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.
Rafe is a large Lurcher crossbreed who came to us from the dog wardens as a stray. His history is unknown but in the couple of weeks we have had him he has proven to be a very energetic young dog who loves his long walks. He is a very bouncy lad who still acts like a puppy so he would benefit from a bit of training. He seems eager to please when asking him to sit and give paw.
Rafe would best suit a home where he will get plenty of exercise to burn off his energy. His new owners would need to be patient and willing to train Rafe as he can be boisterous when excited. He is okay with other dogs whilst out on a walk but we believe he has not been socialised from a puppy. He doesn’t seem to understand how to react when he sees another dog – due to his large and clumsy nature he often bounds over to other dogs which sometimes gives the wrong impression.
Any potential new owners with dogs would need to make an appointment to view Rafe and introduce them to each other to ensure they would be suitable to live together.
