A DOG's TALE Rescue has a simple mission, to save and help dogs that need a second chance at a content life. We only use Foster homes as this allows the dogs to be in a home environment and show their true character. We take in dogs from all types of backgrounds and have a qualified team to be able to assess every dog for temperament and suitability to enable us to find the right foster or forever home. We are here to help the dogs! Are you here to help us??

Please help us help HUMPHREY

 Humphrey was rescued by Leah with A DOG’s TALE as RBU(rescue back up) Humphrey went to eb (emergency boarding) to get him away from a bad situation 😒 he wasn’t coping well in kennels so the wonderful Clare said she would foster him 😍 Clare fostered him and he lived with her and her furbabys until he recovered from his traumatic past , he was adopted by an amazing couple 😍 he has been living the best life he could ever wish for until 1 month ago his mum & dad got up to see Humphrey was unable to  get up 😒 he was rushed to the emergency vets and it was decided he needs to be transferred to a specialist veterinary hospital to see an orthopaedic vet and a neurosurgeon to try and find out why was going on.He was found to have a degenerative disc and so he was taken to surgery, he cane out of surgery and was recovering at home in crate test and daily physio. Sadly he’s back at the specialist vets, as sadly he's taken a turn for the worse. They predict that the disk below the one that was operated on has now bulged and is putting pressure on his sciatic nerve. They have suggested that further surgery won't necessarily be needed, which we pray will be the case. He is now back home and back on another 3 weeks rest and pain relief for a longer period of time this time round. They now think that it's potentially temprary nerve damage from the surgery, as opposed to a bulging disk. Fingers crossed πŸ™πŸ€žπŸ» xx

TESTIMONIAL BY DAWN (ADOPTER OF HER FOSTER DOG BELLA)

I fostered for A Dogs Tale, couldn't recommend them highly enough. Had so much support and encouragement throughout and they are very professional and thorough.  It's so clear how much these ladies genuinely love and care   for the dogs in their care. Even after their dogs are adopted and get a forever home A Dogs Tale still support them and their new owners whenever needed. Amazing rescue 😍 xx

TESTIMONIAL BY KELI (FOSTER CARER)

I fostered for A Dogs Tale and I cannot praise this rescue enough, nor can I fault them. They are professional, supportive, and caring for all the dogs that come in. They go out their way for the dog, the fosters and the families looking to adopt, they go above and beyond each and every day. They’re the first rescue I recommend to people looking to adopt, a rescue who caters to both the foster and future homes needs and the dogs needs. The most genuine ladies you could find to run a rescue, they will always be number 1 and a top rescue.

Q. Why are all the dogs neutered?

 

A. All of our dogs are neutered for two reasons, neutering has many health benefits but it also ensures none of our dogs are used for breeding purpose. 

We promote responsible dog ownership, part of this is ensuring all of our dogs are neutered prior to rehoming and educating the public about responsible ownership and the importance of neutering our furry friends ☺

A. All of the dogs that come under A DOG's TALE Rescue will have our full rescue back up for LIFE!
