Featured Dog

Lucaluca- romanian

Sex - Male

Age - 1-2 years

Breed - Romanian Cross

Size - Medium

History - Luca has come over from Romania where there are thousands of stray dogs living on the streets. He is one of the lucky few who got brought to England for the chance at a better life. Romanian dogs are often treated badly and so they learn early in life to be cautious of humans in their fight for survival.

Personality - Luca is slowly starting to come out of his shell. Once you win his affection he likes having his ears rubbed and is starting to play with toys. He's very wary of people and takes time to warm up. It's such a rewarding moment when he comes out to greet you and asks for a love.

A little message from Luca -

"I'm still very scared and frightened that something bad might happen to me, life was hard in Romania. I want a quiet home with a nice human I can learn to trust"

Specific Requirements - No dogs, may be able to live with cats, adult only home (16yrs+)

Adoption Fee - £200

Fundraising by Recycling

Fundraising by Recycling

We have teamed up with several recycling companies in order to earn some extra income for the rescue by collecting donations of certain items that can be recycled in exchange for donations. We are collecting these items at the centre and then we send them away and receive a donation in return. If you have any of the items on the list that you are able to donate to us then we would be very grateful. items can be dropped off at the centre whenever we are open, and if you have a large amount of items that you are not able to transport then please let us know and we may be able to arrange to collect them.


Used Stamps

We collect any used stamps for recycling. The only requirement is that they need to be cut from the envelope with a small border around the actual stamp. Why not ask at work if you can collect stamps there?



Printer and Toner cartridges

We collect cartridges to be sent in for re-filling, for this we receive a small donation for each cartridge that we collect. We can take any cartridge from any printer or copier except Kodak ones. If you work somewhere which uses printers and copiers why not ask what they do with their empty cartridges?


Second-Hand Clothing

We collect bags of second-hand clothes, shoes, bags and belts and deliver them to a company who sends them abroad to less developed countries in exchange for a small donation per kilo of items collected. This is a great way of helping our dogs and helping those abroad who can't afford to buy decent clothing. So why not have a good clear out and help out our doggies at the same time?



Foreign Currency

This is a new form of recycling for us. We have a tendency to get a lot of foreign coins in our collection buckets, so we looked into recycling and found that there are several options for recycling currency so we have decided to give it a try. So why not have a good root around at home and see what you have left over from your summer holidays?


Gold and Silver Jewellery

Another new way we are going to try to raise some much-needed funds is by collecting unwanted or broken Gold and Silver jewellery. Just the odd earring or bit of broken chain can be worth a lot to the rescue. If you have even just the smallest piece that you would be willing to donate we would be very grateful.



If you have any unwanted items to donate for us to recycle then please drop them into the centre, or if you have a large amount that needs collecting then please get in touch and we will arrange to come and pick them up. Also if you would like a poster to go in your workplace to advertise for items such as stamps and toner cartridges please let us know and we will print some out or email them to you.
