Giving unwanted pets the loving home they deserve... down

About Rugeley...

Ten years ago Pauline Roberts and I, Ruth Dewis, came together and started fundraising for local charities.

As word spread we found that on our days off we were either going to the kennels with donations that we had collected or been delivered to our homes, preparing and doing fund raising events, collecting dogs from the kennels to go to their new homes, per forming home checks and giving the owners advice. As well as taking dogs to the kennels that have been found or their owners can no longer look after them. After homing the dogs we keep in touch with the owners and help them out in any way we can, we are always at the end of the phone.

Give us a call today to see how we can help you on 07900 090 993 / 07971 817 877


We raise money by doing talks to small groups, we do raffles, cake days and car boots when our shifts allow us, we work full time and this is all voluntary.

The money raised also goes to having the dogs neutered, spayed, vaccinated and chipped and help towards costs associated with illnesses they get.

We get a lot of support from very close friends who are more than happy to muscle in with the latest fund raising idea, and help in any way they can, the local pet shops, Bobby from Rainbow Pet Stores, Sue and her staff from Creature Comforts take in any donations for us and advertise the dogs looking for homes along with Helen who run’s a charity shop herself. Stratton’s Veterinary Surgery and No 1 Vets also help out with donations and treatment that the dogs might need.

We have come a very long way, with our friends and supporters, met some very generous and lovely people that have helped us make our charity successful.

Fostering a dog...

On occasion a dog may be un-suited to spending time in kennels. This could be due to infection after an operation or for a dog that is not handling kennel life very well.

In this instance we look for temporary foster homes for the dogs. We often need to find foster homes very quickly but each home is still subject to a home check.

If you are interested in fostering a dog please get in touch with us to arrange dates and availabilities to suit you & your pets needs.

Loving dogs who need new homes...

Unfortunately for all sorts of reasons dogs can find themselves in need of a new home. We do our best to match dogs with their ideal new owners. We carry out a home check and ask for a small donation. If you can give a home to any of the dogs below or would like to know more please contact us today.
