Dumfries and Galloway Canine Rescue Centre at Dovecotewell, Dumfries, requires dog adoption, dog sponsorship and donations, not just of money but 'doggy items'.

"We take in around 350 dogs a year and have consistently rehomed about 300 during each year of our operations to date. We are very proud that there are a great many people whose lives have been enriched by the companionship given by one of our dogs. Our web site has enabled us to reach out beyond Dumfries and Galloway and we have rehomed dogs from Dorset to Orkney."

What can you do to help? You might be able to offer:

1) A loving home for our rescue dogs

2) To act as an escort for dogs to their new homes, accompanying them to their final destinations

3) Donations of dog food

4) Help with walking and playing with the dogs

5) Dog behaviourist skills, to specific dogs overcome particular issues

6) Veterinary skills, to neuter dogs for free and/or provide other veterinary assistance

7) Vaccine donations

8) Help with meeting our veterinary bills
