The rescue have a none destruction policy and now deal with around 1300 dogs a year which represents over 1% of the total UK stray and abandoned dogs annually as recorded by the Dogs Trust. Since the rescue changed hands in mid 2003, they have found homes for nearly 4,000 dogs. This makes the rescue the largest independently funded rescue in the UK.
The rescue center are renowned for helping dogs from all walks of lives from those who have been abandoned and found as strays, dogs tied up outside of the rescue or along the roads close by, dogs who have lost their owners and have no-one else to look after them, those who have been abused and unloved and many more. Once accepted into the rescue a dog stays until a home is found no matter what their age or how long it takes.
People travel from all around the country to visit the rescue center due to their excellent reputation of the love and care they give to each and every dog who passes through the doors of Babbington.
Did you know it costs more than £600 a day to feed, care and provide vet services for the dogs they have in at any one time.
All of their income goes straight to our dogs to pay for vaccinations, spaying/neutering, any other vet care needed, microchipping, food, water, heating, bedding, staff and lots more to ensure these dogs get the best care and help them find their forever home.
