Doggie diaries

Introducing some of our longer term dogs…

The Doggie Diaries are new to Freshfields. They came about because we wanted a way of introducing some of our longer term dogs to you. Our ultimate goal is to find each of our dogs the perfect, loving home, which they so desperately deserve.

Freshfields has always had strict policies concerning 'non-destruction' and we never put healthy dogs down. It doesn't matter how long a dog might end up staying with us, provided the dog is not suffering in any way and is experiencing a good quality of life it remains safe with Freshfields, for as long as it takes to find the 'right' home!  We never descriminate against an animal because it is old or has an ongoing yet manageble health condition.

This means that we often find ourselves looking after dogs that many other rescues wouldn't consider taking. Some of these dogs need time to address issues, sometimes they just need to learn to trust again. We strongly believe that there is a home out there somewhere for every single one of our fantastic dogs.

Often dogs may be overlooked because people assume they can't be rehomed after a long time in kennels. This is not true! In these diaries we are hoping to capture the true character of each dog for you, bringing them alive in photo's and words.

We hope to show you just how wonderful they really are!

I Need A Home

Here I am back at Dawn's, and with a new toy too!! Staff have be asking us to write our Christmas lists...they dont know that we already guessed we'll all be getting a sparkly new collar again, but I'd also like a new lead if possible (I need this one because if I get too giddy I can chew a fabric lead). Fingers crossed santa brings me one, or even two!!

I Need A Home

Dawn's just told me that yet another week has gone by and still no one wants me, no one even called about me. Then she reminded me that I have to go back to the kennels tomorrow. I'm so sad. ... See MoreSee Less

Freya’s Diary

We are devastated to announce our beautiful Freya has sadly been put to sleep. Her epilepsy was taking control of her life with more and more fits daily that were becoming uncontrollable. Freya meant so much to us, we loved and cared for her for 6 years. We nurtured her from the giddy 6 month old baby that arrived as a stray, to the 6 year old princess that finally found her loving home. The only comfort for us amongst the upset we are feeling now is that she had almost 2 years in a home, where she was spoilt, loved and pampered like she deserved. Whilst Freya was in our care, our whole day revolved around her. She was the first dog (among 40 others!) that we saw in the morning, we walked her daily in the local nature reserve and we all loved our one to one Freya time. Later in the day she would come out to play on the field with us several times. She was the last dog we would say goodnight to after her last toilet break. Our whole routine of caring for all the dogs actually evolved over time so that Freya was pretty much at the centre. She was dubbed 'Britain's Loneliest Dog' by the press and yes, that exposure finally found her loving home. However, in reality Freya was far from a lonely girl. Between the staff and her dog walker friends fussing her all day, she was never lonely and was a VERY much loved little girl. Sleep tight our wonderful little Freya, you meant the world to us and you always will. XXX ... See MoreSee Less

Freshfields Animal Rescue 'Freya's' Doggie Diary

I had a visit from Dawn and Collette from Freshfields Animal Rescue where I spent 5 years waiting for my mum and dad to find me. It was great fun, I told them all about my holiday in Wales and about all my favourite walks and friends that I now have. They said I look as beautiful as ever and they were so pleased to see me. As you can see I was quite happy to see them too. I'm proof that there is a home out there for every dog no matter how long it takes. See you all soon. Love and licks, Freya xx ... See MoreSee Less
