The idea behind "I Need a Home" is to raise awareness of dogs & cats in both South Yorkshire's council stray kennels and smaller / independent rescue centres that are often overlooked in favour of animals from breeders and other sources. All the kennels and rescues featured provide a vital service helping and rehoming those in need, without their help many of them wont get a second chance and in the case of animals in stray kennels may be put to sleep simply to free up space for the next poor animal to potentially suffer the same fate.

Please take a few moments to look at the cats and dogs available, they just need some love and a few creature comforts, in exchange they can offer you a lifetime of devotion.

We are always looking out for more rescue centres and kennels to add to the site - if you know of anyone that would like their animals listed please get in touch.

Buster 12/02/017

A bit out of our area but posting this on the off chance that someone can help...

Hi there,

I am a veterinary nurse working in London and was alerted to a 15 month old dog that had been booked in for euthinasia 2 weeks ago. He is currently still on death row as all London rescues are full.  'Buster' is a 25 kg + staffie cross (photo and video attached) entire male, who has been living in a third floor flat with two children 10 and 12 years old. He has not been to training classes and was simply not thriving in his environment.  Due to his frustrations he has caused mild injury to one of the children and the owner (scratch and a bite-neither needed hospital treatment), I think 'Buster' will thrive given the right opportunity.  When I met him he showed no concerning behaviour, but he is s strong lad!  Has some ear problems, think due to allergies, however they have improved already. They just needed a good clean and some decent food/time.  He is great with other dogs, enjoys being out and about and is food orientated which is always helpful for positive enforcement.  I have some history of his likes and dislikes from the owner as well. She has signed him over. He is currently at a holding kennel, which I am paying for myself as I saw no other option as all very last minute. However they now need the space and want him out in 24 hours.

WEBSITE UPDATE (15/12/2016)

Many thanks to everyone who donated via JustGiving, we reached the target much quicker than expected :-) The software has been purchased and we've been busy working on the new site, there's still a way to go before its ready but we've already added two new features...

  • Contact form on each dogs page - On every dogs profile page there will be a contact form that sends any enquires directly to the rescue or pound
  • Rescue profiles - Each rescue centre can have an "about us" page giving visitors some basic contact and location info, an overview of their adoption process / fees and a link to all their dogs currently available for adoption.


The website has been up and running for a good few years now and we'd like to rebuild it so that new features can be added, make it easier to use and generally bring things up to date.  We've looked at our options and chosen the software needed, its just a case of paying for it....

We need £140 to purchase the software which on the grandscale of things may not seem much but the website carries no advertising and is free to use which means other than the husband and wife team who created the site cracking open their personal (and rather empty) piggy banks our only real option is to do some fund raising.

We've setup a Just Giving page, please visit it for more info and if possible please consider making a donation, even just sharing the link would be a great help :-)


We're having a few issues with the contact us form - it seems that messages are not always getting through to us and we're being drowned in spam at the same time....  We're working through the the backlog / junk and will post an update asap

Fund Raising For Rain Rescue
