Animal Shelters and dog pounds can differ. Some will have a no-kill policy meaning that no healthy dog will ever be destroyed. Others will allocate a specified time for a home to be found before the animal is destroyed. Always ask and never presume that a dog will be re-homed. Contact us for more information.

If you are an animal related organisation and would like to be added to this site please contact us.
