In common with a lot of re-homing centres we find that some dogs stay in our care much longer than others.
It can just be a case of being overlooked but more commonly it is because they have specialised behavioural needs that a lot of people don’t have the time for or experience to cope with.
Some dogs have not been socialised when young so develop defensive and inappropriate behaviours towards strangers and other animals. Other dogs have experienced a trauma, neglect or abuse in their past, which has knocked their confidence with people.
It can take a long time to gain the trust of these dogs to be able to rehabilitate them so they can start to enjoy life and look for a new home. As we are a non-euthanasia charity we never give up on a dog and strive to make their time with us as happy and as comfortable as we can.
Your sponsorship helps us to provide all the love and care these special dogs desperately need until they are lucky enough to find a safe new and forever home.
