Clive, Glen and the rest of the volunteers are really dedicated to their work. They run a happy, clean, comfortable and loving environment for the dogs they rescue. They gave us peace of mind when we had to give up our two dogs due to a bereavement and they were rehomed to good people. They keep you updated on their progress as well. We can't thank them enough. Lee in Birmingham.

June and Lin in Birmingham adopted Cookie (formerly Bobby) in July 2011 he was 8 weeks old and adorable. He took an instant liking to our family and we took an instant liking to him. Mr and Mrs Wilson and colleagues do an excellent job in rehoming small dogs and with us went the extra mile getting him delivered to us. We would highly recommend them should anyone be considering taking in one of their doggies, many thanks to all at Clive Glen.

Clive and glen we want to say thank you so much for our 2 new family members Dolly and Molly the Basset hounds. They are so much loved by all and are enjoying all the fuss hugs and sofa time! It took us a few weeks and a few hundred miles but we got both sisters together.
Thanks again

Clive and Glen are super people who genuinely care for small dogs, giving lots of time and love to help rescue small dogs . I think if your looking for a dog, they are the people to go to. We couldn't be happier Daisy is so contented and happy. I would recommend them to anyone . Clive and Glen are friendly, helpul and informative.

We contacted Clive & Glenis as we lost our little lady and wanted a companion.
They thought that Georgio would be good for us and us for him. Glenis kept us up to date with all the things they were doing for him, he was vet checked nutured had his teeth cleaned and was innoculated. The dogs who end up with Clive and Glenis are the lucky ones, they live in such a comfortable lovely home, the dogs become part of their family, they treat each dog with love and help rehabilitate it prior to it going to its new home. We feel so blessed to have this tiny little fellow who is bursting with personality as part of our family.
God Bless you both with love Antonio Tansy & Georgio x x x

I can't thank glenis and clive enough, they took my pup in to rehome, they are such lovely people and you can just tell from talking to them that they are genuine dog lovers. It was heartbreaking having to let my pup go but I am pleased that he as gone to such a caring couple until he is rehomed to a loving home. I have been given updates on him. They keep him in their house not kennels like other places. You are a wonderful couple who do a wonderful thing for all these dogs. Its been a pleasure speaking with you and putting my mind at ease, little pup as settled with you and that makes me happy. Thank you, sarah xx
