Welcome

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.

07/11/17 Volunteering

We received this email the other day..

I work for xxxx in Sheffield and as a part of our job we are given volunteer/charity days. I was wondering whether you would like any help with anything for a day. Me and my family have 5 dogs ourselves so I am no stranger to caring for them and would love the opportunity to help out wherever i can.

If anyone would like to take them up on their very kind offer please get in touch and we'll forward the message on :-)

 

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.

WEBSITE REBUILD & FUND RAISING (22/10/2016)

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 :-)

CONCTACT FORM ISSUES (11/03/2015)

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

Featured Animals

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.

Fund Raising For Rain Rescue

We work closely with Rain Rescue and they provided us with a lot of help in getting the site up and running - please help us to return the favour and consider making a regular donation for any amount possible, it really does make a huge difference to them.

If your unable to do this please take a look at other ways to donate on their website.
