Well we got a lovely surprise today and for the second year running we have been nominated for 'Charity of the Year' this award means so much to us as it is voted for by our adopters and supporters who have a DDR dog and its their opinions we care about the most, well apart from the dogs.
We are aware we can be a tad marmite lol as do things differently and a bit out spoken like the time I listed Peppa the hound as the worst dog I had ever fostered, hey some people hate it some love it but its us and the way we are and we thank you for your support this means a lot to us xx

Well before I started DDR I worked as a vet receptionist and saw many examples of insurance companies and how they operate, my own animals are insured with Pet plan because if they had a big accident I don't have £4000 plus just lying around to pay for surgeries as most of us don't . Also Pet plan is one of the very few insurance companies that vets will liase direct with so you don't have to pay money all up front.
We at DDR provide 2 weeks vet care for illness (not accident) at our vets Natterjacks and provide 4 weeks free insurance with Pet Plan that needs activating the day you take your dog home. These are the only insurance company we recommend due to so much experience in listening to owners getting stung.
You can call us for a chat anytime if your unsure as insurance can be a minefield.
We only endorse what we believe in.
We are now working alongside Nutriment who is a fabulous company who go out of their way to help rescues. They offer us amazing discount and welcome packs and a few free days food for people who are keeping their dogs on raw. There are so many benefits to raw food but for me I choose it because my dogs love it and it keeps them to one very firm poo a day, they have excellent coat and skin, I believe keeps them healthier. About 50% of our dogs are fed on raw. I love Nutriment as their mince comes with all the herbs and extras already mixed in.
Nutriment also have an excellent scheme where if you donate a tube they will match it for free so if you would like to make a donation you could buy a dog a mean and Nutriment will match it.
