UPDATE - Kai has had a few behavioural training sessions and is now much better with other dog, he no longer lungs at them, and most times just looks away and ignores them.  So while we would not recommend putting him in home with other dogs just yet, he is definitely ready for a home with people who can continue working with him for a few month until he is over his dislike for other dogs. 

He is safe for this week but next week is a new chapter ,,,  we work one day at a time and fight to find his new home and save him.  He is absolutely wonderful with people, so affectionate, so loving, so calm and gentle.  Kai is a super boy, well worth saving!!!  He has so much love to give, please  help him!


KAI - Boxer x Staffy, 3 years old, Male (Neutered), Chipped, Vaccinated.

Kai is not good with other dogs but is great with people, He is awaiting euthanasia for biting a small dog, but he is so lovely that everyone involved is trying to find that special home for him with no other pets, no dogs, no cats, etc.  Kai should have been put to sleep Thursday but everyone who has met him is working so hard to find a home for him as his personality with people is great, he plays fetch, loves people, is very affectionate and so special it is heartbreaking to see this lovely boy ,,,  this young life ,,, come to an  end.

Kai is not with CARE but are trying to help prevent another death of a dog that just needs a particular kind of home.   We are also willing to do the behavioural work with the new owner, to stop/cure his aggression to other dogs   This is 95% achievable so do not think Kia is a hopeless case.  With proper behavioural intervention this can be stopped in just about every case!

We know how to get in touch with the keeper so PLEASE, PLEASE if you can offer him a home or even foster home for a few weeks please contact us.

CHARLIE & LOLA Ė Podenco types, Male & Female (both Neutered), Brother and Sister, Blood tested for Leish, heartworm and tick fever in the June time 2018 (Charlie was positive in tick fever but is fine now after a course of antibiotics), they are clear of all diseases.

These two caught our eye and touched our hearts, you can look into their eyes and see two beautiful souls, they seem to have been messed about too much by humans and CARE want to do whatever we can to help get them into a permanent home, someone who wonít take them to the pound to be killed when they have enough of them, they donít deserve this kind of treatment !! So have a read of the history below and if you can offer them a permanent home, a good life style for the rest of their lives which we estimate to be 5 or 6 years, then please let us know.

Lola and Charlie must be kept together; they are devoted to each other. Lola looks after Charlie and he needs her. She is his protector it seems.

So far we cannot bring these two into the UK until they have a home lined up, once we have a definite interest, then we will fund raise to pay for the cost of getting them here (about £800 we are told).  CARE fully understand this is a very long shot, trying to find help/home for 2 dogs at 10 years old, but we know from almost 30 yearsí experience, there is the right home out there for every dog, we just have to find it,,, IF ITS YOU, PLEASE DONíT DELAY, HELP CHARLIE & LOLA TODAY!

Their story:

They had an owner until they were aged 5 but  then she decided she couldn't keep them anymore. They were fostered for one year until a new home was found.  That owner had them for 4 years until she had to move.   She left them at the pound in May 2018, where the Spanish rescue lady got them out.   They then went to a dog minder for a month until a foster home was found.

The Foster home says they are both so wonderful and well behaved, so good with adults and her children, and often you don't even know they are there because they are so quiet, They are just the best dogs ever, and so good and loving.  Good with other dogs as well.

Recently, somehow a large dog got into the garden and attacked Lola (see last photo).  Lola had extensive vet surgery to survive.  Charlie who is normally dependant on Lola was desperate to help her, but the foster people, very fortunately, managed to get the dog off Lola and stop further attack on Charlie.


So this is where the story is at the moment, would anyone like two wonderful, calm, gentle, loving dogs that donít require much exercise and will love you to bits in return for a home and kindness?

GARY (age 8) and MIRA (age 7) -  Beagles, Male (Neutered) and Feemale (Will be neutered), Chipped and Vaccinated, Blood test to be done and if clear they will be able to come.  They are perfect with children and adults but donít like cats,  Gary has a good character, while Mira can be a bit bossy at times, but still a lovely girl.

They are with the family in Spain who decided they donít want them anymore !!! and will put them in the municipal pound, where they will eventually die of violence, starvation, heartbreak or killed by the pound. 

Some wonderful rescue people in Spain are trying to help them and CARE may be able to bring them into the UK for a home, but we need someone who will be interested in adoption before they can travel.  Also they will be blood tested and only travel here if they are disease free.


Please let CARE know if you are interested in helping these two lovely dogs, they donít seem to have a chance where they are right now.  We have to helpÖ.
