About Us

We are small, local rescue dedicated to helping to rehome dogs in West Oxfordshire. We operate by using foster homes as we believe this gives us the best opportunity to fully assess a dog before rehoming him or her. We help local strays and also dogs that are unable to be kept in their current home for a variety of reasons.  We help dogs of ALL shapes and sizes and any age.  All our dogs are fully vaccinated, microchipped, neutered, frontlined, wormed and assessed in home environment before we rehome them. Should you adopt a puppy from us, you will be required to sign a declaration at the time of adopting to have the puppy neutered at the appropriate age. Please read our adoption proceedures for further details on how we rehome dogs.
If you have a dog that you are looking to rehome,  please do contact us and we will do our best to help you.

Are you are looking to rehome a rescue dog? If so PLEASE call us for a chat and we can tell you about  the dogs that we currently  have in our care, that are looking for homes and who may be suitable to join your family.

We are always looking for foster carers to look after dogs that need to come into our care. If you think you could help us, please get in touch!

We are also very grateful for any donations such as plastic beds, leads, collars, treats, toys, food etc etc. Anything we don’t need, we ensure that it goes to another local rescue that we work closely with. So whatever you kindly donate,  it will help other local, needy dogs.
And finally.... why do we do it?

The Starfish Story - adapted from The Star Thrower by Loren Eiseley (1907 - 1977)

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"

The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean."

"I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man.

To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die."

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "It made a difference for that one."
