Stokenchurch Dog Rescue was set up by local residents in 1963 to save the lives of stray, abandoned and unwanted dogs, as well as those impounded by the police. Since then we have successfully rehomed thousands of dogs and are well known for our non-destruct policy.
Since the police gave up providing this service, all stray and unwanted dogs are now taken to council pounds. We work closely with these organisations to ensure that we can rescue as many dogs as we are able and then find them safe and loving homes. We also work with members of the public who need to find a new home for their dogs.
Our sole aim is to find suitable and loving homes for all the dogs in our care. Once a dog arrives at our rescue centre, it is given a medical assessment and any immediate treatment is provided. The dog will then stay in our isolation unit for 7-10 days to ensure it is fit and healthy. During this time, our staff are able to observe the dog during walks and socialisation to assess its temperament.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we have been able to refurbish our dog rooms and facilities and we have 41 bright, modern and comfortable dog rooms, with a variety of toys and comfortable bedding to make sure our dogs live in a relaxed and homely environment during their stay with us. Whenever possible, dogs are given a companion to provide company and all our rooms have an en-suite patio area where the dogs can stretch their legs and play between walks.
We do not receive any form of statutory funding, so all running costs and overheads are self-supported and self-financed. Therefore our work would not be possible without donations from kind supporters.
As with many rescues in the current climate we are desperately in need of your support whether it be by organising fundraisers, making donations, playing our Weather Lottery, ordering us vital supplies from our Amazon Wishlist, sponsoring a dog or becoming a Member.
As a Member of Stokenchurch Dog Rescue you will help ensure that we can continue our vital work. Also you will receive regular newsletters with all the news from Tower Farm and details of fundraising events, along with many other items of interest to dog lovers.
It's time to give rescue dogs a much bigger platform - there's nothing as rewarding as giving a dog in need a second chance in life.
