matthew marmckean 10th dec Unfortunately due to uncontrollable circumstances we had to look to rehome our little patterjack Daisy. We tried Dogs Trust and got nowhere with them, they where really unhelpful. At that point we found this organisation and after the first 5 mins talking on the phone I had a really good feeling from them. They found her a foster home really quickly and picked her up the next day. It was a traumatic day but through out we where constantly asked if we where sure we where making the right decision. We got several updates with pictures seeing who she was with and how she was adapting right through till the fosterer decided to adopt her. We couldn't recommend this place enough.
jayne clinton 21st nov: We have adopted a golden oldie from you. I would like to say a big thank you. He is perfect and has settled in immediately. It makes a massive difference to the dogs welfare that you put them into foster homes, the transition to a permanent home is so smooth. We had a lot of information given to us and any questions answered quickly. The rescue is very informative regarding their dogs. I couldn’t recommend you highly enough.

After completing the adoption form I was quickly contacted. One the team were happy with my application I was offered a dog. I’m very happy to report that my dog has settled in well.

David plenty 2nd oct
We adopted Millie today she's a perfect addition to our family and will be cherished and spoilt rotten! It was clear that these people are so lovely and genuine and take great care to ensure the dogs go to loving homes and are well looked after in Foster Care rather than in stressful kennels. The advice about Millie and her history was also really useful. Thank you so much for your help and allowing us to adopt Millie!
Janie Anderson 23rd sept

carol yates 11th sept
I'm so glad that vets4pets suggested that I contact you when I needed to re home my mum's much loved little dog. It was a very hard decision for me to make as I wanted him to go to a home where he would be given as much love as my mum had given him. Glen was
very kind and listened to my concerns and I feel that her compassion and obvious love of her re homing service made things easier for both myself and little Toby. Many thanks. Carol
sue peach 10 sept

Cannot recommend you enough
Mel clayton 3rd sept
We are over the moon with our new addition to the family. We’re on day two and Azlo is already massivley coming out of his shell with his ‘big dog in a small body’ personality. The adoption process was swift, smooth and friendly- you can see the rescue truly put so much effort and care of into finding these dogs their perfect match and forever home.

:thank you so much for coco she is beautiful gets lots of cuddles and settling in really well
ms walkerdine 20th Aug 2019
Mr Darcie settled almost instantly into his home with my nan. He has is favourite blanket which he cuddles up in on the sofa with my nan and is always falling asleep and snoring away for hours whilst wrapped up in it! (you can see said blanket in photos). He also loves running around the garden and sniffing all the plants.
Anyone who comes to see him has said how lovely he is, and he instantly jumps on their lap and loves attention. He has taken to my mom, my cousin and myself really well and if we don't stroke him as much as he wants he licks our hand haha. Of course, his favourite person is my nan and follows her everywhere and sleeps next to her at night in bed!
He has also made friends with my shih Tzu, Blossom, who is half in one of the photos also and he follows her around the house and garden when we take her to visit.
Mr Darcie is a credit to your charity and you did such an amazing job rehabilitating him and teaching him how to lead a normal Chihuahua life, and we hope to make sure the rest of his life is long and happy!
Fred Rix 6 July Mo
Mo is settling in very well she follows me about she comes to look for me if she can’t see me, she loves her bed she doesn’t move all night and she’s still fast asleep when I get up in the morning, yes i think she likes being here with me, thank you for her.

Thank you to the rescue for taking care of Poppy and understanding her needs and where she would thrive best.
Ann Ennis 6 August Stanley
I just wanted to let you both know that Stanley is still going strong, I adopted Stanley back in 2013, you had just moved as I recall, Stanley was approximately 3 and a half, he's now coming up to 9 years old and is as fit as a fiddle, walking around 4 miles a day every day, he has taken over my life from the day I got him, helping through cancer in 2017 all clear now thankfully, I can't tell you how much I love this little boy, it was love at 1st sight, you both made it possible, I am be so grateful to you both for allowing me to adopt Stanley, may you both continue with your important work, giving us humans the chance to have a the friend for life. Stanley sends his love too.
Darren Harbach 6 August Ruby

Mark Heath 8 August Marley
Can I just say a massive thank you to Clive and Glenis for letting me give Marley his forever home. I’ve always had rescue dogs and learnt of the small dog rescue through one of my friends. His brother is a foster carer for small dog rescue. After two of my dogs passing away one fairly recently and one nearly two years ago. I knew I needed a new companion for my remaining dog. After browsing the dogs on the website that needed rehoming, (for quite some time may I add). One little face jumped out at me and made me fill in an adoption form. Clive and Glenis are two of the nicest people you could meet, the foster careers that I have met are really special people too. Once again thanks to all involved with small dog rescue. Mark.
Gary Barnes 29th july 2019

Karen 17 March 2019, Dandy
Thank you to small dog rescue for picking me and my family to be the new parents to Dandy- an amazingly cute, cuddly full of fun Cavapoo. One week on and we can’t imagine our lives without him. He has settled in so well and as I’m writing this he, and our other cavapoo girl are curled up together like an old married couple! What a truly amazing job all the people at small dog rescue do in opening their hearts and homes to dogs who haven’t had the love and kindness they deserve. We can’t thank you enough for enriching our lives xx

After sadly coming to the decision to rehome my lovely boy due to my own ill health I was overwhelmed by the loving support and updates received from the staff, a wonderful rescue centre with purely the dogs best interests in mind, he’s received the medical care needed and a foster home before his forever home is found ... truly grateful x

Thank you to Clive and Glenis for setting me up to take Pip and give him a forever home. Also to Dave who fostered him and clearly did such a good job because he is just the happiest little dog, so loving and well behaved. I couldn't recommend Small Dog Rescue more. They have changed my life by giving him to me!
Valerie. 18 November 2018 Ben the Spaniel
We can’t thank you enough for placing dear Ben with us. He is the sweetest, most loving little dog and we love him right back. We’ve only had him for a week, but he already feels like part of the family and he has enhanced our lives beyond our wildest dreams. It must have been very hard for his last owners to part with him but Clive and Glenis went out of their way to make sure they found the perfect home for him. From start to finish, Ben’s welfare was their top priority. We are in complete admiration of you both and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Mr and Mrs Williams22 January 2018 at 07:24
When we realised we had to give up our girl puppy our main concern was that she went to people who knew how to look after her. Sheila's description of their rigorous vetting procedures immediately reassured us that we were doing the right thing in entrusting our dog to their care. We found them to be non judgmental, caring, selfless and dedicated. Our little dog has now been re-homed and our grateful thanks goes to Sheila and all the team of volunteers who provide this excellent service. Keep up the good work and best wishes for the future.
