Epsom Canine Rescue was formed in 1995 and specialise in unwanted and subsequently neglected dogs within the local vicinity of Epsom. More recently we have also started to assist in helping re-home Welsh pound dogs whose plight is pretty dire. Our principle role is the rescue and re-homing of unwanted and stray canines, undertaking veterinary treatment as necessary and neutering where possible, all this prior to sourcing a suitable new home. Any animals in distress that we are unable to deal with directly due to our limited size and resources are referred immediately to other specialist organisations. We adopt the use of experienced foster homes during the re-homing process, especially with either very young or very old charges. We try to use boarding kennels only as a last resort.
All our activities are carried out on a purely voluntary basis and financed solely by self generated funds. Any contributions, monetary or otherwise, are greatly appreciated.
All potential new homes are checked thoroughly before the dog is released into their care. Subsequent follow-up calls are made to ensure that the animal settles and to eliminate any problems that may arise. Our dogs are re-homed as family pets. Most have had a bad start in life and so we do not place any dogs in a home where they would be living outside or left alone for long periods of time. We never destroy a healthy dog, so please help us to give them a second chance.
Like most small rescues we do not have a centre you can just turn up & visit. Most of our dogs are being cared for in foster homes in the local area, whilst some are in private boarding kennels. All dogs that we have available are shown on our website. If you are interested in meeting and potentially homing any of them we would ask that you please complete the Online Homing Application in the first instance. Unfortunately it is not possible to meet the dogs without first completing the form, thank you.
