Look who arrived today

Look at this beautiful boy! No, it is not Bertie (now Fred) who has come back. Nor is it Gwen, who is living a life of luxury in England. Please meet Munroe, a one year old Fauve de Bretagne. He is fabulous on the lead and happy to be patted. I think he is going to be a real star and I am going to contact the wonderful people at Fauve Rescue UK to see if they can help us find him a home.
In other news, a great supporter of the refuge has taken Alexia home to foster, so she will be warm and loved until the right home can be found. 

Back to where we were…..

After the joy of rehoming 7 dogs on Saturday, we are back to square one, with 7 dogs in today. Five of them are puppies, and they are going to be BIG dogs! 
Here is one of our lovely volunteers, Audrey, with as many puppies as she can hold. Not many, but she is not exactly big herself!Image

7 dogs adopted today- amazing!

Another emotional day. With a friend I delivered lovely Calie to her new home. I cried when I left her, even though I know she will be so happy there! I arrived back at the refuge to find that 6 other dogs had found homes today, which was just wonderful news and has helped to raise morale amongst volunteers and employees alike. See my website (www.dogrescuecarcassonne.co.uk) to see exactly who left, or follow us on Facebook to see all the latest, link on the right.
Just for a taster, here is the wonderful Fabio, a pedigree Dogue Argentin who was abandoned at the railway station in Carcassonne because his owner didn’t want to pay for his train ticket!


Busy day, lots of comings and goings….

Well, three dogs found their owners today, two of whom had only just arrived yesterday, so that can be forgiven, but who leaves it 3 weeks before looking for their dog? Still it is good news for them all, and also for little Idylle, who found a home today. Here she is, and I am hoping for news of her, as she went to great supporters of the refuge. Two new dogs arrived, tho, so we are almost back where we started in terms of numbers Image

Harley finds a home!


Wow, what am emotional day. This is Harley, who has just left the refuge after a whopping 18 months. I could never understand why no one wanted him, but such is often the fate of the small brown mutt!
Happy new life, Harley!

Three dogs out today!

We said goodbye to our big beautiful Brooklyn, who had such a horrid life before arriving at the refuge. It was also the start of a new life for two of our littlies, firstly Dillon who arrived in a catatonic state following some kind of trauma (maybe it is a good thing that dogs can’t speak) and also to Bertie, a basset fauve de Bretagne, who has gone off to live with a lovely looking miniature schnauzer.
One dog arrived, and I will post him on my site tomorrow (www.dogrescuecarcassonne.co.uk) Handsome is his name, with good reason!



We thought we had a home for Alexia, but it has fallen through. Surely someone must want this lovely girl, she is only 11 months old, and is weighs under 10 kg as she was malnourished as a puppy. Alexia is chipped and sterilised.

Reservation of Calie.


Calie was abandoned along with a chihuahua, who was adopted immediately. However having met Calie’s new family, I think she is going to be just as happy as his is!
