Ebony and Tara have been adopted by their PPAR Foster Carer

Ebony and Tara are two very elderly Toy Poodles, brought in to PPAR when their owner had to move home and could not take them to the new accommodation.

Between them they have six teeth and one working eye. They were also deaf but ear cleaning solved that problem. One of them has a severe heart condition, however that does not stop them enjoying an active life.

After being cared for by two successive long term foster carers they are finally settled in one of PPAR's regular foster homes, as company for the resident blind Yorkie!

Dogs Living in a Porch

Pound Puppy Animal Rescue picked up four emaciated dogs on the 9th of January 2013. These dogs had been living in a porch their whole lives. There is one male and three females and as you can guess they have been breeding continuously. All four are very under weight, the male has a hernia and a grade 2 heart murmur. He is a medium size dog, weighs only 10kg and has scars on his face and back. We believe they have been fighting over whatever food they could get. The small tan female has a grade 3 heart murmur and weighs only 9.2kg. The other two females have hair missing and are very underweight. They also have scars all over their bodies. All four dogs show signs of being mentally abused. They have never been outside and shut down when we put leads on them. Through all the pain and suffering these dogs have been though they are so loving towards people.

We are a non-profit rescue, we can only help dogs like these by donations from people like you. You can donate via Paypal by clicking here.

Reunion Barbecue

The Annual Reunion Barbecue took place on Sunday, 18th July 2010, 10am-4pm. at Norden Farm.

Our annual get together gives the foster parents the opportunity to see the dogs we have bathed, loved, nursed and sometimes been glad to see the back of (though they wouldn't admit it)!

A Letter from Jayne

What a fab day! The whether was sunny, though breezy at times and we all turned pink. A helpful amount raised to reduce our very red vet account and we all had a fantastic day. Linda and Malcolm from the shelter we help in Ireland who do such good work were able to come and see some of their dogs that have been adopted. They were amazed at how good Queenie the Westie looked that they did not recognise her as being the same dog. We managed to get Queenies adopters to 'foster' a 12 year old Westie with heart problems. My gratitude to Norden Farm and all their staff who helped to make it a fab day for all of us. I of course had my annual snub from Prada and lovely tongue from my favourite Staffy Sue! I hope to see everyone next year and maybe at the bazaar next month.

Thank you all so much
Jayne and family

Lisa the Dachshund cross appears on the Paul O'Grady Show

Lisa the Dachshund

Lisa, the sweet little Dachshund cross that appeared on the Paul O'Grady Show on 10th May 2007, went to a lovely new home with one of the first families who phoned up about her. We had literally hundreds of enquiries about Lisa and would like to thank all the people who were interested in offering her a home. We do hope that those disappointed in not rehoming Lisa will continue to look often at our website where we have lots of lovely dogs and puppies coming up for rehoming, and will soon find their own special pet. Jayne would also like to thank all those involved in the Paul O'Grady Show for their wonderful hospitality on her and Lisa's visit to the studios, and for their help in finding Lisa a super home. And of course, the publicity gained from the show is helping to find many other dogs good homes through our Rescue and others caring for needy animals.

Muffin the Bishon Frise Puppy with a Bent Leg

picture of Muffin UPDATE: Muffin passed away peacefully on Wednesday the 4th December 2019 age 12½ years.

Jayne rescued Muffin in early February 2007 when he was about 6 weeks old. He had a badly deformed front left leg and he was so weak on the other legs that he could not stand at all. Click here for more photo's. He also had a bad ear infection and was a very depressed little puppy. He was taken to a foster home where he was given gentle exercise on his 3 good legs to strengthen them so that he would be able to walk after he had his deformed leg removed.

With tender loving care from his foster mum he has transformed from a very frightened, depressed little puppy to a happy playful pup. He recovered quickly from his surgery and is very happy in his new home. Many thanks to all those people that contributed to Muffins surgery and special thanks to Bishon Frise Rescue for their donation, help and advice.

Neglected and Unwanted

picture of puppies

The puppies were supposed to be 6/7 weeks when I collected them but we knew they were not and the vet confirmed they were more like 4/5 weeks. It is disgusting that people can be so cold about helpless animals. The farmer just wanted to get rid of them so that he could get the bitch back to work. When they arrived at their foster home they were pooing 8" worms! You wonder how so many large worms can fit in their little bodies. They vomit them up as well. Apart absorbing the food the puppy eats, the worms can give them pneumonia. We had to rush one to the vet the other evening but the poor little thing couldn't take any more and died. One of the other tiny ones went to the vet today but is back home and hopefully will get stronger by the day. Although they have had such a bad start they are still so loving and trusting. It is lovely to see their personalities develop as they start to play and get into mischief.

UPDATE: The 4 surviving puppies have been found homes.

Jeff Needed Surgery


When we cut the carpet of matted hair off Jeff's legs and found him a home we thought he was happy. Now it turns out this little dog who never cried or gave us any idea of what he had gone through, had over fifty fractures in his back legs. He has now had two operations and is recovering well. With your donations we were able to pay half of the vet bill so a big thankyou to all of you from Jeff and his family.

Hobo's Story


Hobo was rescued from a council dog pound in Swansea at the beginning of October 2002. You could see he was an old dog and he had been neglected. His fur was matted, he was very smelly and he could not walk well because of the arthritis in his hips. He was scheduled to be put to sleep but Jayne, always a softy for the old ones, rescued him and Sue became his foster mum. With a bit of love, a good bath, cut and blow dry, and some exercise he was transformed. You could almost hear him saying "There is life in the old dog yet!" as he trotted around the garden.


We ran an appeal thinking that he was going to be with Sue for the rest of his days. Some lovely people sent a donation or rang to see how he was. His story prompted Helen, a Veterinary nurse, to offer him a home. Helen has an old dog and cats and her work means she can administer to their needs. Hobo was renamed Herman to suit his new clean and tidy image.

Herman died the weekend before Christmas. He was his usual happy self in the morning of the Saturday and then about 2pm went into a seizure. He was sedated and treated but each time the sedation wore off he went back into a seizure and was very distressed. On the Sunday morning, Helen was with Herman when he was put to sleep. She said "We miss his character and excitement at the sight of a lead".

We don't know why Hobo/Herman ended up in a dog pound. It could be his owner neglected him and themselves and when they died there was nowhere for him to go. At least we know he enjoyed his last weeks and the end came quickly.
