Waggy tails rehomes dogs in dorset

Waggy Tails Rescue is a registered charity based near Poole and Bournemouth. The Waggy Tails story is about happy dogs, happy people and happy homes. We always put the animal first – then the rest will follow.

We have a no destruction policy. No healthy animal is ever put to sleep, which means that as well as re-homing we also look after dogs in long term foster homes.

These tend to be dogs who are too ill or too old to be re-homed but we feel that these “oldies” have a right to a dignified and happy retirement. We need foster homes and sponsorship for our “oldies” whose vets bills are consistently high!

our adoption criteria

  • Dogs must not be left more than 4 hours a day
  • Households cannot have children under 6 years old
  • You must live within East Dorset or West Hampshire (BH and SO40-45 postcodes)
  • You must have a secure rear garden

It is the charity’s policy not to home a dog where there is already an unneutered dog in residence.

Disclaimer Waggy Tails Rescue has no association with any other business, or organisation. There are a number of dog groomers, trainers, retailers, etc. using the same name. If anyone is using the name Waggy Tails, or similar, it is up to you, the customer, to check it out carefully.

If you love dogs but can’t have one of your own then why not sponsor a Waggy Tails dog?
