“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

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
