Dogs Trust Leeds

At the heart of Leeds you can find a rehoming centre that takes in a variety of dog breeds.

Dogs Trust Leeds’ most recent arrival is a short hair chihuahua called Biggie who was found abandoned in Roundhay.

Underweight with an eye infection, the tiny dog was rescued and cared for by Dogs Trust and is now ready to find a forever family.

Dogs Trust also accommodates a Boxer called Dottie, a Mastiff called Charlie and a Lurcher called Copper to name a few.

Best Life Dog Rescue, Doncaster

During the pandemic in 2020, this centre found loving homes for over 100 dogs.

Founded in the early 1990s, Best Life Dog Rescue believes that every dog deserves a chance at a happy life and has rehomed almost 1,000 dogs that would otherwise have been euthanised.

The centre currently has a four-year-old Collie/Springer cross called Koda who is timid and shy but very friendly, a nine-month-old Shepherd/Retriever cross called Orso who is great with people, and Wally, a two to three year old Dachshund with a sociable personality.

Yorkshire Rose Dog Rescue, Cleckheaton

Inspired by their mutual love of animals, the Yorkshire Rose Dog Rescue is made up of volunteers who dedicate themselves to finding good homes for their dogs.

All dogs are vaccinated, micro chipped, flead, wormed, and neutered before they are rehomed.

One of their guests is 15-month-old Cockapoo, Ted, who needs an experienced home with a family who know how to treat him.
