Welcome to
FIRST FRIEND RESCUE

We are a small team of professionals who dedicate our time and passion to help rescue and rehome dogs. We offer a more personalised service and we aim to respond to emails or messages within 24 hours.

 

Founded in 2018 we are a not-for-profit organisation who rely soley on donations.

 

Dogs adopted from First Friend Rescue come with 5 weeks FREE pet insurance - whatever their age.

 

We have now opened our doors to all breeds of dogs and of all ages. If we are unable to take your dog into our care, we can offer you help to make alternative arrangements by putting you in touch with other people.

 

We specialise in Patterdales/Lakelands, Lurchers, Greyhounds, Whippets, Labradors, Spaniels and other working dogs, but other breeds are acceptable too. All of our team are dog owners with over 30 years of experienced ownership, knowledge, fostering and rehoming.

 

We always have the dogs best interests at heart and will only place a dog into a home after our strict vetting procedures have been carried out. We thrive on making sure the home is right for the dog, so they can live happily in their forever home and all their needs are taken care of.

We follow up our rehomed dogs, making sure they are comfortable and offer support and guidance to any new owner. Plus we offer 100% Rescue Back Up and will always take a dog back into our care, to ensure the safety of the dog for the rest of his/her life.
