Paddy - A fabulous Lurcher looking for a home

Paddy the Lurcher

At 18 months old our beauiful lurcher boy Paddy has never known what it is like to be part of a loving family.  Paddy is bright and social and really loves the company of people and other dogs; this young dog really wants to please and with his bright intelligence learns very quickly.

Paddy is a gentle soul who is young and has all the exuberance of youth.  He would be very happy living with another chilled dog, his family could be large or small, with or without children; all Paddy really wants is someone who will share their life with him, perhaps their sofa, and give him lots of love, which will be returned many times over.  Paddy has a very special place in our hearts, if you love lurchers and think you can give him one in yours please give us a call on 01453 890014. To see more pictures and video footage of Paddy, simply click on his picture. To find out more about adopting Paddy click on this link.

Jessie: a Staffie girl in need of a new residence

Jessie a Staffie GirlMeet Jessie, a 7-year old Staffordshire Bull Terrier X with a real passion for the outdoors. Whether it be a gentle countryside walk (due to her impeccable behaviour whilst on the lead), or a play session with one of her favourite toys, Jessie will continue to entertain with her energetic and joyful antics.

The perfect home for Jessie would be one where she has someone around for most of the day, happy to indulge in both play and cuddles. Her confidence had grown massively during her time with us, but she would benefit from being the pet in the household in order for her to enjoy lots of attention! Jessie is a beautiful girl who is just looking for the opportunity to share many exciting adventures with that perfect person.

About Us

For over 75 years we have provided welfare for local animals. As well as finding new homes for many unwanted animals each year, we provide a twice weekly veterinary clinic, reduced fee neutering and veterinary help vouchers for people within the community on income support. We are an independent charity and rely on local support to generate funds to enable us to deliver local animal welfare. A substantial proportion of our income is generated by our shops in Stroud, Nailsworth, Tetbury (furniture and electricals), Wotton-under-Edge and Cirencester. We are always looking for people who are willing to help out and for donations of good quality, saleable items. You could really make a difference.
