“Last chance saloon ”

Written on: 26/01/2022 by Jerryu487 (1 review written)

I’ve been a volunteer for RR since 2015 . I lost my own staffie to cancer . It makes me very sad that disgruntled people who don’t get always the dog they see on the web site write such dreadful reviews about RR . Do these people know how many dogs are euthanised because they are abandoned , owners have died or they have behaviour issues . RR saves lives . Dogs might only have seven days in the pound and that’s it . DEATH comes next . So who are you people ? What right do you have to… Read Full Review

“Dogs needs always come first”

Written on: 12/01/2022 by SueRaffles (1 review written)

I had to rehome my dog and it was a very upsetting time for us both. RR were fantastic they spoke to me on the phone and I travelled to their centre with my dog. They were fantastic and I have no doubt they saved my dogs life. I will always be grateful for their help and understanding. Please do not take any notice of the negative comments about RR they will only place a dog where they will be happy and safe. You might want a particular breed but doesn't mean they are suited to you and your… Read Full Review

“100% Would Recommend Rescue Remedies Dog Rescue”

Written on: 10/01/2022 by Chris67Ma (1 review written)

I have been a supporter of Rescue Remedies dog Rescue now since May 2015 when my son and I became volunteer walkers for the dogs in their rescue. We really enjoyed doing this especially as it was a way that the dogs in their care were able to get some exercise on walks in the wooded area surrounding the rescue. The dogs loved this and you could see their excitement the moment we entered their kennel and they knew they were going for a walk. Volunteers walking dogs is important as it is… Read Full Review

“Compassionate and Responsible Rescue”

Written on: 08/01/2022 by Angie1756 (1 review written)

We adopted our American bulldog from RR a year ago. She is a wonderful dog whose rehabilitation began the moment she entered the rescue. This is a small rescue staffed entirely by volunteers who place the welfare of the dogs before money or convenience. The application process is rigorous and they take the time to explain their dog's needs and your expectations. This makes a homing feel both supported and safe. Their dogs are not easy rescues and it takes time to find the right families and… Read Full Review

“Excellent Rescue”

Written on: 02/01/2022 by Rice449 (1 review written)

We adopted a dog from here years ago and they were very helpful and good enough to actually suggest a dog we hadnt considered who was perfect. Its a rescue entirely staffed by volunteers in their own time and I know they have struggled during the pandemic when everyone suddenly wanted a dog. What needs to be understood though is its a rescue that puts the dogs needs before anything else which combined with few volunteers means comms can suffer be patient and realistic and they will see you… Read Full Review

“Best Rescue Centre”

Written on: 02/01/2022 by NessaCramp (1 review written)

A wonderful dog rescue that only matches the right dog to the right rescuer for their forever home. We rescued our Staffie 7 years ago and have not looked back since. We had a list of 4 dogs we liked the look of but we were refused 3 of them because our lifestyle would not suit those dogs. The checks on us were very stringent and extremely worthwhile to both our dog and us. They nearly always get the pairings right as we can vouch as Bailey has been the most wonderful pet and family member and… Read Full Review

“Excellent ”

Written on: 02/01/2022 by Adwyer100 (1 review written)

I have volunteered for RR and have also adopted my staffie Sasha from them and they are excellent. They have their dogs best interests at heart and many of the dogs they take in are considered lost causes by many others rescues, and would otherwise be euthanised. This is why they are so careful about who they will allow to adopt the dogs that come into their care and why it takes time to go through the process of adopting. I have personally seen people who consider themselves ‘experienced’… Read Full Review

“THE BEST RESCUE”

Written on: 01/01/2022

My husband and I were very impressed with the strict processing of our application to rescue a staffie. From our initial application right through to the day we collected our beautiful boy we were treated with extreme courtesy. We appreciated and fully understood and accepted the life time on lead policy that RR insist upon. The care and future of their dogs is of the utmost importance to them and their adoption processing and procedures reflect this. Thank you to all the staff we spoke to on… Read Full Review

“Rescue Remedies:Where the dog's needs are the most...”

Written on: 16/11/2021 by Mrs-FizzCrick (1 review written)

I am so full of admiration for Rescue Remedies, all the animals (and birds) they have rehomed. To see how their lives are enriched from being dumped, living in atrocious conditions, on the verge of being put to sleep, being an afterthought to become wonderful family members, enjoying life how they should have from the start. We have adopted two dogs from RR - Fizz an older Patterdale and Cricket, a very, very sensitive Fell Terrier. Both have been wonderful additions to our lives and we relish… Read Full Review

“Very rude doesn’t actually want to listen”

Written on: 24/03/2021 by Williamsonai316 (1 review written)

We applied as a family to adopt one of the current dogs, after reading up on her history and doing our own research we decided to apply. After several weeks we got contact to ask for further information. The lady on the phone explained all the process trying her hardest to deter our interest with threats of prosecution if we didn’t comply with guidelines. I agreed to the seriousness of rehoming a troubled dog but was still raring to meet her. The lady called back the next day and went through… Read Full Review

“Committed volunteers”

Written on: 25/09/2020

It’s unfortunate I am not meant to mention names. One particular volunteer has spent her time (all are volunteers) talking with me regarding adopting a terrier breed. Unfortunately, I didn’t meet the necessary requirements for a particular Patterjack. She talked me through why it wasn’t possible. Even better, she keeps me informed of other dogs that come into the rescue that are suitable for me. That’s commitment to the welfare of the dogs and I appreciate that and a kindness to… Read Full Review

If they havent the time to be civil to other applicants why would the volunteer have time to keep you informed when it is obvious that they have no intention of rehoming dogs just go through the woe is us act ... and I am very suprised that other rescues send dogs to them without checks . Avoid at all costs Poor dogs being incarcerated with RR

“Rescue Centre? ”

Written on: 24/05/2020 by Prince321 (1 review written)

Very sad to say our experience reflects the bad experiences others have apparently had. Having cared for our beautiful collie x for almost 17 years (1999-2016), we now felt ready to offer our home to another collie. We found a lovely 2 year old collie on the website (still available) and recognised many familiar traits from the descriptions offered. We duly filled in the comprehensive form and waited...and waited.. Apparently we're not suitable or responsible enough! Furthermore--the staff… Read Full Review

“Avoid Avoid Avoid”

Written on: 23/02/2020 by shellakelly (1 review written)

Wow! Amazing to see all the bad reviews of this place and just how many times they have been agreed with. But not surprising. If you are looking to adopt, go elsewhere. Go to Battersea, Dogs Trust etc. Anywhere but here. It's very obvious by the comments here that the folk who run this place (btw they are not experts) have very little social skills and an abundance of self importance. A trait that put above the need to re-home the dogs in their care unfortunately. We have been turned down… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/12/2020

We had the same sort of response. Why are these dogs there for months on end, when there are experienced, responsible dog owners who, like us, fit their so called criteria, being turned away? Particular dog we applied for months ago is still there. So sad and needless.

“Caring kind people”

Written on: 15/06/2019

I took a friend who wanted to rescue an older staffie and give them a happy life from when we arrived you could see the kindness of the people in caring for the rescue dogs. They were helpful and explained what needed to happen and timescales etc. Now my friend has a lovely 12 year old staffie and they both love each other, enjoy lovely walks together and a cuddle on the couch. Thank you lovely people for making happen… Read Full Review

I’m glad your friend met there standards and took a dog home and I’m sure some of the staff / volunteers are lovely
But They Obviously never spoke to the person on the phone who’s mission seems to be keep these dogs out of loving forever homes.

“Rude and Unpleasant”

Written on: 22/04/2019 by ewCarney224 (1 review written)

I filled in Rescue Remedies Dog Rescue questionnaire form for a JRT in the Gatwick centre. I was rung a week later. I came in from the garden and heard a voice on my answerphone so picked up. I didn't know who was on the phone and whoever it was said "Oh, your screening your calls". I was lectured for around half an hour about Jack Russells, I was even told I didn't train my own family Jack Russell, he allowed me to train him. She told me I appeared to only have had any experience of one Jack… Read Full Review

“Give A dog A Home!”

Written on: 27/06/2011 by SalGal53 (5 reviews written)

When my husband Mike and I decided we would like to get a dog, my first thought was to go to a dog rescue centre and not get a puppy. I trawled through several websites especially the one nearest to me (Weathersfield) but didn't see anything that took my eye. I then came across Rescue Remedies website which was a small centre saving dogs about to be put down and mainly terrier type dogs. I have had two Staffordshire bull terriers before and know them to be loving and loyal dogs. The website… Read Full Review
