An Appeal for a Orphan Foal Annie


We don't often appeal but need some funds to help Annie.
If anyone can donate to help us get milk for the orphan  foal it would be much appreciated as it's quite expensive and she drinks a lot about 14 pints a day.

 This is Bambi at 9 months, it has cost us more than £1000 to get her here on milk and vets but she is thriving. 


I know we were all excited to get a Sprinkles to the area but it is nothing compared to the excitement of getting Natterjacks vets coming to Poole.
Wonderful to have a chain free independant vet in Poole who is free to use any medical company and any products.
And there vets are second to none and they alsways go above and beyond and the facilities are awesome.


Would like to say a huge thankyou to the amazing children at Bishop Aldhems Primary School in Poole who very kindly raised £61.87 for the dogs at the rescue, we would like to say a huge thankyou from us girls and the dogs and that we are so impressed that children are adopting rescue dogs and helping us look after them by working hard and fundraising

St Gregory's school

All of us at Dorset dog rescue would like to say a massive huge thank you to these lovely young ladies from St Gregory's school North Dorset who raised £187.00 running 5
miles round their cross country field after school . Ruby the dog on the left the red fox lab came from Dorset dog rescue two years ago and joined in the run . Super huge well done girls, just want to say we appreciatte every donation regardless of size but its so special to see young children understanding the plight of rescue dogs and a rescues struggle financially

Furry friends

Sweetie says thankyou, after rolling in mud

 she is back on the bed within an hour of being shaved

 Julia the groomer was so patient as sweetie was very nervous and scared

 she deffo hasn't had the best life


So we have had a hard year (yes its only March)
So not only are we up for Animal Charity of the Year we are now up  for Animal Charity Team of the Year which to me means so much.
We are so busy on average 8 local hand ins a week at mo and we are trying to fight the passport regulation that was enforced 28th December 2014 as its crazy so many lovely healthy dogs that you guys adopt being put to sleep every Friday as they are on wrong side of border in Ireland. I mean not as if there is any border control between Northern Ireland and Southern
so new petition coming soon.
And this aware is voted for by the people who do adopt our dogs
so thank you all of you and thank you Petplan AGAIN

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.
