poppy on, welcoming her into her family (including numerous other furbabies!) like one of her own. And it was this bond that was formed with Poppy that sparked the desire in Michelle to do even more than she was for the homeless doggy owning community, to provide a more permanent and regular service.

Fast forward to now and DOTS operates weekly in London as well as running regular services in other major UK cities with a view to expand even further.

With a fully equipped mobile veterinary surgery vehicle allowing ease of access to dogs in need, DOTS ensures all the essential items and services are provided for free each and every week. From food provisions to new harnesses and leads plus training and grooming sessions.

Michelle has been involved in a number of cases where she has been successful in getting homeless people and their dogs off the streets for good and hopes to do more of this in the future, because every body, human or canine, deserves a roof over their heads.

Dog Rescue

Read More

Amicii Dog Rescue is a UK based charity, which was established to support a dog rescue shelter in Transylvania, Western Romania. The shelter cares for up to 200 dogs at any one time and is run by Asociatia Amicii Nostri, a registered NGO.

The dogs that live at the shelter have come mainly from the streets of the towns of Viișoara, Câmpia Turzii and Turda. Some dogs are abandoned at the shelter, for example they have been thrown over the fence. Others have been abandoned by their owners and taken into the care of the shelter team, whilst some are taken from the state public shelter in Turda.

The shelter was founded and is run by Dora Fodor, a highly dedicated school teacher. Dora and her small team look after the dogs 365 days of the year.
Amicii Dog Rescue also has a team of volunteers in the UK, who work tirelessly to raise funds and to rehome as many of the dogs as possible. In 2014/2015, over 250 dogs were successfully rehomed in the UK, including a few to Germany and 3 to Holland. The charity also runs a ‘spay and neuter’ programme for the dogs of Romania, funded by generous donations.

The current rescue shelter is situated on a piece of rented land, with a large damp barn attached. The shelter remains very much at risk, with the owner constantly threatening to evict the shelter dogs back to the streets. During 2017, we are working to raise money to build a new shelter for the Association, on a piece of land that will be owned by the charity and which will give it a long-term future.

Greyhound Gap is a small independent charity set up to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome greyhounds and lurchers who find themselves in a ‘put to sleep’ situation in UK pounds. Funded almost entirely by donations, we rehome around 150 dogs each year. We can have around 40-50 dogs at any one time in our kennels based in Kidsgrove, Stoke on Trent and a further 30-40 in foster homes. Greyhound Gap operates on a national basis so our dogs can be homed in most areas throughout the UK.

We have a network of volunteers across the whole of the UK who can help physically by: fostering, fundraising, home visiting, transporting and walking our kennel hounds. We also offer the opportunity to sponsor our long-stay hounds.

We are totally self funded and work extremely hard to raise the necessary monies to continue helping these wonderful hounds. This is made possible by fantastic support from our network of volunteers and you, the general public. Without that generosity we could not do the work we do and we are incredibly grateful for every donation we receive, however small. Every single penny really does help!
