Dog Samaritans -
Rescue dogs that need homes
 
Below are  the rescue dogs that are currently in dog rescue near Shrewsbury  in Shropshire, in the west midlands, through Dog Samaritans the rehoming branch of Animal Samaritans animal charity.  These rescue dogs are all looking for a loving home. All potential homes would need to have  a home check and we ask for a minimum of £100 donation for each rescue dog, some  dogs will be a higher donation. Our rescue dogs are wormed, treated for fleas and start a vaccination programme on entering the kennels, dogs rehomed from Nipstone kennels will be micro-chipped free of charge, the kennels are open from 10am-4pm everyday and viewing our dogs are by appointment only. We can also give financial assistance with neutering and spaying of our rescue dogs.
So if you are considering a rescue dog please browse our dogs. Our web site is  updated on a daily basis so all rescue dogs on our site are available.
If you are planning a holiday it is best to wait till you return before you choose a dog, if you do wish to reserve a dog until  after your holiday, we would ask you to pay the boarding of that dog until you pick the dog up.
 
Some rescue dogs come in as strays, so their age is approximate and are assessed in kennels re- temperement. Other rescue dogs come in from homes, so we have the history the owners have given us.
If you  feel you can offer the perfect home to one of these wonderful rescue dogs then please call Carol on 01588 676106 often the phone can be busy so: email dogs@dogsamaritans.org.uk. and leave your name and phone number. If telephoning please ring after 9am and before 8pm.
 Carol will help you find the ideal doggie match for your circumstances.

Zac 5 year male lurcher
I love fuss and walks, playing with my toys, fetching balls. I can be a little strong on the lead but only when i am excited about going out. I have lots of energy but also love my sleep, i sleep in my owners bedroom as i dont like being alone downstairs. Friendly with other dogs but dont like cats, no young children as i might knock them over.
