Sheffield Dog Rescue is run by a small army of volunteers with one aim, to help dogs in need. Many of our dogs come to us via North East Derbyshire Dog Wardens and we also receive numerous calls from members of the public asking for help to rehome their pet dogs. We try to help as many dogs as we can, but funding and kennel space makes this a difficult task. We operate a no kill policy and none of our dogs are destroyed, unless advised to do so by our vet for health reasons.
All our rescued dogs receive initial vaccinations, are microchipped, deflead and dewormed. The Sheffield Dog Rescue also cover the cost of spaying / neutering of each dog.
All new owners receive one full year’s FREE membership to Sheffield Dog Rescue and we give a full back-up service to new owners.
Our kennels are located at Mosborough in Sheffield, where the dogs can be viewed by appointment. Voluntary dog walkers are welcomed, as the dogs need to be exercised and socialised as much as possible.
We rely totally on donations from the general public and income from our charity shop in Chesterfield, which is run voluntarily. The shop has a variety of new and second hands good for sale.
Jenny came from Romania as she was dumped at a shelter as a puppy along with the rest of her litter. She was fostered here in the UK until signed over to the rescue. Jenny suffered terribly with Demodex mange with a skin infection on top (see picture). After regular treatment of an Advocate spot-on and antibiotics the mange has soon settled and her fur has grown back remarkably. She may need to stay on this medication for the rest of her life to prevent he Demodex mange from coming back.
When Jenny first arrived at the kennels she was incredibly nervous around new people. It took her a good month to come around to the kennel staff after seeing them everyday. She is a very sweet natured girl who loves nothing more than her walks and to be curled up beside someone she feels comfortable with. She adores other dogs and loves to be in their company as she was used to being around them everyday in Romania. She is much more confident when around another dog.
All veterinary treatment for this pre existing condition will be paid for by the rescue.
Jenny would best suit a quiet home perhaps with another laid back dog to curl up and play with. Due to her nervousness around new people her new potential owners would need to be aware that they would need to schedule several visits to meet her to give her chance to feel comfortable with you before taking her home. She would prefer a one or two person household without children.
