“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”

Roger Caras (photographer and writer)

Rescue dogs make wonderful companions, they may not always have had the best start in life but have lots of love and affection to give. Some of the featured / special appeal dogs are shown below but every dog on this site is more than deserving of a loving forever home. Please consider adopting a rescue or stray dog and make a hound happy.

“What greater gift than the love of a cat?”

Charles Dickens (author, Great Expectations)

Cats can be fiercely independent but still need love and a place to call home, sadly there are many out there that do not have this and end up in rescue looking for that forever home. The featured / special appeals are below but every cat on the site is looking for a home so please consider adding one to yours.

β€œThe purpose of life is to contribute in some way to making things better.”

Robert F. Kennedy (former US Senator)

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.
