Working to Re-Home Companion Animals in Sussex
Sussex Pet Rescue Charitable Trust
Registered Charity No.1048731
Please note: Sussex Pet Rescue is not connected in any way with 'Pet Rescue Sussex' which is not a registered Charity. We have been in operation for over 50 years and our registered charity No. is above.
We always have a list of dogs waiting for new homes. The majority are in ‘foster homes’ (see our ‘fostering’ and 'Dogs for Adoption' pages) and some may be waiting in their existing homes until foster spaces become available. Through assessing the dogs and meeting prospective new owners, we try to ‘make a match’ that will last the dog’s lifetime.
Please note – we are only able to home our dogs within the Sussex, South Surrey and West Kent areas. This is so that we can carry out a home check and follow up visit. It also ensures that we are able to provide post-adoption advice should it be needed.
We also promote a neutering scheme to help prevent unwanted litters of most small pets and thereby minimise the number of puppies and other animals that need re-homing. For further information on our scheme for people receiving benefits, please contact - Jan Meredith on 01403 864742.
Sussex Pet Rescue is run mostly by volunteers. We are a network of helpers who do a variety of tasks from transporting dogs to vets, answering telephone enquiries, visiting prospective new owners and homes, following up dogs in their new homes, helping with fund raising and publicity, and caring for dogs whilst they are awaiting new homes. We cover all our volunteers’ expenses.
We do NOT receive any grants from
statutory bodies but rely totally on donations
from the public and organisations that raise money on our behalf.
If you could help with fund raising, please go to
our ‘Be a Volunteer’ page for contact details.
are also pleased to receive any dog/cat food donations and our grateful
