General do's and dont's

The information on this page is to make sure your dogs will be safe when you collect them and listen to the advice our rescuer, Elena Popa, gives you as she has had many years and experience of dealing with these dogs and does understand them. Please don’t think you know better - a new dog in your home, such an important member, has many needs but the most important one is safety.

Settling in your new family member

We all know what a pleasure it is to welcome a new dog into our homes and to give him/her a fantastic life. However, please keep in mind that a dog doesn’t know of your good intentions and will feel overwhelmed by so much attention and new people around. Please follow our advice for your new arrival and you will have a happy life with your new addition to the family.

Supporting RACE

There are many ways for you to support RACE aside from adopting our dogs. You can sponsor £10 per month towards a dog/puppy/cat food, become an emergency backup fosterer, knit or donate dog coats/blankets, hold fundraisers such as a coffee morning or a cake sale, plus like and share our Facebook posts. We also run auctions on Facebook to raise money and accept one-off or monthly donations.
