DID YOU KNOW?
Last year we helped over 250 stray dogs
LACEY - DESPERATE FOR A HOME Lacey is a deaf American Bulldog. She is our longest stayer.
Are you a rescue flag flyer?
Lacey came into care is September 2020 from a Yorkshire stray pound. Sadly she has seen the seasons changes and many dogs come and go to pastures new. She has literally spent all her life in kennels and is now nearly four years old. Lacey is totally deaf and is gorgeous and very special. Lacey arrived as a skinny youngster suffering from sore skin and sore ears.
Due to her deafness she can sometimes struggle to communicate and be reactive with strangers and other dogs. She needs a very special human that has time for guidance, company and training. Most of all this young lady needs lots of love and understanding. She is amazing. Lacey has had a tough life and we desperately need to find her a special home and the opportunity to shine. She has so much to give yet remains overlooked.
Please call to discuss Lacey in more detail. We would not rehome Lacey with young children and a preferred home is as an only dog. Lacey is one "Lonely Hearts Club" member.
SPECIAL APPEAL. Bwuno, Bow and Button, Princess and Angel are long overdue home comforts.
Bwuno is a chunky Staffy cross. He is a loveable rogue but adorable. Sadly in kennels for eighteen months. Button and Bow need a small dog loving home. They are a Jack Russell and a Pomeranian. See their profile pages.
Princess is a Brindle Stafford and her best friend is a Staffy cross. They both arrived struggling with trauma but have made amazing progress. They need a home together.
All our dogs have come into our care from Yorkshire stray kennels. They have so much love to give and sadly nobody to give it to. Every dog has a profile page and their own sad story to tell. We ask people to consider the long stayers at Good Life. Rehoming is a crucial part of our charity. Can you offer our dogs a new lease of life. From "Homeless to Happy" is always our aim.
Dedicated to helping stray and abandoned dogs
Good Life Dog Rescue is a registered charity in Yorkshire. We are dedicated to helping stray and abandoned dogs left waiting at local stray council kennels. We work tirelessly with limited funds to help dogs in need at local stray kennels. We are very hands on and dedicated in helping the dogs that have no voice and visit the stray kennels every week. Some of our rescue dogs have suffered neglect, abuse and have endured a difficult start in life at the hands of a human. We have many that need urgent medical care.
Our vet and kennelling bills are huge every month and every effort is made to raise funds to support the dogs in our care. We do not own our own rescue kennels and pay to board our dogs at kennels in Worksop. We do not pay staff so every penny goes back into supporting the dogs in need. We are a registered charity and the founder of Good Life lives in Leeds. This is our charity corresponding address. Every penny raised goes towards the care of the dogs. We pay no wages and exist with few volunteers so time is very precious and our workload is immense. Our dedication and passion is what keeps us going.
Our aim is to provide essential help for the dogs and through assessments maintain an accurate match of our dog with any potential adopter. All our dogs receive veterinary care, health checks, full vaccinations and neutering as part of our adoption procedure. Essential care and a dedication to the welfare of each dog is met until a perfect human and hound match is found. Home checks and vet references from owners previous pets veterinary practices are needed if possible prior adoption.
As a small rescue support is vitally important to us. With limited help we rely on donations and fundraising events. Any help is appreciated by donators. Please contact us for more details about the work we do and how you can help us. We are always grateful for support however small.
We work extremely hard to ensure that adopters are matched well with the rescue dogs in our care. Many factors have to be considered for each individual dogs needs. Lifestyle, working hours and whether you have a family are all crucial in matching our homeless hounds with humans. Our aim is to match every dog with the right human and the perfect home environment.
Please visit our "How to Adopt" on our News page. More information and details about how to adopt a rescue dog are available to read prior to filling in an application. Due to a huge increase in people wanting to adopt dogs your patience is very much appreciated.
These ladies are amazing. They have turned many corners after arriving in our care as two petrified stray dogs.
