“Fabulously caring facility run with love and dedication”

Written on: 10/12/2018 by SonnysHome (1 review written)

We've had two gorgeous dogs from Meadow Green and feel very grateful to them for the amazing work they do in providing shelter, food, care, and love for so many abused and abandoned creatures. This is a small facility that runs on a very tight budget, but there's no shortage of love here. Each time we visit the centre it's abuzz with a constant chorus of barking, volunteers taking excited and happy dogs of all shapes and sizes out for walks around the common, families coming to find a new… Read Full Review

“Not recomendable”

Written on: 18/04/2016 by 467Clark (1 review written)

Visited recently and was ingnored most of the time. I understand they do a difficult job, for little reward, and the animals must come first. But when I arrived they were not busy. They need to improve thier people skills in order to help he dogs to find a new home… Read Full Review

“Wonderful Rescue Centre!”

Written on: 30/05/2012 by hhhorse (1 review written)

We went to Meadowgreen recently and were very impressed with the wonderful care and attention the dogs get. All dogs looked happy and healthy and each kennel was spotlessly clean with no "Doggy Smell" There was a very good atmosphere and the staff and owners were very friendly and really understood what sort of dog would suit us. The dogs are wormed, de-fleaed and bathed and the vet visits weekly and checks the dogs over and gives them their vacinations. Consequently we have rehomed a super… Read Full Review

“The most wonderful dog..”

Written on: 21/09/2011 by lindyloo0 (2 reviews written)

We lost our beloved Gt Dane to old age and thought we wouldn't get another dog due to how upsetting it was when they go, but after a few months the house felt so empty that my husband and I decided that we would get a rescue dog and give it a loving home. We looked on different websites and went to a couple of homes to see some of the dogs. What we liked about Meadowgreen was you could take a dog out for a lengthy walk to see how you and the dog got on and then wasn't pressurised in taking… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/04/2011

I rehomed a Lab/staffy cross. Whilst on my first visit to see patch i noticed how busy these people were and discovering they are all volunteers, im disgusted to hear that some of you werent happy with this rescue. My thoughts are unless if you run a rescue centre yourself and have exerience of this, You have absolutely no right to criticise. Centre staff and volunteer dog walkers should be praised and not have their actions questioned. (After all if you know it all), ill look forward to… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/03/2011 by CharlieC91 (1 review written)

A little confused as some comments on this review of MEADOW GREEN RESCUE near Norwich.

As a breed co-ordinater for our clubs rescue I worked occasionally with Meadow Green helping them when we could and vice versa.

The owners are wonderful people, two of which 'work' in the rescue whilst another has a full time job to bring in more money to help pay the rescue bills........ lets not forget this is a small rescue with no funding other than what the owners get as donations, they aren't doing it… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/01/2011

Visited today and reserved a greyhound. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Thank goodness meadow green exists because if they didn't these dogs would just get put down. If the people who have written the negative reviews are looking for someone to blame then blame our government for not bringing back licensing of pets. Blame the people that see a staffie asa status dog rather than a pet and friend. And blame the people that think watching greyhounds race after a stuffed toy is a bit of… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/09/2010

i read in one of there reviews that if there is no money no dog. Well if you think about it if you cant afford the recommended donation how can you before the bills such as vet care food and the occasional treat? What you have got to remember is most of these gorgeous dogs have been beaten abused or even left to fend for themselves! The kennel girls are always walking these dogs with many happy dog walkers. They always have fresh water and cleaned out and fed at least twice a day! All the dogs… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/08/2010

I think the people giving this outfit a poor review are extremely selfish and blinkered in their views. What must be remembered is that every dog that passes through the place has been given a second chance, without Meadow Green, every one of those dogs would probably been have been destroyed. If you should have a gripe with anyone it should be your local council for not providing kenneling or funding for this creatures, and of course the humans that abandon them, like its their right to have… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/05/2010

I know 2 people that have adopted dogs from here and both dogs came with kennel cough followed shortly by huge vet bills. One of the dogs was so ill it nearly died. When Meadow green were contacted they said that the dog must have caught it after they were re homed even though the dog that nearly died was noticed to be ill and have a very high temp as soon as it got home from being collected from Meadow green. I think they do a wonderful job and hats off to them but you cannot re home a dog… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/04/2010

I had wanted to get a dog for 6 years, since my last loved GSD dog died but both my husband and I decided to wait until we could give 24/7 to another dog. However, in January of this year we had a burglary at home and because I was so distraught my husband thought it would be the best time to look for another dog to both love and make me feel more safe in our home.

We went to meadowgreen and found a lovely quiet GSD. We took him for a walk and though he at the time had diahorrea we were… Read Full Review

You're clearly an ignorant woman, this place is a charity and you expect them to pay for your vets bills? You took the dog on, as does anyone rescuing a dog, knowing that it could easily have problems or health issues, and then winge and complain about having to pay for it.
Get a grip.

“Meadow Green has given us two great dogs. Four years...”

Written on: 03/04/2010

Meadow Green has given us two great dogs. Four years ago we adopted Coco a 7 year old gorgeous Staffie girl who filled out house with love and affection for 3 and a half years before passing away after a long fight with cancer. We then adopted Steffi a Lab Staffie cross. We knew she was an old girl of around 11 and we wanted to give her comfort for as long as we could. Just over three months was not long enough for us but atleast she knew love and we hope had a wonderful end to her life. Two… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/03/2010 by The dog walker (1 review written)

It is very sad that people making negative comments on here about Meadowgreen dog rescue at Loddon, probably go there for 5 minutes and make these comments without really knowing the place or the staff. I go there regularly to walk the dogs and there are lots of other dog walkers going there too. So to say the dogs never get walked is totally incorrect. The girls are rushed off their feet, they work so hard, keeping the dogs kennels clean and sorting out their needs. I have seen nothing but… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/03/2010

My husband and I are regular dog walkers at Meadowgreen dog rescue and we love it. Having spent a lot of time there on a regular basis we are a good judge of character for the place. We are sad to read the negative reviews on here as we have never experienced negativity. The small group of staff are all very friendly and always find time to talk to us, despite being incredibly busy looking after about 50 dogs! If they sometimes come across as being a little rushed off their feet, it is because… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2010

I rehomed my dog about a year and a half ago from meadow green, the kennels were herendous and small! The dogs were very stressed, and the owwner was somewhat unhelpful. However, in their defence, their dogs come with jabs, sterilisation and a microchip, all for the compulsoary donation of £100, which i think they should just call a price, afterall, no money no dog. Some charity!! "Meadow green is a business" i read in someone elses review, this is far from the truth, £100 per occasionally… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/02/2010

We had visited many shelters and must admit that we were taken aback by the conditions in, and the running of the shelter. Dogs were in badly lit, noisey concrete pens - what I think looked like old cattle pens. Their bedding was lovely and clean and there was fresh food and water in every stall.
During all our visits I found a lot of the staff to be not very direct in answering a lot of our questions and actually tended to avoid us when we arrived. The office was frequently unstaffed… Read Full Review
