Welcome to Dumfries & Galloway Canine Rescue Centre

Our rescue centre services the whole of Dumfries and Galloway but, when space permits, we take in dogs from pounds in England and from Northern Ireland to save them from destruction.

Adopting a Dog

Before adopting one of our rescue dogs you must complete a simple form that tells us something about you and your circumstances so that we can find you the perfect canine companion.

Rehoming Block

Our purpose-built rehoming block has individual covered runs, underfloor heating, piped music, and a grass exercise enclosure with a sandpit which is very popular!

The Kennels

Free Play in the Paddock

During the day, the dogs may have walks, play with other dogs or humans, training, grooming, health checks and veterinary treatment - so it's all go!
