Since we've been looking for a dog we've had a bit of trouble finding up to date information on the rescue organisations in Cornwall.  I've decided to include it on Agility Bits. I have made a start with the listings below but so far I haven't included the breed rescues.  I've found some contact details on the web but I know that some of these are out of date so please bear with me while I check them out. 

Cider, Hazel and Jamie below were all rescued by us and largely overcame their problems.  We know that Cider was kept in a yard and kicked and that Hazel and Jamie were strays.  We have had so much pleasure from our dogs but it hasn't all been easy.  If you think you might be able to rehome a dog in Cornwall please check out the rescue organisations below.

Cornish Rescues

RSPCA at St Columb  In 1993 the four RSPCA branches in Cornwall pooled their resources and became one registered charity.  They opened the William and Patricia Venton RSPCA Branch Animal Centre at Higher Quoit in St Columb.  This is now the focus for the RSPCA work in Cornwall.  The site has all the news and events and also lots of information on how to adopt an animal from the RSPCA.  There are photos of the animals needing new homes and these include dogs, cats and other animals such as pet rats and rabbits. 

St Francis Home For Animals at Newquay "We look after and re home homeless and lost dogs of all ages and types. We lavish care and attention on them all. We are proud of the fact that within a short while the sad, lost and frightened dogs learn, often for the first time in their lives, that there are gentle, kind and loving humans around them in whom they can trust."  This is where Jamie came from and also our previous dog, Hazel.  The site has photos of the dogs available for rehoming and you can ring them for details if you see a dog you like.

National Animal Welfare Trust at Hayle   The Trust is now one of the top 10 animal rescue and re-homing charities in England, and runs 5 rescue & re-homing centres across the country.  The site has photos and descriptions of the animals available for rehoming including dogs, cats rabbits and guinea pigs.
