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.
RAW - SPONSORED DOG WALK
Royston Ainimal Welfare's annual Sponsored Dog Walk will be held Sunday May 18th, starting at 11:00 am.
The walk will start and finish at Notton Village Hall and will be around 5 miles in length. The route will be across countryside fields to Newmillerdam and is mostly level walking with one steep hill.
All the dogs always enjoy the walk, its a great way to socialise your dog with others and raise money for a good cause at the same time. It's also great for us to meet our adopted dogs and their owners!
The walk starts and ends at Notten Village Hall, 117-123 George Ln, Notton, Wakefield WF4 2
There is plenty of space to park your car for free.
Hope to see you there!
The animals below are just a small highlight of the many listed here, you view and search them all using the options at the top left - to specify "any" as a search criteria just leave that option blank / as it is.
