Epsom Canine Rescue was formed in 1995 to specialise in unwanted and subsequently neglected dogs within the local vicinity of Epsom. More recently we have also started to assist in helping rehome Welsh pound dogs whose plight is dire.
Our principle role is the rescue and re-homing of unwanted and stray canines, undertaking veterinary treatment if necessary and neutering where possible prior to sourcing a suitable new home. Any animals in distress that we are unable to deal with directly due to our limited size and resources are referred immediately to other specialist organisations.
All potential new homes are checked thoroughly before the dog is released into their care and subsequent follow-up calls are made to ensure that the animal settles and to eliminate any problems that may arise.
We encourage the use of experienced foster homes during the re-homing process especially with either very young or very old charges, and try to use boarding kennels as a last resort.
All our activities are carried out on a purely voluntary basis and financed solely by self generated funds and your contributions, monetary or otherwise.
Our dogs are homed as family pets, most having had a bad start in life and we do not place any dogs in a home where they would be living outside or left alone for long periods of time.
We never destroy a healthy dog, so please help us to give them a second chance.
