PRESS RELEASE : Rain Rescue saves dogs abandoned with note ‘PLEASE FIND US A HOME’


Local animal rescue charity, Rain Rescue have taken in two elderly dogs who were found by dog wardens with a note saying ‘Please find us a home’ tucked into their coat pocket.

Lauren Sanderson, Rain Rescue’s Deputy Manager, said: “They were found wandering the streets and when they arrived back at the pound they checked the coats they were wearing, tucked inside the pocket was a note saying ‘Please find us a new home.’ It is really sad to see two elderly dogs end up in kennels like this and although abandonment is never excusable it is clear that they have been loved by someone who clearly wanted to ensure they were looked after. We are receiving more and more calls to help owners who are in times of desperate need and don’t know where else to turn with their pets.”

Lottie and Lola, a crossbreed and small terrier have been with the charity just a few days but already have had to be seen by a vet as they are both suffering from Kennel Cough something that is not unusual in kennels but something that must be treated and monitored closely especially for senior dogs.

In 2016 Rain Rescue saved over 470 dogs and cats from crisis situations.
