Sponsored Walk 2019


Click on the picture to view the gallery. This year's sponsored walk took place at the usual Rutland Water's south shore and it was fantastic to see some familiar faces as well as dogs who have been rehomed in the past year. Staff and volunteers took dogs who are currently waiting for their forever homes and they enjoyed their afternoon out walking alongside many other dogs. Thank you to all who attended and for your continued support on helping us to look after the animals in our care. See you next year!

Hi All Well it`s been 3 months since I left you for my new home so I thought I send you an e-mail to let you know how I am getting on. It`s great here, I get plenty of fuss and get fed well and to cap it all I get my `Dreamies` every day (yum yum); -------- on occassions when they have Tuna sanies I get some as well as a special treat. I`m out and about quite a bit now the weather is a little warmer but return regularly to top up with nosh (it`s hard work climbing fences and onto gargae roofs). I love bobbing the garden bugs and chasing the birds; caught one already (only injured it) but my master picked me up so it got away (spoil sport). In the evenings I`m turning into quite

Hi, I adopted Dora from you back in October and I tried to email you some photos around Christmas time but I just realised that I typed the email address incorrectly so you never received them. I wanted to thank you for allowing me to adopt her, it feels like she was meant to come to me when she did, and she is definitely a part of the family now. Please find attached photos of her. Thank you Darren

Nala (Formerly Molly)


Hi, It's me Nala (Aka Molly). I just thought I'd check in with you. It's been 8 months since I was adopted and so much has happened in that time! I've had my first Christmas. I spent this around my friend Missy's house and I got lots of presents. I was really excited for my Christmas turkey! This February, I went to the beach for the first time with my new family. I was in awe of the sea, but would run away from the waves when they came back in towards me. I also helped my mum and dad get engaged! I had the ring in a small bag on my collar! Thank you everyone for finding me my family! Nala x

Benson (Formerly Tyson)


Hello Friends at Leicester Animal Rescue, its Benson here, with a progress report from my new home. I am settling in very nicely with my new owners (Mark and Louise) and I have quickly adapted to my new name ( usually when I hear it, it means I am going to get fed, or a walk, or playtime, or a cuddle, so it didn’t take long to learn it!). As you will see from the attached photos, I am making myself at home, and I have heard my new owners telling people that I have got my “paws under the table”. Near to where I live there are some lovely woods and fields, and I enjoy going for walks there with all the different paths and interesting smells. This morning they took me up to the local playing fields. My

Hello all, I just wanted to send you a message to let you know how much we love Roxie and how well she has settled in to her forever home. Thank you for pairing us up with our perfect pet! She’s just wonderful; she loves the attention we all give her and has really enjoyed exploring the house over the last couple of days. She’s been for her second round of vaccinations this morning and is eating and drinking well (as well as knowing exactly how to use the litter tray! What a dream!) Thank you again for all your help in finding her, she is just perfect. (She’s also doing a great job of hearing the kids read at breakfast time, much to the delight of their teachers!) Kind regards, Rebecca

Hi Guys Buddy has settled really well and made himself at home really quickly he fits in to the family really well and we just adore him. Our family's have all been round to meet him  and they have also fell in love with him. He his quite a character and there hasn't been a dull moment with him he makes us all laugh. We will send some pictures with Buddy's progress just so you have an update with how he is getting on. He loves his walks and as been learning recall with my partner which my partner let him off the training lead today on the field and was a good boy and come back when he was called. He's reacting well to his commands although he can be stubborn at times 😂 he's reacting really well. He
