Welcome to the online home of                Willow Dog Rescue.

We are a small charity formed in June 2010, dedicated to the rescuing and rehoming of abandoned dogs in South Yorkshire. Our aim is to save dogs from the council pounds in Yorkshire and give them a 2nd chance of a happy life.

 

Each year approximately 100,000 dogs are picked up from our streets.  If they are not microchipped or have any identification they are taken to the local pound.  From this moment the clock starts ticking....the dog only has 7 days before it is in danger of being destroyed. It is at this point the dog must rely on luck....is he in one of the pounds that humanely care for their dogs?  Will his owner find him in time? Or has he been unfortunate enough to be forgotten and forced to live his last few days unwanted and unloved?

 

A dogs time in the pound will often be spent terrified, alone and confused.  They will sometimes be kept in filthy, squalid condtintions and in some pounds, the dogs won't even be fed the day before they die....why waste the food? It is at this point we try to rescue as many dogs as possible.  However, it is a sad fact that we can't save them all.  This is why we need help from volunteers and funding from the general public to ensure our work continues. 

 

Everyone involved with Willow Dog Rescue is a volunteer so no paid staff!  This means that 100% of donations or funds raised go directly to helping the dogs...guaranteed!

Rehoming Policy: If you are needing to rehome your dog please DO NOT contact Willow Dog Rescue. It is our policy to only take in dogs from death row at the pound and not from peoples homes. We are unable to help with any enquiries of this nature.
