Why Rescue?

Why Rescue?PUP AID is very keen to support and highlight both local and national dog rescue charities as these provide a healthy alternative to buying a puppy farmed pup.

Rescue dogs are usually already house-trained, have reached their full adult size and have even been temperament tested making them totally ready for their forever home.

Choosing to adopt a rescue dog can potentially mean one less poorly pup is needed to supply a pet shop or puppy dealer, in other words adopting reduces the demand for farmed pups.


The Oldies Club

Oldies ClubThe Oldies Club is a dog rescue, run solely by volunteers, that specialises in rescuing and rehoming older dogs – aged 7 years plus.

They first came into existence in the Spring of 2005, and in March 2007 the Oldies Club proudly became Registered Charity number 1118246.

They do not have kennels or a central base as, rather than placing dogs in kennels, they prefer to care for them in a normal home environment. They therefore use foster homes.


The Mayhew

The MayhewThe Mayhew Animal Home has a vision of a world where all companion animals are wanted.

They offer a wide variety of community services providing advice, care and assistance to animals and their carers whatever their circumstances.

The Mayhew Animal Home strive to tackle the companion animal welfare crisis from every angle.



The Kennel Club Charitable TrustThe Kennel Club Charitable Trust are one charity, a dog charity which looks after the health and welfare of all dogs.

They make a difference by funding a wide variety of work ranging from supporting research into canine diseases, dog welfare organisations and the promotion of support dogs, all of which give dogs a healthier, happier life.

Founded in 1987, they’ve donated almost £6 million to support these initiatives through various dog charity grants.


British Dalmatian Welfare

British Dalmation WelfareThe aim of the British Dalmation Welfare is to help, support, offer advice, and help re-home Dalmatians whatever their background or breeding.
