Edinburgh Dog
and Cat Home


Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home has been a safe haven to stray animals since 1883, and still rescues over a thousand lost or abandoned dogs and cats every year. We provide a vital service to the community by trying, wherever possible, to reunite owners with their missing animals. But there are times when owners cannot be found or are unable to cope – that’s when our re-homing programme comes in, when we find new homes for unwanted dogs and cats.

Geordie Bullies
Springboard Rescue


Geordie Bullies Springboard Rescue UK was formed in 2016 by Helen Seymour and Clair Knox.
As English Bulldog owners they could not stand by and see the way these iconic dogs were being used and abused for breeding and then discarded without a care for their wellbeing. So they created GBSR UK with the mission to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome English Bulldogs throughout the UK

All dogs are home fostered, and given the medical treatments required before rehoming to fully qualified homes with Rescue Back-up for life.
GBSR UK is run by volunteers and 100% of monies raised goes towards the dogs in their care.


Barn Sanctuary


At Lizzie’s Barn we have a specially converted barn, which we use in preference to kennels, surrounded by 10 acres for exercise. Some of our dogs will stay with us forever due to old age or ill-health. We provide them with comfort, company and security for the rest of their lives. Some will be found homes as and when they are ready.

Much of our work is with abandoned abused and neglected dogs, and with puppies rejected by other organisations. The sanctuary is able to offer them the rich social experience, mixing with people and other dogs which is essential for their development. We find homes both locally and in other parts of the UK as this enables us to increase the number we can help. However to do this we need increased support. To ensure our dogs go to loving owners, all new homes must be vetted and/or references may also be required.

We are a small, family-run rescue without any paid staff, providing safety and sanctuary to dogs who have been to hell and back, having strangers around is stressful and unsettling for them, so we are unable to invite visitors to the sanctuary prior to vetting & without an appointment.

All of our dogs for adoption will have been neutered if old enough, and deemed fit enough, by our vet and come with four weeks free insurance cover. We ask for a set donation on adoption towards our many costs which enables us to continue our work and to help other dogs. Full lifetime support and back up is provided for every dog. They must be returned to Lizzie’s Barn at any time should the new owner be unable to care for them, and an undertaking by the owner to do so forms part of our adoption agreement.

Logo_Wild Acre Rescue_small

Wild Acre


Wild Acre Rescue is fortunate to have volunteers with a wealth of knowledge and experience, spanning over 30 years, in dealing with domestic pets. This has proved very beneficial and successful.

Our objectives are to promote the welfare of ill-treated, abandoned and homeless animals in the area. To also provide advice, support and education to the general public in all matters concerning the welfare of domestic pets. Our aim is to take domestic animals into care and restore their faith in human nature so that they are ready to move on to new homes.

We deal with health and behavioural problems as far as is possible, using our experience for both cats and dogs which, over the years, has proved very successful. Sometimes it just takes care, understanding, and a little time.

We look to place them with families who understand their individual needs. This is in the hope that a “FOREVER HOME” is found for every animal passing through our hands.


Lincs Dobermann


Lincs Dobermann Rescue founded by Paula de Vries, became an official charity in 2017. Although Lincolnshire based, we travel the length and breadth of the UK to help Dobies and families in need.

We are a non-profit organisation, all our team donate time and effort to ensure that no Dobie is left in need and that they all have a successful rescue and rehoming journey.

We rely on the support and generosity of our members to raise the funds we need to provide veterinary support to our Lincs dogs to ensure that when our Dobie is rehomed, they are in good health and that their rehoming journey is as stress free as possible.

We have a saying, “once a Lincs dog, always a Lincs dog”. It is so important for the dog and the new owner that they have the knowledge and confidence that rescue back up is there for them if they need it. This really underpins the values of Lincs Dobermann Rescue




Greenacres is a small, non-profit, animal rescue centre in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside. Founded in June 2008, when the need for our effort was recognised. Twelve years on we are now the only all animal rescue centre in Pembrokeshire. We try our very best to help any animal in need and although Pembrokeshire based we work throughout the UK.

Greenacres Rescue believes that every animal deserves a second chance, and with your support, we can hopefully give them just that.

From Foster
To Forever


My name is Mandy and I set up our Rescue Facebook page in 2017 after seeing how badly dogs were treated in Cyprus, Romania, Spain and other places. Originally set up to help rescues and potential adopters come together and I would help with fostering, homechecks, airport runs. However Pamela then joined me and we soon established being a rescue in our own right. We now reserve dogs from kill stations, abusive situations, neglected ones and get them to a safe place ready to travel to the UK. We try and help dogs from horrific situations, dogs that are overlooked, older dogs or disabled. EVERY LIFE IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR. We pride ourselves on the personal touch. Always at the end of the phone 24/7. Full back up rescue. All our dogs that we rescue have a story to tell. So we tell it. We are their voice....
