volunteer - dog rescue centre Nantwich

A Nantwich dog rescue centre is appealing for residents to roll up their sleeves and help with some DIY at their volunteer open weekend.

Our Safe Haven kennels will be hosting two open days on March 23rd and 24th between 10am and 4pm.

Volunteers can work on a range of projects, including sanding over muddy front paddocks in a bid to make life more pleasant for staff and dogs.

Anyone is welcome to join the fun, but kennel staff are keen to have assistance from local DIY enthusiasts.

Kennel supervisor Catherine Bowyer said: “This is a great opportunity for local residents who might not be aware of our shelter to come and visit and find out a bit more about what we do, as well as helping us make some vital repairs and improvements.

“We’re extremely grateful for the support of our lovely community and we’ve been delighted by some of the donations of materials we’ve received from local businesses that will help us carry out our projects.”

Refreshments will be provided both days and volunteers will get to meet the shelter’s adorable residents that are looking for loving homes.

Our Safe Haven kennels is run by rescue organisation Pawprints to Freedom, which operates in Romania and the UK, rescuing dogs from kill shelters and other horrific situations.

More than 200 dogs were adopted out of OSH in 2023 – an increase from 23 the previous year.

  1. I am not convinced the dogs settle very well over here when trucked in from Romania. There is a reason stray dogs live together in “packs”.
    Romania should adopt the same policy as DALYAN in Turkey where the dogs (neutered and tagged by charity) are allowed to wander around the town during the day and return to a shelter in the evening. They are well fed by the locals and tourists alike and their system runs harmoniously. Please do your research and consider very carefully the background of how and why the dog has come to the UK…. I write this as “dogs” dont have voices !

  2. Des Turner says:

    maybe if they limited the breeding then there would not be this suffering, I can think of many children’s charities that could use some help, you never see anyone raising funds for kids in social care, its all about saving dogs

  3. Some people are all heart, aren’t they T Evans.

  4. What a miserable comment, T Evans.

  5. Maybe that’s because in their country they are usually not given the chance to find a loving home and are just put to sleep. Every dog deserves a second chance no matter which country they originate from.

  6. Dogs from the U.K. are looked after at the kennels

  7. would have thought we have enough dogs here in the uk to look after, now we are bringing them in
