It takes just a few steps to create your page supporting HOPE RESCUE.
Since 2005 HOPE RESCUE has been saving the lives of stray, abandoned and unwanted dogs that, through no fault of their own, need a second chance. We commit to take all the stray dogs from six Local Authorities in South Wales - Merthyr Tydfil, Torfaen, Blaenau Gwent, Bridgend, Vale of Glamorgan and Rhondda Cynon Taf - irrespective of their age, breed or medical condition. We also help owners in crisis who need to surrender their dogs, giving them peace of mind that their dogs will be rehomed responsibly.
In 2019, we helped 907 dogs, of which 569 were strays. This year we have been busier than ever. Incredibly, since the first lockdown began at the end of March and despite all the challenges we faced, we have still managed to rehome over 140 dogs. We have more dogs in foster homes than ever before, which enables us to help more dogs and provide them with the best possible care.
The impact of the pandemic has been dramatic, with our rescue centre closed to the public and volunteers; our charity shop, still reeling from the effects of Storm Dennis, was closed and in need of a full refurbishment. With our fundraising events cancelled, the boarding kennels closed, and our shop out of action, we took a significant and immediate hit on our income, losing around £1,000 a day.
We rely on the passion and support from our local community to help HOPE RESCUE continue to save the lives of dogs in need across South Wales. We would really appreciate it if you could help us raise some awareness through your local community so we can continue our much-needed work.

Event dates: Saturday 28th August – Monday 30th August
Join other dog lovers this August and take part in the Hope Rescue Barking Mad Wagathon. We want you and your four (or three) legged friends to join 1000's of others in raising funds for rescue dogs, like ours by walking '9k for k9'.
Now more than ever, dogs in crisis situations and their owners who may be giving up their beloved pets due to their own ill health or changes in their circumstances, desperately need our help. We are working hard to continue to provide essential support to the most vulnerable dogs in our local communities, providing them with urgent veterinary care, secure and cosy kennels, nutritious food, treats, toys and the training and behavioural support they will need to get them ready for their perfect forever homes. Taking part in this special event on 28th-29th August will help us to continue to say YES!
