These are two of the most adorable and loving dogs we've had at the Refuge - Patches and Buttons are both social little dogs who love to interact with people and are looking for a loving home to retire together. They are a particular favourite of our patron, Melanie Greensmith from fashion brand Wheels and Dollbaby, who stopped recently to say hello to our pooches and officially start the building of our new kennels project (managed by PACT Construction).

Without the very special dog lovers who have supported us over the years, our Home would simply not have been able to survive for over 75 years.  So we thought it was about time we acknowledged the people who have remembered us in their will over the years.

He may look big and tough, but on the inside, Ralph is just a big softie. He is an affectionate and big doofus of a dog. Put simply, Ralph is a bit of a marshmallow.

We try to pamper our dogs as much as possible whilst they're in our care, so that their time in the kennels is less stressful.
