Why greenacres rescue is so needed

Greenacres is an animal rescue centre in the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside. We founded in June 2008, when the need for our effort was recognised. We try our very best to help any animal in need, our aim is the three R’s – Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome.

Greenacres Rescue believes that every animal deserves a second chance, and we are asking you to help us give them just that.

Although we work with both dogs and cats, we also help a host of other animals, even providing permanent sanctuary placements for some of the larger or unhomeable animals. We work from the base of our rescue centre but also have a loyal band of fosterer’s that provide short and long-term placements depending on the animals needs. Priority is always given to animals at risk of euthanasia or animals in danger, for this reason we work with various organisations and individuals helping dogs from council pounds, sadly, many dogs face euthanasia if they are not claimed in seven days – wherever possible we step in to offer refuge for these animals until they can find a forever home.

As of April 1st 2016 Greenacres Animal Rescue will also provide the care for any dog found straying in Pembrokeshire. We will hold the dog for seven days if then it is not claimed by its owner it will be transferred over for us to look for a forever home. This maybe done through our centre or through one of the many organisations what we work with – all of these hold the same values and policies as ourselves. If you have lost a pet please look on the ‘LOST DOGS’ page to see if it has been brought into our care. 

Our rescue centre is completely self funded from our shops throughout Pembrokeshire and our fundraising events if you would like know more about how you can donate or financially support us please take a look at the donations page or get in touch. 

Adoptions fees, why are they needed?

Before adoption, every one of our little charges is treated for parasites, micro-chipped and neutered (if of appropriate age). Puppies are also given a full course of vaccinations. If any need any treatment or procedures such as dental work is all carried out before adoption. The adoption fee is to help cover at least some of the cost.

It is not unusual for a dog to cost £300+ before it is ready to find its new home.

The adoption fee we request is a minimum of £100 for a adult dog, £130 for a fully vaccinated puppy… and just £30 for a micro-chipped cat or kitten. Every penny of adoption fees go towards covering our rapidly increasing costs to care for the animal you are adopting.
