DID YOU KNOW?
Last year we helped over 250 stray dogs

SPECIAL APPEAL FOR PENNY. This amazing sweet natured Staffy was due to be put to sleep at the vets.
She is now in our care and loving her walks and cuddles.
Please support our heartfelt appeal. Penny is a wonderful Brindle Staffy and is a real comic.

We received a call from a vets in South Yorkshire asking us to help Penny as an emergency. Penny was sat at the vets about to be euthanised after her owner passed away. How could we refuse. This girl is a darling dog.

Penny is overweight through lack of exercise however is now getting plenty of walks in our care. She is slowly staring to shed the pounds. Penny adores a cuddle and people and gets very excited to be going on her walks. She is so comical and an absolute joy. Penny will need to be an only dog as she doesn't like her personal space invaded. She is truly the peoples friend and we now welcome calls of interest and applications. This lady needs home comforts.

NORA  - Loyal and loving and in need of a special home.
PLEASE SUPPORT ADOPTION

This stunning girl is Nora. She is a German Shepherd cross who came into our care as a very skinny stray. She will be two years old in June and sadly has endured a sad life.

Nora is ball crazy and a foodie and so beautiful. She will do anything for a toy or a ball and loves attention. She has formed a huge bond with everyone at kennels and is now ready to find a new start. Nora will need an active home where someone adores this breed and loves an outdoorsy adventure. Please support adoption. Nora is a beautiful dog.

We appeal to rescue minded adopters to please consider larger dogs left behind. Nora has so much love to give and will make someone a very loyal girl. She needs a dedicated adopter who is prepared to continue with guidance and training. CALLS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO DISCUSS OUR DOGS. WE ADORE THIS BEAUTIFUL GIRL.

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 are currently boarding our dogs at two different kennels in Yorkshire. We are no longer boarding our rescue 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.

Adoption Process

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.

FUNDRAISING AT GOOD LIFE DOG RESCUE

Fundraising is very important to us. We have limited funds and are self supported and run completely on few volunteers. We do not pay wages so every penny will go back into supporting the strays from Yorkshire pounds. Our charity continues to survive on a passion and dedication for the stray dogs in need waiting at local council stray kennels.

Fabulous supporters and donators to many rescues.
For every tin of treats bought, another is donatored to a rescue of purchasers choice. Brilliant! Click on image to see their site.

All monies raised through fundraising contributes to our vet and kennelling fees. Love and thanks are sent to everyone that supports us along the way.

We have proudly been supported by...
