SPRING RESCUE - LIVING IN THE NEW COVID-19 WORLD

 

We have continued to take in and rehome dogs throughout the pandemic whilst keeping the safety and wellbeing of our dogs and volunteers at the heart of our organisation, this has of course had an impact on how we go about rehoming.

 

OPTION 1

If you have been approved to apply for dogs either by phone call or after a home visit, please continue to note interest as advised. If you have any queries regarding this, please contact your local Area Coordinator HERE.

 

OPTION 2

If you have not yet completed an application to rehome one of our dogs, please read through the application guidance thoroughly and complete our application form and your local Area Coordinator will be in touch to discuss further. You can find the application form HERE.

 

 

The health and wellbeing of our dogs and our volunteers is at the heart of our organisation.

 

PLEASE NOTE: our COVID policies and  guidelines may change without notice to keep in step with government policy, so do please keep checking back to our website.

 

The lockdown also means we are keeping dogs for longer in foster or in some cases kennels, which is adding to our costs. And of course, we are unable to do our usual fundraising at fairs and dog events.

 

You can help us by making a donation. Click the button below to see how you can help

Murphy's CV: Hi, my name is Murphy and I’m sure you’ll agree that I am a very gorgeous boy indeed. I need to be an only dog as I enjoy being the centre of attention. I have been with my foster family for 4 weeks and they say I am such a good boy with a lovely nature and a joy to have and be with. I live in quite a rural place and love my walks along the river path, running up and down the embankments, rooting through the bushes and undergrowth and walks in the hills.  But most of all I LOVE swimming in the river.  I really do love being outside, even if it’s in the garden, my tail wags all the time.  I used to drag my foster mum along on our walks but she has been teaching me about walking to heel. I’m getting much better but you will need to keep working with me on that. I am a very strong boy. I love being in the car cos it means we are off on an adventure I would love a home where I will still get my rural walks and definitely get to swim. A garden is a must for me; I spend a lot of time there.  I do need to have my balls to play with and I like you to throw them to me again and again! I don’t mind meeting other dogs when I’m out and usually I walk past them; I do like to stop to speak to people and they always tell me I’m a very good boy. I sleep soundly in my own bed all night and I don’t mind being left alone for a little while; I just settle in my bed. I don’t bark much- only when there is a knock at the door. Nobody is perfect though! I DO NOT like being picked up, I will growl and show you my teeth! And sometimes when I’m being petted I will grumble a little bit at you. I do need to lose some weight and have special ‘diet’ biscuits to help. So as you can see I’m nearly perfect, and my foster mum tells me that my forever family are going to be so lucky to have me and that  I’m going to bring lots of joy and happiness. Are you that family?? *Please note: do not note interest in Murphy unless you have been home-checked or been approved by email and can offer him a dog free home*

Jake's CV: Hello everyone, I'm Jake, very pleased to meet you. Let me tell you a bit about me. I am approx 9 years old My foster family said I have been very well looked after & loved in my previous home. I'm a very clever boy, well trained and obviously very handsome. I do have a small fatty lump on my back leg, it has been investigated by 2 vets!!! It does not cause me any issues and both vets were not concerned by it. I have settled very quickly into my foster home. I am used to being the only dog in the house so would need a dog free home. I'm very clean and tidy about the house. I'm not bothered by noises outside or inside, I will leave the room when it's being hoovered with no fuss and I like the blowy thing that dries my hair. I'm not much of a barker except when a dog walks past the window or approaches too quickly when I'm on a walk, my foster family are doing a wee bit of work on that with me. If a dog tries to dominate me, I tell them no. My foster dads parents have a dog and I like him, he licks my ears. I can be left on my own at home, I don't make a mess and I'm not anxious. Although I haven't been tested with cats in the home when I see them outside I ignore them, but I am a bit curious. I walk really well on the lead, my foster family have switched me to a harness and I really like that more than a collar and lead. If I pull they just check me and I come right back to heel. I love my walks. I have been out walking in parks, woods, by the river, quiet streets, busy streets, long walks, short walks, you name it, I like them all. I really like the walks by water and I will strain on the lead to get in there, the water has been too fast where my foster family walk me, so I just make do with paddling in puddles for now! I do like to go to the secure dog park where I can run and run and play fetch with the ball. I'm not much of one for toys but I do love a ball or 10! They have also reinforced in me to stop and wait by the roadside before crossing, I'm a fast learner and a very clever boy! I travel very well in the boot of the car, I like to sit at the window and watch the world go by or have a snooze. I have no guarding issues with food or toys and I have shown no aggression in my foster home. I don't bark at the doorbell or visitors coming in, I like to say hello and get my belly rubbed. I'm embarrassed to say I've put on a bit of weight, but hey, who didn't during lockdown? My foster family's working on that with me and I'm happy to say it's paying off already. My foster family moved me to Purina Beyond dry dog food, it's yummy. They give me praise if I do something well and save treats for when I'm a really good boy, that helps with my weight loss.   My human foster brother is 12. I really like him, he's fun and he plays with me a lot, we like to play Hide & Seek. I've met his friends, they think I'm clever, who could argue? I go to watch him play football and I'm very well behaved in the crowd with people shouting and clapping. I sleep on my own bed at night like a good boy. I'm good about the house, I help tidy up, especially any titbits that fall on the floor, if you snooze you lose, right? I can open closed doors for you and I will bring you socks or slippers I find at the side of the bed, but I don't chew them. I am very gentle when you take things I am not supposed to have in my mouth. One of my favourite places to be is in the kitchen when people are cooking and I like to stand up to see if I can snaffle any food from the worktop, but when I'm told to, I get down. I'm well behaved when I go to other people's house and once I have a sniff about it I will lie down. I am very much a Springer Spaniel, I like to do the Springer Sprawl and have my belly rubbed. My foster family say I'm a very loving boy. If you would like me to be your forever boy, you know what to do. I really look forward to meeting you. Love Jake *Please only note interest in Jake if you have been home-checked or approved by email and can offer him a dog free home*

Holly Key Information
SRS Name: Holly
Ref No: 29001392
Location: Strathclyde: Argyll
Breed: English Springer Spaniel

Holly's CV: Holly is a 3 year old English Springer Spaniel who needs an experienced home. Due to a lack of early socialisation she can be wary of both people and dogs and can become very anxious and aggressive in unknown situations. She is accepting of strangers if the interaction takes place at her pace however if the person / dog forces the issue she will become fearful and bark at them. While out walking she becomes very focused on scents and will react if someone tries to interrupt her while she is ‘busy’. Her foster carers are working on encouraging her to stay calm and focus on them while out. Due to her pulling she has been introduced to a Gentle Leader head collar. Like many dogs Holly was unnerved at being placed in a new environment and has taken several weeks for her to start to relax and settle into her foster home (she is currently on YuCalm). Her foster carers have allowed her to settle in at her own pace and she is becoming the ideal house guest. She can, however, become grumpy in the evenings if she has been over stimulated or not had enough rest during the day. Holly loves running around a secure field, chasing a ball however she is no longer allowed the ball in the house as she has previously shown signs of resource guarding balls and toys indoors. She has been introduced to clicker training, which she loves, and her foster carers have been teaching lots of new exercises. She is a very quick learner! Holly would be best suited to an adult only, pet free household preferably in a semi-rural location. Thanks to the calmness and patience of her foster carers Holly has come on in leaps and bounds while with them and is a dog with great potential. Ongoing behavioural support will be in place for the adopters of Holly. Be aware Holly will require multiple visits to allow her to get to know her potential adopters. *Please only note interest in Holly if you have been home-checked or approved by email*
