Kaleb - A very special appeal

for one cheeky little Stafford.
A very heartfelt Appeal.

Kaleb has spent nearly two years of his life in kennels. At nearly 7 years old this is heart wrenching to say the least. Kaleb is not without his problems and needs a experienced home used to dogs that need life on their terms. He is very loving and loves a belly rub however can be difficult if under pressures and worried.

Kaleb came into care after his owner became terminally ill. He has won hearts with volunteers and yet sadly shows issues of institutionalised dogs. We are searching constantly to find him the niche home he deserves and needs yet despite many appeals he still remains in kennels.

Please call to discuss in more details. A Yorkshire home is needed so we can offer hands on help locally if needed.

Special appeal for gorgeous Axel - another deee-licious Stafford needing foster

This amazing Stafford has been undergoing many tests with our vet. He sadly has intermittent spasms where he is unable to co-ordinate his legs and body. Due to this we have been taking Axel on shorter walks. He is still playful and active initially.

We are currently waiting for a referral to a specialist vets for an MRI scan. Axel already has undergone sedation and had many X-rays however we are still unsure the cause of his problems.

We appeal for a very special home for this adorable dog. He is very loving and a real cuddle monster. His only problem is that he will be unable to compete in any marathons.

Please call us on 07843 151819 to discuss further. Help is always greatly received. We will support any medical care.

Dedicated to helping stray and abandoned dogs

Good Life Dog Rescue is a small charity in Yorkshire. We are dedicated to helping stray and abandoned dogs. We work tirelessly with limited funds to help dogs in need at local stray kennels. We work closely with the stray kennels to help stray dogs that have served their seven days and take them into our care or transport to other reputable rescues willing to help them find a new home. We are hands on and dedicated.

We always have many dogs in our care waiting for a forever home. All our dogs receive veterinary care, are wormed, fully vaccinated, health checked and neutered. We ensure all our dogs receive all the essential care they need until they find new homes. We ensure our dogs find the loving homes they deserve. Home checks and vet references from owners previous pets veterinary practices are needed if possible. Some are urgent cases from the stray kennels that have needed veterinary care. Through continuous advertising and special adopters we are able to help the dogs in need to go on and find a happy life.

Good Life Dog Rescues aim is to help the ever increasing population of stray and abandoned dogs in Yorkshire. Many are in kennels through no fault of their own. Finding these dogs a new start and a loving home is essential with some needing urgent help. Our kennelling and veterinary bills are huge. We exist on volunteers and no staff.


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, which will enable us to help more stray dogs in need.

The last couple of months have been very difficult for our charity. We have no staff to furlough and due to all fundraising events being cancelled for the foreseeable future we have struggled to keep afloat. We send as always thanks to kind individuals that have offered support. Every penny counts for our rescue dogs and goes to support the stray dogs and 
abandoned pets now in our care. Support is always greatly received.
