The Charity was started by Shelagh Meredith in 1994 after she answered an advertisement. A rescue in Wales was looking for homes for dogs, so she volunteered to help. Since then thousands of unwanted and abandoned dogs have been re-homed into new, loving family environments. We have also found new homes for cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, rats, hamsters, mice, budgies, one-legged cockatiels, battery chickens, 3 horses, 2 goats, 1 duck and a parrot.
You may have seen our ambulance around the local area, but do you know how much it costs to run it a month? £750! If you are a local business and would like to sponsor and keep running this valuable resource then contact us today.

None of what Waggy Tails does would be possible without a large network of volunteers and a few paid staff members.
However, we receive no government grants and our vets bills are over £6,000 per month.
