about us

We are a small registered charity dedicated to saving the lives of dogs in council pounds. A small number of dogs come in our care via other circumstances.


After dogs arrive at the pound, the dogs have just 7 days to be claimed by their owners. After the 7 days have passed, if there is a space available they will go to a rescue organisation. If there isn't space, they will be destroyed. 


With the exception of the kennel staff we are all volunteers and depend on your help to save these dogs. If you can help by fundraising, donating, transporting, fostering or just sharing our dogs profiles it will all help save a life. Together lets make sure no dog dies needlessly. ​​

We are based in Carmarthenshire, near Llandeilo
